Top-10 battles and divisions clinched, it was a fun weekend of preps football. Let’s take a look at what happened.
– Let’s start in Sammamish where the No. 1 4A team took it to Skyline. Bothell was absolutely dominant from start to finish in a 56-0 dismantling of the Spartans to capture its first KingCo title since 2009, coincidentally, the last time it beat Skyline.
– In the top ticket from 3A, No. 3 Eastside Catholic outlasted No. 2 O’Dea 26-20 in a Metro battle. The Crusaders clinched the Mountain Division title with the victory, but expect both teams to be in contention late in the playoffs.
– No. 6 Peninsula was victorious over Auburn Mountainview 25-20 and all but took the SPSL 3A title with the win. If Peninsula can beat winless Auburn Riverside on Thursday, it will clinch the league title.
– No. 10 Kentwood beat Kent-Meridian 38-7 to wrap up the SPSL 4A Northeast title, its third straight division championship.
– Garfield rebounded from its first division loss to beat Rainier Beach 21-14 and take second in the Metro Sound.
– No. 5 Lincoln beat Central Kistsap 41-14 to improve to 7-0. Quarterback Jordan Kitna suffered an ankle injury, though, but he played through it, according to The News Tribune.
– No. 7 Gig Harbor beat Olympia 45-14 despite quarterback Davis Alexander being under the weather, The News Tribune writes.
– The News Tribune also has this roundup from the games Friday.
– Cole Zarcone led No. 2 Camas to a 37-20 win over No. 3 Union in a statement game down south. The Columbian reports that Union lost quarterback Nolan Henry to concussion-like symptoms, and there was a scary moment when he was taken to a local hospital via ambulance. Sounds as if he’ll be OK, though.
– The Columbian also has this report from Skyview’s 35-28 upset win over No. 9 Columbia River in a rivalry game.
– No. 8 Gonzaga Prep kept on rolling with a 49-24 win over Central Valley, writes NW Preps Now.
– No. 4 Ellensburg beat No. 3 Prosser 21-14 in a game of undefeated teams.
