LUMMI - The Lummi Blackhawks got off to a fast start at Blackhawks Stadium on Friday, Oct. 25, scoring four times and not giving up a point in the first quarter. Senior quarterback Logan Toby started the scoring with one of his five touchdown passes less than two minutes into the 54-28 victory Class 1B victory over Lopez.
"We got up on them quick," Blackhawks coach Jim Sandusky said. "We were able to get to the running clock right before half."
The Blackhawks were firing on all cylinders, racking up a total of 522 offensive yards while scoring eight touchdowns, six through the air and two on the ground. Toby had 329 of those yards passing the ball, although he felt as though he could have done better.
"I have to work on some things," Toby said. "Get my timing down and work on some little things with my receivers."
The offense moved with a faster tempo in Friday's game. Sandusky even traded in his play-calling notebook for a hurry-up style play board, which was the size of a poster.
"We were trying some different things. Speeding up our offense," Sandusky said. "This week we upped the game and the guys responded really well."
Lummi, although passing 42 times, didn't do its only work through the air. The Blackhawks more than doubled the Lobos run total with 135 yards on one less carry. Toby also led his team in rushing with 91 yards on six carries.
"I was watching game film and noticed I could do some things on the ground," Toby said. "I just took the opportunities."
Senior Deion Hoskins put his mark on the game as usual. Hoskins had 97 total yards and two total touchdowns. He scored on a 5-yard pass and a 45-yard run, stumbling and knocking down four Lobos in the last 10 yards.
On the defensive side of the ball, the Blackhawks put a lot of pressure on the Lobos. They only allowed 64 yards rushing, caused and recovered a fumble, and also added three interceptions to their stat column.
With the victory, Lummi clinched its berth in the playoffs, which start in two weeks after one more game in Tulalip on Nov. 1.
"We pretty much locked up second place, so (we) will head into the playoffs after next week," Sandusky said. "Health wise, we still have a couple guys that still need to get healthy. We'll be prepared and ready to go."
