Deer Park’s Redemption On The Road Against Omak

The U.S. military has stealth jets, and now it looks like Deer Park football has its version. His name is Brock Berger, and he wears #33, so call him the BB33 Stealth, and there was no stopping him. 

The junior wide receiver, who has state wrestling and baseball appearances on his athletic resume, went off catching nine passes for 207 yards, finding the end zone on four occasions last Friday in Omak as the Stags faced a daunting opponent away from home.

Last fall, the Pioneers football team visited Deer Park and rallied in the fourth quarter, scoring with just over a minute to play, the visitors’ only lead of the game, and taking the win as the final result.

Last Friday, it was the Stags’ opportunity for redemption on the Pioneers home field. But leveling the score would take time.

The home side looked to be in control with an 18-7 lead, but the junior tandem of Berger and signal caller Aiden Martin would have no part of that as Deer Park rallied for a 27-25 road win over the two-time defending Caribou Trail League champions.

Martin would finish with 262 yards through the air. Five connections with senior Decader Bird for 37 yards kept the chains moving. Bird, all league last fall on both sides of the ball, collected the win-preserving interception at the Stags’ 10-yard line on the home squad’s final possession. He also had 4.5 tackles, 1.5 for loss. Sam Brown topped the defensive unit with nine tackles. Dillon Mareth had 3.5 tackles, 1.5 for loss, and a sack. The Deer Park defense limited Omak to only 3-12 on third-down conversions.

After snapping their two-game skid, the Stags head to Freeman on Friday to face a Scotties squad that has dropped their last two decisions on the road to Rogers and Lakeside.

Homecoming against Medical Lake is October 6, followed a week later by senior night against Newport.
