Falcons fall to Cougars 28-14

Bothell claims top Kingco spot
  
   An estimated 6,000 fans showed up at Pop Keeney Stadium last Friday night to watch Woodinville and Bothell play to determine which school would own first place in 4A Kingco play. Both were undefeated going into the game.
   The first quarter belonged to the Falcons as they scored two touchdowns on their first two drives. Nick Acker accounted for one TD on a two-yard run, Brady Galloway scored from the 8-yard line to put Woodinville ahead 14-0 racking up 178 yards in the first half.
   However, late in the second quarter, the Cougars came alive with an interception of a Michael-Ryan Pattison pass by Bothell's Rocky Jorgenson. With less than two minutes left in the half, Jorgenson hot-footed it 69 yards for the Cougars' first score of the game.
   While Woodinville dominated the first half of play, the second and third quarters belonged to Bothell with the Cougars scoring 28 unanswered points against the hapless Falcons who could not get their offensive game in gear.
   Bothell's so-called Blue Train, led by Sean Gallacher really got rolling in the third quarter as Gallacher scored on a 2-yard run. Bart Ward added another 2 yards and a touchdown to take over the lead a the quarter came to a close.
   Bothell's Glente Cummings secured the victory with a 43-yard touchdown in the 4th quarter, ending the scoring and Woodinville's hopes for an undefeated season and first place.
