EHS FOOTBALL: Hornets return home Friday

The only silver linings following Enumclaw High’s Saturday football loss to Union High were it was a nonleague contest, the Hornets were given the opportunity to see how they measure up against a top-notch Class 4A crew and, finally, the Hornets did not get shut out by the Titans.

Union had no trouble getting untracked offensively, rolling up nearly 400 yards total offense in the 38-7 drubbing of EHS.

The rendezvous began innocently enough, as Enumclaw recovered a muffed punt on the Titan 40-yard line and, trailing only 7-0, had an early chance to capitalize on an opponent’s blunder. It did not pan out for the Hornets, who found the sledding a bit rough against a miserly Titan defense that surrendered only 150 total yards of offense to the Hornets.

By intermission, the hosts were on top 21-0.

The third quarter looked better for the Hornets, though, as an impressive drive was capped by a 5-yard touchdown toss to junior tight end Tyler Carlson from quarterback Dylan Podolak, who threw for 111 passing yards on the afternoon.

EHS kicker Andy Holdener booted the extra point to cut the margin to 28-7.

Enumclaw nearly scored again in the third period, reaching the Titans’ one yard line, but the drive was thwarted.

Enumclaw, now sporting a 1-1 record, plays its first home game Friday, taking on Timberline High in another nonleague contest.
