The Bonney Lake Panthers built on its mid season winning streak Friday by beating the Lakes Lancers 24-21 on senior night in the final home game of the season.

“We played tough teams and pushed us to be better,” Bonney Lake coach Jason Silbaugh said. “The more you play, the better you get.”

Lakes took an early lead 56 seconds into the game on an 80 yard touchdown run. The 7-0 lead wouldn’t last long as Bonney Lake tied the game midway through the first quarter on a 55-yard pass from quarterback Isaiah Weed to junior Dillion Jordon.

Lakes took the lead back on a second quarter touchdown with 9:04 remaining. Shortly after the ensuing kickoff, Lakes recovered a fumble by Bonney Lake senior Robert Combs. Lancers increased its lead to 21-7 with a 23 yard quarterback keeper.

The Panthers would score one more time in the first half on a pass from Weed to senior Alex Schantz. Bonney Lake found itself with the ball one more time with an interception by senior Logan Coutts. The clock ran out and the Panthers would not score on its final drive of the half.

Lakes led halftime, 21-14.

One of the differences in the game was coming out in the second half and controlling the ball better on offense and not turning it over as much, Silbaugh said.

The first score of the second half came with 7:28 to go in the fourth quarter as Bonney Lake tied the game 21-21.

The Panthers with 1:54 to play had third and 10 at the Lancers’ 10 yard line. Bonney Lake failed to score a touchdown but kicked a field goal with 1:25 to go, taking a three point lead.

Bonney Lake intercepted Lakes and took a knee, winning its third straight game. The Panthers improved to 3-1 in conference play and 3-5 overall.

Silbaugh said it is tough to prepare on a short week but the Panthers will look at what they do well and will build off it.

The last regular season game is at 7 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 31 against Auburn Mountainview in Auburn.
