The third time proved not to be a charm for the Eagles. The Issaquah High School football team played its third-straight 3A team Sept. 20 against O’Dea.
MaxPreps Freeman Rankings for Washington had Issaquah still at 24, despite a 1-1 start. However, it was the lower-ranked, visiting Fighting Irish (38) that pulled off the upset, 51-26.
The two teams were all square at 14 after one quarter. The Eagles scored a pair of touchdowns with the usual suspects — Derek Chapman scored on a 38-yard pass from Jack Neary and Jack Gellatly rambled in from eight yards out.

The nonleague game’s outcome was in question until the final minutes, when No. 5 ranked Class 3A Mount Si held on to its come-from-behind victory against 4A Issaquah, 28-20.
Mount Si head coach Charlie Kinnune said the Wildcats have been a team “in search of an identity.”
