Sedro-Woolley Dominates 2A State Title Game
By Colin Caruso
The Sedro-Woolley Cubs suffered one loss this season on October 24th to the defending state champion Lynden Lions. They met that same Lynden Lions club in the state finals at the Tacoma Dome, and the result was much different.
A second half to remember for the Cubs, who outscored Lynden 28-7 on their way to a 42-13 route over a team that had won four of the last six 2A state titles.
After Lynden scored at the end of the third quarter to close the lead to 28-13, the Cubs sidelined quieted down, knowing that their best season ever was within striking distance. The Lions then forced a turnover on Sedro-Woolley’s next drive, causing more fear in the hearts of the massive Cubs crowd. But Carter Crosby saved the day, literally. He intercepted Sterling Somers, Somers’ third interception thrown, and returned it 21 yards for a Cubs touchdown.
The score propelled the lead to 35-13 early in the fourth, and the entire town of Sedro-Woolley could feel the victory. They would add another score on a Quinn Carpenter run, his second of the game, to amount the blowout win.
The story of the game, however, was the Cubs defense. Allowing just 264 total yards and intercepting Lynden quarterbacks five times, propelled Sedro-Woolley to lifting the state championship trophy.
The FinalScore – Sedro-Woolley 42, Lynden 13.
Quinn Carpenter – 17 carries for 88 yards and 2TD
Carter Crosby – 11 carries for 68 yards and 1TD, Interception TD
Scooter Hastings – 7 catches for 78 yards, TD pass
