ARLINGTON – Replacing a quarterback like Anthony Whitis is no easy task.

But Trent Nobach showed he was up to the challenge Friday night as Arlington whipped Stanwood 44-10 in a Wesco North 3A matchup.

Nobach was 18-for-27 for 188 yards and a 27-yard TD pass to Joseph Schmidt to lead the Eagles.

Schmidt caught four passes for 70 yards. Chase Petersen led the team with six receptions.

Arlington was also effective in the ground game, with Jacob Kramer again leading the way with 97 yards on 15 carries. Gavin Skyles added 91 yards on 10 carries.

Kramer scored from 6-yards out, and Cade Younger had a 50-yard punt return to put the Eagles up 13-0 after one quarter. Cole Cramer connected on a 27-yard field goal to make it 16-3 at halftime.

After Schmidt’s TD, Michael Tsoukalas scored on a 25-yard fumble recovery and return to power Arlington to a 30-3 lead.

Skyles and Jaden Roskelley each scored from 8-yards out in the fourth to bring the Eagles to 3-0 on the year.

Along with Tsoukalas’s heroics the defense stood out in other ways, holding Stanwood to 75 yards on 34 carries on the ground. Even though Wyatt Custer passed for 159 yards he gave up an interception, also to Tsoukalas, and only connected on 13 of 31 throws.

MARYSVILLE – Dylan Carson and Jordan Justice are turning into quite the one-two punch for Marysville-Pilchuck.

Carson ran for 139 yards and three TDs, and Justice added 109 yards to lead M-P to a 34-7 rout over Squalicum Friday.

Carson scored on runs of 28 and 3 yards to five M-P a 14-0 halftime lead.

Dillon Kuk scored on an 18-yard pass from QB Jake Elwood, and then Elwood scored on a 2-yard run to make it 28-0 after three periods.

Carson added a 19-yard TD run in the fourth.

M-P, which is 3-0, was led in receiving by Kuk, who grabbed five for 88 yards.

The Tomahawk defense was dominant, only giving up a score in the last 11 seconds.

Meanwhile, Marysville Getchell lost to Ferndale 41-14.

LAKEWOOD – Evergreen had to be asking itself, “Who are those guys?”

After leading 17-0 at halftime, Lakewood exploded for 41 points in the second half to beat the home team in a 2A matchup 41-17 to improve to 3-0 on the season.

Evergreen scored on a 79-yard pass, 97-yard blocked field goal and a field goal to take the lead.

But in the second half, Cougar QB Jared Taylor scored on runs of 58-, 38- and 8 yards. Landen Pruitt scored on a 6-yard pass from Taylor and then on a 2-yard run. Malik Dotson ended the turnaround with a 25-yard score.
