Football: Wild finish pushes Enumclaw to 5-0

White River also came out with a win, but Bonney Lake and Sumner had rough games.

The Enumclaw Hornets improved to 5-0 on the season thanks to a hard-fought, Saturday night victory over the Kennedy Catholic Lancers.

It was a marathon, nonleague encounter at Highline Memorial Stadium that resulted in a 57-48 EHS triumph.

The Hornets used some late heroics to secure the high-profile victory. After the Lancers posted their final TD of the night to pull within a point at 49-48, they gambled with a two-point conversion. The EHS defense batted down a pass with less than a minute to play to keep a slim margin. Then, when Kennedy attempted an onside kick, Anthony Russell plucked the loose ball and scooted for a touchdown, providing the final margin of victory.

Offensively, Jackson McCann ran for three touchdowns; Matthew Dion, Nick Harberts and Kameron McKee added a rushing TD each; and Bryson Engebretsen had a TD reception from Kellen Kranc.

The Enumclaw defense came up with three interceptions off highly-touted Lancer quarterback Sam Huard.

The Hornets, the defending North Puget Sound League 4A champions, will next be tested this Friday by Kentwood. Kickoff is set for 7 p.m. at the Enumclaw Expo Center.

WHITE RIVER

White River scored the final three touchdowns Friday night to secure a Homecoming victory over the visiting Foster Bulldogs.

The SPSL 2A victory allowed the Hornets to improve to improve to 4-0 in league play and 4-1 overall.

TJ Stroschein tossed four TD passes and Jack Ervien ran for two scores to lead the offense.

White River will look to remain undefeated in SPSL play this Friday when they take on Foss High. The 7 p.m. game will be played at Mount Tahoma High School in Tacoma.

SUMNER

The Spartans ran up against Rogers High Friday night and dropped a South Puget Sound League 4A contest to the Rams.

The 14-10 defeat left Sumner with a record of 3-2 in league play and overall.

Sumner’s points came courtesy of a 78-yard touchdown run by Ra’Sun Williams and a fourth-quarter, 34-yard field goal by Wyatt Redding.

This week brings something different for Sumner High. The Spartans have a Thursday night, nonleague contest against the Camas Papermakers. Game time is 7 p.m. at Sunset Chev Stadium.

BONNEY LAKE

The Panthers scored plenty of points early in the season but have now been blanked two games in a row.

The second shutout came Friday night when Bonney Lake was toasted 42-0 by the first place Lakes Lancers.

The Panthers hope to bounce back into the victory column this Friday when they take on Spanaway Lake at Sunset Chev Stadium. Both will enter the 7 p.m. game with 1-2 league records, 2-3 overall.
