POCATELLO – In a matchup of two of the best teams in Idaho, there was plenty revealed in Highland’s 24-21 comeback win over Coeur d’Alene Saturday night. Vikings’ quarterback Gunnar Amos was 17 for 32 with 274 yards and three touchdowns. Highland quarterback Tommy Jewell was 20 for 35 for 182 yards, a touchdown and an interception.
Post Falls coach Jeff Hinz was worried that Friday’s football game was slipping through his team’s hands late in the fourth quarter. Instead it slipped through East Valley’s.
MOSCOW, Idaho – His team had just escaped with a win over its border rival after nearly blowing a 22-point lead, and Pullman football coach Dan Lucier was asked if the game gave him “a little bit” of a heart attack. “No,” Lucier said. “Way more than a little bit of a heart attack. “
Seth McLeod’s 2-yard touchdown run broke a tie and East Valley fumbled inside the Post Falls 10-yard line with just over 1 minute remaining as the visiting Trojans held on for a 21-15 nonleague victory. “I’m proud of the guys that we could have let it slip through our fingers and we didn’t,” Post Falls coach Jeff Hinz said. “We found a way. The defense did a great job of bending but not breaking.”
KHQ/SWX photojournalist Jordan Caskey has put together an incredible compilation of week 2 highlights from Inland Northwest high school football games that we like to call "The Ultimate NWPrepsNow Highlight."
Coeur d'Alene senior quarterback Gunnar Amos is like most sons of coaches. He’s known nothing but football since his earliest memories.
Lake City’s offense came up with big play after big play. The Timberwolves’ defense found a way to get off the field against Hillcrest’s potent rushing attack. LC handled the visitors from southeast Idaho 40-20 in non-league football Friday. Perhaps the most encouraging thing for the Timberwolves (2-1) was the fact that both units left room for improvement while still dominating the game.
Mistakes plagued the Coeur d’Alene Vikings from start to finish Friday. And the visiting Skyline Spartans of Sammamish capitalized on all of the Vikings’ miscues, the final one being an 84-yard interception return by Drew Lunde with 2:21 left as the two-time defending Washington 4A state football champs downed Coeur d’Alene 38-23.
Skyline defeats Coeur d'Alene at Coeur d'Alene High School in Coeur d'Alene, Idaho, Friday, Sept. 13, 2013.
Thanks to a dominant 42-14 win over Central Valley, Ferris is an easy No. 1 in the Week 2 NWPrepsNow power rankings.
It was pretty much a re-run of last year’s game with the same ending. Lewiston’s Andres Nunez scored two touchdowns, including a 96-yard return on the opening kickoff, to lift the visiting Bengals past the Lakeland Hawks 14-5 in the season football opener for both teams Friday.
East Valley receiver Gage Burland and the multifaceted JT Phelan proved worth the preseason hype. “They make plays,” Knights football coach Adam Fisher said, adding their multiple threat poses problems for opposing defensive coaches. “Both guys are so smooth, have great body control and understand the big picture.”
KENNEWICK – The 2013 season got off to a great start for the Lake City football team as it rolled past Kennewick 42-10 in a nonleague game on Friday night. The host Lions turned the ball over four times, were outscored 36-0 in the second half and lost quarterback Dylan Tennancour to injury.
Post Falls is a better football team than it was last week, but the Trojans are still searching for their first victory. The Trojans watched a 14-point second-quarter lead evaporate in a hurry and visiting Graham-Kapowsin went on to claim a 31-21 victory Thursday, the second straight year the Eagles have won by 10 points at Post Falls.
When I started predicting high school football games at the newspaper 20 years ago, the format we used was yours truly taking on a guest picker each week. In a way we’ve come full circle. Beginning this week and through the playoffs it will be the Scribe against the Talking Head. That bald-headed mug attached to this feature belongs to KHQ/SWX sports director Sam Adams.
NWPrepsNow will have a tuneup tonight and be out in force on Friday night. Sports writer Greg Lee and photographer Colin Mulvany will be at Joe Albi Stadium to cover the Greater Spokane League football season opener between University and Mead. Across the border, Jim Meehan will staff the Graham-Kapowsin game at Post Falls. SWX cameras will be at both venues to bring you video highlights.
WEST LINN, Ore – Coeur d’Alene nearly dropped its transmission all over the field Friday night before finding the right gear in a 28-point third quarter and cruising to a 49-35 victory over West Linn in the season opener for both teams. The Vikings spent most of the first half behind by two touchdowns – and were lucky to be only that far back. They missed assignments, blew coverages, turned the ball over three times – and, significantly, lost control of the line of scrimmage.
MERIDIAN, Idaho – Forty-one points will win a lot of high school football games, but they weren’t enough for Lake City on Friday night. The Timberwolves did plenty of scoring but had no answer for Rocky Mountain’s zone-read offense, falling 63-41 in the season opener for both teams at Brighton Stadium.
The Capital Eagles punished Post Falls through the air and on the ground as the Boise school throttled the Trojans 35-0 in a season football opener for both teams Friday. What made watching it transpire more difficult for the Trojans is they had opportunities in the first half to stay close to the visiting Eagles.
