Squalicum uses late surge to beat Cedarcrest


The Squalicum Storm football team defeated Cedarcrest 64-36 on Friday, Nov. 8, at Cedarcrest in the Storm's season finale.

The game was pretty back and forth, but with about five minutes to go and the Storm clinging to an 8-point lead, Squalicum reeled off three touchdowns over the final few minutes to run away with the win.

"It was closer than the score indicated," Squalicum coach Reed Richardson said in a phone interview. "It was a lot of kids making plays. ... Kids played hard, and just walked away with a great win."

Blake Youtsey recorded a key 50-yard interception return for a touchdown that helped the Storm secure the win.

Richardson was particularly impressed with the play of his dual-threat quarterback, Clark Hazlett.

"He threw the ball really well," said Richardson, who recalled Hazlett and wide receiver Ben Peterson connecting often in the win. "Peterson caught the ball all over the place."
