END 3rd Q: We’re still tied at 7, with the two teams getting very little going on offense in the third.
HALFTIME: Remains tied at 7, but LC is beginning to win the battles at the line of scrimmage, which is exactly what the Tigers need to do to contain quicker Bothell. This is very reminiscent of the Ferris game, where Bothell roared down the field on the first drive, then stalled.
4:28 left, 2nd Q: Lewis and Clark ties it with a 7-yard touchdown pass from Taylor Eglet to Alex Gauper.
END 1st Q: It remains 7-0 Bothell. LC has 1st and 10 at its own 46.
7:27 left, 1st Q: Bothell takes a 7-0 lead on a 1-yard Patrick Ottorbech run.
We’re about half an hour away from the Bothell-Lewis & Clark game, and it appears many of the Bothell haves braved the snow up North to get here (it’s been pretty clear today down South). Understandably — with the snow coming down in Spokane and along the passes — the LC crowd is sparse.
One quick note: Bothell’s Trey Burwick, a fullback and middle linebacker, is in uniform. He suffered a fractured fibula four weeks ago against Gig Harbor. We’ll see if he gets in the game or not.
Like yesterday, we won’t have many updates here, with so much writing to do for the Sunday paper. But the game, like yesterday, is on FSN and locally, you can hear it on the radio on 850 AM. And this will help everyone out of town: You can hear an Internet Webcast of the game at KBCSports.com.
