Midway through the third quarter, the Skyline Spartans had a three-touchdown lead and seemed to be cruising toward their eighth straight appearance in the Class 4A state football playoffs.
A victory that seemed well within their grasp never materialized as the Skyview Storm scored the last 24 points and capped a 34-31 win by stuffing Skyline running back Rashaad Boddie on a goal-line play in double overtime, ending the Spartans’ season in stunning fashion.
“Last season was very unique. I’ve never had the situation where one play call could determine the end of the season,” Skyline coach Mat Taylor said. “We’re fourth-and-1 on the 1 to win the game. We could’ve kicked the field goal to go to a third overtime, but we went for it, and I wouldn’t change the call.” Read more

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.”

If there were any doubts about Bothell’s ability to win a big football game on the road, the Cougars destroyed those theories in the opening minute of their Oct. 17 game at Skyline High School.
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.
