Know Thy Opponent: Mt. Baker

Know Thy Opponent: Mt. Baker
The cynic would say the brevity of this post would be due to fatigue and sloth. And the cynic would be right. But also true is the familiarity of seeing a team again just a few weeks later. Baker is largely known quantity, a hulking mass of menace looming to the East. The Mounties rebounded ...

Know Thy Opponent: Mt. Baker
Another week, and another tilt (I like to write ’tilt’, makes me feel like an old-timey sportswriter) against another top-ten league opponent. Our few yet Mighty Trohahns can’t catch a break. Overmatched but not undaunted, Meridian faces 7th ranked Mt. Baker tonight. Mount Baker completely revamped their offense this year and adopted the Air Raid, after ...

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 ...

Game Day: Meridian vs. Mt. Baker Comments

Good morning, Trohahn fans. As of this morning, there’s game preview up from the Herald. Suffice it to say, Jed Schleimer may well skip the team bus and run all the way to Laurel. It’s not much farther than he ran last week against Nooksack. Game plans are essentially “hold Schleimer to under 400.” Kickoff ...

Know Thy Opponent: Mt. Baker, at home this time Comments

As I was finishing this, news came of a shooting at Marysville-Pilchuck High School. Our Prayers with them. Good morning Trojans fans. It seems that true football weather is finally upon us, and one can only hope the ill winds bear better fortunes for the Mighty Trohahns tonight. Once again, there’s not much mystery tonight.  We all ...

Good morning Trohahn fans.  Another great night for football, but aren’t they all? Meridian hits the highway tonight to play a surging Mt. Baker team.  After dropping the first game to an extremely strong Sedro team, Baker has been on a tear.  In the last three games, the Mounties have scored 120 points whilst giving up ...

1991 Game #5:  Meridian 15, Mt.

Pre-Game Trunk Or Treat Thursday, 6-7:00
Before Thursday’s (Halloween) game against Mt. Baker, from 6pm-7pm (or until candy is gone), The Leadership students are putting on “Truck or Treat” for children who would like to trick or treat before the game (with a parent). This will be at the high school, children are encouraged to dress up. Spread the word….it should be fun!

Game (Thurs)Day at Mt. Baker

Game (Thurs)Day at Mt. Baker
Well, here we are, last game of the regular season.  Kinda sneaks up on you, doesn’t it? No, you scheduled us here. Meridian heads literally over the river and through the woods to the Mountaineers’ house tonight, with at least 66% of our post-season fate in our own hands.  The number of those hands however ...

Mt. Baker Game Rescheduled to Thursday

Mt. Baker Game Rescheduled to Thursday
Because of the tangled briar patched of playoff scenarios possible out of Week 9 games, Meridian will be playing Mt. Baker on Thursday night at 7:00PM instead of Friday.  Depending on who beats whom between Meridian vs Baker, and Nooksack vs Blaine, the NWC may need to hold some kind of mini-playoff on Saturday.  I’m ...
