Behind a stingy defense and efficient offense, Eastlake defeated rival Redmond 29-0 Friday night on the Plateau.

The Wolves received two TDs from senior running back Kyle Lappano. He scored on runs of 6 and 32 yards, finishing with 215 yards on 28 carries. Lappano was just one yard shy of tying the school record set last season by Cameron Hunt. The senior now leads KingCo in rushing with 638 yards in four games.

Colton Teglovic added a 23-yard fumble return for a TD, while kicker John Kilburg connected on three field goals. He knocked in one from 26 yards, another from 46 and his longest from 47 — just one yard shy of tying the school record.

Eastlake improved to 3-1 overall with the victory.

The Wolves travel to Newport (3-1) next week for a matchup of huge significance in the KingCo Crest playoff picture.

Eastside Catholic edged by Seattle Prep

Eastside Catholic had the lead at halftime, but couldn’t hang on against Seattle Prep Friday, losing 14-8.

Running back Chevy Walker gave the Crusaders the initial lead, scoring on a 38-yard run in the second quarter. A missed point after touchdown left Eastside with a 6-0 halftime advantage.

Seattle Prep quarterback, turned running back, Nick Holt came up big in the third quarter. He rushed in two scores from 49 and 3 yards.

The Crusaders earned a safety late in the game, but that was all they could muster.

Walker ended the game with seven carries for 92 yards, and Rob Granfelt had seven for 36. Eastside quarterback Trey Reynolds connected on eight of 28 passes for 61 yards, with an interception.

The Crusaders fell to 0-1 in the Metro League and are now 3-1 overall.
