Olympic League football roundup: March 8

Sequim 27, South Kitsap 15

The last time these two teams met, the year was 1962 and Jerry Redmond was at the helm of the program. Sequim came out on top in this long-dormant matchup for the first time since 1959. After a scoreless first quarter, Sequim opened up a 13-0 lead, but South Kitsap answered with a 34-yard touchdown pass from Rylen Bayne to Jacob Nelson. But Sequim’s defense didn’t allow much until the fourth quarter. South Kitsap scored on a late safety and then Bayne tossed his second touchdown of the game, a 12-yard pass to Jayden Armstrong in the dying seconds of the game. South Kitsap gained plenty of yards against Sequim. Devin Easley rushed for 119 yards on 19 carries, and Benjamin Miller added 94 yards on 14 carries. Rylen Bayne threw for 108 yards and two touchdowns, and Jacob Nelson led the team in receiving yards with 52 on three receptions.

It was another big day for the Knights, who are just rolling through their competition this season. Kelo Logova threw three TD passes, all to receiver Junior Newman. Logova also rushed for 95 yards and a score. Trent Lewis scored first for Bremerton on a 9-yard run, and the first of three Logova-Newman connections came just at the end of the first quarter to put the team up 14-0. By the time of Ahmir Paden’s 51-yard interception return, it was 41-0 and just before halftime, which triggered the running clock. Bremerton will host North Kitsap Saturday at 1 p.m.
