After falling behind 14-0 in the first quarter, the Spartans (3-4, 3-3) twice cut Ferndale’s lead to seven points in the second on TD runs by Ryder Bumgarner. But the Golden Eagles answered back both times and eventually scored 27 unanswered points before Stanwood scored two TDs in the fourth.

But after Friday night, there may be a new one at the top of the list.
The Eagles (6-1, 5-1 Wesco 3A North) shut down Marysville Pilchuck’s high-powered rushing attack and stunned the Class 3A third-ranked Tomahawks (6-1, 4-1) with a 28-14 victory in a pivotal Wesco 3A North showdown at Arlington High School.
