(Napavine, WA) Scoring on every first half possession, Napavine coasted to a 46-7 win over visiting South Bend in a 2B crossover playoff game Friday night.

The Tigers (9-1) took a 40-0 lead one second before halftime to insure that the clock would run throughout the third and fourth quarters.

Senior running back Ben Boyington, who rushed 11 times for 63 yards and the Indians’ only touchdown, got the honor for South Bend (7-3).  A brilliant reach-back touchdown catch by Napavine’s Jordan Purvis was the ProActive Physical Therapy Play of the Game.  Purvis caught six passes for 128 yards.

Cole VanWyk had a strong night for Napavine, rushing seven times for 71 yards and two touchdowns, both from 14 yards out.
