High-school football: Seattle Lutheran homecoming heartbreaker

Just in from West Seattle Stadium: LaConner 23, Seattle Lutheran High School 20, in a hard-fought game, homecoming for the Saints.

ADDED: Game details:

From WSB co-publisher Patrick Sand:

Seattle Lutheran came up against LaConner’s no-huddle offense on Saturday afternoon but managed to keep it a close game until the fourth quarter when LaConner got a field goal to go up 23-20 for the win. All afternoon LaConner managed to key in on Lutheran’s main running back Tyrell Walker-Hampton, holding him to negative yardage on virtually all his carries. He did managed to escape the Braves’ defense for a 65-yard run for the second Lutheran touchdown of the game. The game was tied at 20 all at the end of the third quarter, but a series of short runs combined with a few Saints penalties left LaConner in possession of the ball for seven of minutes of the fourth quarter. The drive took up 18 plays and left the Saints without much time to work.

Seattle Lutheran’s other scores: Bryce Walker had a big 34-yard reception, and running back RJ Son ran the ball in from 62 yards out.
