Bellevue arrives later than scheduled for game

Anxiety was starting to build at Harry E. Lang Stadium in Lakewood, Pierce County, when less than an hour remained until kickoff and Bellevue hadn’t shown up yet for its game against Capital of Olympia.

But then at 6:15 p.m., with 45 minutes left until kickoff, two chartered buses rolled in.

Assistant Bellevue coach Rick Brown explained that the team planned on showing up at 6 o’clock but added, “Traffic was terrible.”

The Wolverines, who had been in a now-famous bus crash on I-5 Friday morning on the way to the Tacoma Dome, had intended to arrived at 6 o’clock. This time, the team took Highway 167 rather than I-5 to Pierce County.

Brown said the four or five Bellevue players who had been considered game-day decisions for the game will play. Starting defensive tackle Alex Gray is out for the rest of the season with injuries suffered in the bus accident.
