The scene at Pop Keeney was touted as a showdown. Powerhouse Woodinville versus the upstart Inglemoor Vikings. Two teams tied for first place in Kingco’s Crown Division. Jayda Evans of the Seattle Times even chimed in earlier in the week, touting Inglemoor’s strides into the Kingco elite.
But all the ballyhoo crumbled with the opening kickoff. Just twelve seconds into the game, Woodinville’s Cage Schenck raced 95 yards for a touchdown. The Falcons never looked back, in route to a 42-0 win that clinched the Kingco 4A Crown Division.
Every year there’s a Falcon whose intensity radiates from the field. Two years ago it was defensive end Jake Kim. Last year, it was defensive end Jake Baillie.
This year’s entry is defensive tackle Dylan Lewis. The 6’3” 230-pound senior exudes ferocity. He constantly collapses the pocket and engulfs ball carriers. Through seven games, he has 3.5 sacks and 12 tackles for loss.
Woodinville's Luke Houser set a course record of 14:57 at the Nike Hole in the Wall Invite on October 6th. He is now ranked 1st in Kingco 4A, 1st in the 4A Division as well as 1st overall in Washington State. (Courtesy photo)

As Bothell’s final pass fell incomplete, Pop Keeney Stadium was the scene of pure joy. Falcon players jumped on each other and shouted. The Falcon Marching Band kicked into high gear. And a KOMO-TV cameraman was quickly in the face of Woodinville coach Wayne Maxwell, who fielded questions from reporters.
To the victors go the spoils. And the victors from last Friday’s showdown were the Woodinville Falcons. Paced by a powerful rushing attack and a stout defense, Woodinville beat Bothell 17-10. It marked the fourth straight year that the Falcons have conquered the Cougars.
