Lake City new poll leader

The biggest high school football game in the region resulted in another change at the top of the NWPrepsNow Power Rankings.

Lake City knocked off previously top-ranked Coeur d’Alene 45-42 in a wild overtime game Friday. That vaulted the Timberwolves (7-1) into first in the Power poll with 59 points. Coeur d’Alene (6-2) fell to fourth with 36 points.

“When you take down the king, you earn the throne,” SWX producer Neil Stover said. “The Timberwolves never trailed against the Vikings in one of the best game you’ll see this year anywhere in the region. Jerry Louie-McGee and Connor Newby continue to terrorize opponents, and they may just do so all the way to the state title.”

“One name. Jerry Louie-McGee. Is there anything he can’t do?” SWX web coordinator Josh Ouellette said. “One-hundred-nine yards on offense and four total touchdowns thanks to his three return TDs. Without him Lake City’s place in these rankings is swapped with Coeur d’Alene.”

Two-time Washington 2B state champ Lind-Ritzville/Sprague (7-0) moved to second with 40 points after holding off Reardan 7-6.

“They held on against an undefeated foe – sounds like a true contender,” SWX anchor John Collett said.

Surging Colville (7-0) is third with 38 points.

“No hangover from the Freeman win the previous week,” radio color commentator Paul Sorensen said.

Following CdA in the rankings are Gonzaga Prep (6-1) with 19 points and Freeman (6-1) with seven points.

“In a showdown for first place in the GSL 4A, the Bullpups once again come out on top,” Stover said. “They may not be a perfect team this year, but they seem to be as good as there is in the GSL.”
