Lummi at Muckleshoot Tribal
Time: 5 p.m. Thursday
Blackhawks (3-0) update: Second-ranked Lummi beat a team ranked No. 5 in Class 1B for the second straight week, this time topping Tacoma Baptist 58-28 Friday. The Blackhawks rushed for more than 400 yards, according to coach Jim Sandusky, while Caleb Revey scored four touchdowns on offense and had an interception return for a TD.
Kings (0-1) update: Muckleshoot hasn’t played since a 66-0 victory over Tulalip Heritage on Sept. 8. The Kings went 0-8 last year, including a forfeit loss to Lummi on Sept. 23. The program also went 0-6 in 2015, with its last victory coming 44-28 over Seattle Lutheran in its 2014 season finale – a 15-game losing streak.
Key to the game: This will be Lummi’s first trip out of Whatcom County, so staying fresh and continuing to reduce the number of mistakes will be what Sandusky and his staff will look for.
Player to watch: Lummi’s Andrew Jefferson was expected to play a big role for the Blackhawks both at running back and along the offensive line. With the numbers Lummi has been generating on the ground, he’s obviously coming up big.
Prediction: Lummi 58-14.
