From the gridiron this Sunday

Good Sunday morning. Very small amount of stuff this morning. We’ll by the way work to get you some info from yesterday’s season opening jamboree action in Monroe for both Mount Si and Cedarcrest High Schools for you. Meanwhile, from the gridiron, we’ve officially closed the book on the 2017 season with these two games.

Texas A&M Commerce 34, Central Washington 31 (2OT): Central Washington’s season ended in heartbreak yesterday at home in Ellensburg in the NCAA Division II playoffs as they held a 28-7 halftime lead on the visiting Lions from near Dallas only to see the Commerce guys rally to tie the game on a touchdown catch on fourth down and goal with three seconds left in regulation, then get a field goal in the second extra session to win it. The Wildcats end the year 11-1 and sophomore Jonathan “JoJo” Hillel did his part to help the efforts, recording a total of 30 yards in a mix of receptions and carries; he caught two passes for 26 yards, and the 2015 Mount Si HS grad from North Bend also ran the ball once for four yards.

Nevada 23, UNLV 16: The Wolfpack’s long season ended with a successful result in their in-state rivalry battle with the visiting Rebels at home in Reno. Senior Jimbo Davis, a 2013 Mount Si HS grad from Snoqualmie, played in his final college football game for Nevada, with no stats of note reported. Nevada finishes its season at 3-9.
