The Hornets host Peninsula at 7 p.m. Friday and travel to Decatur for the regular season finale at 7 p.m. Oct. 31 at Federal Way Memorial Stadium.

The Hornets are 1-2 in the South Puget Sound League 3A.

Last week Bonney Lake beat Enumclaw 14-7 at Pete’s Pool.

The game began with stiff defense from both teams. Enumclaw’s Mauricio Portillo scored first with 7:44 to go in the second quarter.

The Panthers intercepted an Enumclaw pass late in the first half but, after failing to convert, the Hornets led 7-0 entering halftime.

Enumclaw’s defense played well for three quarters, but was unable to control senior Robert Combs and the Panther offense late in the game.

At halftime, Panther coach Jason Silbaugh said, coaches challenged their seniors to step up.

Bonney Lake tied the game 7-7 midway through the third quarter. The Panthers scored one more time early in the fourth quarter on a pass to Combs, taking the lead to 14-7.

With 4:16 left to play in the game, Bonney Lake fumbled and Enumclaw recovered the ball. The Panthers stopped the Hornets on fourth and 14, forcing the Hornets to give up the ball with 1:19 left in the game.

The Panthers held onto to the ball the rest of the way.
