Exhausted by a long week of disaster recovery after vicious tornadoes tore through their town last Sunday, Washington players represented their community well against an undefeated Sacred Heart-Griffin team. However, their season ended on Saturday and their focus will return to rebuilding their hometown.
Sacred Heart-Griffin won, 44-14, but showed mercy on the beleaguered Washington squad. With a 30-point lead in the fourth quarter, Griffin's coach instructed his team to take a knee on four consecutive plays from inside the 10-yard line. Sacred Heart-Griffin will advance to play Montini (13-0), four-time defending state champions.
