O’Dea just gave Bellevue coach Butch Goncharoff his first loss in the Tacoma Dome. The Irish defeated the defending Class 3A champions 27-17.

Bellevue, which had won 10 straight games in the Tacoma Dome, had a last gasp when it recovered a fumble on its own 1-yard line with 2 minutes, trailing 20-17 with 30 seconds left in the game. But the Wolverines threw four straight incomplete passes.

O’Dea took over and backup quarterback Williams Aksnes-Shanks scored on a sneak, atoning for the fumble on the previous possession. The Irish had trouble hanging onto the fumble, coughing it up four times.

O’Dea will face the winner of Saturday’s Skyline-Franklin Pierce semifinal.

Up next: Royal vs. Cascade Christian.
