Renton rolls over Highline 42-6

Renton’s Royal Dotson-Goode reportedly ran for two touchdowns and threw for another in the win.

The Renton Indians picked up their third win of the season on Thursday, a 42-6 drubbing of the Highline Pirates at Renton Memorial Stadium.

Renton’s Royal Dotson-Goode reportedly ran for two touchdowns and threw for another in the win.

Renton opened the scoring in the first with a 7-yard TD run by Dotson-Goode, followed a few minutes later by a 47-yard pass-and-run for a touchdown from Taeleraye Green to Kayee Song. The first quarter ended with the score 14-0.

In the second, Dotson-Goode threw a 22-yard touchdown pass to Griffin Proctor and then ran for a 13-yard touchdown to give the Indians a 28-0 lead. However, Highline spoiled the shut-out with an 80-yard touchdown pass-and-run play with time running out in the second and the teams headed to the locker rooms with Renton up 28-6.

In the third, Renton scored again, this time on a 1-yard run by Isaiah Kenard to go up 35-6. Also in the third, Song intercepted a pass and ran it back 70 yards for his second touchdown of the day as the Indians went on to win the game 42-6.

Renton is now 3-5 overall and 2-4 in the South Puget Sound League with one game left to play. Renton will host White River at 7 p.m. Saturday at Renton memorial Stadium in their final regular season game of the year.
