The Enumclaw Hornets football team rode the win train into the South Puget Sound League 3A with a 55-28, Friday night victory over Auburn Mountainview.
The offense kicked into high gear in the first quarter, scoring seven, and never looked back.
“Our offense went crazy running the ball behind our dominant offensive line with Evan McCrillis and Mauricio Portillo,” coach Mark Gunderson said. “That set up our passing game and allowed quarterback Peter Nordby to connect with wide receiver Trey Rodarte for a few scores.”
The Hornets put up 14 in the second, 21 in the third and 13 in the fourth.
Gunderson said the defense played a strong game holding the Lions to 28.
Our defense stepped up in critical situations,” Gunderson said. “Big games by free safety Nordby (interception), cornerback Mitchell Hammond, and outside linebackers McCrillis (multiple sacks and tackles for loss) and Nick Conrad (interception).
Next up for the Hornets are the Lakes Lancers. Game time is 7 p.m. Friday at Harry Lang Stadium.
