Bear River Battle, IHS at NHS football, Naselle, Wa.

Last Friday was the start of local football, and what better way than the rivalry game between our two local teams.

Naselle's QB Dustin Eaton had a huge game on both sides of the ball, running for two TDs, throwing for two more, and getting a key interception on D that he ran back 50 yards. His brother Robert ran for two TDs as well as the Comets clobbered the Fishermen 42-8.

This play could have potentially changed the flow of the game. After the Comets marched down and scored on their opening possession, IHS QB Josh Berteaux hit Kasey Plato on a quick pass that looked like he was bound for the end zone.

Unfortunately, halfway there he fumbled the ball, and it was recovered by NHS. Ilwaco is definitely playing a quicker style of offense, which is fun to watch, but on Friday they just came up against a bigger, more physical team that was punishing on both sides of the ball all night.
