University Stifles Ferris Wins 21-0

  • Also on KHQ.comMore>>

Ferris traveled to University tied with Mead for second in the GSL and would leave a game behind as University remained atop the 3A standings.

 Ferris had racked up the second most yards in the league this year, as U-High was ranked ninth defensively in yardage. It would not matter on this night, as the Titans' defense was relentless. They made stops when needed, forced turnovers and shutout the Ferris Saxons.

 University added a couple touchdowns from Adrian Bonner and won the game 21-0.


Mead at Rogers

Mead was a heavy favorite against winless Rogers, but the Panthers (7-1) did not look the part of a top-tier GSL team on this night.

 Nearing the end of the first quarter, Dom Sanders hit Nick Kaley for an early 6-0 Pirate lead.  Mead answered with a touchdown of their own to make it 8-6 after the two-point conversion.

 The Panthers would eventually win the game 15-6, setting up the opportunity to clinch second place in the GSL with a victory against Ferris next week.  

 Mead (7-1) though, came into the game averaging over 36 points per game and only managed two touchdowns against the Pirates (0-8). While Rogers was able to slow down Mead's run-heavy attack, the Pirate offense never got anything started as they were held to 134 total yards for the game.


Mt. Spokane at Gonzaga Prep

Gonzaga Prep can start to smell the GSL crown, as they were only two wins away going into tonight. The leading rushing attack was in normal form as they ran for a meager 295 yards.

 The dynamic duo of Griffin Hare and Zach Bonneau combined for 252 rushing yards and three touchdowns and the Bullpups won this one easily.

 Gonzaga Prep (8-0) beat Mt. Spokane (1-7) 32-3.


North Central at Lewis and Clark  

 In a game where the offenses were only separated by 28 yards, it was tight until the end. Lewis and Clark outgained NC 334-306, but the Indians had the 23-16 lead in the fourth quarter.

That is when North Central surrendered two costly turnovers and the Tigers capitalized.

Coleton Fitzgerald ran a touchdown in from four yards out to tie it up and Andrew Black ran for two more to put LC up for good. The Tigers (4-4) came back and beat North Central (1-7) 37-23.
