KENMORE, WA – Hungry? Then get ready for the annual “Spaghetti Bowl,” as the Inglemoor Vikings take on the Bothell Cougars on Friday at 10 p.m. (EST) at Inglemoor High School. More than 6,000 fans are expected for a game that’s part of the 2013 Great American Rivalry Series presented by the U.S. Marine Corps and Hibbett Sports.
The game is called the “Spaghetti Bowl” because of the massive spaghetti feast that precedes each year’s game.
The rivalry has been pretty one-sided as of late with Bothell beating Inglemoor 66-21 last season for its 11th straight win in the series. Bothell leads the all-time series 26-22.
The Vikings are off to a horrendous start to the season, having lost all six of their games by at least 17 points. They went 3-8 last season and are coached by DJ Baddeley.
After going 6-5 last season, the Cougars have started 2013 with five wins in six games with their only loss coming to top-ranked Bellevue. Junior back Sam McPherson scored four times in a 42-23 win over Glacier Park in their last game.
