Total domination

October 16, 2014

Colville rolls
over top-ranked Freeman

Sometimes final scores can be deceiving. So it went last Friday night in front of a packed house at Colville High School, where the ninth-ranked Indians dominated from the outset in a convincing 28-7 rout of top-ranked and defending State 1A champion Freeman.
The game wasn’t that close.
Colville (6-0) simply dominated the Scotties, who came in riding a 19-game winning streak. The only hiccup for the Indians was a 35-yard Freeman touchdown on the first play from scrimmage of the second half. That cut the CHS lead to 14-7.
