Bellingham, Burlington-Edison football teams to honor Cascade Mall shooting victims

Bellingham High School will hold a moment of silence before its football game against Burlington-Edison on Saturday, Oct. 1, at Civic Stadium, Red Raiders athletic director Chad Larsen said.

The game will mark the first for Burlington-Edison since the Friday, Sept. 23, shooting at the Cascade Mall in Burlington in which five people were killed.

Around the time of the shooting, the Tigers kicked off a football game against Lakewood at Kirby Field, about 1 1/2 miles north of the mall. The game was postponed as police searched for the shooter.

According to the Northwest Conference website, Lakewood and Burlington-Edison will resume the game Nov. 1 if it carries playoff implications.
