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


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

Lind-Ritzville-Sprague Win Second Straight Hyphen Bowl; Back to Back 2B Titles
By Colin Caruso

In this year’s hyphen bowl, for the second year in a row the Lind-Ritzville-Sprague Broncos faced off against the Morton-White Pass Timberwolves for the 2B Washington state football title. The defending champs Lind-Ritzville were going for two straight, while Morton-White Pass was attempting to break their two game losing streak in the 2B football final in Tacoma.

Lind-Ritzville-Sprague started this contest with a bang. They received the opening kickoff and their first play resulted in a 69 yard touchdown run from senior running back Connor O’Neill. Little did they know, but that would be the only score of the game, just 15 seconds into the contest. Morton-White Pass put together a nice drive to counter but they could not convert on a fourth and 11 in the red zone. LRS led 7-0 after one quarter.

The defenses kept up their sturdy play in the second quarter, with neither team putting together a drive that led to a score. The Broncos held on to their 7-0 lead into the half.

Neither team was able to offensively convert again in the third quarter. Morton-White Pass forced a fumble and recovered in Broncos territory but after a penalty and a 14 yard sack, the Timberwolves had to punt the ball again back to Lind-Ritzville.

After a LRS punt back to Morton-White Pass, the Timberwolves fumbled on their first play from scrimmage and gave the Broncos good field position, on the Timberwolves 34 yard line. But again the Timberwolves defense held firm and forced a turnover on downs.

Morton-White Pass’ last ditch effort came on a fourth and ten in Bronco territory, but Rylon Kolb’s pass was intercepted, which sealed the contest for Lind-Ritzville-Sprague. Congratulations to the Broncos for winning their second state title in a row!

Top Performers:
Connor O’Neill – 16 carries for 121 yards and the only touchdown

Morton-White Pass Stamps Third 2B Finals Ticket in a Row
By Colin Caruso

The second of three games in the Tacoma Dome on Saturday, November 30th saw a 2B semifinal clash between the Raymond Gulls and the Morton-White Pass Timberwolves. The Timberwolves came into this contest undefeated, and Raymond came in with one loss early in the season to Charles Wright Academy.

Both these teams are accustomed to scoring lots of points, but the first quarter saw a scoreless draw with two punts from both squads. The scoring had to come at some point, and Gianni Bertucci finally broke free for Morton-White Pass with a 22 yard touchdown run midway through the second quarter. Raymond responded with a drive that took them all the way down to the Timberwolves two yard line, but Rayce Newman’s pass was intercepted by Tommy Seaman with just 5 seconds remaining in the second quarter. Morton-White Pass held their 7-0 lead going into halftime.

Raymond received the second half kick and quickly ended their personal scoring drought, capitalizing on a four yard touchdown run by Darol Ratsavongsy to tie the game at seven. The Timberwolves responded on their next drive. On a fourth down and two yards to go, Morton-White Pass ran an end-around and converted a 46 yard touchdown run from Ben Powell to reclaim the lead.

Morton-White Pass held firm to their touchdown lead through the majority of the fourth quarter, and extended their lead with two more scores late in the frame to take a commanding 27-7 lead. Raymond added a Rayce Newman touchdown pass with 14 seconds left to Marvin So to make the score more respectable, 27-14. Morton-White Pass will play next week in the Tacoma Dome for their third straight shot at a 2B championship.

Top Performers:
Alex Sida – 15 carries for 130 yards

Morton-White Pass
Brian Reynolds – 14 carries for 66 yards, TD

Lions and Tigers, Oh My!
By Colin Caruso

In the 2B playoffs round of sixteen, Sedro-Woolley hosted the Concrete Lions and the Napavine Tigers on a chilly Saturday afternoon. Napavine’s fans came all the way from south of Chehalis, a close to 300 mile round trip to watch their Tigers put on a show, and the athletes did not disappoint.

Concrete jumped out to an early 8-0 lead on a 2 yard rush by senior Josh Rogge and a successful 2-point try. Napavine quickly answered with a 4 yard quarterback draw by Brady Woodrum to cut the lead to 8-7. The Tigers then forced a Lion punt and struck again on a long pass from freshman Wyatt Stanley to classmate Mark Fagerness to take a 14-8 lead. Concrete answered on their next drive with another 2 yard run, this time by Gibson Fichter, and a successful 2-point try by Fichter to take the lead back from the tigers, 16-14.

But the Lions would fail to see the endzone again on the day and Napavine began pouring on the points. Two more Wyatt Stanley touchdown passes and two more rushing touchdowns closed the contest for the Tigers, who pitched a shut out in the second half against a strong Concrete club. Napavine took care of business and will advance to the state quarterfinals with a 44-16 victory.

Top Performer:

Wyatt Stanley – 3 TD passes of 30, 11, and 11 yards
