THE ISSAQUAH PRESS WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 2, 2009 C3 Skyline FROM PAGE C1 situations all night. He finished with 221 yards after completing 16 of 31 passes. He threw three interceptions. Receiver Connor Brandt caught five passes for 87 yards; Kasen Williams had four catches for 45 yards. Skyline led 21-10 at the half, after Heaps tossed an 11-yard touchdown pass to Brandt with 17 seconds remaining in the sec- ond. Bothell kicked a 41-yard field goal and scored a touch- down in the third quarter to make it 21-19. After Skyline's Nick Washburn scored an eight- yard touchdown to go up 28-19, the Cougars came back with a 65- yard scoring drive to start the fourth quarter. Kicker Sean Penberthy put the Spartans up 31-26 with a 32-yard field goal with less than five min- utes left. The Skyline defense did the rest to preserve the win. It held Bothell's star running back, Luke Proulx, to just 48 yards on 21 carries. Defensive back Evan Zeger intercepted a Muller pass with 2:44 remaining. "We just had to do our jobs. Whenever they started getting big plays is when we stopped doing our jobs," DeMatteo said. "We came out and we just had to play as hard as we could. We knew they were going to give us a fight." Taylor said although he would have liked to face Bothell in the state championship, he was happy with how the team has refocused for the title game. "I wish it didn't have to end (for Bothell), to be honest," he said. "But KingCo was well-represented and hopefully we'll represent very well next week."

Football FROM PAGE C1 Second-team selections for Is- saquah were quarterback Ryan Bergman, wide receiver Adam Dondoyano and Finch. Dondoyano also received second-team honors as a corner back, and Finch was selected as an offensive guard. Bergrnan, a first-year starter, had an incredible year for the Ea- gles. He probably would have been selected as the league's No. 1 quarterback except for Heaps, who is recognized as one of the best in the nation. Bergman led KingCo in passing with 2,074 yards and tossed 22 touchdown passes. He broke several individ- ual game marks during the sea- son. Earning honorable mention for the Eagles were tight end Eric Lemke, kicker Gavin Schumaker, defensive lineman Jay Deines, out- side linebacker Austin Richert and safety Mitchell Bait. Issaquah's Chris Bennett was selected as the Crest Division coach of the year. Rounding out the first-team of- fense was running back Cam Hunt (of Eastlake), wide receiver Dejuan Newton (of Garfield), offensive guard Alex Kairis (of Newport) and kicker Andrew Rohrbach (of Redmond). Other first-team defen- sive selections were lineman Patrick Taiwo (of Newport), cor- nerback Robbie Sharps (of East- lake), safety Kelby McCorkle (of Eastlake) and safety Michael Con- forto (of Redmond). Patdots earn top honors Running back Chandler Jenkins, wide receiver Jake Bainton, guard Coleton Langdon and center Alex Kaser earned first-team offensive team honors for Liberty. Tackle Dan Eck, outside linebacker Troy Solly and inside linebacker Cameron Talley earned first-team defensive honors. Jenkins was also selected as a corner back, and Bainton was picked as a safety on the first- team defense. Bainton led the league in interceptions with five, and in punting at 38.4. He was also selected as the league's special teams player of the year. Bainton was second in league receiving with 41 catches for 675 yards, and caught 10 touchdown passes. Jenkins was second in KingCo rushing with 1,024 yards, ran for 11 touchdowns and tied for third in receiving, with 34 catches for 447 yards. He also caught nine touchdown passes. He tied for first in the league for all-purpose yardage with 1,695 yards, and was second in league scoring with 126 points. Earning second-team all-league honors for the Patriots were quar- terback Trey Wheeler, offensive guard Jalen Robinson, kicker Dean Byron and safety Marcell Bell. Byron led the league in scor- ing for kickers with 59 points. Rounding out the first-team of- fense were quarterback Matt Ma- los (of Interlake), running back Brett Kirschner (of Interlake), wide receiver Rossco Castagno (of Mount Si), tight end Brad Bomberry (of Juanita), tackle Hank Thayer (of Bellevue), tackle Aaron Moetului (of Mount Si) and kicker Race Sciabica (of Bellevue). Completing the first-team de- fense were tackle Moore, outside linebacker John Kanongata'a (of Bellevue), inside linebacker Taylor Ragan (of Sammamish), corner- back Cole Graves (of Juanita), safety Kendrick Van Ackeran (of Bellevue) and punter Chris Lider (of Sammamish). Kirschner was selected as the league's offensive player of the year. Moore was tabbed as the league's lineman of the year. Kanongata'a was picked as the league's defensive player of the year.

Valach said his team's in- tense efforts in the fourth quar- ter won the game. "What changed the game is we had some momentum plays on offense, and then our de- fense just slammed the door out there," he said. Liberty now looks ahead to the rematch against Bellevue in the Tacoma Dome. Bellevue defeated Liberty 27- 21 Oct. 23. The heartbreaker marked Liberty's only loss of the season.
