South Whidbey quarterback Hunter Hawkins completed 11-of-18 passes for 200 yards Friday as the Falcon football team beat Cedarcrest 22-14 while upsetting the Red Wolves' homecoming festivities.

Wide receiver Nick Tenuta caught nine, including a 65-yard bomb for a touchdown. Danny Zuver ran one in for six and TJ Russell had a 28-yard field goal.

Not to be outdone, the defense chipped in for another TD on a Jon Poolman interception.

"It was quite a night," said defensive coordinator Damian Greene. "Nick was on fire."
