LEWISTON, ID - The Vandals weren't the only ones to see some game-type action this past Saturday.

The Washington State Football team also held their first Scrimmage of fall ball a few hours later, this one at Sacajawea Junior High in Lewiston. The 60-play scrimmage offensively produced three touchdowns and two field goals while the defense recorded three sacks and picked off two passes. Quarterback Connor Halliday went 11-of-16 for 95 yards including a seven-yard touchdown pass to wideout Rickey Galvin. Kristoff Williams led all pass catchers with 36 receiving yards while running back Marcus Mason led all players with four receptions. Coach Leach was happy with his team's progress.

"Thought it went pretty good, thought we had great energy out there," said Head Coach Mike Leach. "I thought guys flew around, you know I thought we still need to sharpen technique assignment stuff a little bit, we didn't really bust anything but just getting into position, reacting to stuff quickly and just sorta transitioning into stuff but I thought it was a good scrimmage."

The Cougs were back on the practice field again today (Monday) at 2:30 and will be in Lewiston through Wednesday before heading back to Pullman to resume practices in Martin Stadium.
