Burien’s Highline High School Pirates football team beat Interlake Friday night – as the visiting team – by a score of 44-0, winning the KingCo 2A title.

The Pirates end the regular season with an overall record of 7-2, and an undefeated 6-0 in their division.

The team enters the playoffs this coming Friday, Nov. 5 at 7 p.m. and are the #3 seed in the District bracket. They will play the White River Hornets, from Buckley, who have a 4-5 overall record.

Not bad, considering the last time Highline football won a championship was the NPSL title in 1953.
