1B Football: Mossyrock Erupts in 78-36 Victory Over Charles Wright


Easton Kolb was on fire, scoring six total touchdowns to help Mossyrock earn its first win by easily outdistancing Charles Wright for a 78-36 non-league victory at home on Friday.

Kolb was the spark plug for the Vikings’ offense that churned out 502 total yards — including 343 on the ground in an impressive rushing display.

Four of Kolb’s seven carries went for touchdowns — including a 40-yarder — as he finished with 53 total yards on the ground. He threw for two more, a 45-yard TD strike to Zack Munos and a 44-yard TD reception to Keegan Kolb.

The Vikings led 22-8 after one quarter and 44-28 at the half.

Sage Griesen pumped out the tough yards on the ground, leading the Vikings with 15 carries for 143 yards. Keegan Kolb ran one time for an 86-yard touchdown jaunt, and Munoz had four carries for 35 yards and two TDs. Ryan Haenke, a lineman, got his turn in the backfield and blasted in a 7-yard touchdown run.

“It was a good night, offensively,” Mossyrock coach Eric Ollikainen said. “The kids stepped up and it was fun to watch.”

Mossyrock improves to 1-2 after losses to state contender Lummi and a tough 2B Wahkiakum team.

“We’re getting better every week,” Ollikainen said. “We talked about it not being 0-2, it’s what you do when you’re 0-2.”

Apparently, what you do is drop 78 points in your next game. 

Mossyrock travels to Chief Leschi for a 7 p.m. game on Friday.

Cardinals Can’t Keep Up With Comets

A week removed from losing big to Lummi, Naselle took its anger out on Winlock, handing the Cardinals a 64-22 defeat in Naselle on Friday.

The Comets burst for 622 total yards, including 542 on the ground to run away from a Cardinals team that entered the game undefeated at 2-0.

Winlock managed 228 total yards on the ground, led by tailback Nolan Swofford’s 20 carries for 137 yards and two touchdowns. Quarterback Neal Patching rushed 15 times for 98 yards and a score. 

Patching’s performance was highlighted by a 61-yard touchdown romp in the first quarter. Swofford had a 39-yard TD run in the third quarter.

The Cardinals’ offense was stalled by seven fumbles, four of which were lost. Winlock tallied 16 first downs to Naselle’s 22.
