2106


(Wenatchee, WA)…If you missed the LIVE broadcast by the NCWLIFE Channel of the Bridge of Sportsmanship game between Eastmont and Wenatchee Friday, you can get the highlights here.  Wenatchee won a hard-fought contest 17-14 to bring the Bridge of Sportsmanship trophy home after Eastmont won it in 2015.  The Panthers led 3-0 at halftime but Eastmont’s Tristan Martinez gave the Wildcats its first lead in the 3rd quarter on a 27-yard touchdown run to make it 7-3.  Wenatchee came right back and scored on a 17-yard pass play from Austin Blakney to David Snyder to reclaim the lead 10-7.  Eastmont wrestled the lead back on a 4-yard, 4th quarter touchdown run by Nathan Schwinkendorf to make it 14-10 Wildcats.  But as time wound down, Wenatchee mounted another drive, capped by a 19-yard touchdown pass from Blakney to Paddy Allen.  That made it 17-14 Panthers.  Eastmont would have one more shot, moving the ball to the Wenatchee 36-yard line before penalties, a nemesis for the Wildcats throughout the contest, moved them back, finally facing a 4th and long and failing to convert.
