Another spirited game closed out the high-school-football weekend in West Seattle – Seattle Lutheran High School was ahead much of the way but ended up losing to Orcas Island in their Saturday afternoon game at WS Stadium, 27-19. More photos and toplines ahead:
Lutheran’s Jake Lamb had a big day on both sides of the ball, with a 95-yard run for a touchdown and an interception that stopped and Orcas Island drive just short of the end zone, but a very steady Viking running game led them to a productive second half and the 27-19 win.
Lutheran had a big first half, controlling the clock with an effective ground game that held Orcas Island to two field goals. The turning point came at the start of the third quarter, when Orcas recovered a wild fumble that passed through the hands of players on both teams. The Vikings scored shortly thereafter and the Saints managed to get ahead on their next drive. Viking senior running back Jake Zier did most of the work in the second half that led to three Orcas Island touchdowns late in the game.
