Gsl At A Glance

Lewis and Clark 22, Ferris 6

Key play

Ferris, trailing 8-6, moved from its 21 to the LC 12 after the second-half kickoff when Mike Stueckle stepped in front of a Ferris receiver at the 2, grabbed Justin Bursch’s errant pass and raced 53 yards to the Saxons 45. Eight plays later, the Tigers scored.

Stars of the game

Stueckle had the big play on a defense that allowed 222 yards passing but just one big scoring play. “It was just zone coverage, basically,” he said of the interception. “We just had to read their receivers to see what they were doing and when the ball was thrown, break.” The Saxons only had 40 yards rushing.


The combined halftime for the dual homecoming was spectacular - and long. Ferris brought its homecoming royalty in on motorcycles…. The regular Spokane referees also had a homecoming, and the first penalty was called on the first play from scrimmage. Making up for lost time after their oneweek strike, 16 penalties were accepted for 161 yards. Maybe it wasn’t halftime that made the second game start 20 minutes late …. LC’s second straight win over Ferris was the first back-to-back wins in this South Hill rivalry since the Saxons won in 1987 and ‘88. LC’s last back-to-back wins were in 1983-84 …. Ferris had the ball on its 5 and was forced to punt, but after a high snap, Craig Henneberry’s kick was partially blocked. LC’s Erik Johansson grabbed the ball out of the air at the 11 and as he neared the goal line, fumbled. The Saxons recovered in the end zone for a touchback and got to start their offense on the 20…. Ferris lost sophomore receiver Jonathan Parker to a torn-up knee. Parker was hurt after a reception but he wasn’t hit on the play.

Next opponents

LC (4-2, 4-2) plays Shadle Park (2-3, 2-4) in Friday’s 8:30 game at Albi; Ferris (2-4, 2-5) plays sixth-ranked Central Valley (6-0, 6-0) in Thursday’s 5 p.m. game.

Mead 24, G-Prep 7

Key plays

Trailing 14-0 late in the second quarter, Prep’s Chris Barton scored on a thirdand-1 from the Mead 1 but the play was nullified by a motion penalty. After a 2-yard run, Prep’s threat ended when Jeff Dunlap intercepted Kevin O’Connell’s fourth-down pass in the end zone.

Stars of the game

With a cast on his broken left hand, Mead inside linebacker Larry Carnahan returned to action to spearhead the defense. Offensively, Scott McGlocklin carried the load after starting quarterback Jason Lewis reinjured his right ankle.


It was also Prep’s homecoming…. Because of injuries, Prep had three new starters on defense and two other players changing positions…. Lewis, who missed a game two weeks ago with a sprained ankle, went out late in the second quarter when he aggravated the injury and did not return. Lewis was 7 for 7 in the first half, the second straight week he was perfect in the first half…. Prep scored on O’Connell’s 2-yard run with 4:36 to play, running its streak to 40 games without being shut out. Mead blanked Prep 19-0 in 1991. The scoring drive was aided by a pass interference on fourth-and-4 from the 24 and a forward fumble by Joe Ascolese on fourth-and-4 from the 6 that went out at the 2.

Next opponents

Mead (6-1, 6-1) has a bye; Prep (3-3, 4-3) faces University (3-2, 3-2) in Friday’s 5:45 game at Albi.
