The Woodinville Falcons made seven touchdowns and beat Lake Washington last Friday night 49-0. Undefeated, the team has now racked up their seventh consecutive win this season (12 straight overall) with 168 offensive points.
Woodinville started the scoring after a 35-yard by Pat Conniff and a 14-yard run by Ryan Prentice on a Marques Tuiasosopo option keeper. Then Curtis Cruz's kick made it 7-0 with 2 minutes 38 seconds left in the first period. Woodinville stopped a Lake Washington scoring drive as lineman Travis Wilson blocked a pass and Brian Kertson sacked the Lake Washington quarterback.
The Falcon's second score came just seconds into the second quarter. Following a 40-yard run by Prentice, it was 1st and 10 at the Lake Washington 25. Quarterback Tuiasosopo threw the first of his two touchdown passes to Rodney Anderson who was deep in the corner of the end zone. Kurt Ahlstrand's kick made it 14-0 with 11 minutes 58 seconds left in the quarter.
The following kickoff resulted in Woodinville jarring the ball loose and the Falcons recovering on the 5-yard line. Ryan Prentice took the ball in and with the Cruz kick, the score was 21-0.
Halftime stats had Woodinville with 131 yards (106 on the ground, 25 in the air) to Lake Washington's 119.
In the 3rd quarter, Woodinville took off for 21 points with runs of 1 yard by Tuiasosopo and 27 yards by Prentice, and a touchdown pass between the two.
Woodinville's final score was from Aaron Hineline in for Pat Conniff on a 3-yard run. Jeremy Tagger, Eric Arenson, Joshua Tobin, and Derek Peterson each had one recovery apiece for the Falcons. Linebackers Brigham Tomco and Joshua Tobin were in on 15 and 10 tackles, respectively.
In the 2nd half, Woodinville gained 170 yards, holding Lake Washington to just 9 total yards.
Woodinville is now ranked second in the state. At 4-0 in the Crown Division, they must face the 3-1 Juanita in conference play. The winner will have the inside track to a conference playoff spot. If either team wins its next two games, they would be assured a berth.
"The team is coming together as one. We are not just thinking offense now, we are concentrating on our defense. On goal line stands, we talk about not letting the other teams score," said Brigham Tomco, captain.
"I was impressed by our line play. The defense gave us a short field all night and the offense took care of business. We only had to punt once," said head coach Terry Agnew.
The Falcons will play Juanita next Saturday, November 2, at 7:30 p.m.
