SPOKANE -- Fans in Coeur d'Alene made sure the final Tom's Tailgate of the season ended up in their city for the fierce rivalry game between Lake City and Coeur d'Alene High School on Friday night at 7 p.m.
The Kettle Falls/Colfax game led the voting for most of the week until a furious push by fans of the Coeur d'Alene schools pushed Tom to North Idaho. The Coeur d'Alene schools got 12,730 votes to the Kettle Falls/Colfax matchup's 9,280 votes.
This final Tom's Tailgate vote of the season was also the second most popular with more than 22,000 votes cast. The Davenport/Reardan vs. Genesee/Deary matchup from earlier this month set the all-time Tom's Tailgate voting record with more than 29,000 votes cast.
