It’s easy to forget about Federal Way’s defense.
Credit that to the Eagles offense, which has turned every game this season into a track meet, consistently piling up yards and averaging a gaudy 51 points per contest while running roughshod through every defense they’ve lined up against.
When something’s that productive it tends to overshadowed everything else on the field.
A warning to future opponents, however: Don’t sleep on Federal Way’s defense. It’s equally impressive.
The second-ranked Eagles got an interception return for a touchdown from Keenan Curran and another pick from D’Londo Tucker in the end zone to halt a score as Federal Way remained undefeated by hammering visiting Spanaway Lake, 42-13, in South Puget Sound South Division play Thursday at Memorial Stadium.
“Our defense gave us great field position in the first half and that was key,” Federal Way coach John Meagher said. “We knew Spanaway Lake was one of the top rushing teams in the league and I thought we did a great job against them tonight.”
Chico McClatcher continued to shine during his sophomore campaign for the Eagles, rushing for 150 yards on nine carries with two scores, and hauling in a 78-yard TD pass from Evan Elliott in the closing seconds of the first half.
