Skyline, EC look to keep rolling, Eastlake after complete effort | Prep football news

Can Eastlake get back on track after a blowout loss to Bothell? How do Skyline and Eastside Catholic continue to roll through their divisional schedules? The Reporter takes a look at this week's prep football games.

Bartel wants four quarter effort from Wolves

While the final score of last week’s 45-18 loss to Bothell was anything but pretty for Eastlake football fans, head coach Don Bartel is focused on the positives, especially with nearly an entire divisional slate left for his Wolves and the chance at a playoff berth a distinct possibility.

“That first half, they had nothing on us, and it was great,” he said of his team’s defensive effort. “The first half was a push.”

The fast and focused start on defense had to be encouraging in the wake of the previous week’s 21-0 halftime deficit to Skyline. But Bartel also knows if his team hopes to avoid more one-sided games like last week’s loss, it will take a more complete effort in all three phases of the game.

“If there is anything we can take away, it is to play the full four,” Bartel said. “It is creating guys that expect to win, instead of guys that hope to win.”

Spartans rolling as Crown slate continues

Skyline picked up its third straight win of the year, beating Roosevelt September 27 before facing Garfield this week after the Reporter’s deadline.

Senior quarterback Kilton Anderson tossed his first score of the year against the Roughriders and also found the end zone three times on the ground, while junior Chandler Wong added a rushing score.

Three players had a sack, including two from senior Josh Wright, and Alex Allen added an interception in the lopsided win.

Eastside Catholic (3-1, 1-0) VS. Seattle Prep (1-3, 0-1) @ West Seattle Stadium, Friday, 7 p.m.

EC meets one-win Panthers in second of three straight road games

The Crusaders handled Bainbridge 49-6 last week in the Metro League opener and are back on the road for second of three straight road games this week against Seattle Prep.

The Panthers were blanked 42-0 by O’Dea last week and enter the game with only one win, 50-13 over West Seattle.

Sophomore quarterback Harley Kirsch tossed two more scores and three players found the end zone on the ground, including 190 yards and two touchdowns from senior running back Henry Jarvis.

The EC defense will likely have another chance to post a dominant performance, facing a Prep offense that has scored only 14 points in its three losses, including a pair of shutouts. The Crusaders tallied two sacks, forced and recovered three fumbles in holding the Spartans to only six points.
