SEDRO-WOOLLEY — The Sedro-Woolley High School football team had its best game of the season Friday, beating Mount Vernon 35-14.

The Cubs got a spark from Carsten Reynolds, a freshman who rushed for 127 yards, passed for 52 and scored three touchdowns.

"To ask a freshman to come in and play quarterback, lead your team, and run your offense in Week 3 of his high school football career is a tough task. He handled the situation with a great attitude, great effort, and was extremely fun to watch," Sedro-Woolley coach Johnny Lee said.

Reynolds had two rushing touchdowns and returned a kickoff for an 88-yard touchdown.

The Cubs (1-2) also had two rushing touchdowns from Connor Davis, who rushed for 71 yards and caught two passes for 18 yards.

"Offensively, I felt we were much more explosive," said Lee. "We ran the ball well, got the ball into the hands of a lot of different people, and for the first time this season, we finished drives."

Defensively, Sedro-Woolley was strong, holding Mount Vernon to 97 passing yards and 54 rushing yards.

Mount Vernon's two touchdowns came from Cole Williams and Cads Pineda.

While Williams scored a rushing touchdown, Pineda had a 71-yard punt return for a score.

Williams passed for 80 yards and rushed for 13.

Mount Vernon is 0-3.
