All the scoring came in the first half Thursday night as Enumclaw High wrapped up its regular season with a 21-17 loss to Auburn Mountainview at Auburn Memorial Stadium.

All that’s left for the Hornets in the 2015 campaign is a Week 10 game; the Hornets will face North Thurston High at 6 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 5. The contest against the Narrows League 3A opponent will be at South Sound Stadium in Lacey.

Enumclaw concluded the regular season with a 2-5 mark in South Puget Sound League 3A play and went 3-6 overall. The Hornets opened the season with a nonleague victory over White River in the Battle of the Bridge, then added league wins over Peninsula and Auburn Riverside.

Thursday’s loss saw Enumclaw jump on the scoreboard first, thanks to a Garrett Berquist field goal.

Auburn Mountainview (5-2 league, 7-2 overall) was operating at less than full speed, with standout quarterback Gresch Jensen – who will play college ball at the University of Montana – on the sidelines due to injury. In his absence, the Lions counted on running back Bitner Wilson, who scored on a pair of first-quarter, red-zone runs to put the hosts on top 14-3.

The Hornets outscored Mountainview in the second quarter, but it wasn’t enough to secure a win. Connor Pierce sliced the Lion lead when he scored on a 7-yard run, but Auburn Mountainview answered with the game-winner when Wilson took off on a 25-yard TD jaunt.

Pierce scored in the game’s closing minutes on a short touchdown blast to account for the final margin.

Wilson was the difference-maker in the contest, cracking the 100-yard barrier on 20 carries.
