We were excited to play Everett this week because we knew they were physical and that we needed to play a team like that to take the next step in our development. We also have historically been decent rivals because of the closeness of our location. We started on offense and Everett made us earn the first drive but we pushed forward into the end zone. Our first defensive series we forced a 3 and out. 2nd offensive series was a quick touchdown and we were off and rolling.
Our defensive was stellar and swarmed around and created turnovers. Our offense put up 40 points in the first half. The 2nd half we rotated people in and Everett kept fighting but we ended the game at a 54-0 win.
This was important for us because the rest of our schedule gets tougher from here which is ideal to prep us for what we would face in the playoffs. One of the things that I’m very excited about is the cohesion we have. We have truly bought into each other. We are one unit. We are going to surprise people.
This week we play Tacoma who is enjoying success this year and is 3-0. It’s important that we make a statement during this game to take full control over the division. We are ready.
