Football

The Bainbridge football team put forth a good effort, but lost to Seattle Prep 21-14 in overtime Friday at West Seattle Stadium.

Six turnovers ultimately led to the team’s downfall. One of those fumbles was returned for a touchdown in the first quarter. Prep scored on a pass play in the second to take a 14-0 lead into halftime.

The Spartans didn’t score until Corey Touchette ran one in from three yards out with 8:30 left in the game. The Panthers had a chance to run the clock out to end the game, but they fumbled at midfield with 1:20 left. The offense drove down the field and as time expired, Chris Bell completed a pass to Alex Crane in the corner of the endzone to eventually tie the game.

But Bainbridge was picked off on their first drive of overtime. Nick Holt ran it in on Prep’s first attempt on offense to seal the win for the Panthers.

The Spartans travel to North Thurston Friday for a nonleague matchup, then return to host O’Dea Oct. 22 in its last home game of the season. Game time is at 7 p.m.
