Week 6 Football Roundup: Record-setting day for Klahowya, NK cruises in rivalry game

Only two teams in Kitsap County won this week.

Klahowya 46, Vashon Island 7

The Eagles continue to rack up boat loads of points this season, bringing their average up to 37 per game with a 46-7 victory over Vashon Island. Quarterback John Hartford completed 20-of-25 passes for 207 yards and five touchdowns, the latter statistic a new school record. Hartford spread the ball around — Drew Dickson caught five passes for 82 yards and three touchdowns; Jacob Keppert had five receptions for 48 yards and a touchdown; and Hunter Wallis hauled in six passes for 54 yards and a score. He also carried 15 times for 116 yards. Hartford is now about 636 yards short of the school’s single-season passing record set by George Harris in 2015 with at least four games to go. Klahowya should be ready for its final four league games, which will no doubt represent the toughest tests on its schedule, starting this week with Charles Wright.

Next game: Oct. 12, 7:15 p.m., vs. Charles Wright Academy.

Peninsula 33, Central Kitsap 24

The Cougars were a two-point conversion away from tying the game against Peninsula and perhaps pulling off another monumental upset. The Cougars trailed by scores of 20-6 and 26-12, but two second half touchdowns by Alex Refilong nearly erased the deficit. Refilong scored from 10 yards out to cut the lead to two, but Central Kitsap could not convert on the following try. Burke Griffin scored a late rushing touchdown for the Seahawks.

Next game: Oct. 11, 7:15 p.m., vs. North Thurston.

Port Angeles 28, Bremerton 9

Turnovers and penalties were the story for the Knights as they were unable to build on last week’s win over North Mason. Rasheed Joiner scored Bremerton’s lone touchdown and carried 12 times for 65 yards. The Knights also lost quarterback Kelo Logova to injury, forcing senior Ryan Saylor to move under center. Abraham Parrish led the team in rushing with 93 yards in the game. They will likely need two more league victories for a shot at the playoffs, which could set up a big showdown with Olympic in two weeks if they can get by Kingston on Friday.

Next game: Oct. 12, 7 p.m., vs. Kingston.

Sequim 28, Olympic 9

The Trojans led 9-7 at halftime, but first-place Sequim wore them down with a relentless up-the-middle rushing attack led by Taig Wiker and his 268-yard performance. Wiker scored twice in the second half and Riley Cowan added a rushing score as the Wolves pulled away. Darelle White scored Olympic’s only touchdown on a 12-yard run. Josh Kennedy hit a 27-yard field goal in the second quarter.

Next game: Oct. 12, 7 p.m. at Forks.

North Kitsap 42, Kingston 0

North Kitsap took home its sixth consecutive victory in this rivalry, cruising past Kingston 42-0. Clayton Williams opened the scoring with a seven-yard touchdown run and the Vikings never looked back. Riley Solis scored two rushing touchdowns and Isaiah Kahana added a third. John Jones and Andrew Blackmore each threw a touchdown pass as well. North Kitsap welcomes North Mason to Poulsbo on Friday in what should be a good matchup. Kingston will look to rebound on the road against Bremerton.

Next game: North Kitsap: Oct. 12, 7 p.m., vs. North Mason; Kingston: Oct. 12, 7 p.m., at Bremerton.

Graham-Kapowsin 42, South Kitsap 0

Dylan Morris threw three touchdown passes for the Golden Eagles as they cruised past South Kitsap 42-0. Graham-Kapowsin scored all six touchdowns in the first half — two were special teams scores and a third came on a fumble return by Nasier Ford. The Wolves face the current top team in the SPSL, Puyallup, next week at home.

Next game: Oct. 12, 7 p.m., vs. Puyallup
