The Eastside Catholic Crusaders and Rainier Beach Vikings faced off with the Metro Mountain league title on the line. E-C and the Vikings took a little bit to get going but the Crusaders hit the board first and never trailed. Rainier Beach was able to stay close with 1 great drive and then opportunistic defense and special teams. E-C really didn’t put the game away until the 4th quarter.
