Grangeville’s Josh Nichols was mobbed by teammates after a late tap-in goal delivered a 2-1 win over Orofino Monday night, Sept. 11. “Josh hustled, and kept hustling,” coach Mike Connolley said after the win. The Bulldogs opened the scoring with a head by Isaac Vandomelan off a throw-in by Alec Rioux. Orofino tied it during the second half by turning a breakdown near midfield into a strong shot with a combination of passes along their left wing.
