Saxons too much for NC

As expected, a veteran two-time 4A state semifinalist football team proved too much for a rebuilding 3A program coming off a winless season and with a new coach. The Ferris Saxons poured in 31 first-quarter points (four on safeties) and won 59-0 in a game that implemented the state’s new running clock rule. Two Saxon quarterbacks threw for 359 yards and five touchdowns. About the only thing visibly missing was a running game which must factor over the next few weeks when the Saxons face Gonzaga Prep, Mead and Mt. Spokane in the “Murderer’s Row” portion of the GSL season. NC was mistake prone early, but moved the ball well in the second quarter and might have scored a couple times if not for some dropped passes.
