The Wolverines’ saturated home field mired both teams‘ running games and winds gusting greater than 35 miles per hour grounded any air attack, but the Raiders capitalized on a Friday Harbor miscue to score a touchdown late in the first half.
After a scoreless third quarter, Friday Harbor senior Bill Revercomb broke free on a 30-yard-plus touchdown run with eight minutes to go in the final period.
Sophomore Kai Herko booted the winning point-after. Friday Harbor’s defense, which turned back Bellingham on a goal-line stand early in the contest, stopped the Raiders down the stretch.
