PREP FOOTBALL: East Jefferson tops rival Klahowya on senior night

Neah Bay shuts out Quilcene. Sequim falls, Forks forfeits.

PORT TOWNSEND — Film study helped East Jefferson pick off four Klahowya passes as the Rivals earned a victory over their new rivals on a rainy evening at Memorial Field, taking down Klahowya 18-13 in Nisqually League action Friday.

The win moved East Jefferson (3-1, 3-4) into second place in the Nisqually League, in line for a potential state playoff bid. It was the third win in a row for the Rivals.

“We noticed when we studied film that their QB liked to throw off his back foot, or across his body when he was rolling out,” coach Tony Haddenham said.

“We were able to get our guys in the right spots all night.”

Gerald Lindsey, Brody Moore, Gary Zambor and Trevor Wilson all notched interceptions for the Rivals.

Offensively, East Jefferson took advantage of the Eagles’ defensive alignment to run for big yards.

“It was a wet and sloppy game, the field was soupy, and even with upgrades it wasn’t in good shape by the end,” Haddenham said. “I felt bad for the girls soccer team because they have to play on it at 3 p.m. Saturday.”

Wilson led the Rivals with 14 carries for 110 yards and two scores.

Siamau Auseuga rumbled up the middle for a 53-yard gain to set up a score and also caught three passes for 27 yards and a TD.

He added five tackles and two sacks defensively.

Zambor also had a big night receiving, catching three passes for 80 yards.

Aaron Glanz stepped in at quarterback and completed 8 of 14 passes for 126 yards, a TD and an interception.

East Jefferson saluted 12 seniors: James Harbin, Wilson, Tanner Haddenham, Austen Hammer, Devon Bennett-Anderson, Exael Hernandez-Duran, Auseuga, Beau Manuel, Lars Wakefield, Ricardo Vega, Lindsey and Sean Jones.

“These kids are quiet leaders, they lead by example and they’ve stepped up and made this program their own,” Haddenham said.

East Jefferson (3-1, 3-4) visits Bellevue Christian (1-1, 3-3) next Saturday.

Neah Bay 38, Quilcene 0

NEAH BAY — Neah Bay remained undefeated for the season by beating Quilcene 38-0 at home Friday night.

“I liked our effort. The kids played hard. But we made too many mistakes offensively to sustain a drive,” said Quilcene coach Trey Beathard.

“The story of this game was our deensive line,” said Neah Bay coach kane Bachelor. Andre Greene had three tackles for loss and forced a fumble, while Neil Bowechop and Aiden Ellis combined for five sacks, a forced fumble and a fumble recovery.

“The reason there was a zero on the scoreboard was those three,” Bachelor said.

Beathard said Neah Bay’s swarming defense wouldn’t allow the Rangers any big plays. He said Quilcene’s biggest play of the game might have been for 10 or 12 yards. “If we blocked their defensive front, then their defensive backs came up and made the tackle,” Beathard said. “They’re good.”

Beathard said Neah Bay quarterback Julian Carrick is probably the best player he’s seen all year.

Carrick finished with 10 carries for 145 yards and two touchdowns. Neah Bay running back Jodell Wimberley had 22 carries for 117 yards and three touchdowns.

If Quilcene can find any moral victory, the Rangers did hold Neah Bay to its lowest point total all year, by a considerable margin. The Red Devils’ next lowest output was 58 points versus Naselle. Neah Bay has outscored its opponents 376-41 this year, averaging 62.7 points a game.

“Quilcene deserves the credit for that. I love their program,” Bachelor said. “They tackle and they hit. Quilcene made us play all four quarters.”

Because of the defense, Neah Bay didn’t have a lot of big plays and was forced to drive the ball down the field. “It was a slow-paced game, and we’re comfortable with that,” Bachelor said.

“I was proud of how hard our kids played. They didn’t play their best,” Beathard said.

Neah Bay (5-0, 7-0) looks to complete a perfect season, hosting Lummi (2-4, 3-5) at 6 p.m. Friday.

The loss snapped a three-game winning streak for the Rangers. Quilcene (3-1, 4-4) next plays at Crescent (1-2, 2-5) at 1 p.m. Saturday.

Pe Ell/Willapa Valley 2, Forks 0 forfeit

FORKS — The Spartans forfeited Friday’s contest with Pe Ell-Willapa Valley.

A text message sent to Forks High School families announced the cancellation.

“The district has preliminary information regarding an incident on Oct. 8 on a football event which involves a substantial number of players. Due to this we are canceling tonight’s game. The district will not comment further on this matter.”

There’s no word on if Forks’ final home game of the season Friday against top-ranked Napavine will be played.
