More high-school postseason sports today – both West Seattle HS and Chief Sealth International High School are in the volleyball tournament that continues starting at 11 am today at Sealth, and WSHS is at Memorial Stadium at 5 tonight for football.
Friday night, there was soccer, volleyball, and football. In soccer, Sealth lost to Seattle Prep, 4-0 (here are the stats, via WSB partner The Seattle Times). That game was played up north at Ingraham, as was WSHS vs. Holy Names – (update) a 5-1 loss for the Wildcats. In volleyball, Seattle Lutheran High School defeated Chief Leschi, 3-0 (Times game stats here).
At Memorial Stadium downtown, the Sealth football team faced Seattle Prep.
Final score: Prep 51, Sealth 8. Game notes ahead:
Covering the game downtown, WSB co-publisher Patrick Sand reports that the Seahawks picked up one penalty after another. All the scoring came in the first half.
Sealth’s Trey Brown brought in the Seahawks’ only touchdown. Early in the game, Sealth picked up a safety when the defense made Prep’s punter chase the ball into the end zone.
Meantime, despite the aforementioned losses, the Sealth Athletics Facebook page had a bright spot to cite:
While the football and soccer games might not have gone our way, let’s not forget about our girls swim team who had a great showing at today’s Metro Tourney. Led by Senior Kelsey Hastings, who also qualified for Districts in both her events, the team will also be sending two relay teams to Districts next week!
