SBLive’s top 10 games of week 12
10. Yelm struggled with various illnesses and injuries and came out of the gate a little slower than it wanted against Kennewick, but a pick-6 from Linebacker Ray Wright the tornadoes calmed down in the second quarter.
9. Stanwood’s season ultimately ended at the hands of O’Dea in the 3A Quarterfinals, but Spartans are running back Ryder Bumgarner added a few final plays to his highlight role, including a 65-yard touchdown run in the first quarter.
8. The North Kitsap defense put on a take-the-ball-away clinic against Anacortes, forcing six turnovers. Five of those were interceptions, however Alex Hitchings third pick of the game sealed the deal for the Vikings.
7. In a back-and-forth game between Graham-Kapowsin and Sumner, the game was tied at 21-21, with time running out in the fourth quarter before Eagles quarterback Daveon Superales ran straight up the middle for a 27-yard score – and win that.
6. It pays to take a risk sometimes. As time ran out in the first half, WF West could have opted to let it run but went for some points instead. quarterback Gavin Fugate associated with favorite destination Gage Brumfield for a 24-yard touchdown
5. Kennedy Catholic Runs Back Xeree Alexander decided to remind the Skyline defense that he’s a member of the NCAA Division for a reason. Alexander threw off several tacklers before throwing in a huge stiff arm to score one of his four touchdowns. (Video by Lauren Smith/The News Tribune)
4. Lincoln was quarterback in the final game of his distinguished high school career Gabriel Johnson made a last play defense a major headache, causing nearly everyone to miss a 39-yard gain.
3. Most people know by now that the Lynden football team’s defense is tough to beat. defensive back Kobe Bar showed why against Highline last week by downing an interception, but then showed his athleticism and ran 84 yards back for a score.
2. In the wildest sequence of the weekend, Bellevue was a point down, forcing the Wolverines to attempt an onside kick. They converted and then Kicker Luke Scoma shortly thereafter nailed a 43-yard field goal for a 22-22 3A quarterfinal win over Lincoln.
1. Being three points down in the playoffs isn’t a place every team wants to achieve, but Emerald Ridge didn’t flinch. With less than 10 seconds in the game, Jake Schakel attached to Mitchell Condon for a 6-yard score to take the lead. (Video by Emerald Ridge Football)
