EHS FOOTBALL: Hornets slash and dash to another victory

Seasoned Auburn Mountainview coach Mike Clancy knew quickly that his squad might be in for a long night.

Enumclaw junior running back Andy Holdener bolted 15 yards to give the Enumclaw High Hornets a touchdown on their first play from scrimmage Friday, initiating a landslide of scoring that enabled the Hornets to manage a 33-0 whitewashing of the Lions before a large Homecoming crowd at Pete’s Pool Field.

The Hornets had gained prime field position that early because Trenton Disque knifed through untouched to block a Lion punt and recover it on the 15-yard line.

“Hats off to Enumclaw,” Clancy said. “They did a great job of preparing for us and took us completely out of our style of play from the very beginning. Their defense was filled with kids that are quick, strong and very sure tacklers.”

By intermission, Holdener, who rushed for 60 yards on nine carries, had added touchdowns from 2 and 23 yards out and the score at the break was 26-0.

Enumclaw scored once in the second half when senior wideout Coleman Clyde, who notched six receptions for nearly 100 yards, caught his second touchdown of the night, an accurate 7-yard toss by senior signal caller Riley Carel.

“All we ask from our kids is that they improve a little more every week and I think all of the guys on our starting defense and offense have done that,” Hornet coach Don Bartel said, commenting on his team that has improved to 4-1 in league and 5-1 overall.

“Our entire offensive line was great tonight, run and pass blocking,” Bartel said. “It is great to have so much depth at running back, because that way we can keep fresh legs in their throughout the game. Also, Carel has matured a little more each week and has developed an almost psychic connection with his receivers.”

Next, Bonney Lake brings its high-powered offensive attack to the friendly confines of Pete’s Pool Field. Game time is 7 p.m Friday.
