Glacier Peak won’t look past MLT

They beat their biggest perceived threat – handily.

But don’t think that the Glacier Peak football team will be looking any further ahead than Friday night, even as the Grizzlies bask in the glory of their 42-21 win over defending WesCo 3A champ Meadowdale.

Coach Rory Rosenbach won’t let them.

“We owe them one from last year,” said Rosenbach, referring to Mountlake Terrace, Glacier Peak’s opponent on Friday. “Last year, we had three touchdowns taken off the board because of penalties, and two chances at the end that we couldn’t get done.”

The loss has stuck with the Grizzlies, who will enter Friday potentially without two of its top running backs.

Alex Stepanhenko remains sidelined with a fractured foot suffered in Week 3 against Shorecrest. His return to the lineup won’t come for at least another week, maybe two, Rosenbach said.

Going into Thursday’s practice, Max Moiseyev was about 50-50 to play with a strained left lcl in his knee.

“Our running game is going to look a little different,” Rosenbach said. “Not that that is what we’re known for.”

No, Glacier Peak is known for its up-tempo, get it and go passing game. Mountlake Terrace looks to slow that with its physical style of defense.

“You look at them on film, and they’ve got a bunch of kids wearing neck rolls,” Rosenbach said. “That tells you a lot. They are going to punch us in the mouth.”
