FOOTBALL: Federal Way gets back on track with blowout win over Bethel
The big plays were back for the Federal Way High School football team Thursday night. A week after dropping the program's first South Puget Sound League South Division game since 2010, the Eagles dominated the Bethel Braves Thursday, 45-18, at Federal Way Memorial Stadium.
Federal Way's dynamic offense tallied five touchdowns in the first three quarters of 49 yards or longer against Bethel (1-3). The victory comes after Graham-Kapowsin beat the Eagles, 39-21, last Thursday. Federal Way has won the last two SPSL South Division championships.
The Eagles (3-1) bolted out to a quick 19-0 lead after the first quarter on a 49-yard touchdown pass from senior Keenan Curran to Chico McClatcher, a 72-yard Curran run and a 52-yard touchdown pass from McClatcher to Max Lautalo.
After a 44-yard Bethel field goal made it 19-3, Federal Way tallied the next three touchdowns to take a commanding 38-3 lead into the fourth quarter. McClatcher scored on a 67-yard run, Curran had a 96-yard touchdown run and Travis Martin caught a 5-yard pass from D'Jimon Jones.
Curan added his third touchdown run of the night in the fourth quarter from 19 yards out to finalize Federal Way's scoring barrage. Bethel tallied a pair of fourth-quarter touchdowns.
The Eagles will travel to Sparks Stadium on Oct. 4 to take on the Puyallup Vikings.
