Spartans storm through SK for season finale football win

The Bainbridge High School varsity football team defeated the visiting South Kitsap Wolves 34-21 Thursday, Nov. 2, to finish their season with a 5-4 overall record — their first winning season since 2010.

Bainbridge jumped to a 6-0 lead in the first quarter behind two Tanner Shattuck field goals of 41 and 30 yards, respectively.

Kyle Bierly scored the Spartans first touchdown on a 4-yard run in the second quarter, followed by a Max McLeod touchdown on a 60-yard run off of a hook-and-ladder pass from Gannon Winker to Ethan Peloquin, who then lateraled the ball to McLeod for the touchdown, making the score 20-0 at halftime.

The Spartans expanded their lead in the third quarter on a 10-yard touchdown pass from Winker to Peloquin and a 41-yard touchdown reception by Jacob Hogger on another pass from Winker, opening the lead to 34-0 at the end of the third quarter.

South Kitsap closed the gap with three rapid touchdown passes by quarterback Garrison Glisson in the fourth, as the Spartans began to substitute younger players.

Winker led the way for the Spartans passing for 141 yards, with 82 of those coming on receptions from leading receiver Peloquin.

Hogger recorded 100 yards rushing, while on the defensive side Kyle Bierly led with nine tackles and a sack.

Hogger and Peloquin both recorded interceptions as well.

South Kitsap, the state 4A champions in 1994, and runner up in ’82, ’84, and ’97, reportedly finished their season with a 0-10 record.

The game was the final outing of the year for the Spartans, concluded the season, and took place during an unseasonably cold early November night. A faint rain fell during part of the matchup, light drops mixed with intermittent semi-snow.
