Beamer ends with win over Kentlake

Mirror staff

A 4-6 record doesn’t sound too impressive. But when you’re playing your first season in the rugged Class 4A South Puget Sound League, two games under .500 looks a lot better.

The Todd Beamer football team ended their inaugural season in, what many think, is the toughest league in the state with a 20-14 victory over the Kentlake Falcons Thursday night at French Field in a non-league crossover match up.

Last year, the Titans played an independent schedule and won only one game over Oregon’s Liberty High School, who was also a first-year school. This year, Beamer beat Emerald Ridge (6-4), Decatur (2-8), Rogers (5-5) and Kentlake.

Thursday against the Falcons (3-7), Beamer intercepted a Ryan Voelkel pass in their endzone with just over a minute remaining in the game to seal the victory. Kentlake drove down to the 18-yard line before the Voelkel interception.

Beamer held a commanding 20-7 lead before the Falcons drove 60 yards for their final touchdown with 2:45 left in the fourth quarter.

Titan sophomore quarterback Cole Bixenman finished with three touchdown passes, two to senior Mike Waller and one to Matt Hart.
