The Arlington Eagles took on one of the top ranked football teams in Washington state as they welcomed the Graham-Kapowsin Eagles to their home field, on Sept. 29.

Arlington got off to a quick start as they halted Graham-Kapowsin's first drive with an interception in the back of the end zone. With this swing in momentum Arlington managed to rattle off 14 uncontested points through the beginning of the second quarter. After this initial burst, Graham-Kapowsin went on a run of their own, as they scored 35 uncontested points with less than three minutes left in the fourth quarter. Arlington managed to attack the end zone through the air before the game ended, but it wasn't enough as they lost by a score of 35-21.

"We came in focusing on ourselves and putting an emphasis on getting better after that Ferndale loss. I think we did, played tough and got better against a very good team tonight. Now it's time to look forward to our next game because all the guys are fired up to play M-P and get back into league play," said Arlington Head Coach Greg Dailer.

Anthony Whitis, junior quarterback, had a great game for the Eagles as he went 19 for 33, with 227 passing yards and three touchdowns. Cambell Hudson, his leading receiver, caught five balls for 81 yards, one touchdown and also contributed on defense with an interception. On the ground, Gabriel Green rushed 14 times for a team-high 88 yards.

On the defensive side, Trevor Kazen led Arlington in solo tackles with seven, as well as two assisted tackles and an interception. Payton Bastien also contributed heavily from the linebacker position as he had five solo tackles, seven assisted tackles and two tackles for loss.

If you want to come out and support the Arlington Eagles, their homecoming game will be held on Friday, Oct. 6, at 7 p.m., as they take on the Marysville-Pilchuck Tomahawks.
