The Lummi Nation Blackhawks scored in just about every way imaginable during their 65-30 drubbing of division opponent Clallam Bay.
The Blackhawks scored off punt returns, interception returns, electrifying passes and good-old-fashioned runs.
This is the Blackhawk’s third win in a row, as they move to 3-2 on the season.
Lummi opened up the offensive floodgates early, piling on 47 points in the first quarter and ending the half up 59-18.

“We wanted to spread the ball around early,” Lummi coach Jim Sandusky said. “We wanted to get as many touches as possible.”
The Blackhawks certainly accomplished that, combining excellent defense with offensive efficiency to put up 400 yards of total offense.
Lummi had a restrained, but incredibly efficient passing attach, with starting quarterback Hank Hoskins completing all four passes of his pass, two of which went for touchdowns. Hoskins also accounted for two scores with his legs.
“The receivers ran good routes,” Hoskins said. “And we finally got the passing game going.”
The Blackhawks’ special teams was an additional bright point. Lummi ran back two punts and blocked one.
Completing the domination, Lummi’s defense played relentlessly all night, forcing four turnovers, one of which was an interception returned for touchdown. The Blackhawks’ secondary played especially well, holding Clallam Bay to only 59 yards through the air.
Dino Williams had perhaps the play of the night for the Blackhawks, picking a pass in the second quarter and running 60 yards for the touchdown.
“We tackled really well,” Sandusky said. “We were able to get on top of them quick, hitting them in the backfield without letting them get open space.”
Jacob Roberts and Jonathan Casimir both ran well for the Blackhawks, with Roberts scoring twice and Casimir once.
Devin Cooper and Austin Brockie made their receiving presence known, both scoring off long touchdown receptions from Hoskins.
Despite his team’s excellent play, Sandusky was quick to turn his attention to next week’s matchup.
“We’re going to see more of the run,” Sandusky said. “We need to look at some different personnel, maybe put some bigger bodies on our line.”
The Blackhawks next play on Saturday, Oct. 11, at Crescent High School.
