Sumner Ends Monroe’s Playoff Run

lewisAdrian Johnson photo

For the second consecutive year, the Bearcats playoff run at State was halted by Sumner.
A 35-point second half performance from Sumner was too much for the Bearcats to
overcome in the state playoff game Saturday, Nov. 18. The final score was 14 Monroe, 56 Sumner.
After the game Monroe head coach Michael Bumpus said, “(the other team) executed and we didn’t. That’s what it comes down to. When you throw four picks, you’re not going to win a football game. And (Sumner) made big plays. When you’re turning over the ball and allowing big plays, you will have to dig yourself out of a heck of a hole.”
Above, a stubborn Sumner defense stops Monroe running back Isaiah Lewis (19) on fourth down and two from the Sumner five-yard line. Lewis carried the ball 35 times and 165 yards and one touchdown in the loss.
One of the turnovers happened when a pass from quarterback Jaedyn Prewitt was
bobbled, resulting in an 85-yard pick by Sumner during second-half action.

Monroe 21, Puyallup 14
Over the years the Bearcats have come close, losing in six state playoff games, but this year try number seven was the magic number. The game against the Puyallup Vikings was a defensive battle with each team making key stops in the red zone before the end zone. Monroe’s defense held the Vikings to 14 points. The contest ended on a defensive note when Monroe junior Skylar Barr intercepted a Puyallup pass on fourth down and two at
the Bearcat five-yard line. Monroe’s Ricky Baker, Isaiah Cole and Isaiah Lewis each added touchdowns for the Bearcats in the victory. Lewis rushed for 195 yards and a touchdown on 45 carries. Monroe quarterback Jaedyn Prewitt threw for 193 yards.
At left, Monroe’s Josh Jerome (55) and Austin Steltz (57) stop
