The Bonney Lake Panthers and Sumner Spartans face each other in the Sunset Bowl at 7 p.m. at Sunset Chev Stadium.

The Sunset Bowl is the second to last game of the season this year.

With the Panthers and Spartans in the same league this season for the first time in five years, this game will mean more than a rivalry victory.

“This year it will determine where the teams end up in league standings, it could determine a playoff spot, as well as bragging rights!,” Sumner School District Athletic Director Tim Thomsen said in an email.

Bonney Lake coach Jason Silbaugh said “It is amazing how big this game can be for the community and the district.”

He added, “It is a throwback to how Friday nights used to be, when people would go out to support their local community team.”

Plan on arriving early, seating is expected to fill up fast.

Red Robin’s Special Olympics Tip-A-Cop event is coming to Bonney Lake Saturday, Oct. 25.

Every year, Red Robins across the country allow uniformed officers to act as waiters retrieving water, fry refills, ranch refills and other tasks throughout the restaurants.

Patrons are then given an envelope where they can tip the officers.

All proceeds are given to the Special Olympics.

This year, the Bonney Lake Police Department will be participating.

There will be two shifts at the Bonney Lake Red Robin, one starting at 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. and the second shift 4 to 8 p.m.

Based on the success of the event, Officer Daron Wolschleger said officers may work during the hour break in between the shifts instead.

“We are very excited to participate now that we have a Red Robin in Bonney Lake,” Wolschleger said.
