Tonight’s high-school football: WSHS wins, Sealth heartbreaker

We report them first on Twitter and Facebook while we’re out at the games, if you just HAVE to know ASAP. Now both games are over and we’re processing our reports – but first making note of the scores here too: West Seattle High School 55, Ingraham 0 at SW Athletic Complex in Westwood; Nathan Hale 20, Chief Sealth High School 12 (but it was close for much of the game) at NE Athletic Complex (next to Hale). Details and video coming up.

10:44 PM: First, from Patrick on the WSHS game (which he tweeted live at @wsblive): Despite steady drizzle, West Seattle managed to keep their footing to defeat Ingraham 55-0. The standout performance of the night came from Markeem Adams, who carried the ball only five times but managed to score four touchdowns. He ended the night with 157 yards. Overall, the Wildcats had 570 yards of total offense. After the game, Coach Davis Lura talked about what he saw tonight as he gets ready for next week’s game against Cleveland:

The Wildcats are now 4-1 (3-0 in conference play). Here’s their schedule/stats/record page at (WSB partner).

ADDED 12:30 AM: From Tracy on the Sealth game: The score was close much of the way. We got there as the Seahawks embarked on a drive that got them within one point of the Raiders – here’s our Flip-cam view of the touchdown that made the score 13-12:

The conversion attempt after the TD failed, and Hale’s next drive got them a TD and PA, which resulted in the final score, 20-12. Sealth (stats etc. from here) plays Franklin next Friday (on Oct. 16); still one more high-school game for West Seattle players this weekend – Seattle Lutheran High School‘s homecoming game, 1:30 pm tomorrow at West Seattle Stadium vs. Friday harbor.

    Do they shoot off fireworks at the game when they win? At about 10:30-11pm last night ( fri) i was surprised to hear a loud blast of fireworks! ( i live in the alaska junction neighborhood) wondering if it was football related?

    Sealth’s next game vs Franklin is actually Oct 16, not next Friday (no school next Friday).

    Thanks, AHD, have amended and also linked the schedule to the phrase “Oct. 16.” Stuart – that wasn’t at the WSHS game (which was at SW Athletic Complex east of SW Community Center, a few miles south of The Junction) but Seattle Prep had its homecoming game at WS Stadium, much nearer to The Junction. Or might have been some other kind of celebration – I was driving through The Junction just before 10 pm when I saw a spotlight doing tight circles in the sky from just east of The Junction – circumstances at the time prevented me from detouring to go look for its source – it was definitely a ground-to-sky spotlight of some kind – TR

    I saw the spotlight too, from my vantage point on the west side of the Thriftway block.


    With the bit of cloud cover last evening, it looked like a spotlight swirling from above the clouds, and not appearing to pierce the clouds. I’ve noticed the same phenomenon, if it can be called that, in the past.


    Kinda eerie! :o
