Look who's 4-0.

The Mount Rainier Rams improved their football season record to that lofty mark by hammering Hazen, 27-6, in their homecoming game played at Highline Memorial on Friday.
Mount Rainier now towers at 2-0 in North Puget Sound League action.

"It's a good start, but we've got a lot of work to do," said Rams head coach Tremain Mack. "The kids played hard, but we had too many penalties and we've got to clean that up. We have a long ways to go."
Mount Rainier received six penalties for a total of 45 yards in the first half and nine flags for a total of 95 yards in the second half.

But the Rams overcame all of that to win their fourth game out of the gate.
Mount Rainier got on the scoreboard first with 11:17 to play in the second quarter as Joe Grantham booted a 27-yard field goal through the uprights.

Rams quarterback J.J. Young ran around the right side on a keeper for a 23-yard touchdown at 8:10 to go before the half and Grantham's kick for the point after was good for a 10-0 lead.

Garfield turned what had been a close battle between two previously undefeated football teams into a 52-9 rout in a hurry Friday.

The Bulldogs from central Seattle only led West Seattle, 24-9, as late as 3:03 remaining in the third quarter -- then suddenly led by the final margin by 9:15 to go in the fourth after four quick touchdowns.

West Seattle fell to 2-1 with the loss on its home field at the Southwest Athletic Complex as Garfield improved to 3-0.
The Wildcats looked like they would take the lead early Friday.

They marched all the way to the Garfield 17, only to have a 34-yard field goal attempt by Mathias Fink go wide left with 4:33 to go in the first quarter.

The Bulldogs jumped ahead 7-0 at the 3:32 mark instead.

West Seattle then had a drive stall at the Garfield five, with a resulting 20-yard field goal try by Fink blocked at 10:07 left in the second quarter.

Fink was successful from 42 yards out at 6:09 left in the second quarter to cut the margin to 7-3.
