Another Friday night in the books


We're on the way to Seattle for today's Cougar game, so this will be short.

We saw parts of two games last night, Central Valley at Gonzaga Prep and Ferris vs. Lewis and Clark at Albi.

Friday was a big night in high school football where two things became clear: North Idaho football is superior this season, and the Greater Spokane League race is up in the air.

Here are our stories, starting with the South Hill battle.

Ferris lost starting quarterback – and safety – Shawn Stockton with a broken clavicle early, but still survived to defeat LC.

Coeur d'Alene scored six times to handle one of the GSL's preseason favorites, Mead.

Lake City cemented its 5A ranking with an easy win over Sandpoint.

Post Falls battled past a game Cheney team.

In what may have been the best game of the night, Timberlake prevailed over Riverside in overtime.

A quick look around Washington shows Davis snapped the state's longest losing streak, 31 games, with a 20-16 win over Sunnyside; Pasco held off Moses Lake in Moses Lake; Eastlake routed Woodinville; Richland stopped Walla Walla and its new offense; Eisenhower is 3-0 after breezing past Wenatchee; Southridge picked up its first win; Lake Stevens handed Monroe its first loss of the year; and Lincoln powered past Mount Tahoma.

Don't forget, we'll be covering the Cougar game from before-the-start t after-the-finish today. Click in.
