Okanogan’s First Half Enough For State Title Victory Over Napavine
By Steven Dion

The 2014 edition of the Gridiron Classic featured the 2B championship game between Napavine and Okanogan. Northeast Washington’s representative in the Bulldogs shut out defending champions Lind-Ritzville Sprague in the semis 34-0 to earn their title game berth. The Tigers won a close contest over Toledo to get to the big dance. Luck is often an undervalued factor in sports, but the victor of this game can surely credit a few unusual bounces of the pigskin and a bend-don’t-break second half en route to a state championship.

Opening drives for both teams did not yield points as the defensive units for both squads showed early aggression. The Bulldogs were facing a third and long, so Benny Cate threw toward Jimmy Townsend on the right hashmarks. However, there were two Tigers in coverage with one in position to intercept. The ball glanced off the defender’s hands to Townsend who grabbed the still airborne football for a fluky 61 yard score. Before the first frame ended, Arnulfo Tacked on a 27 yard field goal to give Okanogan an early double-digit lead. Despite the deficit, Napavine’s roster has talent which would make a comeback a likely scenario.

Before the first half concluded, Okanogan tested their fortunes on another play that could have gone wrong. Cate threw a dart downfield and his receiver was scampering to the endzone, but before he got there, the ball popped loose. Payton Staggs was able to pounce on the football which was laying in the endzone for any taker. At the half, Eastern Washington was leading its Western counterpart 17-0.

If Napavine were to mount a comeback in the second half, Brady Woodrum would have to continue to receive plenty of touches. Five of his 77 total rushing yards amounted to the Tigers getting on the scoreboard with over eighteen minutes of play remaining. This fired up Napavine and the momentum was shifting. Shortly after the touchdown drive, the Tigers had an opportunity to kick a field goal to cut the lead. No good. The NHS defense held and allowed for another field goal attempt. Missed. Time was running out, but Napavine still had a pulse. Wyatt Stanley connected with Mac Fagerness from 27 yard with 3 minutes remaining for a touchdown. Using timeouts wisely, the Tigers had the ball with a minute left to tie or take the lead. Okanogan was able to force a fumble on the quarterback as he about to throw the ball downfield to a receiver. Despite being shut out in the second half, Okanogan is the 2B champion by the score of 17-14.

The FinalScore – Okanogan 17, Napavine 14.

Top Performers:
Jimmy Townsend- 61 yard TD rec, forced fumble, INT

Brady Woodrum- 77 rush yds, TD, 79 pass yds

2B State Finals Preview, Napavine vs. Okanogan
By Steven Dion

The Gridiron Classic kicks off with an intriguing 2B matchup with Okanogan and Napavine. The Bulldogs from the northeast corner of Washington made a statement in the semifinals by pitching a shutout against the 2-time defending champions in Lind-Ritzville-Sprague by the score of 34-0. Okanogan had a fluky loss to Brewster midway through the season, but beat the Bears by four touchdowns the second time the two met up. Napavine dominated Toledo in many key statistical categories last week in the semis, but advanced with a slim six point margin. The Tigers accumulated 346 total yards in the contest and nearly doubled the Indians in plays and first downs.

One thing that Josh Fay may emphasize to his team is not allowing Okanogan to sneak back into the contest late if NHS holds a lead. The combo of Taylor Hicks to Grant McEwen was very effective last Saturday which may lead to more that 11 pass attempts for the Tigers signal-caller in the 2B championship. The last time either of these teams appeared in the championship game was 2008 when Napavine claimed the title. If Okanogan can channel the dominance they demonstrated last weekend, they will be one tough customer. Bringing the hardware home would certainly make the 12 hour round trip for Steve Chamberlain and his Bulldogs well worth it.

Napavine Squeaks Past Toledo
By Colin Caruso

Napavine had yet to be tested prior to this contest. Their margin of victory has been off the charts, and they already placed a 36-6 rout on the visiting Toledo Indians. But that didn’t stop the Indians from fighting until literally the very last play.

With just 3 yards (yes 3 yards) of total offense in the first half, the Toledo Indians fought and clawed their way to a 14-7 deficit at half. Their only score, a 76 yard kickoff return for a TD following a Mac Fagerness TD catch brought them even with the high powered Napavine offense. Napavine was able to sneak in another Fagerness catch with just 7 seconds left in the half, taking the 14-7 lead. The stats were unbelievably misbalanced at this time. Total yards were 225-3 in favor of the Tigers.

The second half saw constant action throughout. The heavy underdog Indians stormed back midway through the third with an amazing 56 yard pass and catch from Dalton Yoder to Grant McEwen. They added another score early in the fourth, taking the lead in a game they where they were heavily outgained in yards. Unfortunately the PAT for Toledo was blocked, but they still held a 20-14 lead early in the fourth.

Napavine answered, as a championship caliber team does, with a march and score. Sam Fagerness this time, Mac’s brother, caught a 29 yard pass from Wyatt Stanley, his third on the day. The PAT was up and good, and the Tigers took a 21-20 lead. After a punt, the Tigers got the ball back, marched again, and scored again on another Stanley pass, his fourth of the day!

This final score put the game out of reach for the Indians, who added a safety on the final play to end the contest 28-22. What a game!

The FinalScore – Napavine 28, Toledo 22.

Top Performers:
Dalton Yoder – 4-11 for 85 yards and 2 TD
Grant McEwen – 3 catches for 74 yards and 2 TD

Wyatt Stanley – 10-21 for 161 yards and 4 TD
Mac Fagerness – 6 catches for 65 yards and 2 TD

Darrington Logs Bridgeport
By Colin Caruso

The Emerald City Kickoff Classic always comprises great matchups throughout the state in high school football. The ‘Jamboree’ week kicked off with the Bridgeport Mustangs and the Darrington Loggers, both schools of less than 200 students. Bridgeport had a down year last year, winning only one game, while Darrington put up a solid 7-4 record in 2013.

Both teams battled equally in the first quarter, with the ball hovering around midfield and the score remaining at 0-0. Darrington began to awaken in the second quarter.

Lane Monteith, a 5’9 215 pound senior for the Loggers took over the contest both offensively and defensively. He scored two touchdowns in the second quarter, and led all players in tackles with 6.5 total, 5 solo.

With such small enrollment, neither team had more than 20 players suited, and Darrington finished the game with just 13 players due to injuries throughout the course of the game. Look for the Loggers to continue to play great football on the back of Monteith and their quarterback Trent Green.

Darrington finished off Bridgeport 35-7. It looks like Bridgeport will continue to rebuild this year, but look for a better result overall than last season.

Top Performers:
Jonathan Oregon, 12 carries for 93 yards

Lane Monteith, 9 carries for 52 yards, 2TDs, 6.5 tackles

Lake Roosevelt Shuts Out Seattle Lutheran
By Colin Caruso

With Seattle Lutheran Saints senior star Abijah Smith sidelined with a concussion from last week, the Lake Roosevelt Raiders capitalized on interior runs to trample the shorthanded Saints. Seattle Lutheran went into their bag of tricks on the first drive of the game and completed a halfback pass all the way to the 3 yard line. Everything went downhill from the Saints from there. Lake Roosevelt pushed them back to the 12 in the next three downs and blocked the Saints attempt at a field goal. The Saints would not see the redzone for the remainder of the day.

Lake Roosevelt dominated the line of scrimmage on both offense and defense. Only attempting one pass in the game, the Raiders marched down the field on multiple drives with handoffs and tosses, amassing 6 touchdowns on the ground. They dominated in the first half, scoring 33 of their 40 points prior to their locker room trip. With grueling defense and a stellar running game, the Raiders shut down Seattle Lutheran by a final score of 40-0.

Top Performers:
Lake Roosevelt
Josiah Desautel – 3 carries 136 yds, 3TD, 1 punt return TD
Josh Harris – 7 carries 57 yards, TD
Jesse Louie – 6 carries 93 yards, TD

Seattle Lutheran
