Wolves lose finale to Cascade Christian / Football

The Coupeville High School football team — what was left of it — lost its season finale to sixth-ranked Cascade Christian 70-6 Saturday, Nov. 4, at Sumner’s Sunset Stadium.

The league champion Cougars from Puyallup upped their conference record to 7-0 and are 9-1 overall.

Coupeville started the season with two wins, then the injuries started to take their toll.

The Wolves (1-5, 3-6) finished the season on a five-game losing streak.

Coupeville faced Cascade Christian without five two-way starters, all skill players. Among the missing were the team’s leading receiver and the four top running backs.

The Wolves picked up their touchdown on a pass from Hunter Downes to Jake Hoagland. Downes finished his career with 35 TD tosses, a new school record.

Cascade Christian stacked up its points early, scoring 33 in the first quarter and 37 in the second.

The Cougars have qualified for the state playoffs in 13 of the past 14 seasons, winning two state titles and finishing second three times.

Next weekend they open the state tournament against Nooksack Valley.
