Sports roundup: Borderites undone by Sehome offense in home opener


Sehome set the tone early in Blaine football’s home opener September 9 when sophomore Andre Watson returned the opening kickoff 86 yards for a touchdown. The Borderites would never fully recover and go on to give up six more touchdowns, losing 49-6.

Besides three consecutive 15-yard penalties in the second quarter and a run from senior Larry Creasey to get Blaine to Sehome's 25-yard line, the first half was all the Mariners. Stopping the Borderites, freshman quarterback Nolan Wright found 6-foot-6 senior Braddock Duckworth to take the Mariners into halftime with a 34-0 lead.

Blaine scored at the end of the fourth quarter when sophomore quarterback Colin Davis found junior wide receiver Riley Ihde for a 26-yard touchdown pass. 

Blaine had a total of 72 passing yards to Sehome’s 212. Creasy had nine carries for a total of 17 yards.

The Borderites will travel to Vashon on Friday, September 16 to play at 6 p.m. They are then back at home Friday, September 23 against King’s High School at 7 p.m. Blaine is 0-2 this season.
