The Sumner football season came to end Saturday evening with a 42-7 loss to Lynden in the quarterfinal game of the state 2A tournament.

Sumner’s only score came in the fourth quarter, on a 23-yard touchdown run from senior Lokahi Kamau, followed by a Michael Smith kick for the point after.

But the rest of the game belonged to the defending 2A champion Lions, who did all of their scoring in the first half as the Spartans had no answer for Lynden quarterback Josh Kraught, who threw four touchdown passes in the victory.

The Spartans finished the year 9-3 overall with a 6-1 record in the South Puget Sound League 2A.
