King's won the battle of unbeatens over Lakewood for its first Cascade Conference title Friday night at Woolsey Stadium in Shoreline.
The Knights beat the visiting Cougars in a 55-42 shootout.
Senior quarterback Billy Green, a BYU-commit, completed 23-of-34 passes for 312 yards and six touchdowns to five different receivers. He threw TD passes of 81, 34, 33, 24, 9 and 1-yard in the game as King's pulled away in the second half.
Trevor Hansen added 12 carries for 96 yards and a touchdown for King's. Green had touchdown passes of 81, 34, 33, 24, 9 and 1 yard in the game.
The long-awaited showdown featured King's the No. 1-ranked team in Class 1A and Lakewood, the No. 3-ranked team in Class 2A in the state.
"It gives us a lot of momentum going into the playoffs knowing that we just beat a top-five 2A team," Green told the Everett Herald. "They're a great team. This is a big win for our team. The whole team has a lot more confidence going in knowing we can compete with these big time teams. And we've done it all year, Lynden, Archbishop (Murphy), Lakewood now. The team's just done a great job."
