Wyatt Smith scored on an 11-yard run in overtime and Alek Kacmarcik came up with a game-sealing

interception as Woodinville defeated Lakes 31-24 at Harry Land Stadium in Lakewood Friday.

Smith, a junior, rushed for 159 yards on 18 carries and scored two touchdowns in his first varsity start.

Woodinville picked off five Lancer passes: three by Caleb Hamilton including one returned 47 yards for a

touchdown. Dane Hawkins had the other pick.

Junior Will Jack started at quarterback for Hamilton, who was still nursing a broken hand, and completed

eight of 20 passes for 73 yards with two interceptions.

Lakes took a 24-21 lead with nine minutes remaining but the Falcons' Connor Zaback kicked a clutch 39-

yard field goal with a minute remaining in regulation to tie it up.

Woodinville enjoyed good field position all night, returning four kickoffs for a combined 165 yards.

Parker Moore and Lee Wunderlich led the Falcons with seven solo tackles apiece.

Woodinville plays at Mariner High School this Friday.
