South bulldozes Vikings, 41-12

Junior running back Chad Fowler rushed for 252 yards and scored four times as South Kitsap rolled over North Kitsap 41-12 Friday night.

Fowler, who started the year as the sixth running back on the Wolves depth chart, found plenty of running room behind an offensive line that was as dominate as could be. Fowler picked up his yards on 30 carries while South finished the night rushing for 424 on 53 tries.

Add in 116 yards passing from senior quarterback Kyle Pease and South racked up 540 yards of total offense.

And while the offense was only stopped by its own mistakes, the Wolves committed three turnovers, the defense kept the Vikings in check, allowing 188 total yards, 82 of those coming on the ground.

Fowler scored on runs of 9, 22, 9 and 14 yards to solidify his roll as the team's No. 1 back. Pease, who has been the Wolves main offensive threat through the first four games, completed 3 of 5 passes, including an 80-yard flea-flicker to Monte Enyeart on the game's first play. Stephan Tucker closed the scoring with an 8-yard run.

The win moves South to 3-2 overall and 3-0 in Narrows League Bridge Division play and all but assures the Wolves of a top three finish in the league which would send them to a winner-to-state, loser-out game, their first since 2003. North dropped to 2-3 and 1-2.

South plays host to Olympic Friday night.
