Capital edges out East Valley, 20-19

According to The Olympian, the Capital Cougars defeated East Valley (Spokane) this afternoon 20-19. Riley Wall scored three touchdowns.

I'll post a link to a full writeup when it appears on the site.

Update: Solid defense and a little trickery won the day.
Trailing 13-6 early in the fourth quarter, Capital (9-3) pulled off the reverse pitch pass trick play it used last week. Receiver Greg Hibbard took a toss from Joe Tolman off the reverse and fooled the Knights, throwing to Jourdan Weiks who was all alone.

The play covered 53 yards. It set up workhorse back Riley Wall, who juked his way into the end zone from 15 yards out and scored up the middle on a two-point conversion for a 14-13 lead.

"We threw that against Meadowdale last weekend that sparked a big comeback as well," said coach J.D. Johnson, of last week's 14-10 triumph.
(I also note that The Olympian's title is almost exactly cribbed from mine. Sneaky, editors. But not sneaky enough.)

On to Tacoma!
