By scoring two touchdowns in the second quarter and two more in the fourth the Enumclaw Hornets were able to register a 27-15, Friday night victory over the visiting crew from Federal Way.

On the turf at the Enumclaw Expo Center, the Hornets pushed their record to 2-2 in North Puget Sound League 4A play and 3-3 overall.

This week’s opponent, Auburn Riverside, sports identical league and overall records. The two will square off at 7 p.m. Friday at Auburn Memorial Stadium.

Enumclaw’s victory over Federal Way opened with a scoreless first quarter, but the Hornets turned the tide when Christian Wakefield scored on a 17-yard run in the second period. After Cameron Terrell tacked on the extra-point kick, it was 7-0 for the host Hornets.

The busy second quarter saw the Eagles tie the game, only to have EHS regain the lead on a short TD run by quarterback Jacob Revell.

The Hornets could not maintain their momentum and lost the lead. Federal Way had the only TD of the third period and successfully made a two-point conversion.

But the final eight minutes belonged to Enumclaw, courtesy of two touchdown runs by Taylor Beaird. The first was from just a yard out, but the second was a bit more exciting, covering 56 yards.

White River falls to Fife Trojans, now 1-4 on season

White River’s football season suffered another setback Friday night, as the Hornets fell 22-7 to Fife High in Buckley.

The loss was the third straight for the Hornets, who now sit at 1-4 in South Puget Sound League 2A play and 1-5 overall. The highlight of the Hornet season came Sept. 16 in the form of a 28-0 whitewashing of the Foster Bulldogs.

The latest loss featured a 15-yard touchdown toss from Trevor Johnson to Ethan Clay. The second-quarter score, which included an extra-point kick by Greg Piontek, allowed the Hornets to head into halftime with the score tied at 7-7.

But that was all the White River offense could muster. The Trojans – who improved to 4-1 in SPSL 2A play and 5-1 overall – received touchdown runs from Jackson Cooley and Xavier Preston in the third quarter to polish off the night’s scoring.

For White River, Johnson completed six of 11 passes for 49 yards; Clay hauled in three receptions, good for 29 yards; and Devyn Hager carried the ball 12 times, gaining 61 yards in the process.

Defensively, White River’s Rico Martinez came up with an interception and Chase Lydig had a 17-yard return after recovering a Fife fumble.
