How the Top 25 Washington high school football teams fared: Eastside Catholic makes a statement; Woodinville rallies past Monroe



Here’s a look at how Scorebook Live’s Top 25 Washington high school football teams fared in games played Sept. 12-14. These are our all-classification rankings.

1. Eastside Catholic, 2-0 (3A) beat Central Catholic (Oregon) 44-21

It’s no secret Eastside Catholic is the most talented team in the state of Washington. But are the Crusaders also the best team in the Pacific Northwest? Perhaps Friday’s convincing win over the Rams gave an answer.

2. Lake Stevens, 2-0 (4A) beat No. 12 Lincoln 35-26

Surviving three turnovers, and turning away more than a few promising Lincoln drives, Lake Stevens held off the Abes at Lincoln Bowl in Tacoma.

3. Woodinville, 2-0 (4A) beat No. 24 Monroe 21-20

In one of the best games of the weekend, Woodinville rallied from a 20-7 fourth-quarter deficit to edge Monroe. Woodinville RB Joey Johnson had a monster game: 28 rushes, 252 yards and a TD.

4. O’Dea, 2-0 (3A) beat Bethel 27-14

O’Dea rallied from a 14-7 halftime deficit to beat Bethel on the road.

5. Graham-Kapowsin, 2-0 (4A) beat Bellarmine Prep 21-10

It took two days, but Graham-Kapowsin eventually rallied for a lightning-delayed win over Bellarmine Prep. Eagles’ QB Nate Thomas threw two TD passes in the final 2:30 to secure the victory.

6. Kennedy Catholic, 2-0 (4A) beat No. 17 Bothell 41-21

Sam Huard threw 5 TD passes and the Lancers’ defense hounded Bothell quarterback Andrew Sirmon at will in their 41-21 non-conference triumph Saturday at Highline District Stadium in Burien.

7. Chiawana, 2-0 (4A) beat Kennewick 37-0

After forcing eight turnovers in a shutout of Kennewick the Riverhawks’ defense is looking like one of the best units in the state.

8. Hockinson, 1-1 (2A) lost to Archbishop Murphy 27-21

In perhaps the biggest upset of the weekend, Archbishop Murphy went into Hockinson and snapped the Hawks’ 28-game win streak. Wildcats QB Victor Gabalis had two rushing TDs in the victory.

9. Puyallup, 2-0 (4A) beat Emerald Ridge 42-0

The Vikings have outscored their first two opponents by a combined score of 70-3. It will get tougher in Week 3 as they visit Sumner.

10. Lakes, 1-0 (3A) did not play

Lakes’ Week 2 game at Central Kitsap was canceled due to the threat of violence.

11. Camas, 2-0 (4A) beat Hazen 70-7

The Papermakers poured it on in a rout of Hazen. Senior WR/CB Tyler Forner had two punt return TDs.

12. Lincoln, 0-2 (3A) lost to No. 2 Lake Stevens 35-26

After a 24-14 loss to Camas a week ago – then this loss to the reigning Class 4A state runner-up – Lincoln coach Masaki Matsumoto remains upbeat about his squad. “I’ve told our players, I feel really good about our team,” Matsumoto said. “It is going to be up to us coaches and players to respond.”

13. Steilacoom, 1-1 (2A) lost to No. 19 Union 41-13

Five-star athlete Emeka Egbuka scored two touchdowns in the second half to put the Sentinels on the board. But it was all Union in another lightning-delayed game.

Kannon Katzer dazzled again, rushing for 213 yards and scoring four TDs to lead a lethal Mt. Spokane offense.

15. Tumwater, 2-0 (2A) beat Yelm 54-27

In yet another lightning-delayed game Dylan Paine rushed for 166 yards and five touchdowns as Tumwater scored 50+ for the second straight week.

16. Mead, 1-1 (4A) lost to Coeur d’Alene 42-28

Caleb Shawen rushed for 159 yards and two TDs, but the Panthers couldn’t slow down CDA’s passing attack.
