Spartans beat North Kitsap for Agate Cup

The Bainbridge High School varsity football team is undefeated.

Having claimed a decisive 14-3 win against the visitors from North Kitsap in their first outing of the season Friday, the island squad walked away with a flawless record and possession of the prized Agate Cup trophy for the next year.

It was a historic win, the first time in recent memory the Spartans had bested the Vikings in this, their traditional first-game face-off, a beloved local sports tradition.

Though technically a non-league game, BHS Head Coach Jeff Rouser said Friday’s win was a huge step for the team and would skyrocket their morale and confidence as they prepare for true Metro competition.

He especially praised the Spartan defense, which was firing on all cylinders in the NK game.

The Spartans will play their next game on the road against Olympic High School on Friday, Sept. 13.

They return home to host Interlake at 7 p.m. Friday, Sept. 20.
