Football playoff roundup: Browne, Skyline start fast

Let's take a quick trip around the state in the first week of postseason play.

Class 4A

Skyline QB Max Browne collected 263 yards and five TDs to lead the Spartans to an easy 59-21 win over Monroe. His primary receiver was Nick Sblendorio, who hauled in five balls for 123 yards and three scores. The Spartans move on to face Mead this weekend... I liked Skyview in its game against Issaquah because of its powerful offense. That held true as Kieran McDonagh racked up more than 300 passing yards and Parker Henry added 123 on the ground in a 47-17 win... Olympia ended the HS career of Puyallup senior OL Joshua Garnett in a 38-21 victory. Spenser Killman was a workhorse with 231 yards and three scores to guide Olympia... Bethel scored a mini upset of Bothell behind a late 30-yard FG from Ryan Smolko, 24-22...

Class 3A

Lakes got more of a fight than expected but rebounded to put away Nathan Hale, 56-21. Levonte Littlejohn (four rushing TDs) helped offset a big game by Hale's Markeith Harris (251 yards, 2 TDs) as the Lancers claimed their 11th win of the fall... Teré Calloway predicted improved play from Seattle Prep after his team fell to O'Dea in Week 8. He backed it up by reaching pay dirt three times as Prep downed Timberline, 42-28.

Class 2A/1A

Lakewood RB Donovan Evans notched a school-record 299 yards to go with three touchdowns to lead the Cougars over Burlington-Edison, 55-0. The win gained some revenge for Lakewood, which fell to B-E in last year's playoffs... Michael Amsel Jr. accounted for four TDs to power Chelan to a 51-14 defeat of Riverside.
