Fort Vancouver notched its first football victory since 2016 in a victory over Northwest Christian of Lacey on Friday night at Kiggins Bowl.
Amen Reed ran for three touchdowns while Juan Carlos Cifuentes chipped in 87 yards on the ground to secure the win.
Fort Vancouver trailed 8-0 and was held without a first down in the first quarter. The team then scored 32 unanswered points and held the Wolverines to just two first downs until late in the fourth quarter.
Quarterback Trevor Narvasa completed three of his 13 attempts but made crucial plays when the team needed him to. Clinging to a 13-8 lead and facing fourth down, Narvasa found Isaac Martinez for the 27 yard touchdown to give the Trappers a commanding halftime advantage.
The Trapper defense forced six takeaways including four fumble recoveries and two interceptions by Eli Reynolds and Brayden Vilendre on back-to-back Wolverine passes.
