The News Tribune –

Zavia Frazier rushed for 160 yards and three touchdowns as Wilson cruised to a 43-22 victory over Ballard Friday night at Memorial Stadium.

Wilson’s defense also intercepted Ballard quarterback Jacob Ta’ase four times on the night.

Ta’ase scored from a yard out on fourth and goal to give Ballard the early 7-0 lead.

Wilson quickly responded with a touchdown drive of its own. A penalty on an onside kick attempt give Wilson the ball at the Ballard 43-yard line. After three runs by Frazier, Julius Yates-Brown connected with Tanner Colburn for a 22-yard touchdown to even the game at 7-7.

Colburn would later be ejected for throwing a punch.

Frazier intercepted Ta’ase on the ensuing Ballard possession to set up another touchdown drive. David Shin scored on a 10-yard run to give Wilson a lead it would never relinquish.

After a 28-yard field goal from Ballard’s Jack Dinneen closed the gap to 14-10, Wilson answered with a nine-play, 85-yard scoring drive. Frazier scored on a 15-yard run to give Wilson a 20-10 halftime lead.

Wilson quickly marched for another score with Frazier adding a 12-yard touchdown run, his second of the night. Keun Palu-Thompson intercepted Ta’ase – Wilson’s fourth interception of the game – and caught a 27-yard touchdown pass from Yates-Brown on the next play as Wilson took a commanding 34-10 lead.

After a Ballard fumbled punt snap went for a safety, Frazier added a 5-yard touchdown run for his third score of the night to give Wilson a 43-16 lead.

Ta’ase connected with Eric Henderson on an 8-yard touchdown pass for Ballard and later scored on a 9-yard touchdown run.
