Enumclaw wins third straight, WR after elusive first victory

EHS won 56-12 against the Washington Patriots.


The Enumclaw Hornets posted big offensive numbers for the third week in a row and, not coincidentally, recorded their third straight victory.

The Hornets routed the Washington Patriots 56-12 Saturday evening. Since losing to the immensely talented Steilacoom Sentinels in the season opener, Enumclaw has scored 49 points against Orting High, 56 against Mount Tahoma and 56 last weekend.

In the dominating performance over Washington High, EHS quarterback Cameron Brauer tossed three touchdown passes, the first to Kaden Loop and two more to Drew Kuzaro. Rushing TDs came from Royal Snyder, Ricky Bonthius, Dane Johnson and Emmit Otero, and Cameron Brazier returned a Patriot fumble 35 yards for a score.

This Friday, Enumclaw travels to face a tough Eatonville squad that sits at 4-0 in league play and 4-1 overall. The Cruisers have averaged nearly 43 points in each of their league victories. Eatonville is playing its home games this season at Art Crate Stadium on the Bethel High School campus.


Playing a rare Thursday night game, the White River High football team saw its season record fall to 0-4 at the famed Stadium Bowl.

The event was held on Thursday due to ongoing issues with available officials and the venue is home-away-from-home for the Wilson Rams. The Tacoma school notched a 19-8 victory during the nonleague affair.

White River’s offense continued its all-season struggles. The squad has managed just one touchdown in each of its games and the eight points against the Rams was a season-high output.

The Hornets’ lone TD came courtesy of a 69-yard scoring run by Payne Plaster, who also carried for the two-point conversion. He also had the team’s only pass completion of the night, a 21-yard strike to Devin Zweifel.

White River had some better numbers on defense, where Jay Selander had eight solo tackles, assisted on four others and forced a fumble. Luke Tranquillo recovered a pair of Wilson fumbles and recorded a quarterback sack.

White River has just two contests remaining on pandemic-shortened schedule. After two weeks on the road the Hornets return home this Friday to host the Washington Patriots and close out the campaign April 2 by traveling to Enumclaw for the annual Battle of the Bridge.
