The Liberty High School football team fell to the Mount Si Wildcats, 35-17, in a game that dropped Liberty’s season record to 6-3. The game on Halloween, Oct. 31, was the final game of the regular season before Liberty heads into the playoffs to face Fife on Nov. 7.
“It’s disappointing because it felt like we were in the game and we could win,” head coach Steve Valach said.
The Patriots scored first blood against the Wildcats with a touchdown run from junior running back Joe Cunningham in the first quarter. The touchdown came after an interception thrown by Mount Si quarterback Jonathan Hillel.

Head coach Mat Taylor preached resiliency to his Skyline High School football players after they suffered a 56-0 blowout loss Oct. 17 at the hands of top-ranked Bothell.
The Spartans proved they had thick skin in the next two games. They rolled past Inglemoor on Oct. 24, and then walloped rival Eastlake, 40-10, Oct. 31 to clinch second place in the KingCo Conference and a home playoff game this week.
“After Week 7, we just said it was going to have to be a thing of the past,” Taylor said. “This is the beset possible outcome we could’ve had after losing to Bothell.”

Bothell, the top-ranked team in Class 4A, scored on its first two plays from scrimmage and went on to thoroughly dominate the Skyline Spartans, 56-0, clinching the KingCo Conference title in the process.
“We couldn’t ask for anything better — score on the first play, score on the second play of offense,” said senior Sam McPherson, the Cougars’ star running back and defensive back.

“We had our chance,” head coach Buddy Bland said. “We just didn’t take care of business.”
