SPOKANE, Wash. - The Mead Panthers advanced to the post season with a 34-19 win over the Ferris Saxons Thursday night.

The Panthers jumped out to a 20-0 lead in the first half. Ferris slowly chipped away at the lead and cut the score to 20-19 in the 4th quarter. The Saxons had a chance to tie but a botched snap led to a failed extra point on their third touchdown.

Davian Bartlow scored on the following Panther drive and gave the team a 27-19 lead.

On the next Saxon drive, Christian Olson was picked off my Gunnar Kayser to basically seal the win and the number two seed for Mead.

Bartlow led the Panther offense with 143 yards rushing and four touchdowns.

Both teams lost to Gonzaga Prep earlier in the year for their only loss in the GSL 4A. The Bullpups have clinched at least a tie of the GSL crown.

Mead now advances to the crossover game next week to play either Richland or Chiawana from the Mid-Columbia Conference. Gonzaga Prep will take on the team with the worst record.
