South Kitsap routs Foss to earn third straight victory

The running game always has been a staple of South Kitsap football.

This year is no different.

Stephen Tucker showed that as he rushed for five first-half touchdowns and finished with 188 yards on 19 carries as the Wolves earned a 61-28 Narrows League Bridge Division win against Foss on Friday at Joe Knowles Stadium.

Tucker scored on runs of 16, 29, 3, 13 and 13 yards to give the Wolves their third consecutive victory and 21st straight against Foss (1-5 overall, 0-3 Narrows League Bridge Division). The Falcons, who haven’t defeated SK since 1979, trailed by as many as 28 points in the first half, but rallied to cut the halftime deficit to 40-22.

Foss quarterback Andrew Hunthausen, who completed 8 of 21 passes for 209 yards, connected with Alan Brown on a 53-yard touchdown with one-tenth of a second left in the first half. Both of Brown’s receptions went for touchdowns as he finished with 134 yards.

The Wolves' aggressive defense surrendered some big plays as the Falcons produced 314 yards of total offense. That continued in the third quarter when Brown broke two tackles for an 81-yard touchdown -- but that success was sandwiched by a pair of SK touchdowns. Ryan Williams scored on touchdown runs of 14 and 73 yards to give the Wolves a 54-28 lead headed into the final period. Those runs gave SK (4-2, 3-0) a pair of 100-yard rushers as Williams finished with 122 yards on six carries. The Wolves rushed for 409 yards and had 473 yards of total offense.

The 33-point margin of victory was the largest for the Wolves since last year’s 39-6 win against Clover Park. The Wolves face the Warriors in nonleague play at 7 p.m. Friday at Harry E. Lang Stadium.
