Northeast A League pre-season favorite Freeman held off Colville 14-7 last Friday night in the non-league season-opener for both teams.
Despite struggling on offense and putting up some of the lowest rushing totals in many years, the Indians came close to pulling this one out or getting it into overtime in the gameâ€™s final seconds.
But the late comeback ended inside the final minute of play when Freeman recovered a fumble after a CHS pass completion at the Indiansâ€™ 40-yard-line.
