PHOTO GALLERY: Timberline Comeback Falls Short
Timberline scored two touchdowns in the final four minutes of the fourth quarter and appeared to have recovered an onside kick with 29 seconds remaining but were called for an interference penalty when the Blazers defender hit the Mavericks receiver and didn’t allow him to make a the catch. Meadowdale was awarded the ball, took a knee and ended the Blazers 2013 season, 28-21.
Junior quarterback Gabe Gutierrez threw for over 300 yards and three touchdowns including the two in the fourth quarter to Trent Gallagher and Jonathan Dowell but also fumbled in the endzone when Meadowdale’s Charlie White delivered the hit and rolled over and recovered the ball to give the Mavericks a 28-7 lead.
The loss snapped a five game Timberline winning streak and dropped the 3A Narrows League #1 seed to 6-4 overall. With the Blazers eliminated, Lincoln’s loss to Eastside Catholic and Wilson’s injury weakened defeat at Glacier Peak, the 3A Narrows League did not advance any teams to the state playoffs.
