Lancers fall to Mount Si, 38-7
History repeated itself.
The Kennedy Catholic High School football team's Class 3A state playoff run ended with a 38-7 loss to Mount Si -- the same team that dealt the Lancers their only previous loss of the year by a 30-0 score in the season opener.
JFK finished with a 9-2 overall record with Friday's state quarterfinal loss in North Bend.
A win would have advanced the Lancers into this coming weekend's state semifinals in the Tacoma Dome, but it was not to be.
Mount Si advanced instead, carrying with it an 11-1 overall record.
Mount Si quarterback Nick Mitchell proved to be too tough to handle, completing 19 of 29 passes for 228 yards.
The Lancers' lone touchdown came on a 10-yard run by Drew Thompson.
Kennedy had bounced back from the season opening loss to the Wildcats, winning an undefeated Seamount League title along the way to state.
The Lancers opened the playoffs with a 35-29 win over Mountlake Terrace before posting a 20-14 win over Columbia River in Vancouver.
