Bellevue’s pretty good, but we already knew that, so let’s take a look at what else happened this weekend in preps football.
(Bellevue, by the way, beat Alta (Utah) 45-0)
– No. 4 Federal Way dropped to 0-2 after losing 49-6 to Camas on the road. Paul Danzer of The Columbian writes that Chico McClatcher and the Eagles offense was bottled up.
It’s been a tough start for the Eagles, but do we really know if this is the Federal Way team that we’re going to see the rest of the season? I don’t think it’s fair to write them off, yet. The Eagles’ two losses have come to Union and Camas, both are top-5 teams. We’ll see how the rest of the season plays out.
– Matt Massey watched Kennedy run over Seattle Prep to an 18-3 win.
– Doug Drowley has this report from Mount Si’s 38-10 win over Redmond. The Mustangs forced three early turnovers, but couldn’t convert them into a big lead.
– On Friday, I was up at Lake Stevens where the Vikings hosted Marysville-Pilchuck in a much-anticipated top-10 matchup. The Tomahawks came away with a 40-28 win thanks to another solid week from their ground game. Austin Joyner played through a hip pointer and came away with the deciding blow, a 30-yard run with about a minute left.
Running back/defensive back Killian Page had this to say after the game:
On the win: “We just work really hard, we keep competing all the way to the end of everything. We don’t give up and we practice really, really hard and we just like to execute on everything that we do. Even though we mess up a lot.
On two early goal-line stands: “They were really big. I think was the determining factor of the game, honestly. There was a few turnovers that we messed up on and we gave them, but those goal-line stands were huge.”
– Cleveland, Roosevelt and Garfield were all winners yesterday in the Memorial Football Classic.
Roosevelt running back Dane Rogerson with more:
On halftime adjustments: “We went into the locker room at halftime, we knew that everything going wrong was our fault, we had a lot of penalties, we came out and we had our heads high.”
On running attack: “I think it’s pretty intimidating when we run the same play over and over and dudes can’t find an answer for it.”
– Shadle Park, Mt. Spokane and Gonzaga Prep all improved to 2-0 and Greg Lee of the Spokesman-Review writes that they have separated themselves from the pack.
