Hashmarks galore for defense

Hashmarks galore

It’s obvious South Kitsap’s defense played a stellar game when more than 20 hashmarks are awarded to SK players in one game.

A longtime tradition with SK football, a hashmark is a statistic handed out to SK players who make a tackle that puts the offensive player on their back. A sack of the quarterback from the backside that forces him on his frontside also counts.

It was not revealed who earned the hashmarks, but linebackers Andy Sund and Jeff Goodwin, lineman Matt Christenbury, and defensive end John Enbom put some licks on NK quarterbacks Chad Foster and Mike Good.

SK penalties unacceptable

SK coach D.J. Sigurdson said the one negative that came out of the NK game was the number of infractions called on SK.

The Wolves committed 10 penalties for 61 yards compared to the Vikings’ two penalties.

Sigurdson said he would never criticize officiating.

“They called what they saw,” Sigurdson said. “It seemed a little lopsided but sometimes our kids get a little aggressive and they get their hands inside the frame of the body and the official may see a little tug.”

SK gets healthy

What looked like a battered crew three weeks ago is starting to look healthy again.

Senior lineman Chris Krueger returned to the lineup last week after sitting out two weeks with a shoulder injury.

Senior defensive end and co-captain Sean Banks also returned after suffering a shoulder injury two weeks ago.

Senior lineman Buddy Anderson, who suffered a knee injury nearly four weeks ago, may make his return at Shelton Friday.
