A Columbia-Inchelium football team that struggled with consistency and continuity early-on this football season seems to be rounding into form as the stretch run toward the 1B (eight-man) football playoffs looms.
The Timberwolves (4-2, 2-1) blasted overmatched Waterville (1-5, 1-2) last Friday afternoon at Inchelium, 62-12, in a battle of Northeast 1B North and NE 1B South teams.
C-I rolled to a 24-6 first quarter lead and increased that working margin to 44-12 at halftime.
The Chewelah Cougars (5-1, 3-0) went into their game at Medical Lake (5-1, 3-1) last Friday knowing the winner would be in no worse than a tie for first place in the Northeast A League after that nightâ€™s game. The Cougars built big first half lead and managed to hold on for a 33-28 win.
Jenkins High and Freeman are tied atop the NEA standings this week. ML is one game back.
â€śIt was a big win for us,â€ť said head coach Jim Fisk, â€śI thought, as a team, we played well, Medical Lake is a good team--the best weâ€™ve played in our league this year.â€ť
