The visiting Mountaineers stuck to their game plan of spreading the ball around on offense for a third straight game to great success, as Mount Baker won at Port Townsend 48-7 on Friday.
Sam Barrett will get the majority of the credit, and deservedly so, as the junior running back ran for three touchdowns, including a 53-yard scamper for a score in the first quarter. Baker (3-0) has yet to score less than 48 points in a game this season.
The Mountaineers led Port Townsend 34-0 at halftime, thanks to the scores by Barrett, a 6-yard rushing touchdown by Carson Engholm and a 10-yard touchdown pass from Kaleb Bass to Junior Camacho in the second quarter.
“We’re just continuing to spread the ball around,” Baker coach Ron Lepper said. “Our running backs did a better job overall, and our line just needs to keep improving.”
Never miss a local story.
Mount Baker also had help on the defensive side, as both Thomas Barbo and Jason Lee had interceptions.
Next up for the Mountaineers will be a league game against Nooksack Valley. Lepper said it’s a battle his team is “looking forward to.”
