Falcons' Franklin sparks win over Franklin
by Russ Paris
Saturday night was homecoming for the Falcons against the Franklin Earthquakes, and the overflow crowd at Pop Keeney was not disappointed as Woodinville's Jamie Franklin raced for 59 yards from his own 41 to score on the second play of the game.
Five plays later Franklin race 49 yards for the Falcons' second touchdown. In all, he struck for 137 yards on six carries and scored two TDs.
Quarterback Mike Wagner scored two touchdowns with five carries for 65 yards. Aaron Hineline with13 carries for 112 yards and Josh Sterns with four carries for 22 yards each scored one to put the Falcons up 35-0 at the half.
Going into the third, Woodinville went to the air with Kyle McComb going over the middle to catch a pass and then scoring on a 27 yard pass play from Chris Billmaier.
Special mention goes to the Woodinville defense which shut down the Earthquakes. The Falcons were tenacious. Even as their offense ran up 431 total yards (393 rushing, 38 passing), they hit hard limiting their opponents to 172 yards. They recovered five fumbles and made two interceptions. Josh Stearns recovered two of the fumbles while Zach Woodward and Blake McIntosh each had an interception.
With the 49-0 win over Franklin, the Falcons are now 5-1 for the season.
In other Northshore action, Eastlake High scored 29 unanswered points in the second period to defeat Bothell 36 to 10 last Friday night. The Cougars were the first to score with a 15-yard run by Derek Carlile. Then Brand Lillian added a 41-yard field goal to complete Bothell's scoring for the night.
Inglemoor lost a heartbreaker to Juanita, 17-13. The Rebels drove 85 yards in five minutes and scored with just seconds remaining to defeat the Vikings. The loss dropped Inglemoor to 2-4.
