HOW THE TOP 25 FARED — OCT.9

1. GRAHAM-KAPOWSIN EAGLES 6-0 (4A) beat Bellarmine Prep, 41-0

Just hours after he posted on social media he was going to EWU, QB Joshua Wood (198 passing yards, two TDs) strikes twice in first quarter in rout.

2. LAKE STEVENS VIKINGS 4-0 (4A) beat Mariner, 56-7

No. 47 4A Wesco win in a row … and counting! Top class-of-2023 RB Jayden Limar (183 rushing yards, three TDs) runs wild in limited carries for Viks.

3. GONZAGA PREP BULLPUPS 5-0 (4A) beat No. 16 Central Valley, 35-7

Being constantly challenged by downfield passes, the Bullpups’ defense pushed back – three turnovers and six sacks of Central Valley QB Luke Abshire.

4. BELLEVUE WOLVERINES 6-0 (3A) beat Newport of Bellevue, 63-9

ATH Ishaan Daniels’ 28-yard touchdown gallop midway through the first quarter got the Wing-T ball rolling – and flattening Newport defense. Six different Wolverines scored. Carson Rubin had two rushing touchdowns and Caymus Rooney and Cal Zimmerman each caught touchdown passes.

5. O’DEA FIGHTING IRISH 3-2 (3A) loses to No. 15 Eastside Catholic, 24-14

Nobody wins with eight turnovers, but RB Jason Brown (101 rushing yards, TD) and DB Kyan McDonald (INT return for score) had their moments.

6. SUMNER SPARTANS 6-0 (4A) beat Curtis, 52-6

Spartans keep busy with passing attack as QB Bo Carlson (214 passing yards, five total TDs) sharpens skills for tasty Graham-Kapowsin matchup.

7. KENNEWICK LIONS 5-1 (3A) lose to No. 11 Kamiakin, 34-20

With game tied 20-20 at halftime, Lions don’t move much on offense – and cannot hold Kamiakin down, either. QB Dayton Davis has two TDs.

8. BOTHELL COUGARS 6-0 (4A) beat Inglemoor, 42-0

Cougars take barely a minute to drive 65 yards on opening series for Logan Lacio’s 24-yard TD to Sammy Stewart – one of four first-quarter scores.

9. UNION TITANS 5-1 (4A) beat Battle Ground, 43-6 (Thu.)

RB Jaydon Jones continue to shine in workhorse role, tallying a career-high 257 rushing yards on 34 carries (and five TDs) in win over Tigers.

10. YELM TORNADOS 6-0 (3A) beat Gig Harbor, 29-14 (Thu.)

Tides matched Yelm for a half, but QB Palaina Hooper’s 20-yard third-quarter touchdown to WR Kyler Ronquillo gave Tornados breathing room.

11. KAMIAKIN BRAVES 6-0 (4A) beat No. 7 Kennewick, 34-20

Nothing left in MCC to accomplish for Braves, who are well on their way to undefeated run; Payton Graham with TD catch, two picks on defense.

12. TUMWATER THUNDERBIRDS 4-1 (2A) beat Shelton, 58-0

What can’t RB Payton Hoyt do? He rushes for 128 yards and a score, and also throws a touchdown pass to Austin Terry; defense gives up 31 yards.

13. EASTLAKE WOLVES 6-0 (4A) beat Skyline, 41-7

It was a 7-7 game after one quarter – and then RB Jack Peterson got loose for three rushing scores to spark Wolves to blowout 4A KingCo win.

14. MARYSVILLE-PILCHUCK TOMAHAWKS 6-0 (3A) beat Mount Vernon, 49-13

Dare to get in their way? Tomahawks cruise again as RBs Jordan Velasquez (147 rushing yards) and Dylan Carson (90 yards, four TDs) power attack.

15. EASTSIDE CATHOLIC CRUSADERS 4-1 (3A) beat No. 5 O’Dea, 24-14

It was all about the Eastside Catholic defense – eight turnovers (including three interceptions by Tyson Weaver) and two scoop-and-run touchdowns.

16. CENTRAL VALLEY BEARS 4-2 (4A) loses to No. 3 Gonzaga Prep, 35-7

Bears grabbed quick 7-0 lead, but QB Luke Abshire (215 passing yards, two INTs) and the offense found Gonzaga Prep’s defense a stone wall after that.

17. RICHLAND BOMBERS 5-1 (4A) beat Mead, 14-12

Panthers could smell upset – until Richland’s Joey Weissenfels unleashes school-record 80-yard punt from own end zone to flip field, end threat.

18. MOUNT SPOKANE WILDCATS 4-1 (3A) beat Ferris, 37-0

First day back for coach Terry Cloer (COVID-19) was game night – and he was greeted immediately by Ethan Moczulski field goal; 23-0 lead at half.

19. GLACIER PEAK GRIZZLIES 4-1 (4A) vs. Kamiak, canceled

Much-hyped game of two 4A unbeatens wiped away as Knights report Thursday they have COVID-19 issues. Next up – North Creek on Friday.

20. LINCOLN OF TACOMA 4-2 (3A) beat Bonney Lake, 44-0 (Thu.)

How do you get the lasso around QB Gabarri Johnson (285 passing yards, 110 rushing yards, six TDs)? Gonna take something stronger than rope.

21. SPANAWAY LAKE SENTINELS 2-1 (3A) vs. Mount Tahoma, canceled

Sentinels on the other side of the COVID-19 equation this week as Thunderbirds bow out of 3A PCL game. Next up – Bonney Lake on Thursday.

22. ROYAL KNIGHTS 5-0 (1A) plays Kiona-Benton on Monday

Knights’ 24-game winning streak will have to wait until a rare Monday game against an opponent they’ve shut out in past three games to add a win.

23. MOUNTAIN VIEW THUNDER 4-2 (3A) lost to Camas, 38-7 (Thu.)

Not the usually-efficient effort Thunder fans are used to as offense commits turnovers on first two series, and defense lets Camas go off.

24. SEATTLE PREP PANTHERS 4-2 (3A) beat Ballard, 35-21

In penalty-marred game, QB Braeden Smith wins out with his legs (four rushing TDs), including final-minute score to sew up Metro win.

25. SKYVIEW STORM 5-1 (4A) beat Kelso, 35-14 (Thu.)

“Thunder and Lightning” rushing-attack storm shifted more to the flash – RB Jaydin Knapp (215 rushing yards, four TDs) – against Highlanders.
