"We got off to a bit of a slow start," SBHS Head Football Coach Tom Sanchez told the Herald. "We were on the verge of breaking it open in the first half, but they returned the kickoff after our second score for a touchdown, and that gave them some life. We played much better in the second half and were able to score on four straight possessions."
Ryan Overstake rushed the ball for 217 yards rushing on 17 carries.
"He really played well in the second half," Sanchez said. "The offensive line was able to play well also.
The Indians ran for 285 yards compared to 189 for Chief Leschi. South Bend added 37 yards passing, and the Warriors (0-7) passed for 72 yards.
"We forced four turnovers on defense and did a decent job of limiting their big plays with the exception of the kickoff return," Sanchez said.
Ben Byington led the charge on defense for the Tribe with 13 total tackles (6 solos) and a fumble recovery. AJ Sanchez and Kobe Salas collected 9 total tackles apiece, and they each recovered a fumble. Josiah Markwell picked off a pass.
The Indians, now 3-4 overall, are off this week. Their next game is Thursday, October 30 at Ilwaco.
