Foss 28, Shelton 0 (Tacoma) - Chris “Scooby” Reynolds made a leaping catch on a bullet from Isaiah Littlejohn for a 22 yard touchdown, jumped a Jake Beck pass and took the interception back 62 yards for the touchdown, intercepted another pass and downed a punt an inch from the goal line to lead Foss to a 28-0 win over Shelton on Friday night at Mount Tahoma Stadium.
The final score was overshadowed by a scary injury to Shelton offensive lineman Daniel Diaz. He was taken to a Tacoma hospital after he was taken off of the field on a stretcher. No word on his condition at this time.
Foss dominated the first quarter capping off a nearly nine minute drive when Littlejohn uncorked a rocket over the middle that appeared to be on the way to a Highclimbers interception before Reynolds got one hand on the ball high above his head and pulled it in for the 22 yard touchdown. The Falcons limited Shelton to just six plays over the first 12 minutes.
The Highclimbers were plagued by turnovers in the second quarter and the Falcons capitalized for 21 points. Backup quarterback John Moore started the scoring when he lined up at fullback, received the pitch from Littlejohn and found Nick Burton down field for a 50 yard touchdown pass.
Down a manageable 13-0, the Highclimbers were moving the ball and threatening when Reynolds read a slow developing quick out and stepped in front of the pass and took it to the house. Littlejohn rushed untouched into the corner of the end zone for the two point conversion to give Foss a 21-0 lead.
Following a Falcons punt with less than a minute remaining in the half, Foss recovered a fumble at the Highclimbers 14 yard line and Littlejohn quickly found Alonzo Jones over the middle for the final score of the night.
Shelton dropped to 0-2 in the 3A Narrows League and 0-5 overall while Foss improved to 2-1 in league and 4-1 overall.
