Sumner advances to state Final Four

The No. 3-ranked Sumner Spartans charged into the Class 4A Final Four with a come-from-behind, 16-13 victory over the Woodinville Falcons.

The No. 3-ranked Sumner Spartans continued padding their already-impressive resumé Friday night, charging into the Class 4A Final Four with a come-from-behind, 16-13 victory over the Woodinville Falcons. The two squared off at Pop Keeney Stadium in Bothell, which serves as the Falcons’ home turf.

The Falcons entered the contest with lofty credentials of their own, securing a KingCo football championship on the way to a perfect 11-0 record. The Spartans also entered at 11-0, with a South Puget Sound League 4A title to their credit.

Sumner’s championship quest continues Nov. 26 against either Camas or Skyline. Should the Spartans land in the 4A championship game, they’ll take the field at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 3, in the Tacoma Dome.

Sumner’s victory over Woodinville presented challenges, most notably due to the absence of top running back Connor Wedington, sidelined with a shoulder injury.

The Spartans managed only a Nick Phillips field goal in the first half, but went ahead 16-6 when Tre Weed scored on a short touchdown runs in both the third and fourth quarters. The second TD was made possible by a long completion from Luke Ross to Tyson Rainwater.

The Falcons scored the final touchdown of the night but Sumner was able to run out the clock on the way to the Final Four.
