Everything goes right in the
season finale vs. West Seattle.
Even with nothing on the line, the Bainbridge football team was still playing for pride.
Quinton Agosta threw only two times, but both were for scores as the Spartans romped over the West Seattle Wildcats 47-7 at Memorial Stadium in Seattle in a Metro League crossover game.
Carter Williams rushed just nine times but racked up 122 yards and a touchdown, while the Spartan defense held the Wildcats to 186 total yards.
“We played really well,â€ head coach Andy Grimm said. “We were marching all over. We had motivation, but I think they were stunned because we were executing so well.
“I’m proud of the kids. They came out intense and it was a good way to finish. We had talked all week that it was the last time most of them would play football – ever – so take advantage of it, and the time you have with each other.â€
Bryan Gilbreath caught both of Agosta’s passes, one for a 50-yard score. Agosta also ran for a touchdown as did Jake Hinton, Clif McKenzie and Max Kauffman. As a team, the Spartans rushed for 410 yards, raising their season total to 2,648.
Defensively, Josh Truan, Kyle Petheram and Jake O’Malley all recorded sacks, while Petheram led the team with 13 tackles, eight of which were solo. Peck had an interception as well.
While they didn’t meet their preseason goals, Grimm said they “set the bar higher than they ever have before,â€ a good indication the program is on an upswing.
“We ended up 6-4, a one game difference off of last year,â€ he said. “On paper, that’s pretty good but in our society, you’re judged on how far you made it into the playoffs or if you won a state title. But the kids were committed in the offseason and they gave it their all, and as coaches that’s all we can ask for.â€
Next year, Grimm will have to deal with the loss of 17 seniors, including most of his running backs and linemen.
“We had a meeting and we’re starting to work on next year,â€ he said. “We’ve got our work cut out for us as a staff and me personally to get the most out of these kids.
“But next year we know our skill guys will be back and they’ll have another year to get stronger and faster and work on their skills.â€
