For Eastlake's seniors, Friday's game against Lynden was emotional, knowing there weren't playoffs on the horizon. Briefly, the Lions looked like they would give the Wolves a game. But by the 2nd quarter, Eastlake showed Lynden what it means to play KingCo 4A football, rolling to a 42-7 victory.
The Wolves jumped out to a 42-0 first quarter lead. By the time North Creek crossed mid-field, the Wolves were deep into their roster and the only remaining question was whether or not honorary ballboy Chris Brookshier would score.
The scoreboard and the standings are merciless and they award no points for moral victories. The fact remains, the Eastlake Wolves played as gutty a game as you will ever see against an equally tenacious opponent before ultimately falling to Skyline 31-24
With the Eastlake student section amped up on “camouflage night” and a strong showing of traveling fan support ready for kick off, Jack Matheson took the honors of the opening kickoff…kicking to the goal line.
On a perfect Friday night for football, Eastlake Wolves got back on the winning track, defeating the host Redmond Mustangs 32-18. While the win was nice, it came in a week that featured two examples of the Eastlake "Wolf Strong Pack Strong" spirit in full effect away from the football field.
