Week 3 Roundup: CK soars to 3-0, Sequim stuns NK

A wild comeback, two lightning delays and an enormous upset capped one of the more exciting nights of football games in Kitsap in recent memory.

Central Kitsap 30, Yelm 28

The high-scoring Cougars improved to 3-0 on the season, holding off a furious comeback charge by the Tornados. Alex Refilong posted another 200-yard rushing game and Elijah McGee scored four touchdowns in the victory. McGee connected twice through the air with receiver Jason Almonte for two scores and rushed for two more.

Next game: Sept. 20, 7 p.m. at Timberline.

Sequim 16, North Kitsap 14

Riley Cowan hit three field goals and threw two touchdowns passes to lead the Wolves to an upset victory over North Kitsap. The Vikings found themselves pinned inside their own 20-yard line several times throughout the game. Andrew Blackmore threw touchdown passes to Colton Bower and Blake Wetzsteon, and Isaiah Kahana led the North Kitsap ground game with 83 yards on 16 carries.

Next game: Sept. 21, 7 p.m., vs. Bremerton.

North Mason 51, Olympic 47

The Bulldogs scored 30 points in the fourth quarter to deny the Trojans their first victory on Friday night. Olympic’s Zeke Gillick threw for over 250 yards and four touchdowns, but they couldn’t stop North Mason’s Reece Smelcer, who rushed for five touchdowns, including two in that fateful final stanza.

Next game: Sept. 20, 6:45 p.m., vs. Kingston.

Klahowya 37, Granite Falls 7

This game ended well after 11 p.m. thanks to two separate lightning delays up at Granite Falls, but Klahowya improved to 2-1 on the season with an easy 30-point victory in its last non-league game. Quarterback John Hartford picked apart the Tigers defense, completing 20 of 28 passes for 256 yards and two scores and rushing for a third. Drew Dickson caught five passes for 104 yards and Chase Templeton and Hayden Steele caught touchdown passes. Hunter Wallis rushed 16 times for 81 yards and a score.

Next game: Sept. 21, 7:15 p.m., vs. Chimacum.

Port Angeles 28, Kingston 6

Garrett Sitting-Dog rushed for 128 yards and a touchdown for the Bucs, but a pair of second half touchdowns by the Riders sunk Kingston at home on Friday. It was a one-score game for much of the contest, but the offense struggled without their starting quarterback and left tackle. Port Angeles’s Brenden Roloson-Hines threw touchdown passes late in the third and early in the fourth to seal the victory.

Next game: Sept. 20, 6:45 p.m., at Olympic.

Bremerton 40, Rochester 18

Rasheed Joiner rushed for 212 yards and four touchdowns as the Knights got into the win column with a big victory over Rochester. Bremerton rushed for 451 yards in total in the game as Ryan Saylor carried eight times for 91 yards and two touchdowns and Darick Dejesus added 89 yards on ten carries.

Next game: Sept. 21, 7 p.m., at North Kitsap.

Curtis 65, South Kitsap 0

The high-scoring Vikings were up 52-0 at halftime as South Kitsap dropped to 0-3 on the season. The Wolves have now been outscored 156-0 in three games. The good news? The Wolves take on the SPSL’s only other winless teams over the next two weeks — Emerald Ridge and Bellarmine Prep.

Next game: Sept. 21, 7 p.m., at Emerald Ridge.
