Final thoughts on Friday night football (Updated)

The first Friday of the high-school football season was an interesting one for me, because I was at a practice and not a game.

While I watched Bellevue prepare for Oaks Christian, I flipped through Twitter watching Skyline and Liberty trade scores early before the Spartans poured it on. I tracked Bothell’s win over Union, noticed that Garfield-Lake Washington ended in a forfeit and even followed Bethel’s loss to Permian (Texas).

It was an interesting way to watch things unfold, and I can’t wait to see my first game of the season less than 24 hours from now.

However, even though I wasn’t at a game, or in Washington for that matter, I wanted to make sure I posted links and highlights from the first Friday.

— Newport quarterback Isaac Dotson had 224 rushing yards and three touchdowns and threw for another score as the Knights held off Interlake.

Saints running back Jordan Todd had 342 all-purpose yards.

Eastside Catholic 63, Cleveland 20

Chevy Walker scored five touchdowns (three rushing, one receiving and one on a kick return) and had more than 300 all-purpose yards for the Crusaders.

Lake Washington 14, Garfield 0

— Garfield trailed 14-0 with 10 minutes left in the third quarter when the Bulldogs’ coach, ejected by officials after arguing a call, pulled his team off the field and forfeited to the Kangs.

Permian (Odessa, Texas) 59, Bethel 44

Junior running back Jorrion Wilson ran for a school-record 340 yards and five touchdowns as the Panthers (1-1) rolled past the Braves (0-1). Bethel led 2-0 after a safety early in the game, fell behind 24-2 and then rallied to trail only 38-31 before fading against legendary Permian, of “Friday Night Lights” fame.

Here are a few difference makers from Friday night:

Blake Williams, Everett: Carried 35 times for 256 yards, four TDs.

David Wood, Lakes: Completed 10 of 13 passes for 237 yards, six TDs.

Colton Hordyk, Arlington: Carried nine times for 100 yards, scored four touchdowns (three rushing).

D.J. May, Federal Way: Ran for two TDs, returned interception for a score.

Trent Sewell, Bothell: Seven catches for 141 yards, two touchdowns.
