Area football teams add to victory column

Enumclaw remains undefeated, but all four schools saw wins last weekend.

ENUMCLAW

The Hornets remain the only area squad with a perfect record after six weeks of play.

With a Friday night, 35-14 crushing of the Kentwood Conquerors, Enumclaw improved to 3-0 in North Puget Sound League play and 6-0 overall.

To keep their record clean, the Hornets this week will have to knock off Todd Beamer (2-0, 4-1).

The Friday night contest will be at the Enumclaw Expo Center.

WHITE RIVER

Running back Jack Ervien had a dream night, scoring five touchdowns and rushing for 265 yards as the White River Hornets pasted the Foss Falcons in South Puget Sound League 2A play.

Last weekend’s road win allowed the Hornets to improve to 5-0 in league play and 5-1 overall. Next up is a home game this Friday, Oct. 12, against Franklin Pierce. The Cardinals sit at 4-0 and will be looking to leapfrog the Hornets in the standings.

SUMNER

The Spartans secured a signature victory during a rare Thursday night contests, beating the visiting Camas Papermakers 14-7 under the lights of Sunset Chev Stadium.

Camas was largely stymied by Spartan defensive back Donovan Clark. The junior intercepted four passes, repeatedly sending the Camas offense off the field.

Sumner’s points came on second-quarter touchdown runs by Bryce Bostic and Ra’Sun Williams. The play of the night, however, belonged to Brooks Morin, who sacked the Camas quarterback on the game’s final play. The Papermakers had marched to Sumner’s 11-yard line and were knocking on the door until Morin’s tackle.

BONNEY LAKE

The Panthers improved to .500 on the season Friday night, slipping past the visiting Sentinels from Spanaway Lake High.

The 29-26 victory at Sunset Chev Stadium brought Bonney Lake to 3-3 in Pierce County League play and 3-3 overall.

This Friday, BL takes on Wilson of Tacoma. Game time is 7 p.m. at Stadium High School.
