Top performer: Dylan Morris, Graham-Kapowsin
19 of 24 passing for 237 yards, 3 touchdowns — in 35-10 win over Bellarmine Prep
Graham-Kapowsin 35, Bellarmine Prep 10: If the Eagles continue to get this passing game to complement their already lethal ground attack, then it won’t just be Bellarmine Prep having a tough time.
Never miss a local story.
Dylan Morris threw just five incompletions, finishing 19 of 24 for 237 yards and three touchdowns as Graham-Kapowsin (7-1) defeated the Lions (6-2) on Thursday at Art Crate Field and clinched no less than second seed from the 4A SPSL to the district playoffs.
Morris completed scoring passes to three receivers: Tyler Wheeler, Brandon Becker and Eian Olmos.
Olmos had six catches for 89 yards and the final touchdown — with 11 minutes left in the fourth quarter — which put Graham-Kapowsin out of Bellarmine Prep’s reach.
But then there was the Eagles’ running game, as well. Micah Smith had 25 carries for 158 yards and two touchdowns to push his season total to 1,475 yards through eight games.
