Game Recap – Skyview 42 Bellarmine Prep 17
Written by Bryan Levesque on November 20, 2011
Skyview RB Parker Henry ran for 235 yards and 4 touchdowns on 33 carris leading the Storm to a 42-17 victory over #1 Bellarmine Prep to advance to the 4A Semifinals.
Trailing #1 Bellarmine Prep 17-14 midway through the 3rd quarter with their spread offense sputtering, Skyview turned to RB Parker Henry and the run game which produced 4 second half rushing touchdowns in a 42-17 home win over Bellarmine Prep Saturday Night at Boggs Field. The #9 ranked Storm played to a scoreless tie in the first quarter with the visiting Lions. Early in the second quarter the states top ranked 4A school struck first when QB Sefo Liufau scrambled around and found University of Washington bound WR Michael Rector in the corner of the end zone for an early 7-0 lead. Late in the quarter now down 10-0, Skyview got on the board when QB Kieran McDonagh hit WR David Garlington down the sidelines for 62 yard touchdown pass, McDonagh’s first of two passing touchdowns on the night. Skyview almost went into the break with the lead when McDonagh hooked up with WR Reiley Henderson on a 52 yard pass down to the Lions 2, however the clock expired before Henderson could get out of bonds. In the third quarter Skyview took the lead on their opening drive when McDonagh hit Mo Morrison from 22 yards out to go up 14-10, however Bellarmine Prep retook the lead on their next possession when Liufau ran in from 4 yards out. McDonagh threw an interception on the Storm’s next possession but the defense held on a 4th down attempt, keeping the score at 17-14 Prep. Skyview then changed up their game plan and went to their jumbo goal line set and dared the Lions to stop Parker Henry. They couldn’t. The Strom ran plays with the same tempo as normal, or maybe even faster, but just keep running power with Henry, the state’s leading 4A rusher. The new look completely changed the game and Skyview simply physically dominated the rest of the game. Henry ran 184 of his 235 yards in the second half and scored all 4 of his touchdowns as Skyview turned a close game into a blowout 42-17 Skyview victory. Henry finished the game with 235 rushing yards on 33 carries and the 4 scores while QB Kieran McDonagh passed for 266 yards and 2 touchdowns. WR David Garlington caught 3 passes for 84 yards and the one touchdown while Reiley Henderson added 4 for 82 yards just missing the second quarter score. Prep RB Isaiah Flynn had an excellent first half and finished the game with 167 rushing yards on 32 carries. Liufau was held to 10 of 28 passing for 124 yards with the touchdown and 2 interceptions, by Henderson and Morrison.
Skyview improves their record to 10-2 on the season with the win. The Storm will play Lake Stevens (12-0) at The Tacoma Dome Saturday, time TBD in the Semifinals of the WIAA State Playoffs.
I played for Coach Boggs for two years...i was new to the state of Washington at the time, I was a troubled youth, and I was lost, he helped give me direction in my troubled life....i remember when he first told me I was playing varsity my junior year, it was one of the happiest...
Family works in Longview....and they don't want to move to Clark County! He is getting plenty of attention now, and it will just increase next season.
He also carries a 3.85 GPA - and the academics are taking notice too...stay tuned....
Did someone really say Heritage would be fifth in the standings?? Even behind Battlegroung who just got lucky they stayed in the game last year. Heritage has young talent returning. The fastest kid in the district is on their team and the QB is a hard worker don't count them out so much....
