Stanwood beats Snohomish 16-6 for first victory

Herald staff

SNOHOMISH – Running has been the hallmark of Western Conference football for years. But Stanwood’s passing game was the difference as the Spartans downed Snohomish 16-6 Friday in front of a standing room only crowd at Snohomish Veterans Memorial Stadium.

Both Wesco North teams were equals on the ground. Each team rolled up 186 yards, led by the 96 yards on 14 carries by Stanwood’s Julian Bomar.

In the air, the Panthers were 1-for-4 for 23 yards. Stanwood (1-3 league, 1-3 overall), amassed 163 yards through the air. The 8-for-9 passing of Jake Herigstad was responsible for 154 of those yards. Snohomish (1-2, 1-3) was held to 1-for-4 and an interception in gaining 23 passing yards

Stanwood opened the scoring midway through the first quarter when Clancy Seymour picked up a fumble that ended the Panthers opening drive. Six plays later, Tyler Nicholas knocked through a 28-yard field goal giving the Spartans a 3-0 lead. That lead would hold through the first half.

In the third period, the Spartans put together a time consuming, nine-play, 62-yard drive that was capped off when Herigstad called his own number to go over from inside the 1-yard line putting Stanwood up 9-0.

In the final period, Snohomish quarterback Jeff Rodland had a pass intercepted by Brandon Murr. On the next play, Bomar raced 31 yards to stake the Spartans to a 16-0 lead.

Snohomish put points on the scoreboard late in the game when a Stanwood punt was called back on a penalty. On the replay of the down, Jacob Darling broke through to block the punt. The ball bounced into the hands of Kalani Book. Book romped 20 yards to the end zone. The Panther conversion attempt failed.

The loss keeps the Panthers uncharacteristically winless at home this season. The win was the first of the season for the visiting Spartans and their new head coach J.J. Hansen.
