EAST WENATCHEE — The Eastmont football team’s home opener Friday night could hardly have started any better. The host Wildcats forced visiting Mt. Spokane (also nicknamed the Wildcats) to punt on its opening drive, but the snap on the attempted kick sailed over the punter’s head, and he was brought down just outside the red zone.
