Falcon football falls in playoffs
Needing to win one-half of a football game to advance in the 1A tri-district playoffs, South Whidbey fought as much as it could for two quarters.
Unfortunately for the Falcon faithful, the Lynden Christian Lyncs managed to score the only points and won 7-0 before advancing to the winner-to-state game against Meridian.
Lynden Christian returned an interception, thrown by Falcon senior Nick French, for a touchdown in the second quarter and held on to win.
“It was a true defensive battle,” said Falcon co-head coach Mark Hodson. “The teams up there, they spend so much time between plays, I think we had three offensive snaps in the first quarter.”
South Whidbey’s state tournament hopes are gone, but the team had one final game Friday against Cedar Park Christian, a rematch of an earlier 21-20 victory by South Whidbey back in September.
Cedar Park Christian, a private school in Bothell, finished 2-2 in the Nisqually 1A Conference and 5-4 overall.
