Eastmont beat an upset-minded Moses Lake team Friday 66-21. The win boosted the Wildcat’s record in the Big-9 to 4-and-1, tied with Sunnyside behind the 5-0 Wenatchee Panthers. That means Thursday’s Bridge of Sportsmanship game has a lot riding on it.
On Friday, Eastmont recovered from a sluggish start to put up over 600-yards of offense in its big win over the Chiefs. Austin Popoff scored three touchdowns on the ground while quarterback Carson Everhart threw for three others.
Eric Granstrom and Grant Olson had the call on the NCWLIFE Channel…
Wenatchee, without running back Nate Blauman due to back spasms, fell to Walla Walla 28-21. Sunnyside beat Davis 28-6 and West Valley topped Ike 57-12.
That’s sets up a HUGE game for the Bridge of Sportsmanship Thursday at Eastmont. A Wenatchee win would give the Panthers the Big-9 Title and #1 seed to State. An Eastmont win would force a mini-playoff Saturday in Moses Lake between Wenatchee, Eastmont and Sunnyside.
We’ll be LIVE with our pregame show at 6:30 Thursday with Eric and Grant. Kickoff is at 7. Presale tickets are available right now at the athletic offices at either high school.
