Edmonds-Woodway locks up Wesco South with win

EVERETT — Edmonds-Woodway became Wesco South league champions with a lopsided 35-0 victory over Cascade Friday night.

Warriors quarterback Davis Giles was 8-for-15 passing for 158 yards and three touchdowns and junior running back Desmond Young finished with 125 yards on the ground to lead the Warriors.

Despite what one assistant coach termed a lackluster first-quarter effort, the Warriors were able to score 21 points before halftime, due in large part to two Bruins turnovers — both occurring inside the Edmonds-Woodway 5-yard line — and a blocked punt.

The Warriors defense, meanwhile, held Cascade to 178 yards of total offense and limited quarterback Tay’lor Eubanks to just 3-for-6 passing with 53 yards and an interception. The Bruins senior running back Zac Duncan had 85 rushing yards on 16 carries.

“We came out pretty flat at first but Cascade turned the ball over and we were able to take advantage,” Edmonds-Woodway assistant coach Matt Douglas said.

Having completed divisional play with an unblemished 4-0 record, the Warriors locked in the No. 1 seed from the South and will face Lake Stevens, who secured the Wesco North No. 1 seed with Friday’s win over Marysville Pilchuck.

However, Edmonds-Woodway is only concerned with getting better as it approaches a nonleague battle with Redmond.

“We need to improve on our passing game and defensive pass coverage,” Douglas said. “We just need to get better and we will work on doing that next week.”
