Falcons club Cowboys / Football

After winning a nail-biter over Friday Harbor in the season opener, the South Whidbey High School football team went the easy route in game No. 2, thumping visiting Chimacum 49-6 Friday, Sept. 7.

Caoch Mark Hodson was happy with much that he saw from his club, including that the entire roster received playing time.

“Chimacum pushed us around some last year, so it was nice to show a little bit of improvement,” he said.

The Cowboys won the 2017 contest 13-6.

“It was a good test to see how much we have improved; I am pretty happy with the win.”

Hodson also liked the play of his defense, which kept Chimacum (0-2) out of the end zone until the final minute when the Cowboys scored against the Falcons’ reserves.

He was especially pleased with the effort of defensive backs Kody Newman, Caden Spear, Alex Black and Bodie Hezel, who “played really well.”

As for the Falcon offense, Hodson noted its ability to come up with some big plays. CH Chapman scored on runs of 40 and 35 yards, and Spear caught a 60-yard TD pass from Newman.

Spear finished with 102 yards rushing, Chapman had 92 yards and Clay O’Brien, who set up several scores with nice runs, added 87.

In addition to connecting with Spear for a score, Newman ran for two others.

Kole Nelson ran for a 20-yard TD and kicked six extra points; and Aiden Coleman rushed for a score.

The Falcons scored two touchdowns in each of the first three quarters to pull away.

South Whidbey (2-0) travels to Chelan (1-1) for a 7 p.m. game on Friday, Sept. 14. The Falcons will spend the night and then the two JV teams will meet Saturday.
