Highlights of the local high school football action as the season nears the finish line.

Here’s a roundup of the local high school football games from Friday, March 26:

Lake Stevens 43, Marysville Pilchuck 36

LAKE STEVENS — Marysville Pilchuck continues to be a thorn in the side of Lake Stevens. But this time the Vikings were up to the challenge.

After a Dylan Carson 3-yard touchdown run tied the game at 29-29 in the fourth quarter, Trayce Hanks took the ensuing kickoff back 87 yards for a touchdown as Lake Stevens held on for the win to remain undefeated.

Jayden Limar added a 52-yard touchdown run in the fourth quarter, his third score of the game, as the Vikings gained some breathing room, 43-29.

Carson answered with another short touchdown run, but an onside kick attempt by Marysville Pilchuck failed and Lake Stevens ran out the clock.

Tanner Jellison threw two touchdown and finished with 202 yards passing for the Vikings (4-0). Limar had 131 yards on the ground.

Carson scored three touchdowns and had 142 yards rushing for the Tomahawks (2-2), whose two losses have come to undefeated 4A teams Glacier Peak and Lake Stevens.

SNOHOMISH — Ryan Black scored five total touchdowns, three over 50 yards, and Glacier Peak routed former 4A rival Monroe to stay undefeated.

Lakewood 32, Archbishop Murphy 21

ARLINGTON — In a normal year, Lakewood would’ve been eyeing another deep postseason run. But with no playoffs during this abbreviated spring season, the Cougars won’t get that chance.

That hasn’t stopped them from making a statement, though.

The unbeaten Cougars erased an early 15-point deficit and continued their success-filled spring with a 32-21 win over visiting Archbishop Murphy on Friday night in a showdown between a pair of league rivals that reached the Class 2A state quarterfinals last season.

“I think this is a championship-caliber team,” said Lakewood coach Dan Teeter, whose Cougars came oh-so-close to earning their program’s second-ever state semifinal berth last season. “I think we could’ve made a good run this year. It’s just a shame we didn’t get that opportunity. But I think they proved it tonight.”

Lakewood (4-0) had a big night on special teams. Carson Chrisman returned a kickoff to the 2-yard line to set up the Cougars’ first touchdown and Shae Dixon returned a punt 51 yards for their second score.

Quarterback Justice Taylor added 144 yards rushing and two touchdowns for Lakewood, which rattled off 30 consecutive points after falling into an early 15-0 hole.

Kai Lewis threw a pair of long touchdown passes on Archbishop Murphy’s first two possessions. But the Wildcats (1-3) struggled to move the ball for the rest of the night against a Lakewood defense that allowed just 210 total yards.

Edmonds-Woodway 56, Lynnwood 7

EDMONDS — Steele Swinton rushed for four touchdowns and Edmonds-Woodway converted four second-half turnovers into 35 points in a big win over Lynnwood to stay undefeated.

Up 21-7 at half, Edmonds-Woodway capped its opening possession of the second half with a 4-yard touchdown run from Swinton.

Then things really started to unravel for the Royals.

Lynnwood turned the ball over on its next four possession, including two fumbled hand-offs, a fumbled kick return and an interception by Edmonds-Woodway’s Charlie Finch.

Swinton finished with 102 yards rushing and Ryan Fahey added 126 yards on the ground for the Warriors (4-0).

Lynnwood got an early touchdown on an 8-yard pass from Julius Heudorf to Shawn Monon, but fell to 1-3.

Snohomish 44, Arlington 14

ARLINGTON — Silas Strehle threw two touchdowns to Makai Williams in the second quarter as Snohomish stormed back from an early 14-point deficit and cruised to a win over Arlington.

The Eagles raced out to an early lead on an interception return for touchdown by Levi Younger and a touchdown pass from Michael Tsoukalas to Ryan Gese.

But the Panthers were not going to go quietly.

Strehle found Williams twice for touchdowns in the second quarter, Kale Hammer hit a 35-yard field goal and Caden Keithley ran for a 1-yard score as Snohomish rallied for a 23-14 halftime lead.

Trey Leckner caught a touchdown from Strehle and also returned an interception for a score as Snohomish (2-2) pulled away in the second half.

Younger added four catches for 85 yards for Arlington (1-3).

Cascade 16, Marysville Getchell 13

MARYSVILLE — Cascade remained undefeated on the season, but not in its usual fashion.

Cascade (4-0) entered the game having scored 40 or more points in each of its first three wins. The Bruins’ defense stepped up to keep the team undefeated.

Michael Purl’s 17-yard touchdown run in the fourth quarter proved to be the winning score and Francisco Beltran connected with Michael Doran for a 53-yard touchdown to put Cascade up 10-7 in the second quarter.

Purl finished the game with 14 carries for 55 yards and a score and Doran had 76 yards from scrimmage on eight touches.

The Chargers (1-3) took an early lead when Landyn Olson scored on a 5-yard run to make 7-3 in the first quarter and Cameron Hazelwood hit a pair of field goals, including a 33-yard attempt in the third quarter that put Marysville Getchell up 13-10.

Kamiak at Stanwood, canceled

STANWOOD — Friday night’s scheduled high school football game between Kamiak and Stanwood was canceled just hours before kickoff.

In a statement on its website, Stanwood High School said the game was called off, as well as a girls junior varsity soccer game and a girls varsity soccer game on Thursday, “due to multiple non-school district functions over the past week in the community … (the games were canceled) related to covid exposure.”

Stanwood (1-2) is currently scheduled to travel to Marysville Pilchuck in the season finale on Thursday.

Kamiak (3-0) is scheduled to host Cascade on the same night.
