Non-conference slate concludes with Sammamish showdown | Prep football news

Eastlake and Skyline meet for the first time since 2011 while Issaquah and Eastside Catholic are also hoping to put a final stamp on the non-conference slate.

Eastlake (2-0) @ Skyline (1-1), Friday, 7 p.m.

The Wolves held off Eastside Catholic 27-21 last week behind an offense that looks poised to be one of the conference’s most productive in 2013.

Skyline bounced back from its opening season loss to Bellevue and picked up its first win of the year, beating Coeur d’Alene 38-23 in Idaho.

The Spartans already have four players who have scored a rushing touchdown on the year, with quarterback Kilton Anderson leading the way with three. In a decided shift from recent years, Skyline has yet to complete a touchdown pass on the young season and Anderson has thrown for 234 yards through two games.

The game will be broadcast live by Pioneer Sports on KNNW Alternative Talk 1150 AM.

Issaquah (1-1) VS. O’Dea (2-0), Friday, 7 p.m.

The Eagles nearly came away with a comeback win over Mount Si last week before ultimately being undone by turnovers in a 28-20 Wildcats win.

O’Dea, a perennial 3A state power and a team Issaquah defeated 33-30 last season, awaits off a pair of blowout wins over Gig Harbor and Ballard.

The Irish have allowed 14 points combined in the first two games of the year and also boast a talented junior running back in Myles Gaskin, a First Team All Metro selection as a sophomore.

Eastside Catholic (1-1) VS. Lake City, Idaho (2-1), Friday, 7 p.m.

The Crusaders suffered their first regular season loss since the 2011 season last Friday against the Wolves and welcome in Lake City for the first of a home and home series over the next two years.

Eastlake kept potent dual-threat quarterback Harley Kirsch under wraps last week, holding the sophomore to only 181 yards passing and no touchdowns on 11 of 18 passing and keeping his rushing total in negative numbers.

Lake City lost its opener 63-41 before beating its next two opponents, including Kennewick, by a combined score of 82-30.
