Prep football week 3: Home dates for G-K, Cruisers

Prep football week 3: Home dates for G-K, Cruisers Emerald Ridge (0-2) at Graham-Kapowsin (2-0), Sept. 18, 7 p.m. Scouting report: Graham-Kapowsin's Eagles pulled away in the later stages of the contest for 20-7 victory last Thursday over Jefferson in a non-league high school football game last week. Next up is Emerald Ridge at Art Crate Field in the first game of the 4A South Puget Sound League conference season for both teams. G-K could have revenge on its mind. Last year, the Jaguars beat the Eagles in overtime in the conference opener. It was the Eagles' only SPSL loss in 2014 and prevented them from winning a second consecutive South Division title. For the second straight week, G-K will be without all-state offensive lineman Foster Sarell, who dislocated a bone in the season-opening victory over Kentlake. In last week's battle between members of different divisions of the SPSL (Jefferson is in the Northeast), the Eagles led 9-7 until the fourth quarter. Then Noah harden kicked his second field goal, a 25-yarder, and Ezra Bolton intercepted a pass and ran it back 15 yards for a touchdown, helping give the Raiders (1-1) their first loss in 2015.
Aberdeen (0-2) at Eatonville (1-1), Sept. 18, 7 p.m. It's the start of Eatonville's defense of the 1A Evergreen League championship. Aberdeen was one of the Cruisers' victims as they rolled undefeated through last year's regular season. The Bobcats, 2-7 a year ago, remained winless this season after losing 10-9 last week to Centralia. Eatonville, meanwhile, got their first victory of 2015 48-6 over the Wright Tarriers, who must feel they've seen enough of the Cruisers. Last Friday's 42-point victory, added to two blowout victories last year, gave Eatonville a 176-46 edge on the scoreboard the last three times these schools have met on the gridiron. Last week, Eatonville led 21-6 at halftime and broke the game open with 27 points in the third period.
Bethel (2-0) at Puyallup (0-2), Sept. 18, 7 p.m. Scouting report: Two weeks into the 2015 season, these teams are going opposite directions. Bethel is undefeated after humbling Mount Rainier 42-17 last week, while Puyallup lost to Lincoln 41-16 and has been outscored a combined 74-43 in its two losses.
