Hyaks 54, Indians 0
SOUTH BEND — Bolstered by their size and stength of its offensive line, North Beach picked up its first win of the season by rushing for 525 yards against host South Bend on Friday night in a non-league matchup.
Tyler Turner and Pedro Gonzalez each ran for three touchdowns, all of them in the first half, to produce a 48-0 halftime score. Elijah Towery added a 1-yard touchdown in the third quarter to end the scoring. The entire second half was played on the mercy rule running clock.
Turner scored from 3, 23 and 88 yards, while Gonzalez added touchdowns from 20, 11 and 5 yards. Turner led all players with 177 yards rushing on 10 attempts, with Jordan Chong adding 99 yards in five attempts.
“We had six kids rush for more than 50 yards tonight,” North Beach head coach Todd Bridge said. “The size and strength of our offensive line showed. When you rush for 525 yards, you have to tip your cap to them. They were bulldozers, taking control of the line of scrimmage. Defensively, we controlled the line as well.”
Gonzalez scored two 2-point conversions, with Justin Chong, Jordan Chong, Turner and Towery each adding one for North Beach.
“They’re big,” South Bend head coach Tom Sanchez added. “With the offense they run, they’ll take advantage of that. They did a great job on the line of scrimmage. Even as low (in statistics), it was a marked difference from a week ago. We’ve come a long ways (on offense). We’re improving.”
South Bend finished with 98 yards of offense on the night, with quarterback Austin Lewis throwing for 60 yards on 6-of-7 attempts. Marcus Overstake led the Indians (0-2) on defense with seven solo tackles and three assists and Andrew Spoor was cited for “a much improved game” on defense.
On Friday, North Beach travels to Naselle, while South Bend hits the road to face Adna.
Charles Wright 26, Raymond 14
TACOMA — Charles Wright Academy took advantage of Raymond in the first half by blocking a punt and picking off a pass to roll past the Gulls in a non-league game on Friday.
The Class 2B Gulls (0-2) racked up 309 yards of total offense to Class 1A Tarriers’ 269 yards.
Alex Sida made both touchdowns for Raymond — a 56-yard run in the second quarter and a 39-yard run in the third quarter. He was also the leading rusher with 14 carries for 171 yards and two touchdowns. Andrew Hamilton kicked both of the point-after tries.
Carte Bisbee was the leading receiver for the Gulls with two catches for 36 yards. He also had 15 tackles. Darol Ratsavongsy added 10 tackles and Hamilton contributed nine tackles and a sack.
“They (Charles Wright) got all of their points in the first half,” Raymond head coach Rob Clements said. “They are big up front, but our guys did well considering how big they are. Our line did a nice job.”
Clements praised Sida for outstanding running, adding that he will be hard to stop this year. He also commended Alec Oatfield and Marcus Lundy for doing a great job blocking.
On Friday, Raymond hosts Winlock for the first test in its own classification.
Bobcats 3 (7), Tigers 3 (6)
CENTRALIA — One winning set in an eventual losing doubles effort proved to be the difference Friday as the Aberdeen boys tennis team salvaged a victory over Centralia on the road.
After straight-set victories in three singles matches, the Bobcats dropped all three doubles contests, creating a tie with the Tigers in match wins. The winner had to be determined by total sets won by each school.
After losing the first two doubles matches in straight sets, the Bobcats’ No. 3 duo of John Solan and Reilly Fairchild took the middle set in their eventual three-set loss. That set provided the tiebreaker and a Bobcat win, 7-6.
“They regrouped (after losing the first set),” said Aberdeen coach Andy Duffy, “and they had a chance in the third set, but came up just short.”
In singles, Aberdeen’s Dillon Rowe, Cole Edwards and Dominic Salik registered a sweep of Centralia. Salik struggled in his second set, but eventually triumphed, 6-3, 7-5.
“He’s had a history of going out strong and letting the guy come back, but this time he closed the door,” Duffy said. “Hopefully he can take that confidence in to the next match.”
