Washougal football team gets payback
Panthers avenge loss to Tenino in 2012
Tuesday, September 17, 2013
Four different Panthers found the end zone to help the Washougal High School football team defeat Tenino 28-7 Friday, at Fishback Stadium.
“This is one of those games where we knew we had to fight,” said senior lineman Christian Edmonson. “It feels great to be able to defend our new turf. This is the stuff we prepared for in camp.”
Edmonson dedicated the victory to his father Rick, who is in the hospital with liver failure. He saw the word “DAD” written on his taped wrists every time he got down to block at the line of scrimmage.
“I get to go back to the hospital and tell my dad we won,” Edmonson said. “We just put our heart out on the field. I think it helped the whole team to have something to fight for.”
