Blackhawks’ running game turns the corner racking up over 400 yards

The Lummi football team rushed for more than 400 yards en route to a 58-28 non-league win over visiting Tacoma Baptist on Friday in a battle of teams ranked in the top five in Class 1B.

Caleb Revey keyed the Blackhawks’ attack, as he scored a total of five touchdowns, four on offense and an interception he returned for a touchdown. No. 2 Lummi (3-0) led 30-0 at halftime.

Lummi coach Jim Sandusky said what worked Friday was his team’s consistent attack outside the tackles on the ground.

“Our speed to the outside was too much for them,” Sandusky said. “They filled the middle with defensive linemen and linebackers, and we just went outside.”

Sandusky also said his team cleaned up its snaps to the quarterback. Last week, Lummi had a dozen snaps sail over or past the quarterback in the shotgun, but the Blackhawks only had two against No. 5 Tacoma Baptist. Lummi also cut its penalties in half from last week’s shutout win against Neah Bay.
