By Steve Dion

Thursday night featured a clash of Eagles as Arlington ventured down to Art Crate Field to take on Graham-Kapowsin. This game could not start fast enough for both team coming off losses: a dramatic shootout with Sumner for GK and a lopsided affair against Ferndale for Arlington.

Kapowsin wasted no time exerting their dominance. The opening drive resulted in a 23 yard touchdown run by Zack Navarrette-Smith. The floodgates were just beginning to open.

Before the first quarter concluded, Aaron Olmos recorded a pair of scores and Jeremiah Kekoa returned an interception 61 yards to the house.

The running clock was implemented before the first half concluded.

Arlington showed tremendous toughness despite the lopsided score and were able to keep GK from scoring in the second half.

A few solid carries from Tallen Williams out of the backfield helped move the chains within striking distance. Arlington finished the drive with a 7-yard strike from Anthony Whitis to Griffin Gardoski.

The second half concluded rapidly and the home team walked away with a convincing win.

The Final Score:
Graham-Kapowsin 47, Arlington 6.

Woodinville Claims Defensive Battle Against Rival Bothell
By Steve Dion


One of the great 4A rivalries in Washington features a pair of KingCo foes Woodinville and Bothell which made its annual renewal Friday night at Pop Keeney. This has been a one sided battle in recent years in favor of #5 Bothell (3-0), but Woodinville (3-0) has a strong 2016 squad and was hungry to take back the torch.

The visiting Falcons set the tone in this game by playing sound defense and moving the chains on offense to strike when opportunity arose. They were first on the board with a field goal by Micah Roth. James Johnston returned the favor for Bothell to tie the game at three apiece early in the second. The Falcons responded with a drive culminating in a 4-yard goal line dive by Mack Minnehan to regain the lead. The Cougs used the remaining moments in the first half to march down the field and punch it in the endzone; an 18-yard strike from Jacob Sirmon to Anthony Indelicato.

The third quarter was marred by drives cut short by turnovers and penalties which kept the score deadlocked at 10 heading into the final frame.

Woodinville strung together a series of runs by Minnehan that put them in the redzone. Jaden Sheffey took a shot at the endzone for a touchdown, but the pass was broken up. The resilient Sheffey tried again and found Jared Eisenbarth for the go-ahead score. Could the defense hang on?

Bothell’s attempt to even the score was denied for the final time by the Falcon’s defense who could taste victory after the Eisenbarth score. Woodinville pushes their record to 4-0 and first place in the league standings.

The Final Score:
Woodinville 17, Bothell 10.

Sumner Survives SPSL Shootout with Graham-Kapowsin
By Steve Dion


It is rare that a league title can be won in September, but Thursday night’s SPSL showdown between #1 Sumner and #4 Graham-Kapowsin has the potential to determine just that. These two teams have separated themselves as the class of the conference which opens up the possibility that the winner could run the table to a conference championship.

GK opened strong with a scoring drive that culminated with a goal line plunge by Brandon Becker. The opening play from scrimmage by the Spartans on the ensuing drive went awry as a flea flicker by Connor Wedington resulted in the star running back absorbing a big tackle. The hit sent him to the sideline for a bit to catch his breath.

Shortly thereafter, Micah Smith gave the Eagles a 13-0 lead with a 70 yard scamper up the gut aided by the tremendous blocking of Foster Sarell and Matt Shook.

Sumner struck back in a big way when Tyson Rainwater recorded a pick-six from 43 yards out to prevent the Spartans from falling three scores behind. Before the first half concluded, Luke Ross took advantage of broken coverage and found a wide open Tre Weed to give the home team a one point lead heading in the break.

As the second half wore on, this battle was still up for grabs. A Sumner drive early in the fourth pushed the Eagles defense to bend, but not break. They held the Spartans to a field goal and a four point lead. GK proceeded to move the ball methodically down the field on a heavy dose of Micah Smith carries with the clock continuing to tick. Becker capped off the drive with another goal line push to send the Graham-Kapowsin sideline into exhilaration.

Sumner wasn’t done.

On the ensuing kickoff, Wedington took the kick 90 yards to the house in which he bounced off GK tacklers like a pinball. The return handed the lead back over to the #1 ranked team and they didn’t look back. Tre Weed picked off a desperation pass to put the game on ice. The Spartans hang on for a thrilling win between heavyweights.

Welcome to 4A, Sumner!

The Final Score:
Sumner 34, Graham-Kapowsin 27.
