The touchdown that wasn't turned into the touchdown that won it. An inadvertent whistle wiped out a 55-yard touchdown run by Bellevue's Kendrick Van Ackeren, but the No.1 Wolverines recovered and continued their drive, scoring 12 plays later for the decisive touchdown in a 21-14 victory over No.5 Juanita. Although senior Tyler Hasty officially ended Juanita's comeback bid with an over-the-shoulder interception with just 1:16 to play, it was Latrelle Dukes' 4-yard touchdown run with 7:29 left after the blown call that gave Bellevue (5-1, 4-0 KingCo 3A/2A) the final advantage. "I came back to the huddle, I was the one who scored in the first place, and I said 'guys, we're good, we're going to score anyway,'" said Van Ackeren. "Keep pushing, go hard and we'll be fine."
Although Tyler Allen didn't win Richard Petty's Driver Search II, a racing competition held deep in NASCAR country, the Interlake graduate and promising race car driver says he came away from the September event with plenty. He came away with seat time in several cars. He drove new tracks, including Charlotte Motor Speedway. He filmed commercials like a real NASCAR star. And he made several connections that might just jump-start his career in professional racing. "I take away a much fatter resume," said Allen, who finished fifth at the competition. "I just added five racetracks and four race cars to my resume. I've tripled my experience."

Newport coach Mike Miller was somewhat at a loss for words following the Knights loss to Eastlake Friday night. "I don't have much to say, just that I'm totally disappointed," Miller said. "I thought we could beat this team."

Bolstered by top performances in several flights, the Bellevue boys cross country team captured the Bellevue Invitational team title at Lake Sammamish State Park on Saturday. Bellevue scored 51 points to top second place Richland (91) by a big margin. Bellevue's John Fowler helped the Wolverines by capturing first place in the varsity 3-4 race, while Addison Woolsey took first for Bellevue in the varsity 5-6 race with a time of 17:17. "It didn't necessarily surprise me that they ran as strong as they did because they have been preparing since last season," said Bellevue coach John Hill. "But it never gets old to see that kind of result."

Nothing went right in the first half for Sammamish Friday night. They snapped a ball over their quarterbacks head for a turnover. They allowed a blocked punt. They had a field goal attempt blocked and returned for a touchdown. Yes, things went off the rails early for Sammamish against Juanita. All the early game troubles carried over to the second half, and Juanita won running away, 58-0
One of the staple's of Bellevue's success this decade, coach Butch Goncharoff says, is the team's ability to practice like they play. To show the same intensity in practice that they do in the games. Early Friday night, the state's Class 3A No.1 team played like they practiced this week: not well.
As his defense sought to shut down one final Bellevue drive, Skyline quarterback Max Browne stood behind the rest of his team on the sideline, staring at the game clock and swaying side to side as his team clung to a seven point lead. The time couldn't pass fast enough for the 6-foot-5 sophomore. "That was the longest three minutes of my life," Browne said. "I looked up at the clock and I was just pacing. I have all the confidence in my defense but that was a crazy game."
Friday night was a case study in an opportunistic defense. Newport brushed past a shaky start and took advantage of Mercer Island miscues in a hard-fought 28-21 win over the Islanders that came down to the final drive. Knights senior linemen Lee Stoops and Matt Murray combined to sack standout Islanders quarterback Jeff Lindquist with less than five seconds to play to seal the victory for Newport.
