Bellevue marches back to Tacoma with 40-3 win over Peninsula | Prep sports news

Only two wins stand between Bellevue's football program and yet another measure of history, as the Wolverines moved past Peninsula 40-3 on Friday in the 3A state quarterfinals to head back to the Tacoma Dome for next week's semi-final round.

Scott Whiting, Bishard Baker and Myles Jack scored first half touchdowns for the Wolverines, which sport a pair of number two national rankings and ran away with the win.

Place kicker Ryan Bordner hit a 48-yard field goal, which set a new school record.

The winner of a Saturday quarterfinal between Kennedy and KingCo foe Mount Si will be Bellevue's semi-final opponent. Eastside Catholic faces Marysville-Pilchuck and North Thurston meets University in tomorrow's other 3A quarterfinal games.
