“In my eyes, it was a win for us. They were a good team, they’re a 4A school out of Baker City, Oregon, so a 2A school up here. We come out, look good, give up a couple turnovers here and there,” PWV coach Josh Fluke said. “We fought till the end. We could have laid down in the third and fourth quarter.

Mahnori Rushton booted a 25-yard field goal for the Bulldogs and Smith ran in a score from 1-yard out.
“They look good, they have a little bit of size and they’re fast. They have a good QB (Smith). I watched some film on them and was like, ‘Holy moly,’” Fluke said. “I was surprised, they looked good. We lost but it was good for us going into the rest of the league games. I think it helped us, we have a bunch of starters hurt once again this year.”
PWV (3-3, 2-0) travels to Ocean Shores next Friday to take on North Beach in a SWW 2B Coastal Division game.
