Reaction: Bothell 29, Woodinville 7

The Blue Train is back.

No one knew how Bothell’s Friday night game against Woodinville would go, not after the Cougars opened with two losses to great teams and followed with three blowouts against winless teams. But against No. 6 Woodinville, Bothell showed it shouldn’t be counted out this postseason.

Running back Patrick Ottorbech looked downright impossible to tackle, going for 192 yards on 23 carries. And quarterback Mitchell Muller keeps drives going without having to make too many tough throws. But Bothell’s really back because of its defense. It held Woodinville’s run game down and forced the Falcons to throw. Defense has driven Bothell to back-to-back state title games. Now it’s driving them to a KingCo Crown title.

Don’t crown them yet. They have tough games against Inglemoor and Roosevelt left. But for the time being, the Cougars are the favorite to represent that division in the league title game — most likely against next week’s Skyline-Issaquah winner.
