Who’s up, down after Friday

I have to make this quick because I’m at Safeco Field with the Mariners today, but I’d like to sum up last night by taking a look at who’s rising and falling.

RISING

Federal Way. The Eagles forced seven turnovers against previously undefeated Kentlake on their way to a 48-6 win. Andre Barrington had 97 yards and two touchdowns, and it appears that Federal Way offensive line is playing strong.

Lake Stevens. Even without RB/S/KR/EVERYTHING Bo Dickinson, the Vikings beat previously undefeated Arlington 45-23 behind three touchdowns from QB Nick Baker and a couple more from RB Duke Dolphin.

West Seattle. How long it’s been since West Seattle won Metro is something we’ll have to look up Monday when we get back in the offense. But the Wildcats clearly have an edge in their division after beating Nathan Hale 32-15. And they’re doing all of this without Husky recruit Aaron Grymes, who Craig Smith reporter will have knee surgery Tuesday.

Olympia. The Bears just beat a senior-laden Bellarmine Prep team 31-0, and that’s now three straight games the Bears have gone without allowing a score.


FALLING
Roosevelt. The Roughriders have one of their top teams in the past two decades, but they showed Friday night they’re not up there with the big Eastside teams — Inglemoor, Bothell, and Woodinville — quite yet. Woodinville’s disciplined defense only broke down once against Roosevelt’s spread offense. Otherwise, the ‘Riders could not get much going, and a few turnovers didn’t help.
Edmonds-Woodway. The Warriors lost a close one, 29-25 to Jackson, and are just 2-2 this season. And while the close loss to Meadowdale surely hurt, this one hurts more because it counts in the WesCo 4A South. Now E-W needs two teams to beat the T’Wolves — and it needs to win out — to take the division again.
Kamiakin (Kennewick). As I mentioned in Thursday’s preview box, the Braves needed to find points. And they didn’t Friday night in a loss to 3A Eastmont of East Wenatchee. Southridge now is the clubhouse leader in the Big Nine.
Lewis & Clark (Spokane). The defending 4A champs dropped their second game of the season to East Valley on Thursday night, and they still have a tough schedule ahead of them. The Tigers could be in a struggle to make the playoffs.
Morning stars
1. Cameron Woolsey, Snohomish. Had two interceptions, ran for 108 yards and scored three touchdowns in a 35-28 win against Monroe.
2. Tre Watson, Kennedy. Ran for 202 yards and three touchdowns on just six carries in the Lancers’ 61-0 win against Highline.
3. Cameron Sandquist, Redmond. Caught 14 passes for 245 yards and three touchdowns, but it wasn’t enough for Redmond, which lost 55-37 in a wild one against Eastlake.
