BELLINGHAM — The Cougars (2-2, 1-1) bounced back in a big way with the victory over the Storm (1-2, 0-2). Lakewood was coming off a stunning 44-0 loss to Sedro-Woolley that knocked the Cougars out of the 2A state rankings. But facing a Squalicum team ranked No. 5 in the state in 2A, Lakewood pulled out a big victory that keeps the Cougars in the Northwest 2A race.

The Storm then got the ball back and drove inside the Lakewood 5-yard line, but time expired as Squalicum attempted to spike the ball to stop the clock.
Jackson 13, Shorewood 12
SHORELINE — The Timberwolves (2-2) have multiple victories in a season for the first time since 2018 after squeaking past the Thunderbirds (0-4). Shorewood scored a late touchdown and decided to go for the two-point conversion and the win, but Jackson prevented the conversion to hang on.
Everett 40, Cedarcrest 17
DUVALL — Jemyre Reed caught four passes for 146 yards and two touchdowns, and the Seagulls continue to thrive playing an independent schedule, improving to 3-1 with the victory over the Red Wolves (0-4). Juju Williams added 89 yards rushing on 23 carries and one score for Everett.

Murren finished with 323 yards passing, Carter caught nine passes for 175 yards and Jayden Limar had 108 yards rushing, 95 yards receiving and a touchdown for Lake Stevens.
Jelani Guerrero hauled in two long touchdown receptions from Colton Johnson for Archbishop Murphy. Guerrero finished with 133 yards receiving on four receptions.
Marysville Pilchuck 49, Glacier Peak 14
SNOHOMISH — What was billed as a battle of Titans instead turned into a blowout of epic proportions as the Tomahawks (4-0) hammered the Grizzlies (3-1).
Marysville Pilchuck came into the game ranked No. 7 in the state in 3A while Glacier Peak was ranked No. 7 in 4A. But the Tomahawks dominated from the opening kickoff, taking a 42-0 halftime lead and causing the second half to be played with a running clock.
Gaylan Gray scored three touchdowns for Marysville Pilchuck — two rushing and one on an interception — while Dylan Carson and Jordan Velasquez both added two TD runs. Trey Leckner scored both TDs on the ground for Glacier Peak.
