I'm guessing the rain was a factor.
Good win for Capital, which moves to 5-3 overall, and needs a victory against Shelton next week to have its best chance at the playoffs. As The Olympian explains:
With the [North Thurston] win, both North Thurston (5-3 overall 3-3 WCC) and Timberline (3-5 overall 2-3 WCC) will need Shelton to beat Capital next Friday.With the way Capital's been moving the ball lately, and with a playoff berth potentially on the line, I'm calling this one for the Cougs.
If that happens, North Thurston and Timberline will be in a three-way tie with Capital for the No. 3 and final WCC playoff spot. It would result in a Kansas tie-breaker to determine the No. 3 seed. If Capital wins, the Cougars receive the No. 3 playoff spot.
