Game Story: Vikings Set Record in Route at Jackson
Lake’s 91-6 win set school mark for points scored in a contest
Lake Stevens found plenty of ways to score against Jackson last Saturday afternoon at Everett Memorial Stadium, racking up a baker's dozen (13) touchdowns in a 91-6 rout. By halftime Lake had already matched what is believed to be its highest score ever, 77 points against Mt. Vernon a few seasons ago.
Six of the touchdowns came via the rush, three by the pass, two by interception returns, two by punt returns.
Lake led 42-0 after one quarter, 77-0 at the half, 84-0 after three, and it was 91-0 late in the game when Jackson broke the shutout with a long touchdown pass. Lake reserves had already been inserted before halftime.
Lake (2-0 in Wesco, 5-0 overall) hardly broke a sweat in dispatching the undermanned Timberwolves (0-2, 2-5). Operating at an almost leisurely pace the Vikings scored in this order:
Drew Carter's 3-yard pass from Grayson Murren.
Jayden Limar's 3-yard run (set up by Murren's 44-yard pass to Cole Becker.
Jayden Limar's 1-yard run (set up by Isaac Redford's 29-yard interception return).
Trace Hanks' 53-yard sweep run (with blocking convoy of Jayden Limar, Carter, and Murren).
Hanks' 61-yard punt return (Hanks also had one of Lake's four interceptions).
Colby Easterling's 15-yard interception return.
Jayshon Limar's 11-yard run (preceded by runs of 30 and 23 yards by his brother Jayden).
Carter's 19-yard pass from Murren.
Hanks' 57-yard punt return.
Carter's 64-yard pass from Murren.
Jayshon Limar's eight-yard run.
Jayshon Limar's one-yard run (he carried seven times for 65 yards in this 72-yard drive).
Jaxson Lewis' five-yard interception return.
Macray Flanders converted 13 of 13 PAT kicks.
Jackson's freshman quarterback Hawkeye Delgado gave his team something to cheer about in the running clock's final three minutes with consecutive completions of 20 and 57 yards to Joey Schneider, the latter for a touchdown. The Wolves' PAT kick try was fumbled and smothered by Lake's Jordon Olson and Bryce Waxham.
Murren completed an economical seven of nine passes (one interception) for 182 yards. Carter's three receptions (all for touchdowns) netted 86 yards. The Limar brothers combined for 186 yards and five touchdowns on 21 carries.
Lake hosts Kamiak this Friday in a key Wesco test.
PS----Correction to last week's Mariner article. I said that Lake scored eight touchdowns in eight possessions but in fact one of its possessions ended early in the game on a Murren interception. - MA
