PREP FOOTBALL UPDATE: Sequim runs past Forks; Chimacum and Port Angeles lose

Wolves total more than 250 rushing yards on wet night at Spartan Stadium

FORKS — Sequim unleashed a potent rushing attack in a 27-13 win over Forks on a drizzle-soaked Friday night at Spartan Stadium.

Walker Ward did much of the heavy lifting for Sequim, carrying the ball 30 times for 172 yards. Ward consistently found running lanes thanks to some solid blocking by Sequim against the Spartans’ smaller defensive line.

Wolves’ quarterback Taig Wiker scored three first-half rushing touchdowns as Sequim held a 21-0 halftime lead. He finished with 16 carries for 64 yards on the ground and was 12 of 25 for 131 yards and a passing TD.

A penalty-plagued third quarter saw two touchdowns come off the board for the Wolves’ Garrett Hoesel.

Wiker found Hoesel for a 70-yard catch-and-run that was waived off due to a holding call and Hoesel’s 92-yard kickoff return after a Forks touchdown cut the lead to 21-6 was called back due to a block in the back.

Hoesel stuck with it and scored the Wolves’ final touchdown on a 24-yard TD reception from Wiker.

Sequim (2-0) also lost wide receiver/defensive back/kick returner/kickoff specialist Michael Young when he was ejected from the game in the third quarter. An ejection means an automatic one-game suspension for Young, so the Wolves will be without one of their top playmakers in every aspect of the game for Friday’s showdown with North Kitsap in Poulsbo at 7 p.m. Friday.

Forks was led by Antonio Farias who caught both of Carter Windle’s touchdown passes and finished with 3 receptions for 51 yards.

Windle was 11 of 26 for 135 yards, the two TD passes and three interceptions for the Spartans (1-1).

Forks couldn’t get its ground game in gear, rushing for just 14 yards as a team.

The Spartans visit Port Townsend next Friday with a 6:30 p.m. kickoff at Memorial Field.

Port Townsend-Kingston, canceled (lightning)

KINGSTON — Lightning strikes in the vicinity halted, and eventually canceled this nonleague contest between the Redhawks and Buccaneers.

Port Townsend had the ball at the Kingston 1-yard line trailing 20-0 when the game was stopped midway through the second quarter Thursday night.

Redhawks head coach Patrick Gaffney said the team’s waited out the storm for more than an hour before finally deciding to call it a night.

Gaffney said they may have waited a little bit longer if the game wasn’t played on a school night.

The contest is not likely to be made up.

Tenino 31, Chimacum 6

PORT TOWNSEND — The Cowboys debuted some new black and blue uniforms but it was the red and black Beavers’ attack that came away with the win at Memorial Field.

Chimacum (0-2) visits La Conner on Friday.
