More from the Seattle Times:
Mountlake Terrace (6-4) played in its first playoff game, but nobody will remember the final score. The Hawks won’t focus on the fact that the Cougars (7-3) forced three fumbles that led to three touchdowns. They won’t look back on being held without a first down in the first half. They won’t reminisce about Central Kitsap’s potent running game or its two 27-yard passing touchdowns.
“We were put in a situation where we played a pretty dang good football team,” Hawks coach Tony Umayam said. “They came out and made some big plays in the first half and got the momentum and never let it go.”
What the Hawks will focus on, though, is Zach Karels’ interception in the third quarter. They will remember Ellersick’s 12-yard run on the next play that gave them a first down. They will look back on senior quarterback Brandyn Eckhart’s 25-yard pass to Karels and all of the other plays, throughout the season, that produced this first playoff appearance.
