SLIDESHOW: West Seattle falls after 3 quarters to physical, fast Rainier Beach

by Paul Moseley

The West Seattle Wildcats hosted the Rainier Beach Vikings at the Southwest Athletic Complex (SWAC) for a varsity football match-up on Friday Sept. 26. Rainier Beach came in with a 2-1 record and a very physical team as West Seattle looked to get their first win of the season.

In an aggressive game that saw Rainier Beach walking backward 4 times in the first half for personal fouls, both teams went after each other for three quarters of football - but it was Rainier Beach who performed in the fourth and went home with a big victory.

Rainier Beach put up the first two scores of the game. In a drive that seemed to put the Wildcats on their heels, Rainier Beach took the opening kick-off and marched straight down the field - capping the drive with a 30 yard run to go up 8-0.
