The Bonney Lake Panthers won their second game of the season beating the Enumclaw Hornets 14-7 Friday at Pete’s Pool.

The game got off to a slow start with Enumclaw scoring first with 7:44 to go in the second quarter. This would be the only time the Hornets would score.

The Panthers intercepted an Enumclaw pass late in the first half but were not able to convert. The Hornets led 7-0 entering halftime.

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

“We relied on our senior linemen to push us through the rest of the game,” he said.

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 senior Robert 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. Enumclaw gave the ball over on downs with 1:19 left in the game.

The Panthers held onto to the ball for the remainder of the game.

Bonney Lake controlled the ball better in the second half with fewer turnovers and defense stepped up making tackles and eliminating Enumclaw’s running game, Silbaugh said.

The Panthers have a two game winning streak and improve to 2-1 in league play and 2-5 overall.
Bonney Lake faces Lakes at 7 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 25 at Sunset Chev Stadium.
