BREWSTER – The Bears’ home stand against visiting /Wahluke began on a somber note as spectators, classmates, and players held a long moment of silence in memory of senior Cade Gebbers whose death occurred just two days earlier on March 17. 
“I am so proud of our players and coaches who battled through a tough week in Brewster,” said head coach Jake Johanson. “All credit goes to our players who put it all out there and played one of the best defensive games in recent memory.”
Neither team scored in the opening quarter, but the Bears stuck quickly during the first minute of the second quarter with the game’s first touchdown. The two-point conversion attempt was unsuccessful. By the half Brewster was up 18-0.
“Wahluke’s only score was a pick six on a trick play,” said Johanson. “This was a total team effort. Gio Nila, Arnie Arevalo, and Clayton Isensee led the team with seven tackles apiece. Reese Vassar and Adaih Najera each had interceptions on defense. Reese Vassar played his best game as a Bear on both sides of the ball. Logan McGuire made a huge catch and played lights out on defense all night.”
