Grangeville's football boys came up with critical win Friday night, Oct. 6 at St. Maries. They trailed 7-0 at halftime and 14-0 in the fourth quarter but went on to prevail 30-29 in double overtime.
Late in the fourth quarter, Tescher Harris found Noah Kaschmitter — that duo's second scoring connection of the night — for 40 yards and the tying touchdown.
They connected again for two points after a Kaschmitter run in overtime, and after another Kaschmitter run — his fourth of the evening — a two-point conversion pass from Harris to Booker Bush put Grangeville over the top in double-overtime.
“That was the hardest fought game by two teams I have ever been involved with,” GHS head coach Jeff Adams said. “Harris, (Justin) Fogleman, Kaschmitter, hell, the whole team did things like they were four-year starters in college. They never freaked out and they never gave up. (William) Nichols took on their best defensive lineman and is beat to crap — he was so undersized, but never gave up. I have never been more proud of my kids and my staff.”
Coming — The win put Grangeville (5-2) atop the Central Idaho League with one regular season game left to play: Orofino is coming to town for that one next Friday night.
