ORIGINAL 7:21 PM REPORT (FOOTBALL): The final from Memorial Stadium downtown: West Seattle High School 46, Cleveland 0, second straight shutout for the Wildcats. More to come. (You can read some of the highlights in the stream from our live tweets – @wsblive.)
ADDED 9:54 PM: From co-publisher Patrick, who covered the game: The Thursday night edition of Wildcat football saw West Seattle defeat Cleveland, 46-0. The West Seattle High defense was the standout on the night. Cleveland was held to only one first down in the first half, and their best drive stalled on the 31. The Wildcats also forced several turnovers, including a blocked punt that was recovered by senior Emmet Holte. After the game, coach Davis Lura talked about Emmet and the play of the special teams.
The Wildcats are now 5-1 (4-0 in conference play). As for West Seattle’s other two high school varsity football teams: Chief Sealth travels to Clatskanie, OR, for a game at 3 pm Saturday, while Seattle Lutheran has this week off.
GIRLS’ SOCCER: Thanks to Sandy for the report: WSHS 3-0 over Sealth in girls’ soccer today.
