Spartans score second shutout, blank Rams in prep football

SEATTLE – The Bainbridge Spartans roared to their second shutout in a row in varsity football, whupping Ingraham 28-0 Friday in Seattle.

It was the Spartans’ game from start to finish, and the win leveled Bainbridge’s season record at 2-2.

The Metro League victory was the second scorefest in a row by BHS, and followed the team’s first win of the season against King’s Way Christian last week, a 44-0 drubbing of the 1A team from Vancouver, Washington.

The Rams thus fell to 0-1 in Metro with the loss (1-3 overall), while the victorious Spartans will return home to face Lakeside (2-1) at 7 p.m. Friday, Sept. 29.

Touchdowns against Ingraham were scored in the first, third and fourth quarters.

In the first, Kyle Bierly made a 35-yard run for the first points of the game, after which Ethan Peloquin scored on a 30-yard pass from QB Gannon Winker.

BHS kicker Tanner Shattuck went 2-for-2 in the first as well.

No points were earned in the second.

In the third, Jacob Hogger notched a third TD for BHS off a 5-yard run. Shattuck again made good for the extra point.

In the fourth, it was Peloquin again, this time off a 40-yard pass by Winker, and Shattuck again came through with the kick.

Winker managed to pass 90 yards in the game, completing three out of 11 attempts.

Bierly led the Spartan rushing game, finishing the night with 11 attempts for 75 yards.

McLeod totaled 36 yards, Hogger 18 and Winker himself 14.

Peloquin was the star Spartan receiver, finishing the game with three receptions for 90 yards — and, of course, the two touchdowns.

Sacks were scored by Bierly (two), Mitch Melby and Solon Rich.

Hogger racked up the most tackles, though, managing nine (and two assists).

Nate Michaels chipped in eight (plus two assists), Bierly seven (three assists) and Jakob Mathisen five (with one assist).

The Lakeside game is “shaping up to be the pivotal game of the year in the Metro League Valley Division,” according to BHS team spokesman John Bierly, as the Spartans and the Lions are set to battle for the first-place spot and the inside track to the division’s sole 3A playoff berth.

“Bainbridge has won its last two games, outplaying its opponents since the second half of its game against Olympic by a combined score of 92-0 over the last nine quarters with shutouts against Kings Way and metro rival Ingraham,” he said.

“Lakeside boasts one of the Metro League’s leading passing attacks, featuring Quarterback AJ Allen, throwing to receivers Max Knight, Adolphus Adams and Will Johnson.”
