The appetizer before the main course


As we get closer to the weekend, the prep action begins to heat up, building to tonight's climax. Thursday was no different.

In the lone Greater Spokane League football game, Lewis and Clark intercepted a pass on the game's first play, then proceeded to play better in a 39-0 romp over Shadle Park.

In Idaho girls soccer, Coeur d'Alene finally penetrated the tough Lakeland defense and won 1-0.

There were also prep roundups from Idaho and Washington.

It was a light night on the West Side as well, with one football game in the Times as part of a prep roundup, though there was a big volleyball showdown in the South Sound, with Rogers (Puyallup) defeating Puyallup in three and another big one in Bainbridge, with Blanchet sweeping the hosts in three.

Rene Ferran of Tri-Cities has his picks for Columbia Basin games. The biggest game in the CBL tonight is Moses Lake at Eisenhower. Speaking of Ike, the Cadets' volleyball team keeps getting better.

The Sunfair Invitational cross country meet is this Saturday in Yakima and the Herald-Republic has an advance.

Undefeated Lynden plays undefeated Ferndale tonight in a matchup of Northwest Washington's two best teams. Though Lynden and Ferndale are both 4-0, the Lions are a 2A school, while Ferndale is 3A, so the game has no league consequences.

In southern Idaho, undefeated Centennial held on to defeat Borah 40-34. Tonight, undefeated Capital visits once-defeated Mountain View in Meridian.

By the way, after praising the readership of this column for their intelligent, adult comments about an issue, there was an unsigned one posted of a personal nature that didn't deserve the light of day. I guess not eveyone understands you can have a discussion about priorities and philosophies without it having to degenerate to name-calling. Too bad. Thanks again to the 99 percent of you who are willing to discuss issues intelligently.
