Washington State Quarterfinal Game Goes...Nine Overtimes!

I know this is a few weeks old, but still pretty crazy.

http://seattletimes.nwsource.com/htm...bothell19.html

BOTHELL At times unbelievable, at times controversial, at times simply absurd, a high-school football playoff game of historic proportions finally ended in nine overtimes with Bothell fullback Luke Jones scoring on a 10-yard run to spark a wild celebration at Pop Keeney Stadium.

The nine overtimes tie a national record set in 1977. The previous Washington record was seven, done twice.

Bothell's 43-40 win Saturday over Pasco, in the quarterfinals of the Class 4A state playoffs, puts the Cougars (11-1) in the semifinals at the Tacoma Dome next week against either Edmonds-Woodway or Woodinville, who played in the late game at Pop Keeney.

"I'm 41 years old and I've played football since I was 8, and I've never seen a game like this," said Bothell coach Tom Bainter, clutching his chest and wiping away tears. "I feel heartbroken for [Pasco] and so excited for our kids."

The emotion teetered back and forth on a combination of inspired defensive stands, great offensive plays, two late fumbles in overtime, a missed field goal and plenty of dropped passes at least 12 for Pasco.

The crowd's roars and gasps grew in magnitude as the day got colder and the game settled into its third hour, then fourth.

The conservatively played game was tied at 14 at the end of regulation. There were 17 punts, and both teams had one big offensive highlight in the second quarter....

Both schools have great programs. Pasco won 4 state titles in 6 years, I believe. I played with guys from both teams on my college team. There's some talent at those schools.

Bothell is playing for the state final tomorrow at the Tacoma Dome.
