Eastlake edges Bothell, 14-13 | Prep Football

Eastlake High edged Bothell High, 14-13, in 4A KingCo football action last Saturday night at Pop Keeney Stadium.

Bothell opened the scoring in the first quarter on a Christian Galvan 98-yard kickoff return. Eastlake answered with a touchdown in the second quarter and took a 14-7 lead in the fourth quarter. Also in the fourth, Riley Morrison scored on a 38-yard pass from Jacob Sirmon, but Bothell missed the PAT.

Sirmon was 18-for-43 passing for 207 yards, one TD and two interceptions, Da’ Vicious Wilson caught seven passes for 78 yards, Morrison snagged three passes for 53 yards and Ryder Locknane hauled in three passes for 23 yards.

Defensively for Bothell, Mason Locknane had six tackles.

Bothell head coach Tom Bainter said it was a frustrating loss because the Cougars lacked the emotion and drive that was present in the team’s arsenal during the previous weeks’ wins over JK Mullen and Skyline.

“Definitely took a step backwards,” he said.

Moving forward the remainder of the season, Bainter added, “We need to be all in and worry about who we are. We need to turn our weaknesses into strengths.”

Bothell (2-2 league, 3-2 overall) will next play North Creek (0-3 league, 1-3 overall) at 7 p.m. this Saturday at Pop Keeney Stadium.

Inglemoor (1-3 league, 1-4 overall) will take on Woodinville (4-0 league, 5-0 overall) at 7 p.m. this Friday at Pop Keeney.

Cedar Park Christian (0-2 league, 2-3 overall) will travel to King’s (1-1 league, 2-3 overall) for a 1A Cascade matchup at 7 p.m. this Friday.

In last Friday night’s football action, Newport beat Inglemoor, 36-7, Skyline beat North Creek, 41-0, and Bremerton beat Cedar Park Christian 37-0.

For Inglemoor, Cole Kindschi scored on a 5-yard run and Braden Dick tacked on the PAT.

Quarterback Zach Shimek was 10-for-18 passing for 127 yards, Kindschi caught five passes for 50 yards, Luke Millman snagged three passes for 66 yards and Trevor Thurman had nine tackles and three assists.

For Cedar Park, Zach Wilkins ran the ball 16 times for 60 yards, Payton Nelson had four tackles and three assists, Zach Shimmin had four tackles and two assists and Ty Shimmin had two tackles and seven assists.
