Big Game for Evan!!!

Evan's football team played against Meridian on Saturday morning, at Squalicum High School in Bellingham. After watching our Nooksack High School team get beaten badly by Meridian the night before, on our home turf, it was unsure just how Evan's team would fare.

Great news... they did awesome! Won the game with a score of 19-7. Actually had 5 touchdowns total, but two were called back due to holding penalties. But alas, out of the 3 TD's scored for our team, Evan made two of them!!! And they were both beauties. The kid has some fast legs on him, and when he decides to turn it on, look out.... hard to catch him.

The whole team played really great this weekend, and has vastly improved over the past couple of weeks. Very exciting to see a bunch of first year tackle football players come together and learn so much, so fast!!! :-)

Evan played great, both on offense and on defense. He plays a lot of the game, and must really get worn out. However, he doesn't stop!!! He nearly made a great pass reception at the end of the game, that would have led to yet another touchdown. Just missed it!!!

It was an exciting game, and fun to watch. All of the kids did great, and had a lot of fun beating the Meridian team. :-)

Way to go Nooksack!!! Way to Go Evan!!!
