Know Thy Tiebreaker: Nooksack

Know Thy Tiebreaker: Nooksack
For a second time in five days, the Mighty Trohans have fate in their hands. By virtue of a head to head tie with Nooksack, Meridian will play Nooksack tonight at Sedro Woolley in a Kansas City tiebreaker, with the winner moving on to play Kings. It’s another weird scenario. Both teams will likely spend several ...

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: Nooksack

It’s Homecoming tonight, after all. After the quick Monday turnaround, The Mighty, yet fewer, Trohahns lace up the cleats again for tonight’s Homecoming game against Nooksack. The question is, should we be wearing spikes? Game one against the Pioneers was much more a track meet, so much so that I expected someone to come over the ...

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
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 ...

Know Thy Opponent: Cascade Christian

Know Thy Opponent: Cascade Christian
Good morning, Trojan fans. When we last left Cascade Christian, it was the 2010 semis in the Tacoma Dome. After shutting us out 21-0, they beat Connell for the 2010 1A state title. From 2011 to 2015, CCS is 50-9 with another state title and a second place finish. Good work if you can get it. ...

Know Thy Opponent: Blaine

Been a busy week, so an abbreviated preview. Blaine beat Nooksack last week by way of a 222-yard receiving performance by Anthony Ball, who is reminiscent of Mitchell Tripp. Yeah, we like those type of guys to be in black and gold, not orange. It’s not just him, either. Check out this catch by Jalen Kortlever. ...

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: Anacortes at Meridian Time: 7 p.m. Site: Meridian High School  Seahawks update: The 2015 season ...

Know Thy Opponent: Anacortes

Try saying Anacortezzzz with a Castilian lisp. It’s fun. What the Seahawks will look like this year is a bit of a mystery. Anacortez hired a coach in early August 2015, who then resigned 10 minutes prior to the first practice. They then went back to their coach from 2014. At the end of May 2016, Anacortez ...
