Colville football rode another strong first quarter into a 42-0 win over Medical Lake on Friday night.
Things went pretty much to plan for the Indians this week, who were looking to have a strong week of practice and follow it up with crisp performance.
“It was a good game, we got a chance to work on some things that we needed to work on and everybody got a chance to play. So that is a good reward for a week worth of work,” said head coach Randy Cornwell.
Jakob Larson led the Colville offense with four touchdowns, three rushing and one receiving. Larson rushed for 93 yards on seven carries, while John Knight was 11 for 17 passing for 170 yards and two touchdowns. Knight’s favorite target was Braden Flugel, who had five catches for 87 yards and one touchdown, and Grant Michaliszyn scored a rushing touchdown for CHS as well.
The defense pitched a shutout, and allowed the Cardinals only about 100 yards of offense.
“We were able to shut them down offensively, they didn’t do much after that first series,” said coach Cornwell.
Braxton Fitzsimmons and Jake Lindquist pulled down interceptions for the Indians and Strann Seeman, in his first start of the year, led the team with six tackles.
This week Colville (5-1, 4-0) will host the Freeman Scotties (5-1, 4-0) in an important league matchup. The winner will have sole possession of first place and the inside track on the NEA regular season title. It will also be senior night for the Indians. Kickoff is 7 p.m.
