Coach Yarrington addresses the West Seattle Wildcats at their game vs. Franklin High School Friday, Sept. 14. West Seattle crushed Franklin 46-0 and the game ended early, called with the mercy rule.
SLIDESHOW: West Seattle rolls over Franklin 46-0
It all started with an onside kick recovered by Blue that turned into a quick score. That scenario continued throughout the first half. The Quakers couldn’t get anything going and they fell farther behind with the half time score 40-0.
West Seattle’s first possession in the second half resulted in a touchdown and a 46-0 score- the extra point was unsuccessful.
Franklin continued to be stymied by the West sider’s defense and could never get on track. At the end of three quarters with the score 46-0 the mercy rule was used to call the game at that point.
Coach Yarrington had these words after the game. “We’re 1-0 after the first game and the objective is to go out and win the league and you have to win the first game to go all the way”.
This was a payback game for the west sider’s losing to Franklin last year at the SWAC.
West Seattle plays Cleveland at the SWAC on September 21st.
