Lummi football turned on the scoring and kept Evergreen Lutheran at bay to take home a 44-12 win in the Class 1B Quad-District Playoffs on Thursday, Nov. 7, at Muckleshoot High School. The Blackhawks opened up the passing game to jump out to a big lead and cruised in the second half to an easy win.
"We were able to throw the ball and had some good passing plays," Lummi coach Jim Sandusky said in a phone interview. "We didn't expect them to come in with the defense they did, but they pretty much gave us the pass."
Lummi quarterback Logan Toby kicked off the game with a one-yard rushing touchdown for the Blackhawks. Sandusky was also impressed by how well his team ran the ball in the game.
"We did a good job carrying the ball against a run-oriented defense, and we were able to sustain the lead thanks to some turnovers," he said.
Toby found receiver Dino Williams for a 59-yard reception that Williams took all the way to the end zone, putting Lummi up 14-0 at the end of the first. The Blackhawks had converted a 2-point conversion on the first touchdown.
In the second quarter, running back Deion Hoskins got going with a three-yard rushing touchdown. Toby also put another six points on the board for Lummi when he found Jacob Roberts for a 34-yard touchdown pass.
Kavarez Lane helped the Blackhawks pour on the scoring with a 34-yard touchdown reception from Toby, followed by a three-yard rushing touchdown.
Dino Williams ended the Lummi scoring rampage with a 54-yard touchdown catch, again from Toby, to put the Blackhawks up 44-0 with 3:00 left in the first half.
Evergreen Christian managed a touchdown before halftime, and got one more in the fourth quarter, but Lummi's defense proved to be too much for them to handle.
Lummi advances to take on the winner of the Taholah-Wishka Valley game Friday, Nov. 15, or Saturday, Nov. 16, Sandusky said.
