Prep football results for Friday, Oct. 25

With Week 8 in the books for all but one local team, league titles were earned, postseason berth secured and jostling for positioning in the playoffs continued.

Lake Stevens, Marysville Pilchuck and Snohomish all came away with conference championships Friday night.

The Vikings continued their dominance of Wesco 4A, clinching a seventh straight league title with a 70-0 rout of Jackson. The Tomahawks outclassed another Wesco 3A North opponent, topping Arlington 42-14 to bring the league’s championship back to Snohomish County for the first time since 2015. And the Panthers laid claim to their second straight league championship with a 58-14 blowout victory over Meadowdale.

Monroe secured Wesco 4A’s No.2 seed and a Week 10 playoff home game with a win over Glacier Peak in a game televised on ROOT Sports, and Mount Vernon locked up a playoff berth with a win over Kamiak, bouncing conference foe Mariner from the playoff picture in the process.

Shorecrest clinched Wesco 3A South’s fourth and final playoff spot with a victory over Lynnwood, eliminating the Royals from the playoffs. Edmonds-Woodway locked up the league’s No. 2 seed in a victory over Everett and Meadowdale fell to the No. 3 seed after its loss to Snohomish.

In Wesco 3A North, Arlington ended up with the league’s No. 3 seed with the loss to Marysville Pilchuck. The Tomahawks, Eagles, Squalicum and Ferndale had already clinched Week 9 crossover berths in Week 7.

Lynden sealed up the Northwest 2A Sky Division crown with a win over Blaine and Sedro-Woolley’s loss Archbishop Murphy. The Wildcats’ win over Sedro-Woolley clinched a Week 9 bye and the league’s No. 3 seed in the winner-to-state Week 10 playoffs. And Lakewood wrapped up the league’s No. 2 seed with a rout of Burlington-Edison.

In North Sound Conference play, South Whidbey and King’s kept their conference-championship aspirations alive with victories of Granite Falls and Sultan, respectively.

Here’s how it all went down:

Mariner 45, Cascade 28

On the back of Prince Riley, who carried the ball 18 times for 149 yards and two touchdowns, the Mariner Marauders cruised to a 45-28 win over the Cascade Bruins.

Roman Savchuk also had an impressive day for the Marauders. He was on the receiving end of a 36-yard touchdown to end the first half, returned an interception for a touchdown and recovered a fumble.

With Davanta Murphy-Mcmillan sidelined for the second straight week, running back Michael Purl did an excellent job filling in for the Cascade star, who’s currently leading Wesco 4A in rushing. Purl had 20 carries for 210 yards and two touchdowns on the day.

With the win, Mariner moves to 4-3 in Wesco 4A, and 4-5 overall, while the loss drops Cascade to 2-5 in league play, and 3-6 overall.

The loss eliminated Cascade from postseason contention.

Ferndale 54, Stanwood 19

Stanwood freshman quarterback Wyatt Custer threw a pair of touchdown passes and Garrett Craig made a two field goals of 40-plus yards, but Ferndale’s Wing-T rushing attack overwhelmed the Spartans defensively in a Wesco 3A North contest.

Ferndale improved to 4-4 overall and 4-2 in league play with the win, and Stanwood fell to 2-6, 1-5 with the loss.

With Marysville Pilchuck’s 42-14 win over Arlington on Friday, Ferndale is now tied with Arlington for second place in Wesco 3A North. Squalicum could join Ferndale and Arlington at 4-2 if it beats 1-6 Oak Harbor on Saturday at Civic Stadium.

Although Stanwood was out-classed on Friday, there were bright spots for the Spartans going forward. Custer hooked up with fellow freshman Ryder Bumgarner on a few big plays, and threw one of his two touchdown passes to sophomore Logan Schweitzer.

The other scoring connection was a 64-yard strike to senior Elijah Prout late in the third quarter.

Craig made a 44-yard field goal in the first quarter to get the Spartans on the board, and added a 43-yard kick on the stroke of halftime. Craig made both kicks, and attempted a 48-yarder, on a blustery evening in Ferndale.

Cedarcrest 14, Mountlake Terrace 13

Cedarcrest tight end Matthew Weinert caught a 2-yard touchdown pass from Cameron Kohlruss late in the fourth quarter, capping a 10-play drive, and Spencer Coomer batted down Mountlake Terrace quarterback Elijah Dahlman’s fourth-down pass to seal the win for the Red Wolves in a Northwest 2A Lake Division contest on Friday.

The game began in heavy rain and included a half-hour lightning delay.

With the game tied 7-7 to begin the second half, Mountlake Terrace’s Noah Thompson recovered a Cedarcrest fumble in the end zone to put the Hawks up 13-7, but the ensuing extra point was blocked.

That set up Cedarcrest’s game-winning drive.

Mountlake Terrace’s Jordan Sims racked up 134 yards on 24 carries and opened the game’s scoring with a five-yard touchdown run in the first quarter for the Hawks.

Cedarcrest countered with a 28-yard touchdown pass from Kohlruss to Andrew Kevin to tie the game at 7.

With the win, Cedarcrest (6-2 overall, 2-1 league) likely earns the final Week 9 playoff spot among Northwest 2A Lake Division and KingCo 2A teams.
