At bottom, Viking Jayson Limar continued his string of double digit games, rushing for 98 yards.
Both squads seemed a bit tight at the start but soon loosened up. The Vikings scored first with a field goal on a stalled drive. Graham fired back minutes later but missed the extra point after touchdown. They led 6 - 3. In the second period the Vikings defense found its pace, and the offense found the holes, with Vikings receivers ending the first half leading 17 -6 and pushed hard in the second half to finish 31 - 6.
There was undoubtedly joy in ‘Valhalla.’

Dark Knights bowler Abhishek M. hurls his pitch to the waiting Monroe Wings batter Naveed Prashanth in the opening “Over” in the Dark Knights versus Wings tournament final on a foggy Saturday, Sept. 30 morning in Monroe at Lake Tye Park. Saturday’s games were this year’s final tournament for the Monroe Recreational Cricket League (MRCL), which had teams from the wider area including Lake Stevens, Redmond, Monroe, Sultan and Bothell participating.
The Wings, of Monroe, won by five runs, with a final score of 50/8 to 45/8.
A website report of this game on www.CricHeroes.in reports the best-performing batsman was Naveed Prashanth from the Wings, the best-performing bowler was Chandra of the Dark Knights and the Player of the Match was Susant of the Wings.
Each Over (similar to an inning) is 6 Bowls (pitches) from the Bowler to the Keeper (catcher). The rest of each team consists of 9 Fielders. The bowler throws the ball. Other members of the team are scattered in the field. A bowl is like a pitch. A batsman tries to hit the ball and if he does he sprints back and forth between the upright wickets to score runs. The batsman is stopped when the other team knocks off the sticks resting on top of the wicket, called bails, by chucking the ball at it.

ARCA WEST SERIES AT EVERGREEN SPEEDWAY
Michael Whitney photo

MONROE — Sean Hingorani won the NAPA Auto Parts 150 ARCA Menards West race at Evergreen Speedway in Monroe Saturday, Aug. 19 after leading most of the race.
Hingorani, age 16, drives the #15 Mobil 1 Toyota for Venturini Motorsports. This was his fourth ARCA West win of the year.
Tyler Reif, also age 16, got second in the #13 Ford. Kole Raz was third in the #5 Toyota.
Raz told the crowd he’s still pursuing the NASCAR dream.
Tanner Reif, who ran strong in the #16 NAPA Chevrolet, had a car problem that led him to hit the first turn wall on lap 82 of 150, bringing out the caution.
The ARCA Menards West series was once known as the NASCAR Winston West series in the 1990s. It’s about six rungs down the ladder from NASCAR Cup and is a key driver development series. The next rung up is the national ARCA series.
NASCAR uses the ARCA name for some of its lower- level racing classes after it bought the previously
independent ARCA stock car series in the late 2010s.

Monroe cheer team to compete at State

Photo courtesy MHS Cheer Coach Laira Bernhardt

MONROE — Monroe High’s coed competitive cheer team punched its ticket to the State cheer tournament this February.
They’ll be joining Cascade and Sultan’s cheer teams among those that have qualified into State.
The tournament will be Feb. 3-4 in Battle Ground, Washington.
Monroe cheer coach Laira Bernhardt said the team is excited and proud to make it on their first qualifying event. There are more than 35 athletes in the competitive cheer program.
“We have worked very hard for years to make it where we are now. We placed second at state last year in the co-ed divisions as well, we are hoping for another successful state trip this February,” Bernhardt said by email.
Monroe qualified into State by way of a Dec. 10 event.
Teams qualify by either scoring a minimum threshold of competition points or by having one of the top 50 scores of all performances in the season. If less than 50 teams qualify through these ways, the remaining teams are taken into State to make a field of 50 teams, the statewide high school cheer competition organization president Tara Wood said.
At the Dec. 10 event in Auburn, Monroe's team scored more than 10 points above the minimum qualifying threshold. -- Michael Whitney

Lake Stevens are State football champions

The Lake Stevens Vikings at last came out on top in Tacoma, taking the State 4A football title with a win from behind over Kennedy-Catholic. The Vikings reigned supreme at 24-22.
Kennedy Catholic rallied in the second quarter with 15 points to pick up the lead at the half, but Lake Stevens held Kennedy scoreless in the third quarter and made a field goal in the fourth quarter to bring in three points for the win, from the box score.
A year ago, Lake Stevens had a downbeat ride home as the losers in the 2021 title game to Graham Kapowsin.
On paper, the long slog to State was relatively painless for the No. 2 Vikings, capturing a 12-2 record for the season. But they had to defeat Graham Kapowsin, for one, in the State semifinals to even get their shot. Their two season losses were from teams from outside Wesco: By Garfield and a team from Oregon. ­
