Issaquah, Skyline, Eastlake win, Crusaders fall to Irish | Prep football news

Scores and highlights from Friday night's prep football games.

Issaquah handles Ballard

The Eagles wasted little time jumping on division foe Ballard, getting an interception and scoring 14 straight points on Jack Neary touchdown passes to take a lead it would not surrender in a 41-18 win.

With the win, Issaquah did its part to set up a division title game with Skyline next week.

Skyline held off Newport 34-17 behind touchdown runs from Rashaad Boddie and Chandler Wong, a pair of field goals and a Kilton Anderson touchdown pass, remaining unbeaten in Crown Division play in the process.

The defense held the Knights scoreless in the first and fourth quarters.

The Spartans travel to face Issaquah in the final regular season game of the year next Friday, with the winner taking the division title and spot in the 4A KingCo championship game.

Eastlake gets Homecoming win

The Wolves stepped out of conference play to host 3A Meadowdale for Homecoming and didn’t disappoint, dominating the Wesco Mavericks in a 48-27 win.

Quarterback Blue Thomas threw a pair of scores while the Lewis Twins got in the act on the ground, with Troy going for two touchdowns and 106 yards and Drew toting the rock for 40 yards and a score of his own on only five carries.

Eastlake, which led 41-0 at halftime, faces rival Redmond next week with playoff seeding on the line.

Crusaders can’t corral Gaskin in loss

Eastside Catholic was unable to get a hold of O’Dea junior running back Myles Gaskin in the Metro Mountain division showdown as the Irish avenged last year’s loss with a resounding 63-45 win that will likely keep the Crusaders from defending their conference title.

EC struck first to take a 7-0 lead, but Gaskin responded on the next drive with a score of his own and went 80 yards around the outside after the Crusaders again took the lead at 14-7 on a Harley Kirsch touchdown pass.

But it was the EC offense that blinked first and too much Gaskin in the end, as his five rushing touchdowns paced the Irish in the monster offensive effort.

The Crusaders finish the regular season next week against Blanchet.
