Time not on the side of Washougal
Tuesday, October 2, 2012
The Washougal High School football team left too much time on the clock Friday, at Fishback Stadium.
The Panthers saw their 17-point advantage evaporate in the fourth quarter on three touchdown runs by Jacob Yordy. Washougal still had the will to take the football down the field and score a touchdown for their hometown, but they couldn't keep Yordy from scoring his fourth touchdown in the final quarter. The Lumberjacks escaped the clutches of the Panthers with a 34-31 victory.
"The kids wanted to win the game for their town and their school. They left their hearts on that field," said head coach Bob Jacobs. "When we retook the lead on that last drive, that was a great character check for our kids. The place was electrified at that point. We just couldn't make that last stop."
