SLIDESHOW: Sealth takes Westside honors beating West Seattle Wildcats in Huling Bowl

by Paul Moseley

The Chief Sealth Seahawks showed took the west side honors tonight as they won the 2014 Huling Bowl in dramatic fashion friday night, beating West Seattle 18-14.

West Seattle came in with intensity - having battled against bigger schools all year in the Metro Sound league - they opened the game on defense by sacking Sealth QB Weston Reed twice in the first series.

On their first possession, the Wildcats exploded off the line and set Fynniecko Glover up for a 15 yard run for the first score, going up 7-0.

In the 2nd quarter, it was the Wildcats again. Quarterback Joey Kane connected on a beautiful 40 yard pass to Carter Mensing. That set Glover up for his 2nd running TD from 5 yards out and it was 14-0 at half-time.

Chief Sealth finally converted in the top of the 4th quarter with a 35 yard run by Daron Camacho, closing the gap to 14-7. Then, at 6:21 in the 4th, Chief Sealth recovered a fumble on the West Seattle 25 yard line. 2 minutes later, Camacho was in the end zone again. A 2 point conversion by Reed put Chief Sealth on top 15-14.

SLIDESHOW: Wildcats sixth at Metro golf tourney

By Ed Shepherd

Golf, West Seattle Wildcats style.

This season the team experienced some good success, with a win for the boys team over league power O'Dea for the first time in at least a few years.

The Wildcats also posted a 7-2 league finish that was the best for some time, too, and, the good times on the fairways, greens, rough, sand bunkers and tees continue for two of its golfers who just qualified past the Metro Golf Tournament at the West Seattle Golf Course to the district tourney happening in Snohomish on Monday.

"Only Kevin Cuddy is a senior, and graduates," said Wildcats' coach, Velko Vitalich. "Everybodyelse comes back."

So the success should continue next season for the Wildcats, with the majority of the team coming back including Jack Page, Alex Nguyen and Tony Flores, who altogether in this Metro tourney helped the sixth place finish happen out of 15 3A Metro schools.

Also returning for the Wildcats, and largely helping the team notch that top six finish are the top two players for them, being Zach Gibson and Bailey Fuentes.
