The Inglemoor Vikings football team (0-3) fell just short of their first win in 2012 with a 31-28 road loss to Tumwater on Friday night.
In the second quarter, quarterback Hans Fortune hit wide receiver Mike Lewis for a 10-yard touchdown to give the Vikings a 14-10 lead going into halftime, and after Tumwater scored to take 17-14 lead, Viking running back Nick Russell broke away for a 29-yard score to give the Vikings a momentary lead.
In the fourth quarter, Fortune ran in a 1-yard touchdown himself, but Inglemoor was done in by a Tumwater punt return that went nearly the entire length of the field with five minutes to go in the fourth quarter.
The Vikings get their league schedule underway this Friday against Woodinville at Pop Keeney, kickoff at 7 p.m.
The Bothell Cougars also started the season 0-3 after a 27-11 loss to Capital in Olympia last Friday. The Cougars look to turn the tide against Eastlake (1-2) on Saturday at Pop Keeney, kickoff at 7 p.m.
