Federal Way 28, Kentridge 6: Soloman Bang had a hand in three of Federal Way’s the four touchdowns in leading the Eagles to a win on Thursday.

“He is definitely becoming more comfortable as a quarterback,” said Federal Way assistant coach Jared Wren. “He didn’t turn the ball over and read the defense better to make better throws.”

In the third quarter, Bang threw a 30-yard touchdown to Poet Grayson to make it 28-0.

Ben Fulligan threw a 70-yard touchdown to Ben Victoria for the Chargers’ only score.
