Meridian 63, Hoquiam 21; Monte next in Quarters

Meridian beat Hoquiam tonight 63-21 in a game that wasn’t that close. The Griz had no quit in them but never really got anything going offensively. Defensively they were opportunistic to force 2 pick-sixes, but one came late in the game on a 4th-and-long. Next is Monte in the quarterfinals at Civic Saturday, 1PM.

In the redemptive end of the home-and-home non-leaguer, Meridian plays Hoquiam tomorrow night under the bright lights of downtown Laurel. Last year’s game in Hoqqy was a 14-7 win for the Trojans, charitably described as sloppy for both teams. The Grizz went onto ...

In just a few hours, the Mighty Trohahns board the bus for the first game of the year, a 7:00PM kickoff at Hoquiam. It’s a long haul but at least there’s football at the other end of it.
