By Ray Hamill — With back-to-back road wins over their two closest conference rivals, the Ferndale Wildcats are firmly in the driver’s seat in the Little 4.
They have now won four of their last five games, with an offense that is averaging 36 points a game since week two, including scoring an impressive 104 points in two conference games.
On Friday night, Ferndale defeated Hoopa 59-30, improving to 2-0 in the Little 4 and 4-2 overall.
Numerous players have stepped up this season with big contributions from throughout the lineup, but no one has had a bigger impact than Landon Gomes, who is enjoying a stellar senior campaign.
Gomes set the tone again on Friday, scoring his team’s first two TDs and setting each of them up with some nice moves along the way.

“When we get Gomes going, it really opens up the play book,” Ferndale head coach Clint McClurg said.
