Turnovers, injuries down Lummi


The Lummi football team fell to Neah Bay 76-32 on Friday, Oct. 4, at Neah Bay.

The Blackhawks got on the board first with a quarterback sneak by Logan Toby. Toby, who missed the previous three games due to injury, was thrust into the game after starting quarterback Austin Brockie got hurt three plays into the game.

"(Logan) was slated to play one quarter at quarterback," Lummi coach Jim Sandusky said in a phone interview. "He got thrown in pretty quick, and he did a good job throwing the ball and running the offense."

Things quickly went downhill for Lummi, as turnovers and injuries began to mount up. Before the end of the first half, the Blackhawks had committed five turnovers and lost four starters to injury.

"It was very rough," Sandusky said. "Tough one slipped through our hands because we prepared well."

Logan accounted for two total touchdowns, but Neah Bay made the most of its opportunities, taking a 38-18 lead into the half.

Devin Cooper had a strong game running the football, accounting for more than 100 yards rushing and two touchdowns on 15 carries. Dean Williams had two receiving touchdowns for Lummi.

"He caught the ball really well," Sandusky said.

Lummi (3-2) hosts Crescent at 6 p.m. Friday, Oct. 11.
