South Kitsap blows out 'Civil War' rival North Kitsap
June 12, 2008 · Updated 1:48 PM
Stephen Tucker rushed for 173 yards and the Wolves' defense stymied North Kitsap in a 41-7 win Friday night at Joe Knowles Field.
Drew Klopfstein recovered his own onside kick to start the game and South Kitsap (1-1) needed just 39 seconds to take a 6-0 lead when Tucker scored on a 1-yard run.
Devlan Miller helped extend that lead to 13-0 late in the first quarter when he scored on a 54-yard pass from Chad Tester.
It looked like North (0-2), which now has lost its last two games its South and 10 of the last 11 in the series, might close the Wolves' lead in the second quarter. They had a first down at the South 33-yard line, but quarterback Kevin Stringer was intercepted by Sean Korf and Tucker ran for a 76-yard touchdown on the following play to give the Wolves a 20-0 lead with 7 minutes, 39 seconds left in the second quarter.
The game never seemed in doubt again from that point.
North scored its lone touchdown on a 1-yard run by Kyle Brose with 56 seconds left in the first half, but Ryan Williams took the kickoff back 89 yards for a touchdown to give South a 27-7 halftime lead.
South submitted liberally in the second half and reserve running back Sean Allison scored on an 8-yard touchdown late in the third quarter and again on an 11-yard run with 8:21 left in the game.
South begins Narrows League Bridge Division play at 7 p.m. Friday at rival Central Kitsap.
