Issaquah survives Kentwood

If Bothell is going to get past this Issaquah team in next Saturday’s quarterfinal, it will need to find a way to lock up Grant Gellatly, who had the best night of his high-school life tonight against Kentwood. He finished with 313 yards and three touchdowns in a 31-28 win, and he helped run out the clock when Kentwood needed the ball back to take one more shot.

Kentwood made a gutsy comeback after trailing 31-14 in the third quarter. It was a good night for Darrius Coleman, who had 133 rushing yards, but the running back on the other side was just getting way more room. Gellatly said he helt like he got free past the defensive line on about every play, and he broke free for runs of 68, 25 and 47 yards. He’s shifty enough to make safeties pay once he gets to the secondary, as he showed on his 68-yard touchdown.

Bothell, a big 42-3 winner against Curtis, knows all about Gellatly. He scored three times on him in Issaquah’s 24-13 win in week 1. This is a different Bothell team now, and we’ll have much more time this week to discuss this matchup. But the Cougars were dominated on the line the last time they faced Issaquah, and Gellatly made them pay for it.
