There is little doubt what Lake City coach Van Troxel will do when faced with playing for the tie or the victory. The gamble to go for two paid off for the Timberwolves on Friday night when senior quarterback Mark Smyly barged his way into the end zone to give LC a 22-21 win over third-ranked Post Falls in the 5A Inland Empire League football opener for both teams. “In 34 years (of coaching) I have gone for two to win every time,” Troxel said. “I never will (go for the tie), that is just not me. I want my football team to be that way. I want them to go to strive to be winners no matter what.” The win was LC’s sixth straight over Post Falls. But it was by no means the easiest during that stretch/Greg Lee, SR. More here.
