Coeur d’Alene, Lake City top NWPrepsNow power rankings

The NWPrepNow Power Rankings continue to have a similar feel, but the order was shook up after results from last Friday. Colville caused Freeman to fall out of the top spot after the Indians put a 28-7 headlock on the visiting Scotties. That allowed Coeur d’Alene (6-1) to jump back to the No. 1 spot. The Vikings cruised to a 46-10 road victory over Lewiston. The Vikings have 57 points. Right on the Vikings’ heel are crosstown rival Lake City (6-1), which took a big step toward a postseason berth with a 47-15 win over Post Falls. The Timberwolves have 46 points. The top two teams face off Friday at Coeur d’Alene in what now shapes up as the best game in the region this year. CdA and Lake City have proven they’re the best of any teams in the area. “This isn’t the Vikings team that won state last year, but is one that still has a chance to win it all in Idaho,” SWX web coordinator Josh Ouellette said. “Rolls over Post Falls and moves up a notch,” radio color analyst Paul Sorensen said. “What’s in the water that CdA and Lake City are drinking, as the best football teams reside in the Lake City area.” Colville (6-0) moved up three spots to third with 35 points. Rounding out the rankings are 2B power Lind-Ritzville/Sprague (6-0) with 29 points, Gonzaga Prep (5-1) with 17 and Freeman (5-1) with eight. Shadle Park (4-2) fell out of the rankings after Ferris topped the Highlanders 43-34. “Does anyone really know who the best team in the GSL is? We’re all trying to figure it out,” SWX sports anchor John Collett said.
