Final thoughts on Friday night football

All year long, there was talk that this was the year to knock Bellevue off its perch. With a lineup littered with sophomore and juniors, it seemed like the Wolverines were vulnerable.

Well, after knocking off a very good, not to mention resilient, Liberty football team, 35-0, Bellevue has provided definitive proof that it belongs in the top spot in the rankings and will advance to play Lakes at 7 p.m. on Friday in the semifinals at the Tacoma Dome.

The Wolverines were dominant on defense, forcing more interceptions (four) than they allowed competions (three).

Liberty’s standout running back Chandler Jenkins rushed for 91 yards on 25 carries, the one bright spot in an offense that finished the night with 141 yards of total offense.

Prior to Friday night, the last three times Liberty and Bellevue met — all in less than a year — the games were decided by a total of 12 points.

But the Wolverines’ running game got untracked early, building a big lead. The Patriots, who have rallied so many times over the past two seasons, just couldn’t get the big play, the momentum-changing moment they’ve gotten so many times in the past.

Lakes running back Levonte Littlejohn’s 5-yard touchdown run in overtime sent the Lancers into the semifinals.

Trailing by a field goal and faced with fourth down from the 5, Lakes decided to go for the touchdown instead of a field goal.
