Lynden Lions 47,

Sedro-Woolley Cubs 0

SEDRO-WOOLLEY — The Cubs couldn't get anything going on either side of the ball in dropping to 1-3.

"Overall, the game was decided pretty early," said Sedro-Woolley coach Johnny Lee. "We had a hard time matching their size and physicality. A pretty frustrating night as we got pushed around on both sides of the ball."

Austin Crossen led Sedro-Woolley in rushing with 14 carries for 105 yards while Isaiah Baretto carried the ball seven times for 36 yards. Sedro-Woolley used 10 different ball carriers, rushing for 233 yards in an attempt to crack the Lions' defense as the Cubs' passing game was non-existent.

"Offensively, we ran the ball well," Lee said. "Crossen stepped up and had a nice game filling in for an injured Connor Davis. But we struggled to protect (quarterback) Carsten (Reynolds) in the passing game.

"Defensively, we struggled to stop the run. They were able to get big chunk plays running right at us. Xander Connelly had a nice game in his first start at linebacker."

Ferndale Golden Eagles 47,

Burlington-Edison Tigers 14

FERNDALE — The Golden Eagles led 35-0 at halftime and never looked back.

"This was a tough challenge for us tonight," said Burlington-Edison coach Andrew Olson. "I am proud of how this group continued to play hard and support each other in the face of adversity. This was a good learning experience against a great opponent."

The Tigers (2-2) had 299 yards of total offense: 203 on the ground and 96 through the air.

Burlington-Edison quarterback Zach Watson finished the game 7-for-19 through the air for 96 yards and an interception. His favorite target was Bode Brewer, who had four catches for 68 yards, an average of 17 yards per grab.

Always a threat to scramble away from the defense, Watson also led the team in rushing with 10 carries for 139 yards and a touchdown.

Francisco Sanchez-Mendoza scored Burlington-Edison's other rushing touchdown and had 10 carries for 48 yards.
