VANCOUVER — Drew Thompson ran 13 yards for the tiebreaking touchdown in the fourth quarter, giving Kennedy Catholic a 20-14 Class 3A first-round football victory over Columbia River on Saturday at Kiggins Bowl.
Columbia River had tied the score at 14-14 after Clayton Frank's 1-yard TD run four minutes into the final quarter.
Colin Cossette scored the other Kennedy touchdowns on runs of 11 and 2 yards. The score was tied 7-7 at halftime.
The fourth-ranked Lancers (9-1) are in the quarterfinals for the first time since 2006, when they were state runners-up after an overtime loss to Bellevue.
Kennedy Catholic will face second-ranked Mount Si next weekend. The teams met in Week 1, with Mount Si winning 30-0.
At Mead 41, Newport 14
At Albi Stadium in Spokane, Davian Barlow ran for three short TDs as fifth-ranked Mead (10-1) finished the No. 7 Knights (7-4). Eric Rodan's 38-yard scoring run late in the first quarter for Newport left the Knights trailing only 14-7. But Mead pulled away behind a dominating ground game. In the quarterfinals, the Panthers will play unranked Auburn, which beat Eastmont 20-7 Friday night.
At Camas 62, Arlington 6
Vincente Huber scored touchdowns nine seconds apart late in the second quarter, including an interception return for a score, as the No. 3 Papermakers (11-0) crushed the Eagles (5-6). Camas plays No. 2 Federal Way next weekend in the quarterfinals in a matchup of unbeaten teams.
At University 34, O'Dea 6
Jeff Beaty ran for two TDs and threw a 78-yard scoring pass as the unranked Titans (7-4) from Spokane rolled past the No. 5 Irish (8-3). O'Dea rushed for 303 yards, including 114 by Myles Gaskin and 104 by Pierre LeDorze. But the Irish lost two of their three fumbles.

At South Sound Stadium in Lacey, Austin Joyner carried 18 times for 222 yards with touchdown runs of 73 and 11 yards, and caught a scoring pass as the No. 10 Tomahawks (9-2) beat the No. 7 Blazers (9-2). Jake Luton had a pair of TD throws, including a 55-yard strike to Kyle Nobach, and Deion Stell added a 42-yard touchdown run for the Tomahawks.

King's 28, at Hoquiam 13
Chris Jenkins made 12 tackles and Billy Green passed for 232 yards and two TDs as the top-ranked, unbeaten Knights (11-0) handed the No. 4 Grizzlies (10-1) their first defeat. Green was 20 of 30 with two interceptions, and also carried 14 times for 72 yards. Trevor Hansen added 68 yards on 11 carries.
"In the first half, we had some drives where we were open, but also had some dropped balls and had to punt a few times," King's coach Jim Shapiro said. "We got all dialed in and produced as the game went on."
King's will meet Montesano in the quarterfinals.
