Taylor Jackson rushed for over 250 yards and two touchdowns as the Vikings clinched their third league championship in five seasons with a 28-14 win over Olympic. Quarterback Colton Bower added 125 yards and two scores as North Kitsap’s no-huddle, high-tempo offense helped to wear down the Trojans. However, despite the loss, Olympic did qualify for the postseason as the Olympic League’s No. 3 team. Both teams play district playoff games this Friday.
