Foothills Middle School student Anthony Garcia Mendoza avoids a diving Leo Salgado from Orchard Middle School to score a touchdown in a flag football jamboree tournament at Triangle Park in Wenatchee on Wednesday.

Two 40-yard fields were mown and lined at Pioneer Park with teams playing seven students.
