FOOTBALL: West Seattle High School’s one-point loss to Ingraham

(WSB photos by Patrick Sand)

Continuing our coverage of home football games at Nino Cantu Southwest Athletic ComplexWest Seattle High School lost a close one Friday night, 11-10, to Ingraham. The game was relatively tepid – and scoreless – until late in the first half, when the Rams got a field goal. Not long thereafter, a fit over a call led Ingraham’s head coach to get ejected. Then the Wildcats got a field goal with :20 to halftime. It was a busy night for #20, sophomore kicker Kalei Scott:

So it was a 3-3 tie at halftime. The WSHS Band put on an impressive show during the break:

Back to the football: The third quarter, like the first quarter, was scoreless. Then things got lively in the final minutes of the game. #6, senior Jaxton Helmstetler, scored the first touchdown at 3:29:

Two minutes later, an Ingraham TD was followed by a 2-point conversion, giving the Rams the edge, 11-10. In the final half-minute, West Seattle got close but couldn’t get the ball in, so they tried a field goal and missed. Their chances, and the clock, ran out, and the Wildcats got the loss. Next Friday at 7:45 pm, they’re scheduled to face Roosevelt at Memorial Stadium downtown.

    Great game! the players are really doing great this season and had some impressive plays last night! The band was certainly a highlight as well. The coaches in the refs faces at the end was not impressive. A loss is hard no matter what.

    They didn’t play well enough to win. The refs were actually right, even if it didn’t feel like it at the time.

Sorry, comment time is over.
