A typical night of prep football


There were some great games last night, which isn't unusual. It seems like every week in high school football something spectacular happens.

Think they were dancing in Garfield and Palouse last night? The Vikings ended LaCrosse-Washtucna's 49-game winning streak with a 46-18 victory in Washtucna. Gar-Pal led 32-6 at half behind the devastating running of Jesse Cole. Here is the Seattle Times story from Craig Smith, on his way to cover the Cougars today.

Think they were dancing on the top of the South Hill, after Ferris' comeback, 24-17 overtime victory over East Valley? The Saxons and Lewis and Clark, which stopped Mead 21-6 in the Albi Stadium nightcap, are both 2-0 going into next Friday's South Hill rivalry game.

But that wasn't all we covered this morning in our two editions of The Spokesman-Review. Here are links to the rest of the stories: Colville over Lakeland; Gonzaga Prep blasting Tacoma's Bellarmine Prep again; Coeur d'Alene struggling against Centennial; and Capital of Boise handling Post Falls.

A sampling of game stories from around the state of Washington: Bellevue wins again, this time hammering Mount Si; Kentridge routs Rogers of Puyallup; Lake Washington comes from 18 points behind to stun Garfield; Lakes scores in the waning seconds, adds a two-point conversion and edges South Kitsap, 32-31; Olympia pounds Capital; undefeated Richland makes Southridge 0-2 after 21-20 win; 3A Kamiakin suprises 4A No. 1 Pasco, 31-17; Prosser rolls again, this time over East Valley (Yakima); Ferndale keeps winning streak alive by defeating Sehome; and Everett holds off Cascade in first meeting in three years.
