Never miss a local story.
Time remaining: 2:31 in the third quarter
Score at the time: Olympia, 9-7
What happened: Sumner just needed some sort of offense after being shut out in the first half. And since Olympia was keying so hard on UW commit Connor Wedington, especially after he just got the Spartans on the scoreboard with a 37-yard touchdown run, Sumner dialed Tre Weed’s number on a screen pass. He weaved across the field and dove for the left pylon for the go-ahead touchdown as Sumner took a 14-9 lead and never looked back after that to hand Olympia its first loss. The play was designed to get pressure out of the box to set up some easier runs later in the drive. Weed played predominately receiver last year before switching to running back to form a 1-2 punch with Wedington.
