Favorites win in prep showdowns


Friday night as a big one in prep football, with a showdown to savor on both sides of the border. Both went to the favorites.

In Idaho, Lake City coach Van Troxel wasn't happy, but his Timberwolves earned a 21-18 win over intracity rival Coeur d'Alene.

At Albi Stadium, before a crowd that harkened back – in size at least – to the old days, Gonzaga Prep took advantage of mistakes to defeat Ferris 24-10.
