LUMMI - The Lummi Blackhawks' football team displayed a prolific and relentless offense Friday, Sept. 14, against the Taholah Chitwhins, winning 59-24.
Leading the way for the Blackhawks was senior quarterback Jared Tom, who finished the game 12 of 14 passing for 197 yards and five touchdowns, including opening the game with eight straight completions.
"I think he was a lot more poised - he was more comfortable and far more accurate," Lummi coach Jim Sandusky said. "He made some nice throws (and) the receivers made some great catches."
Tom and the Blackhawks offense struck early and often, opening the Blackhawks' first offensive possession with a 49-yard touchdown pass to Austin Brockie.
Aided by two 3-and-outs and a lost fumble by the Chitwhins, the Blackhawks scored four straight touchdowns in the first quarter, taking a commanding 29-8 lead into the second quarter.
The Blackhawks defense played well, too, holding the Chitwhins to only eight points in the first half. Sandusky subbed most of his starters out after the first half.
"It was a combination of wrapping up, staying low and getting off blocks," Sandusky said. "We've been trying to strive to work on our defense (and) shore that up, because we know we can score points."
