EAST WENATCHEE — The Eastmont football team looked like it had turned the proverbial corner Friday in the early part of its game against Moses Lake at Wildcat Stadium, but the Chiefs chipped away at the lead the Wildcats built, and eventually time ran out with Moses Lake on top.

Sophomore quarterback Nick McGill and senior running back Brian Burt shone bright in the first quarter as the duo produced three touchdowns and a 20-7 lead. But the teams traded big play after big play in the second quarter, and the game went into halftime tied at 28-28. Moses Lake controlled the second half and eventually sealed a 49-42 victory after being granted a dual-recovery on an onside kick.
