Game Recap – Prairie 19 Columbia River 9
Written by Bryan Levesque on October 8, 2011
The Prairie Falcons entered Friday’s game at Columbia River without their starting quarterback and with just about everyone who thought they knew something about football counting them out. The Falcons however proved us all wrong as they morphed from a single back spread offense into an I-Back running offense and ran for 165 yards and while holding the 3A GSHL leading rusher, Remick Kawawaki to just 50 yards rushing and zero touchdowns. Prairie WR/RB Jesse Zalk rushed for 92 yards on 12 carries and also added 102 receiving yards and a touchdown on just 2 catches. Prairie fell behind 9-7 in the second quarter but outscored the host Chieftains 12-0 the rest of the way for the schools first ever victory over Columbia River at Chieftain Stadium.
Prairie improves their record to 3-3 and 2-2 in league play on the season with the win. The Falcons will host Hudson’s Bay (0-6 0-3) Friday at District Stadium, 7:00 p.m. Columbia River falls to 4-2 and 2-2 in league play on the season with the loss. The Chieftains travel to Fort Vancouver (0-6 0-3) Friday at Kiggins Bowl, 7:00 p.m.
