Lummi coach Jim Sandusky said he likes how the Blackhawks are playing heading into the postseason.
“We’ve got a running game now, which really changes things for us,” Sandusky said in a phone interview. “Tonight we had 352 yards rushing, which was good. It was nice to see that part of our game improve. Our defense has really come up and played well also.”
After finishing the regular season 6-2 overall and 3-1 in league, the Blackhawks will play Oakville next weekend to start the postseason with a time and date to be determined, but Thursday was about enjoying the victory.
“Guys played hard and it was a good game for us and a good finish to the regular season,” Sandusky said, “and now we’re ready for the postseason.”
