Borsey also completed 3 of 7 passes for 32 yards. Coach Jim Sandusky said he was pleased with Borsey’s progress behind center, especially on his long throws.
Said Borsey: “Our lineman did a really good job, they held their blocks, and I had time to throw and scramble.”

Generous field position helped the Blackhawks (3-0) lead 27-0 after the first quarter.
Lummi will play at Muckleshoot on Thursday, Sept. 22, with another game two days later at home against Orcas Island.
“It’s going to be tough because we’re going to have to plan for two different teams within three days of each other,” Borsey said.
The game was over when ...
Borsey scored on 65-yard screen pass from Dashawn Lawrence as time expired in the first half. Borsey’s reception gave Lummi a 42-point lead.
Unsung hero of the game
Lawrence completed 5 of 7 passes for three touchdowns. His consistency was key in the Blackhawks’ dominance.
Getting everybody in
Lummi has the depth to compete in its next set of games. Playing mostly backups in the second half against Taholah , the Blackhawks held the Chitwhins to eight points.
Despite playing three games in eight days, the Blackhawks shouldn’t have trouble remaining undefeated.
“It was a good night,” Sandusky said. “We got everybody in the game. That’s always a goal of mine.”
