The Blaine High School football team came up just short Thursday night falling to Lord Tweedsmuir of B.C. 35-34. A potential game-tying extra point for Blaine was blocked in the closing seconds. The Borderites had a touchdown, onside kick and another touchdown in the final three minutes. Blaine quarterback Nate Kramme threw five touchdown passes, all to sophomore wide receiver Josiah Westbrook.
