Enumclaw and White River both came away with a win, as well as one tie, last weekend.
That’s the final tally for both Hornets teams following three “Battle of the Bridge” tussles that saw the neighboring schools square off on the football field, volleyball court and soccer pitch.
The week concluded Friday night when Enumclaw’s gridiron gang got the best of White River, defeating the Buckley squad 31-6.
On Oct. 27, it was White River doing the celebrating as the volleyball team registered a 3-1 win in their home gym.
The cross-river week had started a day earlier, Oct. 26, at the Enumclaw Expo Center where the Plateau soccer teams battled to a 1-1 draw.
Here’s a quick look at how each contest went.
Things quickly went Enumclaw’s way, with the home team jumping to a 17-0, first-quarter lead at the Expo Center. The lead ballooned to 24-0 before each squad managed touchdowns in the final period.
Enumclaw first cracked the scoreboard on a 45-yard strike from Malcolm Harper to Dylan Watterson. The rest of the first quarter included a 20-yard field goal by Noah Seabrands and a short TD run by Dane Johnson.
The rest of the EHS scoring came via a second scoring toss from Harper to Watterson, a five-yard TD run by Dawson Harding and, in the end, four extra-point kicks by Seabrands.
