NORTH POWDER — It was centered
across the end zone, written in red and blue, symbolizing the Powder
Valley mindset in this OSAA quarterfinal playoff game.
MISSED CHANCES: Powder Valley junior Justin Allen tries to reel in a potential touchdown pass from quarterback Keegan Conro at the Mohawk goal line in the second quarter. However, the ball was tipped into the air and intercepted, resulting in one of several misssed opportunities in the first half for Powder Valley. Mohawk scored 22 points in the second quarter and took a 40-6 lead into halftime, putting the game well out of reach. - The Observer/PAUL HARDER
There it stood, a word of high self-esteem and respect, clearly
visible on dry grass. But in the end, the lettering was torn and
smeared, partly from Mother Nature, partly from Mohawk players crossing
the goal line nine times.
