Sumner’s coach Brett McDaniel said he was pleased with the Spartans energy and teamwork.
“We were very happy with how we played Friday,” he said. “We played 13 players in the game and they all competed at a high level. Bonney Lake played hard as well and in time will be much better as they gain experience.”
Bonney Lake’s coach Brain Kovacevich said the Panthers played hard and didn’t give up.
“We will take this experience and learn from it,” Kovacevich said.
At the end of the game, Sumner School District Superintendent Sara Johnson awarded a medal to junior Taylor Graham from Bonney Lake and senior Keenen Jackson from Sumner for outstanding sportsmanship.
