Friday night football


Wow, what a showing by the Greater Spokane League 4A teams.

I said earlier in the year that I thought the GSL 4A would prove to be better than the Columbia Basin Big Nine 4A teams, and the GSL confirmed it last night.

Mead was ever so impressive in its 68-22 shellacking of Davis. Ferris' playoff savvy proved pivotal as the Saxons pulled out a 38-31 win over Eisenhower. And Central Valley pulled off a stunning 24-0 win over CBBN champ Chiawana at Pasco, setting up a rematch with Ferris this week.

In 3A play-in games, the CBBN shut out the GSL.

Here's our area roundup.

Coeur d'Alene had its closest game this season, topping Mountain View of Meridian 27-14 in a State 5A playoff opener while Lake City got throtted at Eagle.

NEXT WEEK: Just talked with GSL secretary Herb Rotchford. Ferris and CV would like to play Friday at 6 p.m. at Albi. The date/time for Mead/Skyline won't be set until Monday, Rotchford said. It appears it will likely be a Saturday afternoon game at Albi.

QUESTON: What are your thoughts about Friday's games?
