The Washington Huskies defense quickly took control of the game denying the MSJ Warriors of a ground or air attack. It seemed that Husky defenders were in the face of the quarterback throughout the game, either in the pocket or when scrambling. The Huskies held Mission to just 101 yards (76 yards rushing).
This game may be a preview of a MVAL title contender this year as Husky quarterback Kyle Malpede completed 9 of 13 passes for 129 yards and two touchdowns. Kyle had no trouble finding his top receiver of the night, Brandon Sewell, with five receptions for 105 yards and two touchdowns. The first pass was a quick 25-yard strike that gave Washington a 7-0 lead with 10:25 left in the first quarter. The second touchdown was the result of a 27- yard pass that ended a great offensive drive, giving the Huskies a 34-0 lead with 8:36 left in the second quarter. Washington's Nate Woudstra also had a great night with 12 carries for 77 yards and his teammate, Eddie Adams, got 60 yards on 11 runs and scored two touchdowns.
