FOOTBALL | South Kitsap prepares for Bellarmine Oct. 9

After a loss at Gig Harbor, the Wolves look ahead to facing Bellarmine on Oct. 9.

The wolves face off with Bellarmine Prep Oct. 9.

South Kitsap football fell to Gig Harbor 65-0 on Oct. 2. Although the final score was less than ideal, head coach Gavin Kralik said the team is looking forward to the next game.

“Gig Harbor is a really good football team,” Kralik said. “The game got out of hand really quickly, but we are looking forward to a fresh start and getting back home this week.”

South Kitsap faces Bellarmine Prep at home on Oct. 9. Bellarmine has only lost one game so far this season. They lost 28-34 to Gonzaga Prep in their second game.

“They’re balanced on offense,” Kralik said. “They have a really good receiver, running back and quarterback. They’re not a team that you can just kind of take away the run or the pass.”

Kralik said the team needs to be able to defend both of Bellarmine’s offensive weapons. On offense, the Wolves need to be aware of Bellarmine’s middle linebacker.

“We have to be aware of where he’s at,” Kralik said. “We have to be balanced on offense and defend well against their run and pass.”

Kickoff at South Kitsap begins at 7 p.m. Oct. 9.
