Inspiring moment as Vikings and Bullpups pray together after Lake Stevens prevailed 35-14 in a hard fought 4A State Quarterfinal battle:
Halftime stats: Pups’ McKenna has 23 rushes (!!!!!) for 132, 2td. Gray Murren is 10/15 for 169. Jayden Limar has 8 for 66 & 2td.
It’s 21-14 at halftime. Bullpups get the ball to start the second half. Vikings have forced two turnovers (but did not convert either into points) and the Bullpups have soaked up time and ran the ball well.
The Vikings welcome Gonzaga Prep at 4pm. Our Game Preview is here. Check back at 3:30 pm for live coverage from the sidelines at LS Stadium. As always, play by play will be in the comments below, video highlights pasted above.
The Vikes rip off 28 unanswered to win going away. Vikings bleeding the clock now.
it looked threatening for Lake when they trailed 14-7…but it seems Prep’s attack is too one dimensional for this level. 0/2 passing with two interceptions and their QB carried the ball 45 times.
The Vikings will play undefeated Eastlake on Nov. 27, probably at Pop Keeney Stadium in Bothell. Eastlake is a #2 seed but was ranked one slot behind the Vikings in the Ap Poll.
Kolton Matson in at QB and Jayshon Limar in at RB for the Vikings. That’s a Cavelero Mid High backfield- two true freshman.
