Sumner led Bonney Lake all four quarters. At the half, Sumner’s lead was 29-15.

The remaining two quarters of the game were dominated by Sumner. By the end of the third quarter Bonney Lake trailed 47-20. Sumner added 14 to its score in the fourth quarter and the Panthers added 15 but that wasn’t enough.

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.

The Bonney Lake boys next game is at 7 p.m. today, Wednesday against Rogers at Bonney Lake High School. And the Spartans face off against Orting at 5:15 p.m. on Friday at Orting High School.
