Garfield turned what had been a close battle between two previously undefeated football teams into a 52-9 rout in a hurry Friday.

The Bulldogs from central Seattle only led West Seattle, 24-9, as late as 3:03 remaining in the third quarter -- then suddenly led by the final margin by 9:15 to go in the fourth after four quick touchdowns.

West Seattle fell to 2-1 with the loss on its home field at the Southwest Athletic Complex as Garfield improved to 3-0.
The Wildcats looked like they would take the lead early Friday.

They marched all the way to the Garfield 17, only to have a 34-yard field goal attempt by Mathias Fink go wide left with 4:33 to go in the first quarter.

The Bulldogs jumped ahead 7-0 at the 3:32 mark instead.

West Seattle then had a drive stall at the Garfield five, with a resulting 20-yard field goal try by Fink blocked at 10:07 left in the second quarter.

Fink was successful from 42 yards out at 6:09 left in the second quarter to cut the margin to 7-3.
