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.

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.
