Franklin Pierce 23, Washington 17, OT: Mickey Ahrens has been part of five “Helmet Bowl” rivalry games at Franklin Pierce High School, including the past three as the coach.

And he knows one thing for sure — something crazy always seems to happen to determine the outcome.

The Cardinals needed every bit of good fortune to turn away Washington in overtime Friday night at Franklin Pierce District Stadium in Parkland.

With the win, Franklin Pierce clinched the No. 2 seed from the 2A SPSL Mountain Division behind champion Fife.

But first, the Cardinals were just relieved to earn their fifth victory in a row over the Patriots.

Martin Mendiola scooted 11 yards for a touchdown to give the Patriots a 17-14 lead with 2:17 go, capping a run of 10 unanswered points.

Franklin Pierce started at its own 40-yard line, and drove to the Patriots’ 5 before stalling.

Ahrens called upon first-year kicker Noah Carver, who is also the starting goalkeeper on the soccer team, to try and tie the game with a field goal.

Carver nailed the 22-yard attempt.

“All the trust with him was built last week (with a game-winning field goal over Foster). He shocked me.” Ahrens said. “But he’s as cool as it gets, and tonight, honestly I knew he was going to make that one.”

Washington got the football first in overtime, but on third down, Mendiola’s pass was picked off by Alex Bing in the end zone.

The Cardinals then rode their workhorse running back Stoney Shafer, who finished with a game-high 143 yards on 24 carries, to victory.

Shafer ripped off a 20-yad run on his first carry of overtime. Two plays later, he punched it in from 3 yards out for the game-winning score.

“Even in my first year as an assistant here, this was a crazy game. Everybody kept saying it that night, something weird always happens, and that the (win-loss) records really don’t matter,” Ahrens said.

“This year, we both came into the game with solid records, so we were expecting a good game.”

Orting 28, Eatonville 27: It came down to the final play but the Cardinals managed to hold on.

“We just knew they were probably going to the Bailey kid,” Orting coach Marty Parkhurst said. “ He was their go-to guy.”

Ryan Bailey caught 12 passes for 187 yards, but to make sure he didn’t convert the conversion, the Cardinals shifted to make sure he was well covered.

“We kinda played them straight up,” Parkhurst said. “We put our taller corner on him and it was a nice pass but it just got broken up in the back corner of the end zone.”

Besides a big defensive stop at the end, the Cardinals were also solid offensively behind senior Trevon Carter, who had seven carries for 116 years.

Carter was a go-to counter for the team when faced with an aggressive defensive line.

“They were playing our Jet Sweep really aggressively. Every play he ran was a counter,” Parkhurst said. “Every play they over covered the Jet Sweep he would run to daylight.”

Hazen 42, Kennedy Catholic 21: The Highlanders and Lancers were billed to have a young quarterback duel between sophomore Jaxon Ingram and freshman Sam Huard.

But then Delvon McNeely started running for Hazen (6-2, 5-1 NPSL Cascade). And he didn’t stop, running for 300 yards on 35 carries with five touchdowns.

“We started to be lean on him, he runs so hard,” Hazen said coach Chris Bennett. “He has that speed and if he gets through a tackle, he’s gone. It’s a nice security blanket.”

The only other score that the Highlanders got was a 99-yard interception return by Kendal Talton as Hazen beat Kennedy Catholic for just the second time in 26 years.

“This year was a huge leap, our big goal was to be a team that went out and wins,” Bennett said. “It's the same 32 teams that go to the playoffs, so tonight we secured that chance to get into the round of 32.”

Standing in the Highlanders way is the big showdown next week against Tahoma. That game will be played at 7 p.m., Thursday at Renton Memorial Stadium.

Tahoma 39, Kent-Meridian 14: The Bears cruised to the victory over the Royals on the arms and legs of Conner Lambro.

Lambro, a second-year starter for Tahoma (6-2, 5-1 NPSL Cascade) passed for 201 yards and three touchdowns, and ran for 71 yards and scored twice.

“He’s developed what we are trying to do offensively, he just doesn’t turn the ball over,” Tahoma coach Tony Davis said. “He makes good decisions and is athletic; it's an element that the defense has to account for.”

Lambro’s favorite target on the night was Jerrel Chapman, who caught four passes for 124 yards and two scores.

“Jerrel is a really good player,” Davis said. “He caught a short pass and took it for a long run. He has that ability, he’s fun to watch.”

With the win, the Bears are set up to clash with Hazen for a chance at the NPSL Cascade league title.

“The kids are excited to play in games like this, it makes it that much more special,’ Davis said. “Big week and exciting week for us, I’m excited for our team to rise to the challenge of Hazen.”

Auburn Mountainview 48, Decatur 27: Despite an injury to BYU-bound safety Talan Alfrey, it was a big win for the Lions over the Golden Gators.

“It was a great win cause it clinches us a playoff seed which is amazing for our kids,” Auburn Mountainview coach Jared Gervais said.

This is no small feat for the program.

“One of our goals was to make it four years consecutively. With this group, we have made it all four years,” Gervais said. “When we took over Auburn Mountainview seven years ago, we had never been to the playoffs. The accomplishment is pretty special for the kids and for the school.”

Leading the way to that win was the duo of quarterback Sui Daniels, who was 24 for 34 with 242 yards with four TDs, and wide receiver Talan Alfrey who had four catches for 76 yards with three TDs.

“We got up 21 to nothing in the first quarter,” Gervais said. “Then Talan got hurt and sprained his knee. They stormed back and made it 24-20 at halftime.”

That injury wasn’t enough to cost the Lions the game as they still pulled away with a decisive lead and they aren’t worried about Alfrey returning.

“We think he’s gonna be fine. He just kinda tweaked his knee a bit,” Gervais said. “We completely plan on him being back to play, definitely when the playoffs come around.”

Auburn Riverside 42, Federal Way 14: Quarterback Tiano Malietufa ran for 150 yards and threw for 101 yards as the Ravens (7-1) bounced back from their first loss of the season last week against Enumclaw.

The game was tied, 14-14 after the first quarter when Federal Way got a pair of TD runs from Alphon Tuputala. But Auburn Riverside shut the Eagles out the rest of the way. Eric Jones led Federal Way with 131 rushing yards on 15 carries.

Graham-Kapowsin 34, Bellarmine Prep 14: The Eagles secured a decisive win over the Lions as the team started strong and finished strong.

They took an early 14-0 lead and made it 24-0 by the end of the half.

UW quarterback commit Dylan Morris completed 11 of 19 passes for 193 yards and a touchdown, connecting five times with Eython Daugherty for 100 yards. Running back Micah Smith had 11 carries for 81 yards.

In the third the Lions tried to make a comeback by scoring 14 points. It was too little too late as the Eagles scored 10 more in the fourth to hold on for the win.

Sumner 42, Rogers 21: Tre Weed had 15 carries for 131 yards and scored three touchdowns as the Spartans won their third consecutive game.

Sumner (6-2) built a 28-7 lead by halftime and didn’t look back.
