The Mitchell/Spray football team finished their season in disappointing fashion last Friday with a blowout 60-12 loss to the Prairie City Panthers.
“The last two weeks were rough,” said co-head coach Tim Foster. “We were missing our two biggest bodies and not having them left holes too big for us to overcome.”
Prairie City exploded for 28 first-quarter points as Mitchell/Spray were unable to keep pace.
The Eagle/Loggers struggled to move the ball consistently throughout the game. However, Brett Domenighini was able to break free for a 55-yard touchdown after catching a screen pass from Dylon Tankersly late in the first quarter.
Prairie City continued their scoring spree in the second quarter, adding 17 unanswered points to take a commanding 45-6 lead at the half. When the Panthers scored another touchdown early in the third quarter, the remainder of the contest was played with a running clock due to the 45-point rule.
Domenighini was unable to play in the second half due to a minor injury, and the Eagle/Loggers were unable to move the ball.
Prairie City led 54-6 at the end of the third quarter, and scored once more early in the fourth quarter.
Mitchell/Spray scored their final touchdown on the last play of the contest as Jeremy Lanoue scampered 40 yards on a sweep as time expired.
“Lanoue came on pretty strong in the last couple games,” Foster said. “Injuries gave him the opportunity to play extended minutes and he started to do some good things. He’s our strongest kid and one of our fastest, so it bodes well for the future that he got some experience and started to figure things out.”
With the loss, Mitchell/Spray fell to 2-6 overall and 0-6 in the High Desert League. Prairie City’s season ended with a 3-5 overall record and a 2-4 mark in league play.
Adrian won the High Desert League championship with a perfect 6-0 league record and an overall record of 7-2. They will host Triad High School of Klamath Falls (6-3) in a first-round playoff game this Saturday.
Jordan Valley finished second in the High Desert League with an 8-1 overall record and a 5-1 league mark. They also reached the playoffs and will be on the road on Friday when they take on Perrydale (6-2).
