Woodinville Wins Tune-Up by Topping Federal Way 38-0

  • Written by Derek Johnson
Noah Stifle passed for five touchdowns and Joey Johnson rushed for 102 yards as Woodinville crushed Federal Way 38-0, in a regional playoff game last Friday night at Pop Keeney Stadium.
 
The strangest part was losing three fumbles in the first half made no difference to the Falcons. Woodinville (9-1) took command as Stifle tossed four TD passes in the first half to four different receivers (Carter Smith, Camden Pilukas, Cage Schenck and Jackson Messmer). The Falcons led 28-0 going into halftime.

Colleen Ochs was well aware of Woodinville’s postseason drought. The 17-year old was just ten years old the last time the Falcons won a playoff match.

Freak injury brings Frustrating end to Season

  • Written by Derek Johnson
Last week was a rough one for the Lady Falcons. A freakish injury to team captain Lauren Drews hampered Woodinville’s chances at Districts last weekend at Mary Wayte Pool. As a result, the already undermanned Falcon squad lost its shot at sending anyone to State.  
 
“It was difficult and devastating,” Woodinville coach George Sayah said.
 
Adding irony to the mix, the injury wasn’t even related to swimming. Earlier in the week, Drews rolled her ankle while at home. At first, the senior thought she was going to be okay. She attempted a workout. But as swelling increased, Drews went to the doctor. The prognosis was a Class 3 tear of a ligament. Her prep career was over.
