A look back at a wild weekend in Kitsap County.

Central Kitsap 13, Peninsula 0 (Oct. 12)

The Cougars completely shut down a top South Sound Conference team in a Thursday night game at Silverdale Stadium. Darickus Welborne came up with a 72-yard interception return for a touchdown that gave Central Kitsap some cushion on the scoreboard in the third quarter. Quarterback Angel Davila also threw an 18-yard touchdown pass to Caleb Wood to open the scoring in the first half. After a let down against Gig Harbor, the win over Peninsula boosted the Central Kitsap’s shot a playoff berth.

Up next: Central Kitsap (3-2, 4-3) at Shelton (0-4, 0-6) at 7 p.m., Oct. 20.

Klahowya 7, Port Townsend 6

It was defense, defense and more defense for the Eagles, holding a talented Port Townsend offense to just six points in a win that keeps Klahowya’s playoff hopes alive. Junior Andrew Dickson returned an interception 99 yards on the Redhawks’ first drive, and that was all the offense the Eagles would need.

Up next: Klahowya (2-2, 2-5) at Coupeville (1-3, 3-4) at 6 p.m., Oct. 20.

North Kitsap 54, Kingston 0

Dax Solis scored three touchdowns, two on the ground and one in the air, and rushed for 76 yards as the Vikings routed rival Kingston. Nathan Simms added a 37-yard rushing touchdown and a 28-yard receiving touchdown on a pass from quarterback Keenan Kukuda. The Vikings led 41-0 at halftime.

Up next: North Kitsap (5-0, 7-0) at North Mason (1-3, 4-3) at 7 p.m., Oct. 20.; Bremerton (3-1, 6-1) at Kingston (0-4, 0-7) at 7 p.m., Oct. 20.

Bremerton 42, Port Angeles 13

Sema’J Cook rushed for 157 yards and one touchdown as the Knights rebounded from a loss last week against North Kitsap to defeat Port Angeles. Brock Criss added two touchdowns and 56 yards on six carries in helping the Bremerton offense get back on track. The Knights scored twice in each quarter of the first half, rolling up a 28-7 lead by halftime.

Up next: Bremerton (3-1, 6-1) at Kingston (0-4, 0-7) at 7 p.m., Oct. 20.

Sequim 31, Olympic 18

A 14-yard rushing touchdown by Mason Quitevis gave the Trojans a 18-17 lead in the second half, but they were unable to hold on, yielding an early fourth quarter touchdown to Sequim’s Gavin Velarde in a loss that puts a dent into Olympic’s playoff hopes. Quitevis scored twice in the game and Malcolm Dewalt had a 47-yard touchdown run; Receiver Adam Johnson caught five passes for 57 yards.

Up next: Archbishop Murphy (4-0, 6-1) at Olympic (2-3, 3-4), at 7 p.m., Oct. 20.

Rogers 56, South Kitsap 26

Deyondre Davis rushed for 163 yards and a score, but it was not nearly enough for the Wolves as they fell to Rogers, 56-26. South Kitsap is still searching for its first win of the season, and has two games remaining to get it.

Up next: South Kitsap (0-6, 0-7) at Emerald Ridge (0-6, 0-7) at Sparks Stadium at 7 p.m., Oct. 21.
