BOTHELL, Wash. — Two Washington high schools played nine overtimes in the state playoffs Saturday, tying a national record set in 1977.

Luke Jones’ 10-yard touchdown run lifted Bothell to a 43-40 victory over Pasco. The teams were tied at 14 after regulation.

“I’m 41 years old and I’ve played football since I was eight, and I’ve never seen a game like this,” Bothell coach Tom Bainter told The Seattle Times. “I feel heartbroken for [Pasco] and so excited for our kids.”

The last nine-OT prep game was played Sept. 23, 1977 — nearly 30 years ago. Detroit Southeastern beat Detroit Northeastern 42-36.

Bothell is where I went to grade school. . .many, many moons ago. Pasco is the high school that serves the community in which I work. (It is NOT the high school whose team I root for). Pasco High has over 2500 kids, and is long known for dominating the state sports scene. I must say that I take some small delight in their losing.
