SPORTS: Neah Bay beats Quilcene in Class 1B football playoffs

SILVERDALE — The Neah Bay football team qualified for the Class 1B state playoffs for the third straight year.

In a state preliminary game, the Red Devils beat Northwest Football League rival Quilcene 52-6 for the third time this season.

The game was held at Silverdale Stadium on Friday night.

“It was a big team effort,” Neah Bay coach Tony McCaulley said. “Everyone played well and really contributed to the win.”

Running back Titus Pascua and quarterback Josiah Greene combined for 471 total yards with three touchdowns each for the Red Devils.

The Rangers played hard but were held to only 22 yards on the ground and 72 yards passing by Neah Bay’s defense, finding the end zone only once all night.

“They had a good game plan,” McCaulley said. “We were pulling away but they played us tough.”

Neah Bay (6-1, 8-2) travels to play the Lyle/Wishram Cougars (7-0, 7-2) in a 1B state quarterfinals game Friday at Washougal.
