Lummi's Deion Hoskins controlled the line of scrimmage, and Devin Cooper and Jared Tom stuffed the run from their linebacker positions as the Blackhawks turned in a dominating defensive performance during a 58-6 win against Northwest Football League opponent Crescent on Saturday, Oct. 6, at Crescent.
The win helped Lummi (4-2, 1-1 NWFL) creep back into the race for a conference title and handed Crescent its first loss of the season.
"Cooper and Tom were able to come up and stuff their run really well," Lummi coach Jim Sandusky said in a phone interview. "That's all they really did in the first half. We did a good job on the ends, and Dimitri Sampson and Willie Jones kept contain."
Lummi built an early lead, scoring four touchdowns in the first quarter. By halftime, Lummi owned a 44-0 advantage.
On offense, the Blackhawks were led by Sampson and Hoskins, who Sandusky said both went over 100 yards rushing.
"Dimitri Sampson ran the ball really well," Sandusky said. "Logan Toby and Jared Tom completed several passes to Austin Brockie and Dino Williams."
Sandusky praised the work of Jeremy Spotted Bear and Eli Wall on the offensive line for opening up holes and giving Tom and Toby time to find open receivers.
Lummi plays Muckleshoot next at 5 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 10, at Muckleshoot.
