Idaho non-league

Lake City High football coach Van Troxel anticipated a shootout. What Troxel didn’t envision, though, was his Timberwolves getting caught up in a shooting gallery. Third-ranked Meridian showed few signs of road fatigue as the Warriors measured Lake City in every phase of the game for a resounding 41-14 win in a non-league game in Coeur d’Alene before an estimated crowd of 1,200. LC (2-1) suffered its worst home loss since a 38-13 setback to Sandpoint on Oct. 26, 2002. Meridian (3-0) was the preseason pick to win the 5A Southern Idaho Conference. Troxel understands why now. “I knew they were as good a football team as I had seen on film in a while and that confirms it,” Troxel said. “They’re every bit as good as anybody we’re going to see.”
