Results from postseason play in two sports on Saturday:
VOLLEYBALL: Busy day for local teams in tournament play at Chief Sealth International High School. First, West Seattle High School lost at 11 am to Seattle Prep, 3-0 , then faced Sealth at 1 pm – that ended with the Seahawks winning, 3-0. WSHS subsequently won over Lakeside at 3 pm, 3-1, while Sealth went on to play Eastside Catholic at 5 pm, falling 3-0. (Added Sunday morning – per the Sealth Athletics Facebook page, the Seahawks “will be back in action next Thursday (5:30 pm) at Sammamish HS vs. Bellevue in the 1st round of the District II tournament.”)
FOOTBALL: WSHS lost to Bainbridge at Memorial Stadium on Saturday night, 47-20.
(WSHS senior Brennan Newquist scoring one of the Wildcats’ first two TDs)
From WSB co-publisher Patrick Sand, who covered the game downtown:
Bainbridge had a productive first half, scoring on four out of their first five possessions. West Seattle answered back with two touchdowns in the first half, but it never got close. The Wildcats’ first two touchdowns were scored by seniors DiAndre Jackson and Brennan Newquist. With less than a minute to go, another Wildcat senior, Joe Ylagan, caught a pass and ran in for the score.
Bainbridge had key interceptions that pretty much stalled all of West Seattle’s second half drives.
West Seattle went to a ground game in the second half when the rain picked up. That proved to be successful and led to their last touchdown.
