Edmonds-Woodway 33, Monroe 28

MONROE — Edmonds-Woodway High School football coach John Gradwohl’s only regret was that he hadn’t made Aaron Barraza a bigger focal point earlier.

In the Warriors’ first four games, the senior running back got limited carries. But on Friday night, he was their workhorse.

And he lifted Edmonds-Woodway to a key league victory.

Barraza ran for 197 yards and four touchdowns — including a pair of long, electrifying fourth-quarter scores — to lead the visiting Warriors to a 33-28 win over Monroe in a clash of Wesco 3A South contenders.
