Puyallup High senior quarterback Nathaniel Holcomb added another chapter in his run to break the program’s single-season passing record, throwing for 346 yards and four touchdowns Friday night in a 47-26 nonleague win over Marysville-Pilchuck.
Holcomb now is 174 for 301 passing for 2,725 yards and 37 touchdowns on the season, and with two games left, he is two touchdowns from tying Luke Huard’s record of 39 touchdown passes.
Huard set the record over 13 games, while Holcomb has only played seven this season.
Puyallup (4-3, 3-3) had more big production from two of its trio of receivers who are each closing in on 800-plus recieving yard seasons, with Darius Morrison (141 yards) hauling in two touchdowns and Tallon Yerbury (123) bringing down one. Yerbury leads the trio with 796 yards on the season, with Morrison (731) and Noah McFadden (695) right behind him.
Never miss a local story.
Sumner 21, Bellarmine Prep 3
University of Washington commit Connor Wedington’s two touchdown runs led the Spartans to a road win at a very muddy Memorial Field.
Sumner (7-0, 6-0) is two wins away from going undefeated in league for the third time in four years — in 2013 in the 2A SPSL, last year in the 3A SPSL and now this year in the 4A SPSL.
Sumner can capture the 4A South Puget Sound League championship with one win over in its final two regular season games.
Cascade Christian 13, Charles Wright 0
Touchdown runs by Tyquan Coleman and Zackary Bartolome backed a strong performance by Cascade Christian’s stout defense in a win in University Place.
The undefeated Cougars (6-0, 3-0) will host games over the next two weeks against Bellevue Christian (2-5, 2-2) and co-league leader Port Townsend (4-2, 3-0) in what could decide the 1A Nisqually League title.
South Kitsap 57, Rogers 20
Makeo Gillespie threw for three touchdowns, connecting with Cade Barrett on two of those throws, but the Rams couldn’t outduel the Wolves at Sparks Stadium on Friday. Rogers (0-7, 0-6) closes out the season against the top two teams in the league, traveling to Sumner this week before hosting Graham-Kapowsin (6-1, 5-1) to close out the regular season.
Elsewhere, Emerald Ridge (2-4, 2-3) played a makeup game Monday night (after the press deadline for the Herald’s print edition) against Curtis (1-5) after Saturday’s game was postponed due to heavy rain and winds.
