Capital was forced to punt on four of its first five possessions in the first half and never found much of a rhythm.The loss puts the Cougars at 3-1 league, tied with North Kitsap and North Thurston for second place. We face first place Timberline next week. Hopefully Capital can get healthy soon--otherwise, we'll have a short stint in the playoffs. Right now every win is critical.
The Vikings (5-1 overall, 3-1 league) first score came after a defensive stop in the second quarter.
DeShano ran up the middle on a draw play and broke a tackle from Joseph Ingman for a 41-yard touchdown run at 11:21 of the second quarter. It was the only score in the first half.
Zach Sampson added a 43-yard field goal to open the second half and give NK a 10-0 lead.
Later in the third quarter, Capital's Alex Everson fumbled a handoff and the ball trickled into the end zone. NK lineman Jacob Glushko fell on the ball for the score and a 17-0 lead with 1:11 left in the third.
"It was a big game — for all of us," NK coach Steve Frease said. "Capital's pretty banged up, and we made some breaks tonight."
