The Lummi Nation Blackhawk's wide receiver, Austin Brockie, was not timid stepping into the quarterback role in Friday night's game against Evergreen Lutheran. He threw for 250 yards and six touchdowns as the Blackhawk's beat the Eagles 67-6 at Blackhawks Stadium.
"It's a new thing for me," Brockie said. "It's pretty tight. I love it."
The defense was a force to be reckoned with, causing four fumbles, two interceptions. The Eagles managed to only score one touchdown on a terrific catch by Karl Leitzke, as the Blackhawks held the Eagles' offense to 109 rushing yards.
"Overall, I liked our aggressiveness and getting to the ball," Lummi coach Jim Sandusky said. "We came up and made hits."
Special teams takeaways were also on the Blackhawks' side, as they corralled two fumble recoveries on kickoffs. The Eagles could not find the proper handle on the squib kicks by senior Charlie Wilson, a play that the Blackhawks have been practicing all year, Sandusky said.
"It's a tough ball to pick up if it's bouncing around like that," Sandusky said. "It just worked out that we got a couple turnovers out there."
