Area football teams play final games of season

Enumclaw and White River ended their season with a loss, but Sumner and Bonney Lake had exciting last games.

Football is finished from the Plateau to the Valley, as all four area teams have seen the 2018 come to a close.

Both Enumclaw and White River had advanced in district play and needed just a single victory to land in state tournaments. But both fell short Friday night, putting an end to their seasons.

Meanwhile, Sumner and Bonney Lake played their 10th and final games Friday night. Neither had qualified for postseason play, but slated a Week 10 contest against another nonplayoff crew.

ENUMCLAW

The Hornets had a tough road from the beginning, paired in the district round against the Union Titans, the No. 1 ranked squad in the state’s 4A classification.

The Titans, from Camas, showed they were indeed worthy of their top ranking, securing a 55-37 victory over Enumclaw.

The game was played on the campus of Evergreen High School in Vancouver.

Enumclaw finished the season with an overall record of 7-3.

WHITE RIVER

White River had the home field advantage and was taking on a team it had defeated during the regular season. But those things didn’t matter at all Friday night when the Washington Patriots rang up a 27-10 victory.

The district victory allowed Washington to advance to the 16-team Class 2A tournament, where they are seeded No. 16 and will open tourney play against No. 1 Hockinson.

The Hornets finished the South Puget Sound League 2A campaign with a 6-1 record, good for second place, and went 6-2 during the regular season. That was followed by a loss to Eatonville in a league crossover game and the district loss to Washington.

SUMNER

The Spartans finished with a bang, crushing Auburn Riverside 44-0 in the season finale.

Sumner had finished the South Puget Sound League 4A season with a 5-3 mark, tied for third place. In a three-way playoff on Oct. 30, the Spartans were bounced while Rogers and Curtis advanced. For the entire season, Sumner wound up 7-3.

BONNEY LAKE

The Panthers put an exclamation point on the season with a 49-7 drubbing of Mount Tahoma.

Bonney Lake had finished the Pierce County League campaign with a 3-4 record. Friday’s Week 10 triumph allowed the Panthers to finish with an overall break-even mark of 5-5.
