Knights dash to glory, 14-7 OT win over E-W


Herald Writer

EDMONDS – Ryan Clay provided the overtime heroics and Mike Boyle secured the game for Kamiak Friday at Edmonds Stadium.

A botched snap on a field goal attempt in overtime forced Clay to make a dash for the end zone. He scrambled for a 17-yard touchdown that turned out to BE the game-winner for Kamiak as the Knights’ beat Edmonds-Woodway 14-7 in overtime in a Western Conference 4A game.

While Warriors playoff hopes were dashed, Kamiak (6-1 in the league, 7-1 overall) secured the third playoff spot from the Wesco 4A. Had the Warriors (4-3, 5-3) won, the victory would have given them their first playoff berth since Edmonds-Woodway High School was formed.

Edmonds-Woodway, who have surprised many this season, put itself in position to win Friday, but a breakdown in offense gave Kamiak’s defense a chance to shine.

With the score tied 7-7 with 54 seconds remaining in the fourth quarter, Warrior quarterback Brian Doty was intercepted by Kamiak’s Scott Haight, giving the Knights the ball on the Edmonds-Woodway 51-yard line. A few plays later, on fourth-and-2 with 23 seconds remaining, Knights running back Justin Washington, ran for a first down. After an incomplete pass, place-kicker Ryan Carlson set up for a 39-yard field goal, but the kick was short and the game went go into overtime.

Each team got the opportunity to take the ball on the opposing team’s 25-yard line in overtime.

Kamiak got the ball first, but penalties forced the Knights to attempt a 27-yard field goal. That’s when Clay found the end zone for a 17-yard score.

Gavin Riach tipped Doty’s pass on the ensuing drive for Edmonds-Woodway and the ball found its way into the arms of Boyle, his second interception of the night. Doty was 4-for-14 for 48 yards with four interceptions.

Both offenses struggled although Kamiak’s finished with a more-than-respectable 303 total yards. Edmonds-Woodway finished with 154 yards, led by running back Landon Hall who ran 17 times for 72 yards and a touchdown.

Hall’s touchdown put the Warriors on the board first after a scoreless first quarter.

Matt Heinle caught a 44-yard pass from Doty to set up Hall’s 3-yard run two plays later in the second quarter.

Kamiak evened the score with 11:27 remaining in the fourth quarter. On first-and-5, quarterback Ryan Jones passed to Haight for the touchdown.

The Knights’ threatened to score twice in the first half, but the Warriors’ defense withheld the attack.

With 42 second left in the first half, Doty threw two consecutive incomplete passes to the right corner. Then, running back Justin Washington ran for 4 yards, setting up a fourth-and-5, which Kamiak couldn’t convert.

Washington led the Knights with 122 yards on 19 carries.

Kamiak first threat came when the Knights’ drove to the Warriors’ 15-yard line on its first drive, but couldn’t convert on fourth down.

Edmonds-Woodway-Hall 3 run (Bahl kick)

Kamiak-Haight 5 pass from Jones (Carlson kick)

Kamiak-Clay 17 run (Carlson kick)

Records-Kamiak 6-1 in league, 7-1 overall.

Edmonds-Woodway 4-3, 5-3.
