76 (Kentlake) . . . plus . . . 55 (Puyallup) . . . equals new SPSL scoring record

Kentlake coach Chris Paulson had a blast calling Kentlake’s offensive plays Friday night in what went down as a historic showing in the South Puget Sound League.

But the linebacker in him, too, shuddered at what took place Friday night at French Field.

The defending SPSL North champion Falcons finally prevailed over Puyallup, 76-55.

The two teams combined for 131 points, which eclipsed the SPSL single-game scoring mark of 128, set by Rogers and Federal Way in 2003 (Rogers won, 66-62).

Kentlake quarterback Steffin Church tossed a school-record nine touchdown passes. Eight of the Falcons’ TDs were plays of 40 yards or longer.

Brandon Illies, the Puyallup quarterback, was no slouch either – throwing for five TDs, and running for a couple more.

“You feel like you are unstoppable offensively,” Paulson said. “But the same 11 kids defensively could not seem to stop anybody, either.”

Kentlake jumped out to a 35-14 lead after one quarter, and traded score for score with the Vikings after that.

The record-setting score came on Church’s 54-yard pass to Jordan Laurencio with 1:05 remaining in the game.
