Nate Blauman is having a record-pace senior season with 1,239-yards rushing and 17-rushing touchdowns. He’s also caught two touchdown passes and has over 15-hundred all-purpose yards. Not bad for a kid who was going to quit playing all sports his freshman year…
Wenatchee Coach Scott Devereaux said he thought his teammates were joking when he heard Blauman was going to quit. But the more he heard, the more he knew he needed to talk with him…
Blauman said he’s thinking about walking on at W-S-U and wants to continue playing at the next level. His advice to anyone else going through a rough time?
Blauman and his team will kick off at Walla Walla tonight at 7. Even though it doesn’t mean anything to the Panthers for the league title to be determined next week against Eastmont, Coach Scott Devereaux says it matters a lot for Wenatchee’s future…
All eyes will also be on Sunnyside at Davis tonight with the Grizzlies coming off a shutout loss to Wenatchee. Another loss and next week’s game against Eastmont is for all the marbles.
Eastmont faces must-win against Moses Lake for shot at Big-9 title next week against Wenatchee
Speaking of Eastmont, they’re home tonight against Moses Lake in our Friday Night Lights game on NCWLIFE Channel.
Eastmont is blowing away the league in team rushing with nearly 2-thousand 400-yards. Coach Michael Don likes to share the load and hopes they continue with the successful recipe…
Don says he expects Moses Lake to provide a challenge and that he needs to just keep things simple for his guys…
Eric Granstrom and Grant Olson will have all the action from Wildcat Stadium tonight with our pregame at 6:45 here on the NCWLIFE Channel.
Pear Bowl has a lot riding for Cashmere, not just a trophy
Let’s also take a look at what else is going on under the lights tonight in high school football. Cashmere travels to Peshastin to face Cascade in the Pear Bowl.
Since they began handing out the Pear Bowl trophy in 2003, Cashmere has won 15 of the 16 games. However, three of the last four Pear Bowls have been less than a touchdown differential. A Bulldog win tonight would give Cashmere the #2 seed out of the CTL headed to State.

Eastmont and Moses Lake soccer battle for Big-9 Crown Saturday
Eastmont and Moses Lake wrap up the Big-9 regular season tomorrow at Wildcat Stadium with the league title on the line.
The winner would get the #1 seed into the District Tournament UNLESS Moses Lake wins in a scoreless shootout. The tiebreaker point system would give Eastmont the #1 seed, Moses Lake #2 and Wenatchee #3 with all three teams sharing the league title. If Moses Lake shuts Eastmont out in regulation, Moses Lake would be the #1 seed, Wenatchee #2 and Eastmont #3 with the Chiefs being the league champs.
We will have the game LIVE on the NCWLIFE Channel tomorrow with Eric Granstrom and Matt Wisen beginning with the pregame at 12:45. Kickoff is at 1 o’clock.
