Highlander football gets second win with blowout over Evergreen
Five different players scored six touchdowns for the Hazen High School football program this past week as the Highlanders picked up their second win of the season with a 41-26 victory at Evergreen.
Four of the touchdowns came on passes from quarterback Nolan Hoover.
Hazen jumped out to a quick lead on a 57-yard touchdown run by Ryan Wong, who added the extra point himself.
Next, Hoover picked up his first TD of the day with a 30-yard pass play to Marquise Lee to give the Highlanders a 14-0 lead.
But Evergreen answered back with a 7-yard touchdown pass of their own to pull it to 14-7. But that would be as close as they'd get all day.
Hoover responded with a 36-yard touchdown pass to Isaiah Davis to give the Highlanders a 21-7 lead after the first quarter.
In the second quarter, Hazen kept rolling with Khali Ali catching a 21-yard touchdown pass from Hoover and Joe Glaefke taking the ball into the end zone on a 2-yard run play to make it 34-7 at the midpoint.
Evergreen scored first in the second half on a 1-yard touchdown run to cut the lead to 20, but Hoover again found Davis, this time for a 6-yard touchdown pass.
Evergreen rallied in the fourth, scoring 12 points on a 15-yard run and a 70-yard pass, but the Highlanders were able to hold on for a 41-26 victory.
Hazen, 2-4, travel to Bainbridge Friday.
