Mt. Spokane 35, Lewis & Clark 28

Mt. Spokane held off a late rally by Lewis and Clark Thursday night to beat the Tigers 35-28 at Joe Albi Stadium.

Wildcat Running back Colten Williams ran for 235 yards and two touchdowns, while quarterback Travis Ward went 11-of-13 for 89 yards passing.  As a team, Mt. Spokane ran for more than 300 yards.

Lewis and Clark, rallied at the end of the 4th quarter to come within a touchdown of the Wildcats, but an onsides kick failed in the closing seconds and Mt. Spokane ran out the clock to win the game.

Lewis and Clark's Levi Taylor ran 22 times for 139 yards, almost 100 of that yardage came in the first quarter before the Wildcats found a way to shut down the Tigers' offensive attack. 

Mt. Spokane's next game is Oct. 16 against East Valley. Lewis and Clark plays University next Friday night at Joe Albi Stadium.

Gonzaga Prep 42, North Central 0

Gonzaga Prep's Bishop Sankey's run at the GSL single season rushing record hit a road block last week when he was suspended for his team's game against Rogers.  He was required to sit out a week after being ejected from Prep's game against Lake City the week before.  Thursday night he picked up right where he left off.

Sankey ran wild against North Central, racking up 323 yards on the ground for the Bullpups.  The junior running back ran 99 yards for a touchdown on Prep's first play from scrimmage.

The Bullpups demolished North Central 42-0 at Joe Albi Stadium.  They return home to play Mead next week - a game heard live on SWXRightNow.com with Steve Myklebust and Jared Frank.

Playoff picture coming into focus

Representatives from the Greater Spokane League and the Columbia Basin Big 9 met this week to iron out the GSL-Big 9 playoff times and places.  District playoffs take place Nov. 6, with no games taking place on Saturday this year.  Here's how it'll happen:

4A Playoffs
Big 9# 4 at GSL #1
Big 9 #3 at GSL #2
GSL #3 at Big 9 #2
Big 9 #5 at Big 9 #1

3A Playoffs
Big 9 #4 at GSL #1
GSL #2 at Big 9 #1

With a 5-1 record, Mt. Spokane all but guaranteed the GSL #1 spot in the 3A ranks.  Either East Valley or Rogers will likely take the second spot.

In the 4A ranks, it's a three-way race between undefeated Central Valley, Ferris and Gonzaga Prep.  Central Valley has arguably the toughest schedule ahead of them, with games against Ferris, Prep and Mead still on the schedule.  Ferris, meanwhile, has perhaps the most advantageous schedule, with games against Central Valley, Lewis and Clark and University still to play.  Gonzaga Prep still has to Mead, Central Valley and Lewis and Clark. 

Criteria to determine how winners of the Big 9-GSL games will be placed onto the state playoff bracket are still being developed, according to GSL secretary Randy Ryan.
