Lakes has a 3-2 SPSL record. An Enumclaw win would give the Hornets a fourth place tie and a shot at postseason play. The 3A District playoffs begin Nov. 7.

Against Auburn Riverside, Enumclaw posted 10 points in the first quarter.

Connor Pierce scored a 7-yard rushing touchdown for the first score and  Garrett Berquist kicked the extra point and added a field goal.

The Hornet defense held the Ravens scoreless through the first half by both pressuring the quarterback and solid secondary play.

Casey Harberts scored a 27-yard touchdown in the second quarter to put Enumclaw up 16-0 at the half.

In the third quarter Pierce scored again from 8-yards out to seal the win.

The Ravens scored both of their touchdowns in the fourth quarter.
