Inside Woodinville’s upset win over Skyline

Woodinville came away with the win of the week, upsetting No. 2 Skyline on the road with a 26-23 win. The Falcons improve to 3-1 and 2-1 in KingCo.

“This is a pretty big win for us,” quarterback Nick Fouch said. “First week was a kind of rough week for us. To come out in this game and play as well as we did … big for our community.”

Fouch is referring to a 21-0 loss to Mount Si in the season-opener. Most KingCo teams play Bothell and Skyline back-to-back weeks and with those teams being looked at as favorites to make deep playoff runs, Woodinville put itself in a tough position with the loss to the Wildcats. The win over Skyline changes the direction of the Woodinville season and makes a rivalry matchup with No. 1 Bothell on Friday an important one.

To get it done, Woodinville jumped out to an early  lead, scoring on its first possession and then buckled down for a back-and-forth game. A field goal right before half gave the Falcons momentum, Fouch said.

“Our defense played very well,” he said. “They got in game mode and shut it down for us. That was a big help.

“[Skyline’s] a very good team, we knew what we were going to get with them.”
