Klahowya Eagles upset by North Kitsap Vikings
The Klahowya Eagles’ chance to have an early season record as good as the Seattle Seahawks was upset last week by the North Kitsap Vikings.
The Vikings defeated the Eagles 34-29 for their first win of the season and first conference game at North Kitsap Stadium.
The Eagles nearly pulled out the road win, scoring 20 unanswered points to close to within five points twice, 29-23 and 34-29, before North Kitsap’s defense held firm.
The difference between the Vikings’ win over the Eagles and the 58-0 loss to Bishop Blanchet the week before, may have been the week’s practice, said their head coach Jeff Weible.
“Offensively, we mixed it up quite a bit,” Weible said. “We had a really good week of practice — changed some things up a bit.”
Eagles Coach Dan Ericson did not return calls to comment on the game. Klahowya plays Kingston at home at 5 p.m. Friday. Kingston is 2 and 1, which ties the Eagles’ record.
