That was quite a Thursday night of high school football. Top-ranked Skyline stumbled, Federal Way’s Trenton Pinson set the SPSL single game record for touchdowns and the Narrows League solidified its postseason participants.
In a meeting of the top two ranked teams in Class 4A, No. 2 Bothell upended No. 1 Skyline, 25-20. The Cougars scored the go-ahead touchdown with 1 minute, 4 seconds left. The win gives Bothell KingCo’s No. 1 seed and the Spartans get the league’s No. 2 seed.
In SPSL North action, Trenton Pinson broke the league’s single-game touchdown record, scoring seven times in Federal Way’s 69-21 victory over Jefferson. The 6-foot, 185-pound senior scored on runs of 56, 1, 15, 9, 8, 5 and 4 yards, bringing his season total to 20 touchdowns. Pinson scored all of his touchdowns in the first half, as the Eagles led 42-0 at the end of the first quarter and 63-7 at halftime. He carried 13 times for 177 yards.
Pinson broke the previous record of five touchdowns in a game, which was held by 24 players.
In another SPSL North game, Kentridge beat Kent-Meridian 27-3. The Chargers and Federal Way have secured postseason berths, but they won’t know their opponent until Friday’s Kentwood-Kentlake game is final. If the Conks win, they’re No. 2, Kentridge is No. 3 and Federal Way is No. 4. If the Falcons win, Kentridge is No. 2, Federal Way is No. 3 and Kentwood is No. 4.
Auburn, of course, is the SPSL North No. 1 seed.
In the Narrows League, South Kitsap wrapped up an undefeated regular season with a 54-20 win over Mount Tahoma. Next week, the Wolves will host the No. 2 seed from the Greater St. Helens League. If both teams win next week, South Kitsap will host Skyline in the first round of the state playoffs.
Olympia ended Foss’ postseason hopes with a 17-7 win over the Falcons and Central Kitsap topped Wilson 37-20. The Bears receive the league’s No. 2 seed, while the Cougars and Rams are the three and four seeds. Gig Harbor thumped Shelton 49-6 and claimed the No. 4 seed. The Tides will host the No. 4 team from the SPSL North on Tuesday and the winner will move on to play at the GSHL champion.
No more projections, we can start filling in the Week 10 games for Class 4A with permanent ink. These games are listed how the teams are placed on the state bracket.
