PUYALLUP — Second-ranked Puyallup held Beamer to 148 total yards in a 30-7 victory Thursday night at Sparks Stadium in the South Puget Sound League South Division football opener for both schools.
It was the 22nd consecutive regular-season win by Puyallup (3-0 overall, 1-0 league).
The Vikings led 15-0 at halftime after touchdown runs by David Williams and Jeff Kiilsgaard.
They put the contest away in the fourth quarter on two long scoring plays — Brian Price's 55-yard pass to Mike Jarrett, and James Shafer's 64-yard run.
Going into the fourth quarter, the Titans (2-1, 0-1) had held Puyallup to fewer than 150 total yards.
Shafer finished with 103 yards on 10 carries.
Puyallup running back/defensive back Aaron Brown, a transfer from Emerald Ridge who left the Vikings' game against Kentwood last week with an ankle injury, saw limited action and had a 23-yard interception return in the second quarter.
Junior quarterback Dade Glaser scored Beamer's touchdown in the fourth quarter on a 1-yard run. Beamer beat Jefferson and Decatur in its first two games.

At Federal Way Stadium, Jefferson freshman Trenton Pinson returned the second-half kickoff 80 yards for the deciding touchdown as the Raiders (1-2, 1-0) won their league opener. Pinson also intercepted a pass. Jefferson quarterback Taylor Stark completed 16 of 30 passes for 168 yards, with TD throws of 6 and 27 yards to Angelo Harris. Kent-Meridian (0-3, 0-1) was held to 118 total yards, 97 on the ground.
Auburn Mountainview 14, Bonney Lake 6
At Auburn Memorial Stadium, Austin Williams returned the opening kickoff 89 yards for a score and intercepted a pass as the Lions (2-1, 1-0) won their league opener. The 5-foot-7, 160-pound senior also had 44 yards on three receptions. Dan Weppler scored the winning touchdown in the third quarter on a 13-yard catch from Watson Togialua, who had 110 yards on 12-of-21 passing and 110 yards on 17 carries. Senior free safety Colin Carpenter got his fourth interception of the season for Mountainview. Nathan Hyres caught a 32-yard pass from Cash Henningsen for the only score for Bonney Lake (1-2, 0-1).
Mount Rainier 23, Tyee 12
At Highline Stadium, the Rams (1-2, 1-0) overcame 306 passing yards by Caleb Tuani of Tyee (1-2, 0-1) to win the league opener for both teams. Tuani, a senior, completed only 11 of 23 throws, but had some long connections, including an 82-yard TD strike to Malcom Garrison. Junior quarterback Craig Robinson of Mount Rainier completed 12 of 21 passes for 173 yards, with scoring throws of 30 and 29 yards to sophomore Ezon James and 22 to Justin Champion. Dionte Cadogan carried 15 times for 122 yards for the Rams.
• As if top-ranked Bellevue didn't have enough weapons, the Wolverines have discovered another in kicker Doug Harrell.
The senior, in his first year of football, nailed a 47-yard field goal last week against Mount Si. He also booted four touchbacks on five kickoffs.
Harrell scored 17 goals last spring as a junior on Bellevue's soccer team, and was named a KingCo 3A first-team forward.
The state field-goal record, 62 yards, was set in 1929 by Kelly Imhoff of Kent. The modern-era record is 59, accomplished twice, most recently by Randy Jones of Spokane's Ferris in 1994.
Bellevue (2-0) plays at Issaquah (2-0) at 7:30 tonight.
