SPORTS: Chimacum blasts Life Christian; other prep football reports

PORT TOWNSEND — Chimacum rolled up a 39-0 lead at halftime against Life Christian Academy on Friday on the way to a 39-20 homecoming victory.

The Cowboys (2-0, 4-1) put up first-quarter touchdowns on a 43-yard pass from Mason Moug to Trevor Richardson, a 1-yard run by Moug and an 18-yard rush by Devin Manix.

Chimacum’s defense owned the second quarter with the Cowboys returning three errant Eagles passes for touchdowns.

Manix returned two of the passes for scores from 25- and 48-yards and Nick Reynolds took one to the end zone from 13 yards out.

A scary moment occurred just before halftime when Life Christian’s Daniel Thatcher was injured and taken off the field after sustaining a neck injury.

Forks 35, Winlock 8

FORKS — Forks bounced back with an excellent defensive performance to earn a SWWA Evergreen Division win over the Cardinals on Friday.

The Spartans (2-1, 3-2) held Winlock (1-2, 3-2) to just 21 yards rushing and 99 yards passing.

“We had a really good pass rush,” Forks coach Ron Hurn said.

Winlock scored late in the fourth quarter against the Forks JV defense.

Without starting tailback Luke Brown, Forks used a three-pronged rushing attack and some timely passing to wear down Winlock.

Fernando Hernandez rushed 10 times for 136 yards and two touchdowns, Alexis Ayala returned to rush 13 times for 68 yards and Shane Whiteeagle added five rushes for 58 yards.

Forks quarterback Brian Santman completed 3-of-6 passes for 92 yards and two touchdowns of 55 and 26 yards to Kenneth Hurn.

“We started slow in the first quarter with a couple of deep drives ending on turnovers on downs,” Hurn said.

“But we were able to put some things together and score a few times.”

Forks visits Toledo (2-1, 4-1) in a battle for sole possession of third-place in the Evergreen Division.

“They run the Wing-T on offense,” Hurn said. “They aren’t a real big team but they are pretty quick and they throw it a little bit, so we’ll need some more good defense.”

Yelm 40, Port Angeles 8

YELM — Behind the blocking of an offensive line averaging over 280 pounds per player, Yelm star Andrew Almeida blistered Port Angeles for 275 yards rushing and four touchdowns in a Olympic/Western Cascade League contest on Friday.

Almeida scored on runs of 16 and 12 in the first half and put the game away with dashes of 45 and 65 in the third quarter.

Down 14-0 after one quarter, Port Angeles cut the lead to six after Keenan Walker connected with Cameron Moon on a 15-yard touchdown pass.

Unfortunately for the Riders (0-3, 0-5), the Tornadoes bottled up the Port Angeles offense for the rest of the game.

The Riders entertain league leading Timberline (3-0, 5-0) next Friday.

Timberline kept the clamps on Olympic star running back Larry Dixon on Friday, holding the Division 1 prospect to 18 yards in a 63-21 swamping of the Trojans.
