The Evco 2A is working toward a showdown on October 28th between the Tumwater T-Birds and Chehalis Bearcats. Both teams kept their league unbeaten streaks in tact on Friday night. Here are the current standings and it’s important to point out that Tumwater and Rochester will play one less league game than the other 4 members of the league. Rochester elected not to play Tumwater due to the known mismatch between the 2 teams and the league approved the decision. So the Championship will actually be determined by number of losses and not wins. This makes Tumwater at 2-0 in league play and WF West at 3-0 tied for 1st. The top 3 will crossover and play the GSHL’s top 3 for a chance to get to state.
Here are the current league standings:

(Tumwater, WA) Since their shocking loss to Steilacoom 2 weeks ago the T-Birds have won 2 in a row by a combined 111-14. Friday night the Birds put up their 2nd 70+ point night on the Bobcats.
The T-Birds would jump out to a 35-0 lead in the 1st half and they did it all on the ground. QB Noah Andrews ran it in from the 13 for the 1st TD. Jakob Holbrook would then sprint in from the 29 for the 1st of his 2nd TD. Keson Waller got into the act next followed by Rico Spiegner with the 4th TD and 4th different running back.
This trend would continue with Zane Murphy to make it 35-0. The Bobcats would break through on a spectacular 68-yard run by QB Kylan Touch to make the score 35-7. Tumwater wouldn’t wast time and answered with another Holbrook TD followed by Spiegner and then Weller to make 56-7 at halftime.
Weller and a 6th running back Mason Burbidge would add 2nd half touchdowns while Touch would pick-off a pass and return it for the 2nd Aberdeen score.
