Week 7 Football Roundup: CK, Klahowya, Bremerton, North Kitsap all win big

North Kitsap 53, North Mason 6

These Vikings are starting to look more like last year’s state quarterfinal team. It didn’t take them long to get on the scoreboard as Andrew Blackmore hooked up with Riley Solis for a 52-yard touchdown, and the onslaught of points continued from there. Solis added another rushing score in the first quarter, as did Isaiah Kahana. North Kitsap led 19-0. John Jones scored three touchdowns in three different ways — on a 32-yard pass to Aiden Allsop, on an 84-yard punt return and on a 40-yard reception from Blackmore.

Next game: Oct. 19, 6 p.m., at Port Angeles.

Bremerton 50, Kingston 0

Rasheed Joiner led the Knights with 227 rushing yards and five touchdowns as they blew past Kingston. The Bremerton ground game churned out a total of 522 yards as Kaipo Retome (121 yards, one touchown) Ryan Saylor, (74 yards, one touchdown) and Brock Criss (41 yards, one touchdown) all proved to be major contributors in the game. Next week, the Knights take on Olympic in a game in which the winning team has the inside track for a playoff spot.

Next game: Bremerton: Oct. 19, 6:45 p.m. at Olympic; Kingston: Oct. 19, 7 p.m. at North Mason.

Klahowya 44, Charles Wright Academy 20

Hunter Wallis’s third rushing touchdown of the game swung the momentum back in Klahowya’s favor as it won its third-straight Nisqually League game. Wallis rushed for 109 yards on 23 carries and also had two interceptions on defense, one of which he returned for a 55-yard touchdown. John Hartford threw for 243 yards and one touchdown, hooking up five times with Drew Dickson for 123 yards. Dickson also made two interceptions and kicked a 29-yard field goal.

Next game: Oct. 19, 7 p.m. at Port Townsend.

Central Kitsap 46, North Thurston 6

It could have easily been a trap game for the Cougars, but instead they dominated North Thurston in a Thursday night game. Alex Refilong rushed for 196 yards and two touchdowns and Elijah McGee added 45 yards and two scores of his own.

The playoff race in the South Sound Conference got very interesting with this past weekend’s results. Three teams — Timberline, Yelm and Peninsula — all have 4-1 league records while Capital and Central Kitsap are 3-2. Thus, Thursday’s matchup at Capital will be a de facto playoff game. It won’t necessarily eliminate either team from the postseason, but it would leave the losing team counting on fortunate results in the other league games. Four teams will qualify for the district round out of the SSC.

Next game: Oct. 18, 7 p.m. at Capital.

Forks 49, Olympic 26

The Trojans had a late-season, non-league game out in Twilight country but came away with a 49-26 loss. No matter, as their postseason hopes largely rest on their next game against Bremerton at home.

Next game: Oct. 19, 6:45 p.m., vs. Bremerton.

Puyallup 48, South Kitsap 0

The Wolves were shutout for the sixth time in seven games, this time by one of the best teams in the state. Puyallup quarter Jacob Holcomb threw four touchdown passes against South Kitsap. The Wolves head on the road next week to take on Olympia, a team with just one victory on the season, which represents a slightly less intense test for them.

Next game: Oct. 19, 7 p.m. at Olympia.
