9:35 PM: In a downpour at Nino Cantu Southwest Athletic Complex tonight, West Seattle High School took back the Huling Bowl trophy with a 42-0 win over Chief Sealth International High School. The Seahawks had won the past four editions of the crosstown-rivalry game.

11:11 PM: WSHS’s tally included three 2-point conversions. The Wildcats were up 28-0 at halftime.

Despite the miserable playing conditions, the victory gave WSHS head coach Jeff Scott a reason to smile.

Game’s end was major photo-op time.

And though the game was devoid of pre-pandemic-style festivities, the traditional trophy hoist went on:

It was West Seattle’s first Huling Bowl win since 2016. The Wildcats are now 5-3 on the year; the Seahawks are 1-7.

    What a fun night! Props to the band and the cheerleaders, everyone looked and sounded so good! I’m so proud to have had both my sons be part of Coach Scott and the other coaches’ program.  Winning on the field is great but winning as young men is even better.  Go Wildcats!

    Without a true quarterback it was bound to be a long night for Chief Sealth. So unlucky to lose three quarterbacks to season ending injuries this year. Kudos to their defense for trying to pick up the slack. Congrats on the win, Wildcats!

Sorry, comment time is over.
