E-W notches first-ever win over Cascade

Herald staff

EDMONDS – Nobody really recalls the last time an Edmonds School District football team, let alone Edmonds-Woodway, beat Cascade.

You’d have to go back to the days of Edmonds High School before its merger with Woodway. Maybe after Edmonds-Woodway’s 27-10 Westen Conference 4A victory Friday at Edmonds Stadium, someone will start keeping track.

“It didn’t surprise me,” E-W running back Landon Hall said. “We’ve been beating good teams all year.”

Early indications had the game looking as even as a football game could be. But Hall and the Warriors soon dispersed those notions.

Hall finished with 22 carries for 187 yards and three touchdowns.

Hall opened the scoring with an 12-yard touchdown run in the first quarter. In the second quarter, after Hall scored on a 30-yard run, E-W’s Matt Heinle recovered the Warriors’ kickoff. Hall later had an 11-yard touchdown run giving the Warriors a 21-3 halftime advantage.

“He proved what kind of player he is,” Edmonds-Woodway coach John Gradwohl said.

Edmonds-Woodway’s defense was outstanding.

“Our coaches all came up with a great scheme,” defensive coordinator Joe Webster said.

“I told the kids to take it out on them and you can take it out on me,” said Webster, who had his head shaved by the team after the victory.

Cascade didn’t reach the end zone until the third quarter when Mike Skoor caught a 7-yard pass from Zach Sweeny. The Warriors would hold off a Cascade threat with 8:46 remaining in the fourth quarter when it failed to convert on fourth down from the E-W 13-yard line.

After an exchange of punts, E-W fullback Chris Stokes put the game away when he broke loose for an 80-yard touchdown run.
