Football: Eisenhower's Cassel breaks leg in loss to Eastmont

October 6, 2012 

Eisenhower quarterback Kolney Cassel broke his leg Friday in a 34-9 loss to Eastmont in Yakima.

Cassel, who had thrown for 1,425 yards and 19 touchdowns in five games this season, was sacked behind the line and helped off the field. X-rays later revealed a broken bone in his leg, according to the Yakima Herald.

Cassel was a three-year starter for the Cadets.

Into the record books: Mount Si kicker Cameron VanWinkle made a 30-yard field goal against Lake Washington to set the state record in career field goals made.

VanWinkle has made 34 in 39 career games, passing Burlington-Edison’s Andrew Furney who made 33 in 38 games. Furney now kicks for Washington State and made a 60-yarder earlier this season.

Central Valley’s Austin Rehkow is also moving up the list, though he didn’t make any this week. He is tied for third with Richland High’s Kevan Welsch at 24 made from 1987-89.

Climbing the ladder:Skyline’s Max Browne threw three touchdown passes in a 64-17 rout of Ballard. The passes give Browne 117 for his career, breaking a tie with Kansas quarterback Jake Heaps (Skyline, 2009).

Prosser graduate Kellen Moore holds the record at 173 career touchdowns. In fact four of the five quarterbacks ahead of Browne are from Prosser or DeSales. Besides Moore, Jordan Durbin threw for 124 from 2005-08 for the Mustangs. DeSales’ Brian Lindgren (1996-98) threw for 162 and T.J. Conley (2000-03) threw for 125.

Streak breaker:The Washington School for the Deaf defeated Portland Lutheran to end a 24-game losing streak Thursday with a 38-28 victory.
