Santos’s three TD passes not enough as Hazen falls to Kennedy

Hazen is now 2-6 overall and 1-5 in the North Puget Sound League. They play at Tahmoa on Friday in their final regular season game.

Hazen’s Julian Santos threw for three touchdowns Friday but it was not enough as the Kennedy Catholic Lancers topped the Highlanders 49-26 at Kennedy High School.

Hazen got things started when Santos hit Spencer Finnell for a 42-yard touchdown pass about half way through the first quarter to give Hazen a 7-0 lead. But in less than two minutes, Kennedy tied the game with a 42-yard touchdown pass of their own. But before the quarter was out, Santos connected with Joe Tryon on a 4-yard touchdown pass to give the Highlanders a 13-7 lead  as the second quarter began.

But Kennedy scored twice in the second, first on a 5-yard touchdown pass and then on a 31-yard run and the teams headed to halftime with the Lancers up 21-13.

Kennedy kept their momentum going through the break, scoring twice in the early third quarter on a 30-yard pass play and then a 25-yard pass play to give the Lancers a 35-13 lead.

Hazen battled back though, with Santos tossing his third TD to Tryon for a 12-yard scoring pass, Tryon’s second score of the game. Then, a minute later, Jaeger Scheppe had  14-yard touchdown run to bring the score to 25-26 as the third quarter ended.

But that was as close as Hazen would get, as Kennedy’s defense stiffened up and kept Hazen out of the endzone while their offense was able to score twice more, on two more pass plays to make it a 49-26 final.

Hazen is now 2-6 overall and 1-5 in the North Puget Sound League. They play at Tahmoa on Friday in their final regular season game.
