“We just ran it,” he said. “We didn’t try to go north, south, east and west. We just went north and south.
“Sitka was not a bad team at all. We just had a few older boys that were more schooled up.”
Mark McGregor rushed 17 times for 110 yards. He also had a touchdown and an interception. Konstantin Reutov had seven rushes for 67 yards, while Tommy Bowe had five rushes for 46 yards and a touchdown.
