OROFINO OROFINO — Grangeville’s homecoming game this Friday night, Oct. 10, against St. Maries looms twice as large after Orofino’s narrow win last Friday night, Oct. 3.
The Maniacs cleaned up their early turnover trouble and dominated the second half of a Central Idaho League showdown, which they won 34-31.
Even so, had one pivotal call gone Grangeville’s way, the Bulldogs would have more than answered everything Orofino did.
GHS took a stunning 19-6 lead during the first quarter as the Maniacs committed turnovers on two of their first three possessions.
Wyatt Dewey, Michael Wilson and Austin Parks all scored for Grangeville during the opening period — a start to which Grangeville added passing touchdowns from Layton Harris to Drew Lindsley and, again, to Wilson.
Wilson’s apparent third score of the game was called back for offensive pass interference one play after Orofino pulled ahead, 34-31, on a fumble return touchdown.

Coming — Grangeville (4-2, 0-1 CIL) will kick off against St. Maries at 7 p.m. this Friday.
