Prep football roundup for April 1

The final week of the abbreviated five-game Wesco season brought some intriguing matchups.

Here’s a roundup of the local high school football games from Week 5, the final week of the abbreviated season:

Lake Stevens 63, Glacier Peak 35

SNOHOMISH — Lake Stevens is still the king of Snohomish County high school football.

Even in this abbreviated season, the Vikings weren’t about to surrender their spot atop the throne.

Jayden Limar scored five total touchdowns and Lake Stevens rattled off 28 straight fourth-quarter points to pull away for a 63-35 win over Glacier Peak in a season-finale showdown of unbeatens Thursday night at Veterans Memorial Stadium.

With the victory, the Vikings extended their win streak over Wesco 4A opponents to 46 games. Lake Stevens improved to 40-1 against Snohomish County teams over the last six seasons.

The action-packed contest was highlighted by a big-play duel between two of the area’s most dynamic playmakers.

Limar, a sophomore who already has Pac-12 offers from Utah and Oregon State, returned the game’s opening kickoff for a touchdown and added scoring runs of 21, 21, 58 and 18 yards for the Vikings (5-0). He finished with 164 yards from scrimmage, including 141 yards rushing on 16 carries.

On the other side was Glacier Peak running back Ryan Black, who rushed for 348 yards and three touchdowns on 32 carries. The standout senior broke long touchdown runs of 87, 67 and 49 yards.

Black’s first two touchdowns gave the Grizzlies a 21-14 lead in the opening minute of the second quarter. Glacier Peak (4-1) trailed by just seven points both at halftime and at the end of the third quarter. But the Vikings poured it on in the fourth, exploding for 28 straight points in a span of less than eight minutes to pull away.

Lake Stevens junior Drew Carter intercepted two passes on defense and had six catches for 86 yards and a touchdown. Senior receiver Gabe Ramsey added 147 yards from scrimmage and a touchdown reception for the Vikings, who scored 63 points on a Glacier Peak team that had allowed just 44 points combined in its previous four games.
