Know Thy Opponent: Connell

Know Thy Opponent: Connell
Good morning, Trohahn fans. When last we saw Connell, it was a fantastic finish to a tremendous game to close out an amazing championship season. Connell comes out of the mists of memory into the present as a 10-1 team, losing only to top-ranked Royal. They’re tough, mean, and multiple. The Herald previews the game thusly: ...

The woods are lovely Dark & Deep But I have Promises to Keep And Miles to go before I sleep Road trip first round playoff games are tough. The nerves and anticipation have the kids ready to go now. Instead, they got to load on the bus with all that bubbling adrenaline and stew in it ...

Know Thy Opponent: King’s

Know Thy Opponent: King's
If enjoying a bucolic bus tour of Sedro Woolley wasn’t reward enough for surviving Tuesday’s qualifying tiebreaker, Meridian is now bestowed the honor of playing the class of Northwest Washington 1A football, the King’s Knights. In the truly bizarre Cascade Conference season, King’s might be most notable for being the last league team with gumption to play Archbishop ...

Know Thy Opponent: Mt. Baker

What we all look forward to, no?. Games late in the season that are meaningful. The suspense of not knowing your team’s fate until the final whistle. Hanging on every snap, dying just a little on each opponent achievement only to live again on a first down. Truth be told, that sounds terrible to me. Better ...

Know Thy Opponent: Storm Watch ’16!!¡¡¡!1 & LC

Pummeled by two teams in a row only to be buffeted by two successive storms? The Mighty Trohahns can’t catch a break. Should Lynden remain safe from storm surge this evening, there is actually a contest against a non-metrological foe. Lynden Christian lost narrowly last week against the Sack, the difference in the game being missed PATs. ...

Know Thy Opponent: Nooksack

Know Thy Opponent: Nooksack
First things first on this September-The-Thirtieth. In a pregame interview, Coach Ames was asked what he expected for his birthday. “A box full of purple bruises.” So there’s that. This birthday express hits the road for Nooksack International Airport this evening. The world-famous Abbotsford Air Show, just across the DMZ from Nooksack, blushes at the aerial displays ...

Know Thy Opponent: Lynden Christian

Know Thy Opponent: Lynden Christian
Turn that frown upside down, The Mighty Trohahns now enter a brand new world of league play, tabla rasa at 0-0. In this topsy-turvy world, Lynden Christian’s under-center power run offense had been an immutable touchstone of constancy. That, and the sand under what used to be the Mt. Baker grass. Now even that has ...

Game Day: Anacortes at Meridian

The season opens tonight for the Mighty Trohahns, at least those that can be stirred from their convalescence. Strangely, injuries always seem to be a problem at the start of the season despite not having played a game. The Herald previews the game thusly: From www.bellinghamherald.com: Anacortes at Meridian Time: 7 p.m. Site: Meridian High School  Seahawks update: The ...

Homecoming Game Day vs. LC Comments

Homecoming Game Day vs. LC
First, the Herald has a profile feature this morning on Trohahn senior Daniel Young. It’s tough what to make of Lynden Christian, 4-2 on the season but 1-2 in league. They are certainly coming back to the LC of yore: heavy run paired with tough, aggressive defense. David Bladies continues to shoulder the offensive load, averaging 127 ...
