Rebels Run Wild, Royals Defensively had no Answer
Everett,Washington-The Pacific Northwest was finally rewarded with a sunny Saturday for football. It didn’t take long for the West Sound Rebels offense to get cookin. Tyquan Bowie paced the offense with huge chunk yardage rushes all day long. He finished off the opening drive with an impressive touchdown run. (Bowie would finish the game with 13 carries for 116 yards, 1 TD, and 1, 2 point conversion.)
Jacob JT Taase, the Rebels gunslinger was at it again this week throwing for 3 more touchdowns, while rushing for another. Included in the touchdown mix was Kofi Goseer Jr, Demetrius Rackley, and an impressive 59 yarder to Thomas Alston. (Taase would finish with 202 passing yards and 4 overall touchdowns.)
Tavarus Breland, the Rebels free safety, got to see some action on the offensive side of the ball. Breland would have 5 rushes for 82 yards and 2 touchdowns, one of which went for a Rebels record 53 yards. The duo of Bowie and Breland finished the game combining for 198 yards rushing and 3 touchdowns.
The Rebels defense stymied the Royals quarterbacks all day long. The Defensive line created pressure forcing both quarterbacks to either make a bad decision, or to throw the ball away. The secondary ball hawked an interception (Kodi Martinez) in the red zone, while the Line backers locked down the middle of the field. Linebacker Michael Shannon also added an interception out of the Rover position. The only points the Royals were able to muster was an impressive 50 yard field goal right before half time.
Up next the 2-0 West Sound Rebels will host the 2-0 Tacoma Sabers, while the 0-3 Royals will travel to Tacoma to face the 0-2 Grit City Knights.
