ATHLETE OF THE WEEK: Noa Montoya, Port Townsend Redhawks quarterback

Port Townsend quarterback Noa Montoya had a game for the Redhawks against Concrete he’ll never forget Friday night.

Montoya led the Redhawks from behind to pull off a miraculous 36-34 win over the Lions.

First, as Port Townsend was trailing in the final minute down 34-28. He hit Dylan Tracer with three straight passes to lead the Redhawks down the field into scoring position. Then with 34 seconds remaining, he picked up a bad snap, avoided getting sacked and hit Tracer again for the game-tying touchdown.

On the two-point conversion attempt, Montoya recovered up a Tracer fumble in the end zone to give the Redhawks the lead.

When Concrete got the ball back, Montoya went back as a defensive back on defense and intercepted a Lions’ pass on a trick play to finally seal the victory for the Redhawks. What a sequence for the Port Townsend senior, who has also come back from an ankle injury this season.

About 30 hardy cyclists from the Victoria area came across on the early Coho ferry Monday to ride up to the top of Hurricane Ridge on Canada Day, the anniversary of the 1867 effective date of the country’s constitution. The cyclists make the round trip in about 4 hours in time for the return ferry ride back home, including this group on First St. in Port Angeles. The yearly trek has been happening for about 20 years and is organized only by word of mouth through various cycle shops in the greater Victoria area.
