Final thoughts on Friday night football

Bothell made a statement Friday night.

The Cougars had an excuse to struggle against Newport with injuries piling up two weeks into the season.

However, instead of falling behind or playing sluggish at the start, Bothell marched right down the field for a touchdown. The Cougars rallied behind a loud crowd in their first game at the remodeled Pop Keeney Stadium.

That said, Newport had a prime chance to pick up a big win. The Knights were inside the 5-yard line three times in the first half. If they score touchdowns instead instead of fumbling the ball away they have a lead at the half instead of a 13-0 deficit.

That would have changed the whole complexion of a game that ended in a 42-14 Bothell win.

Bothell then put things away with three third-quarter touchdowns.

Here are some more numbers from the game.

Bothell quarterback Braden Foley was 8 of 9 for 193 yards and three touchdowns. Trent Sewell caught four passes for 133 yards and two touchdowns.

Newport quarterback Isaac Dotson rushed for 163 yards in the loss.
