No praying in the end zone?

A Tumwater player scored a touchdown in the semifinal win over East Valley on Monday, then dropped to one knee and pointed to the sky. He was praying. Seconds later, a referee threw a flag for unsportsmanlike behavior.

Check out this video posted by the Seattle Times here. And Gail Wood of The Olympian newspaper and a former Coeur d’Alene Press reporter has a story about the flap here.

The Tacoma News Tribune posted a different video here.

Lewiston at CdA girls ppd

The anticipated early showdown between three-time defending Idaho 5A state girls basketball champ Coeur d’Alene and runner-up Lewiston, scheduled for tonight at CdA, has been postponed because of the storm passing through the area. No makeup date has been announced.

In fact, it looks like most of tonight’s schedule will be wiped out in North Idaho.

All-GSL, All-North Idaho teams


Make sure to check out Thursday’s newspaper if you live in the Spokane area for the All-Greater Spokane League photos and team lists and if you live in North Idaho we’ll have our All-North Idaho Football, Boys and Girls Soccer and Volleyball team photos and lists along with the all-league lists for the other sports and leagues.

And the photos are in living color!

Coeur d’Alene, state champ!

The Coeur d’Alene football team did little wrong, and the result was the Vikings’ first state championship since 1985. The Viks won 28-7 over Centennial at the Kibbie Dome.

Here is the story.

Weather perfect in Moscow

It’s a balmy 72 degrees in Moscow tonight - INDOORS, that is!

About 35 minutes away from kickoff. Had some computer issues as I always seem to have at the Kibbie Dome, but we’re up and running now and will be tweeting.

Prep football Friday, Saturday

A reminder that I’ll be tweeting updates from the Idaho 5A state football championship, between Coeur d’Alene and Centennial, tonight. And on Saturday, I’ll be in Pasco for the Ferris/Chiawana 4A quarterfinal. I’ll also be passing along scores from other games.

I will be at the Idaho State 5A football championship game Friday in Moscow between Coeur d’Alene and Centennial and will be posting tweet updates throughout the game. You can follow my tweets at twitter.com/SRpreps.

On Saturday, I can’t be at multiple places at once. I will be staffing the Ferris/Chiawana 4A quarterfinal in Pasco. I confirmed yesterday that I will have pressbox access and will be tweeting throughout the game. I’ll also tweet updates on the other games as scores/updates are fed to me.

The usual wide selection of things offered on our Prep Page.
