Navigators' football game cancelled

The Northwest Christian Navigators will have to wait another week for a shot at their first victory.

Northwest Christian's game against Quilcene on Saturday has been cancelled because the Wolves don't have enough players to play.

That means the Navigators (0-1) must wait until Sept. 15 to play their next game against Seattle Lutheran at West Seattle Stadium. That game will kick off at 1:15 p.m.

"The players get a day off. They don't want it, though," Northwest Christian coach Pete Fulton said.

Northwest Christian is in only its second season of playing football. The Navigators were winless last season and lost their opener this year, 41-0 to Pe Ell.

"It's kind of good to give us an extra few days to digest the Pe Ell game," Fulton said. "It gives us more time to look at videos. All the coaches get to go scouting Friday."
