Pateros falls to Entiat, competes for post-season slot

Faces Columbia Hunters on Nov. 3

Junior running back, Dan Rossman, gets a first down for the Billygoats on the way to their first score of the game.
“Offensively, we couldn’t get our running game going,” said Stennes, “and they were able to pull away in the second half.”

PATEROS – In an action-filled gridiron game that saw the combined score exceed 100 points, Pateros fell to the visiting Entiat Tigers, 74-34 last Thursday, Oct. 26, in the Billygoats final league game of the season.
“We struggled defensively with their read option,” coach Marcus Stennes said.
Entiat got on the board with its first touchdown three minutes into the opening quarter, doubled that at the halfway point and went up 20-0 on a pass interception/TD with 6:20 left in the first.
“Penalties hurt us on a couple big plays early,” Stennes said.
The Billygoats scored with a two-point conversion tacked onto a TD under the two-minute mark and ended the quarter trailing the Tigers 27-8.
Pateros fought back in the second quarter with two more touchdowns, but the Tigers added two of their own to maintain a 41-20 lead.
“Offensively, we couldn’t get our running game going,” said Stennes, “and they were able to pull away in the second half.”
Entiat outscored the Billygoats three-to-one in the third quarter and by a TD in the fourth to end its regular season 3-2 in league play and first in the Central Washington 1B.
Pateros will compete for fifth place in the CW1B and the final post-season spot when it hosts Columbia High from Hunters at 6 p.m. Friday, Nov. 3.
