SPOKANE VALLEY Chris Irvin passed for one touchdown and ran for another as the Lake City Timberwolves weathered the rain and beat the East Valley Knights 13-7 in nonleague high school football on Friday night.
Lake City (3-2) moved above the .500 mark for the first time since 2014.
Irvins 2-yard run in the third quarter gave the Timberwolves the lead for good. His 2-yard TD pass to Matthew Whitcomb in the second quarter opened the scoring.
We were pretty sloppy in general, Lake City coach Brian Fulp said. Missed assignments, I think we had six drops. But a great defensive effort; our defense put in a lot of good positions to be successful. They gave us a short field on both touchdowns.
It was one of those ones we had to gut out.
It was homecoming for East Valley (1-3).
Lake City travels to Sandpoint next Friday to wrap up nonleague play.

SILVERTON Junior Alberto Arroyo, normally a tight end, shifted into the backfield and scored two touchdowns as the visiting Knights (3-0) fended off the Miners (0-4) at Sather Field.
Arroyo, normally a defensive lineman as well, moved to linebacker for shorthanded Lakeside.
He ran tough today, and I was also proud of the way he played on defense, Lakeside coach Chris Dohrman said. We had to shift some people around this week; we were missing a couple of kids.
Jayson (JJ) Hall also scored a pair of touchdowns for Lakeside.
The two teams play again next Friday in Plummer.
