Juanita thumps Lake Washington during rivalry game | Prep football
During the past five years the cross-town rivalry game between Juanita and Lake Washington has been one sided. This year was supposed to be different.
The Kangs came into the game with a record over .500, looking like a formidable opponent. But the Rebels were not intimidated, as they thumped Lake Washington 40-0 Friday in a 4A KingCo match up.
Juanita began the game with a Trayon McNairy 1–yard touchdown run and then added a touchdown through the air, a 25-yard strike from Tavin Montgomery to Landyn Milburn.
Nick Horne’s 30-yard field goal, to start the second quarter, gave the Rebels a 17-0 lead.
Juanita continued with the gas pedal to the floor, as Montgomery found Kendrick Murphy for a 10-yard touchdown pass, giving the Rebels a 24-0 halftime lead.
The ugly night continued for Lake Washington, beginning the third-quarter with a safety, as a bad snap bounced out of the back of the end zone.
Rebel Oscar Fuentes got into the scoring action with a 23-yard touchdown run during the third quarter. But the longest score of the night for the Rebels came during the fourth quarter with the game all but over. An 80-yard pass from Nick Peterson to Cody Otterholt completed the scoring during the game.
With the win, Juanita improves to 4-2 in league play and 5-3 overall. The Kangs fell to 2-4 in league play and 4-4 overall. The Kangs will have one more shot at a winning record this season on Friday, as both teams play their crossover and final game of the year.
