SPORTS: Lummi holds off Neah Bay 41-30; other prep football reports

NEAH BAY — The Neah Bay Red Devils (5-1, 6-2) had their eyes set on the 1B Northwest Football League championship Friday night only to have it taken away in a 41-30 loss to Lummi (6-0, 8-1), ranked No. 2 in Class 1B.

“We were playing one of the best teams in the state,” Neah Bay coach Tony McCaulley said. “And we had them nervous.”

Josiah Greene had 170 yards of offense for Neah Bay with two rushing and two passing touchdowns.

Neah Bay’s only other loss this year came against Lummi in the first week of the season while still feeling stung from its 1B state semifinals loss to the same Blackhawks a year earlier.

Neah Bay went ahead 22-20 in the first quarter on Friday but couldn’t find the end zone again until the fourth. By that time, Lummi had already taken a 41-22 lead.

“We are a young team and anything can happen,” McCaulley said. “We have four freshmen starting and last night they all did a great job.”

Neah Bay hosts Clallam Bay for its last regular season game Friday at 7 p.m.

Quilcene 68, Clallam Bay 20

CLALLAM BAY — The Bruins (1-6, 1-6) couldn’t keep up with the Rangers (4-2, 5-3) in Northwest Football League action Friday.

The game was halted in at halftime because of the mercy rule, as the Ranger clinched a spot in the 1B preliminary playoffs.

“The first quarter was excellent football,” Clallam Bay coach Cal Ritter said. “The second quarter just got out of hand.”

Ryan Willis scored on a 25-yard pass from senior quarterback Emmitt James while John Teachout scored on a 59-yard run in the first quarter for the Bruins in an attempt to keep the game close.

Quilcene went on a scoring tear, however, running all over the Bruins in a 46-6 second quarter to end the game with 456 rushing yards on 28 carries.

Brandon Bancroft ran for 208 yards on only eight carries and had six rushing touchdowns.

“We’ve been taking more strides toward where we need to be,” Ritter said.

Quilcene next hosts Crescent on Saturday at 1 p.m.

Elma 49, Forks 0

FORKS — The Spartans’ (0-9, 0-9) hope of getting its first win of the season were shattered by Elma (4-3, 5-4) in their final game Friday night.

“It’s a rough go,” Forks coach Andrew Peterson said. “It is what it is.”

The Eagles had the Spartans pinned down the entire night.

“We got to get into the weight room and get better,” Peterson said. “Let’s get through it, rebuild.”

Muckleshoot 86, Crescent 40

AUBURN — Muckleshoot (3-3, 3-3) had no problems Friday night, dashing the Loggers’ (2-4, 3-4) playoff hopes with one more game to play.

“We will prepare exactly like we would for every other game this season,” Loggers coach Tim Rooney said about the team’s last game at Quilcene.

Joey Barnes rushed for 98 yards on 22 carries and also had four catches for 124 yards and two touchdowns. Derrick Findley and Eric Larson had two touchdowns.
