Bonners Ferry 20 Kellogg 14
BONNERS FERRY — The Wildcats had a shot to tie the game at 20 with 15 seconds left in the game, but quarterback Reed Whatcott couldn’t link up receiver Wyatt Storey.
The Badgers opened the game with a long scoring drive and then the Wildcats fumbled the ensuing kick return. The Wildcats had their chances though – including two drives that stalled out in the redzone.
Kellogg (2-5) travels to Grangeville next Friday for an important Central Idaho League matchup.
The Wildcats will have a chance to force a three-way tie in the league if they can pull out a win – a loss would effectively end their hopes of qualifying for the postseason.
Wallace 22 Lakeside 20
SILVERTON — Freshman quarterback Henry Larson connected with junior wide receiver Julian Davis on a 44-yard touchdown in the second quarter as the Miners held off the Knights in a North Star League game at Sather Field.
Larson also had a 1-yard touchdown run and a TD pass to Wyatt Ritchey for Wallace (3-3, 2-3 NSL).
The Miners are still in the mix for one of the two playoff spots that are earmarked for District I, but they’ll need to win on the road at Clark Fork this Friday.
MULLAN/ST. REGIS FOOTBALL
Shelby (Mont.) 59 Mullan/St. Regis 42
ST. REGIS, Mont. — Senior Kofi Appiah had three touchdowns in the first half for the Tigers in a loss to the Coyotes at St. Regis High.
“It was a tight back-and-forth slugfest until late,” Mullan/St. Regis coach Stetson Spooner said. “Shelby played well and the sportsmanship was top-notch. Some good things happened for us that I think can make us better moving forward. Oftentimes, we try to find well-coached squads that will push us as hard as possible to help prepare us for those southern teams during the postseason. It was a good football game.”
Senior John Pruitt had two touchdowns for Mullan/St. Regis (6-1), which hosts Lakeside on Friday for a chance to clinch the North Star League championship at John Drager Field in Mullan.
Shelby is 4-3.
