Chief Kanim blasts Woodbrook
Going 3-0 on the season, the Chief Kanim varsity football team defeated Woodbrook of Tacoma last week 25-6. The Hawks' defense started out by shutting down Woodbrook's offense. On their first possession, Aladdin Schirmer scored on a 5-yard touchdown pass from Ian Ilgenfritz, but the extra point was blocked. The Hawks did more damage in the second quarter when Ilgenfritz hit Ryan Herman for a 48-yard touchdown strike. Herman kicked the extra point and the Woodbrook defense was stunned. Before halftime the Hawks finished off another drive with a 33-yard field goal by Herman.
In the second half, Woodbrook used their speed and toughness to slow down the potent Hawk offense. Woodbrook scored the first points on the Hawks this season in the third quarter with a touchdown. Late in the game, Brian Jewett intercepted a pass and returned it for a touchdown. Herman was true on the extra point and the game ended at 25-6.
