Fishermen reach playoffs for first time in nine years

ILWACO — The Ilwaco Fishermen fulfilled their preseason goal Thursday night when they defeated South Bend 52-28 in a wet and muddy game to advance to the district crossover playoff next week.

Jack Kaino returned after two weeks to lead the team in rushing with 168 yards and four touchdowns. Alec Bell continued his fantastic season, bowling his way to 126 yards and three touchdowns.

The Fishermen (4-4, 5-5) will play at Toledo, the Central League two seed, next week.
