Week 6 football roundup: Klahowya picks up first win; NK knocks off rival Kingston; Bremerton takes down Port Angeles; Olympic falls to Sequim

Klahowya 43, Vashon Island 0

Friday night belonged to Klahowya head coach Jeff Witte and his team as the Eagles won their first game of the season and first game on the school campus. For Witte, it was his first career victory as a head coach. Hunter Wallis rushed for 131 yards and two touchdowns and his brother, Logan, a freshman, picked up 55 yards, his first high school rushing touchdown, caught two passes for 38 yards and also scored on a fumble recovery. Senior Nick Lewis completed all four of his pass attempts for 77 yards, ran for 42 yards and a score and also returned a fumble for a touchdown.

Next game: Oct. 18, 7 p.m. at Charles Wright Academy.

North Kitsap 49, Kingston 32

Vikings quarterback Colton Bower rushed for three touchdowns and pass for two more in his team’s 49-32 win over their district rival. Bower converted on a couple of short runs in the first half and connected with receiver Lincoln Castillo for an eight-yard score as North Kitsap took a 28-14 halftime lead. Bower tossed another touchdown pass to Aiden King in the third quarter and then capped his team’s scoring with a nine-yard run. Josh Fisher also added a 24-yard rushing score for North Kitsap. Tyler Marquez led Kingston with three touchdowns; two rushing and one on a kickoff return. Kyle Coe-Yarr returned an interception for a touchdown.

Next game: North Kitsap: Oct. 18, 7 p.m. at North Mason; Kingston: Oct. 18, 6:30 p.m. vs. Bremerton.

Bremerton 24, Port Angeles 6

Darick DeJesus led the Knights with 156 rushing yards as they beat Port Angeles, 24-6, though they had to do it without quarterback Kelo Logova, who was injured in the first quarter and did not return. Jayden Quenga rushed for 89 yards and a touchdown and Bremerton also received 67 yards and a rushing touchdown from Sean Booker.

Next game: Oct. 18, 6:30 p.m. at Kingston.

Sequim 37, Olympic 14

The Trojans fell behind 16-0 at halftime and couldn’t catch up as they let a great opportunity to take control of the league slip away against Sequim. Olympic struggled on Sequim’s grass field and the Wolves received a boost as starting quarterback Taig Wiker return to the lineup. Trent Feistner scored on a nine-yard run in the third quarter and Anthony Turso connected with Adam Johnson for a 21-yard touchdown, but the Trojans couldn’t slow down the Sequim offense.

Next game: Oct. 18, 6:30 p.m. vs. Forks.

Peninsula 27, Central Kitsap 7

Central Kitsap’s offense has predictably struggled without its starting quarterback, top running back and top receiver, managing just one touchdown in a tough loss to Peninsula, though the team is still in contention for a playoff spot. Freshman running back Kouper Hall scored the only touchdown of the game in the fourth quarter. Matthew Willis led the Cougars with 94 yards on 13 carries. They need a bounce back game next week at North Thurston before taking on tough opponents in Capital and Gig Harbor with a district berth on the line.

Next game: Oct. 18, 7 p.m. at North Thurston.

Graham-Kapowsin 41, South Kitsap 0

The Eagles showed why they are one of the five best teams in the state with a 41-0 victory over South Kitsap on Friday. Graham-Kapowsin scored four times in the first quarter, putting the Wolves too far behind. The schedule doesn’t get any easier for South Kitsap as they travel to Puyallup on Thursday.

Next game: Oct. 17, 7 p.m. at Puyallup.
