Four Tenino ball carriers rushed for over 100 yards and the Beavers had no trouble fending off a King’s Way Christian team for a 56-21 non-league road victory Friday night.
The Beavers pulled their starters in the second quarter while holding a 56-0 lead and played their freshmen the rest of the way while cruising to victory.
Tailback Dylan Spicer led the rushing attack with three touchdowns and over 100 yards rushing, while senior Takari Hickle, Tristan Whitaker and Gavin Watson each rushed for over 100 yards as well.
“The offensive and defensive lines played really well,” Tenino coach Cary Nagel said. “It was a team effort. We were firing on all cylinders and it helped us get an early lead. It was a good night. The kids played hard and King’s Way was a good host. They battled.”
Tenino (1-0) continues non-league play when it hosts rival Rainier at 7 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 10.
“It’s a big-time rivalry game for us,” Nagel said. “It should be a good one.”
