Bearcats overwhelm Knights 56-7 | Football

Kamiak kept battling against Monroe, but the Bearcats were too much for the Knights to handle.

Monroe overwhelmed Kamiak 56-7 in the Wesco 4A season opener for both teams Friday night at Monroe High School.

“They are a fine team,” Kamiak coach Dan Mack said of the Bearcats, who improved to 3-0 overall. “I thought they controlled the line of scrimmage. They controlled the tempo of the game. We had a hard time matching up with them.”

The Bearcats took a 21-0 lead in the first quarter with running back JJ Jerome scoring on a pair of TD runs. Monroe extended its lead to 42-0 in the second quarter, as quarterback Zach Zimmerman threw three touchdown passes.

Senior running back Josh Binda, who played his first game of the season, scored the Knights’ lone touchdown in the second quarter. The Bearcats added a touchdown in the third and fourth quarters.

“We’re a young team,” Mack said. “We have a number of kids that they’re getting their sea legs under themselves. They kept battling the entire game.”

The Knights came out of Friday’s game a little banged up, Mack said, but they also are hoping to get some players back for Friday’s showdown with district rival Mariner. The Knights (1-2 overall) host the Marauders at 7 p.m., Sept. 23, at Goddard Stadium.

Mariner (1-2) also struggled last week, falling to Lake Stevens 48-7 in its league opener.

“You can throw out the records,” Mack said of the match-up. “We know we’re going to have to be at our best. We’re looking forward to a good week of practice.”
