Searching for their first win of the 2012 campaign, the Cougars came through with 27 big first-half points in a 33-6 victory over Eastlake at Pop Keeney Stadium Saturday night in their league opener.
Tailback Danny Wilson ran wild for Bothell, reaching the end zone on a 58-yard run to open up the scoring for the Cougars, and also ran in touchdowns of four and nine yards.
Sophomore quarterback Ross Bowers also got it done in the air, hitting receivers Aaron Wilks for a 19-yard touchdown and Derek Pedersen for a 5-yarder in the second quarter.
The Cougars, who had given up over 31 points per game in their three season-opening losses, didn't give the Wolves any openings to make productive drives after the first quarter.
With the win, Bothell improved to 1-3 overall. The Cougars play Redmond (1-3) this Friday at Redmond High at 7 p.m.
Inglemoor drops league opener to Woodinville
Playing in their 4A Kingco league opener, the Viking football squad fell behind early and couldn't catch Woodinville a 34-14 loss at Pop Keeney Stadium last Friday.

From then on, it was all Woodinville, as the Falcons scored 20 unanswered points in the second quarter and one more touchdown in the fourth quarter to put the game away.
In the fourth, Russell ran in another score from eight yards.
The loss dropped Inglemoor to 0-4 on the season. The Vikings will search for their first win this Friday night against Eastlake (1-3) on the Wolves' home turf, kickoff at 7 p.m.
