Nathan Hale ran away in this one, literally -- scoring on seven touchdown runs along with two passing TDs to register a 63-13 Red Raiders victory over the Evergreen Wolverines in both's non-league season opener at Highline Memorial Friday night.
"Nathan Hale is quick, and disciplined," said Wolverines head coach Jim Wright, in his first year after coming over from Franklin High School in Seattle.
But this game was not over quite as quick as one might think. The Wolverines were in this game still after the first quarter, only down one touchdown, 15-7.
Starting the game off, the Wolverines got the kickoff and went seven plays and punted with the clock at 10:00. Then the Red Raiders went seven plays and punted with 7:30 left in the first quarter. Repeating the same sequence, the Wolverines made it through seven plays, one first down conversion in the mix, and punted. The Raiders went three and out their next set of plays, so, this game was a defensive battle to this point with 2:35 left in the first quarter.More ›
