EHS FOOTBALL: Undefeated Lakes crushes Hornets

Enumclaw High visited Harry Lang Stadium Friday to tangle with the highly touted 7-0 Lakes football squad and, when the dust mercifully cleared, the Lancers had coasted to huge 69-0 victory.

Enumclaw High visited Harry Lang Stadium Friday to tangle with the highly touted 7-0 Lakes football squad and, when the dust mercifully cleared, the Lancers had coasted to huge 69-0 victory.

EHS should not feel all alone in its misery, as the Lancers pulverized Decatur 61-0 a week earlier and had outscored its previous six challengers by an average of 55-7.

Lakes wasted little time creating a comfortable advantage for itself as it had bolted out to a 56-0 upper hand by intermission, putting up points at a rapid clip on long touchdown air strikes of 95, 73, 56 and 46 yards.

In the second half Lakes morphed from a high-flying pitch and catch act to a devastating rushing attack.

The Lancers shifted down a couple of gears and went into their clock-burning ground game, behind 6-foot, 10-inch offensive tackle Zack Banner. Try as it might to pull back on the reins of its relentless point-scoring tank, Lakes scored yet again when fleet-footed tailback Levonte Littlejohn busted loose on a 56-yard overland jaunt to pay dirt.

The Lancers added an extra point kick from Bo Wittig, who split the uprights a perfect 9-out-of-9 times for an evening’s toil and additionally legged through a tandem of field goals in the fourth stanza.

EHS fell to an overall mark of 1-6.

Plateau SPSL 3A bragging rights will be on the line Friday when offensive-minded Bonney Lake, which has been averaging 40 points per contest, invades Pete’s Pool at 7 p.m.
