This Mission Valley Athletic League contest at Tak Fudenna Stadium remained competitive until Mark Colbert's 33-yard touchdown run late in the first quarter opened the floodgates for the host Huskies.

Colbert's touchdown came with 2:26 remaining in the first quarter. Nate Woudstra added two scores, one on a 4-yard run and another on a 70-yard interception return. The latter was Washington's second interception return for a score in the game, as Emory Simmons had earlier returned one 25 yards to the end zone.

Washington (4-3, 4-0 MVAL) led 26-0 at halftime. Louie Clark added third-quarter touchdown runs of 1 and 17 yards to complete the scoring.

Moreau Catholic star running back Jason Hinton did not play due to illness, Mariners coach Andrew Cotter said.

The Mariners (4-3, 0-3) could do little against the Huskies defense, which limited the visitors to 49 yards total offense in the first half and 169 for the game. Brandon Tieu's 45-yard pass reception to start the fourth quarter was Moreau Catholic's biggest play from scrimmage for the game.

Washington finished with four interceptions.
