Mountaineers’ Road Trip to Beach Ends In Victory


The Rainier football team got itself into the win column far from home Friday, bussing to the coast and beating Ilwaco 38-14.

Jake Meldrum threw for 223 yards and three touchdowns on a 15-for-24 night, and also rushed in a pair of scores as part of an 89-yard performance on the ground.

More than half of his completions went to Hunter Howell, who logged 122 receiving yards on eight catches, finding the end zone twice. John Kenney posted a touchdown and 82 yards on five catches. Jared Sprouffske combined eight rushes for 52 yards with a pair of catches for 18 more in an all-around performance.

Rainier (1-4, 1-2 league) will face Raymond-South Bend on the road next week.
