SBLive’s Top 10 plays of Week 6

10. Trying to fend off a ferocious comeback attempt from Onalaska, Kalama's Aiden Brown put his team out in front with a short touchdown run with 20 seconds to go in wild 44-36 win.

9. Down by two scores for much of the game, Lynden Christian pulled off the comeback with Kayden Stuit taking the handoff and finding the end zone on a short run to upend Nooksack Valley on the road.

8. A lot of things went right for Sunnyside against Eisenhower and one of the Grizzlies' best playmakers in Noah McNair showed off intercepting a pass and taking it back 23 yards for an early-game touchdown.

7. Already having scored one touchdown on special teams with Kooper Clark's kickoff return for a score, David Malroy added to the fun, running back a punt for a Tumwater touchdown.

6. Bothell's Mingo Lemley has had no shortage of key plays for the Cougars this season and he added to that total against Issaquah with two bust-a-move, shed-tackler touchdowns.

5. In a showdown between the 4A SPSL's top two teams in Curtis and Graham-Kapowsin, it was inevitable that Rocco Koch would break out a big play - and did just that on 62-yard touchdown run in the first half.

4. Also in the Graham-Kapowsin vs. Curtis showdown, the Eagles were looking to get on the scoreboard one last time before halftime, and their "Hail Mary" prayers were answered with Noah Fox-Flores catching the tipped ball in the end zone. 

3. There would be no denying Southridge's Gavin Allen on this play after he hauled in a pass and dragged multiple defenders the remaining 20 yards to the end zone for a touchdown.

2. The reward was worth the risk for Kennewick late in its MCC game against Richland with a perfect execution of the hook and ladder as Kyler Witkowski caught the lateral from David Wacenske in stride and sprinted 63 yards for the game-winning touchdown.

1. After four years as the team's equipment manager, Tahoma senior Wyatt Bureau – who was born with Down syndrome – suited up for the Bears, scored his first touchdown in the game in a scripted manner and showed off his best dance moves surrounded by players from both teams.
