Borderite football will host Nooksack Valley Friday, October 29, for senior night and some of the boys’ final regular season game of their high school career.
Blaine come into their final game of the season on the back of two away losses. Last week, the boys traveled to Meridian where they lost 21-15 to the Trojans after a down-by-6, fourth quarter drive was intercepted at the 2-yard line. Threatening to score and down 21-15, quarterback Avery Dohner threw a pass over the middle intended for Jaxon Kortlever that was tipped and intercepted by the Trojan defense.
The Borderites started the game strong as Dohner completed a 47-yard pass down the left sideline to Ethan Koreski. The quarterback and receiver connected again on the next play for a 14-yard slant pattern touchdown pass. But Meridian responded, scoring twice in the first quarter. Blaine notched one back in the second, but failed to score in the final half of the game. The boys have made a habit of starting strong and pulling up short this season.
Kortlever had a big game offensively, catching 10 passes for 151 yards. Koreski had his best varsity game with five receptions for 83 yards.
Senior night is Friday at 7 p.m. at the Blaine High School stadium. Blaine is 4-3 this season.
