South Kitsap rebounds with big win against Lincoln

What a difference a week makes.

After Central Kitsap seemingly moved the ball with ease last week, the Wolves' defense stepped up to help them earn a 32-7 Narrows League Bridge Division win against Lincoln on Friday night at the Lincoln Bowl in Tacoma.

South (2-2 overall, 1-0 Bridge Division) surrendered just 102 yards against the Abes after allowing 447 against Central. The Wolves also nearly earned their first shutout of the season until Damarkus Milner found Darryl Parnell for a 34-yard touchdown pass with 7 minutes, 59 seconds left in the game.

But the outcome was decided long before that as the Wolves held a 30-7 lead at that point.

It started on the first drive of the game when the snap went over Lincoln punter Kerry Stabler's head before he recovered it at his own 4-yard line. Two plays later, Stephen Tucker scored on a 3-yard carry to give the Wolves a 7-0 lead.

South extended its lead to 17-7 by halftime on a 65-yard run by Ryan Williams and a 23-yard field goal by Quincy Lyman. Williams rushed for 115 yards on nine carries.

The Wolves outgained Lincoln 291 to 102 and added another touchdown in the third quarter on a 7-yard run by Tucker. He finished with 82 yards and two touchdowns on 17 carries.

South's final touchdown came in the fourth quarter when Sean Allison scored on a 10-yard run to extend the Wolves' advantage to 30-0. The Wolves' final points came late in the game when another punt went over Stabler's head and this time rolled through the back of the end zone for a safety.

The Wolves return home for a 7 p.m. game Friday against Wilson.
