Here are recaps and box scores from the rest of Friday’s local prep football games:

Glacier Peak 52, Edmonds-Woodway 0

Edmonds-Woodway had no answer for Glacier Peak quarterback Ayden Ziomas, and the Grizzlies rolled to a 52-0 non-conference home win over the Warriors.

Ziomas totaled six touchdowns (five passing, one rushing), including two scoring passes to Patrick McKenzie.

Grizzlies coach Nick Bender called the win one of most complete games in team history and praised the play of his defense and the play-calling of new defensive coordinator Shane Keck in Glacier Peak’s effort to contain Edmonds-Woodway running back Capassio Cherry.

“(Our guys) just (had) a swarm mentality,” Bender said. “We knew there would be one or two runs he would probably break open. The kids did a really good job of keeping him corralled.”

Marysville Pilchuck 63, Snohomish 34

Marysville Pilchuck racked up 525 yards rushing and scored a touchdown with its first touch of the new season in a 63-34 rout of Snohomish at Quil Ceda Stadium.

The Tomahawks’ Bryan Sanders took the opening kickoff 85 yards for a touchdown, getting MP’s season off to an auspicious start.

“Obviously the first time you touch the ball, to take it to the end zone gets everyone fired up and into the game,” Marysville Pilchuck coach Brandon Carson said. “Our sideline was excited, and that play really set us off. We blocked it pretty well and Bryan made one good cut and was off to the races.”

Carson praised the Tomahawks’ offensive line for opening up holes that allowed Trenton Hurst (four rushing touchdowns) and Sanders (two rushing touchdowns, plus the kickoff return) to have big games.

“We did a great job up front blocking and our backs did a good job blocking, too,” he said. “It was nice to get the running game going.”

Marysville Pilchuck led 28-7 at halftime, but Snohomish’s Tyler Massena helped the Panthers make it interesting.

Massena returned a kickoff 90 yards for a score in the second half and added a pair of touchdown runs.

Snohomish will face cross-town rival Glacier Peak in Week 2, while Marysville Pilchuck jumps into Wesco 3A North play with a road game at Oak Harbor.

“We expect quite a battle,” Carson said of the matchup with the Wildcats, who were 48-19 winners in their opener against Seaquam Secondary in Delta, British Columbia. “Both teams like to run the ball and run similar offenses. It’ll be a battle in the trenches.”
