FRIDAY’S PREP FOOTBALL: Forks crushes Ilwaco; Neah Bay buries Concrete in second half

ILWACO — Despite making some mistakes with penalties, the Forks football team showed that it is one of the elite 2B teams in the state with a 41-0 pasting on the road Friday night against Ilwaco.

“Our offense sputtered at times We had pre-snap penalties, too many of those,” said coach Trevor Highfield.

The Spartans played a great game defensively, Highfield said. Ilwaco came in to the game with a 2-1 record with those two wins by huge margins.

“Ilwaco has a strong running attack. We did a great job stopping their run. They only had two first downs in the first half,” Highfield said. “We took away what they wanted to do.”

Landin Davis recovered a fumble caused by Sloan Tumaua and ran it back for a 34-yard touchdown. He actually had another “scoop and score” in the game, but that one was called back by an inadvertent whistle, Highfield said.

Tumaua also had a fumble recovery and Walker Wheeler caused a fumble and had a recovery.

Brody Lausche scored the Spartans’ first touchdown, and Davis scored the second. Landen Olson scored on a 3-yard pass from Bubba Hernandez as Forks took a 21-0 lead into the half.

In the second half, Hernandez had a touchdown of his own on a 50-yard run and Davis scored his third touchdown of the game on a short touchdown in the fourth quarter.

The Spartans (2-0, 4-0) have a huge test coming up on the road next Friday against Raymond (0-0, 3-1). The Seagulls beat Adna 62-36 on Friday and earlier this season beat Ilwaco 41-14.

Neah Bay 74, Concrete 44

CONCRETE — The Neah Bay football team blew open a tight first half against a resurgent Concrete team, running away in the second half for a 74-44 win.

It’s hard to tell from the final score, but the Red Devils actually trailed at times all through the first half and entered the halftime break down 30-28. Concrete came in to the game 3-0, having blown out all of its previous opponents by huge margins.

“It was a back-and-forth type game. Their quarterback [Josiah Rider] … that’s what was getting us,” said head coach TJ Greene. Rider had three touchdown passes and three touchdown runs in the game, but did most of his damage in that first half.

A couple of crucial interceptions helped turn the tide. One by Makyah Chambers came at the end of the first half to kill a scoring opportunity and the second came in the third quarter by Jodell Wimberley, who was back with the team after an injury.

“We definitely made some defensive adjustments,” Greene said. “And we tweaked our defensive line to get more pressure on their quarterback.”

The Red Devils outscored Concrete 24-0 in the third quarter to take command of the game at 52-30.

Tyler Swan rushed for three touchdowns in the second half while Wimberley had three touchdown runs and a touchdown pass.

Neah Bay (2-0, 2-2) will play Tulalip Heritage (1-2, 1-3) at 5 p.m. Friday in Marysville. This will be a special game for Greene, whose son is the offensive coordinator for Tulalip and also has a grandson playing for the team.
