Sehome was hoping a touchdown on the first play of the game would have set the tone, but Bellingham came roaring back to take a non-league victory 39-20 on Friday at Civic Stadium.
Sehome’s Dylan Roberts ran for a touchdown in this rivalry matchup, but the Mariners could only muster 13 offensive plays in the first half en route to a 27-13 halftime disadvantage. However, Sehome coach Kevin Beason said he felt like his team was still in the game at halftime.
“We were looking forward to establishing our offense in the second half but just never got to that point,” Beason said. “It didn’t help that our defense started slow too.”
With starting quarterback Michael Mindnich out to injury, Sehome freshman Jacob Kaepernick was forced to take the reins. Kaepernick did “all we asked him to do tonight.”
Bellingham improved to 3-3 on the year.
