Joel Beshore, Lamar football

Lamar is eyeing a spot in the Class 2 title game, and Beshore used his legs to get them a step further last weekend. He carried the ball 14 times for 124 yards while throwing for two touchdowns during a 35-14 win over Ava.

During North County’s 49-28 win over Vashon, the running back had 168 yards rushing and four touchdowns. Smith, single-handedly, scored as many times as the opposition.
