From WSB co-publisher Patrick Sand:
Friday night’s game between Lutheran and Rainier Christian at West Seattle Stadium saw a little bit of everything, including a trick play that led to RC’s first touchdown of the year and only the third in the school’s history. Mustang sophomore Kyle Clark scored from mid-field on a double-fake running play with only a couple of minutes left in the first half. Despite that, Lutheran went on to win the game 57-7.
Rainier put together a respectable passing game, given quarterback Christian Buck‘s consistency. But the Mustangs had trouble advancing past the 50-yard line. On series after series, they found themselves giving the Saints decent field position.
On the night, Fred Lisko had four touchdowns including a 79-yard punt return. Very early on, the Saints’ quarterback, Trevor Forsell, ran the ball in for a touchdown.
Earlier Friday, Chief Sealth played Lakeside; Sealth took the game 21-14 after a 40-yard pass for a touchdown with about two minutes remaining in the game. Sealth was also the first to score:
