NASELLE — Jason Harman had two interceptions, returning one for a touchdown and setting up a TD with another, helping Naselle to a 58-16 homecoming victory over Darrington Friday, Oct. 18.
The Comets did whatever they wanted on just about every offensive play. They were five for five on two-point conversions, often jogging in untouched.
On plays where Darrington had more field to cover, they found even bigger openings, and scored touchdowns on five of 17 offensive plays in the first half.
Joey Strange had a long run on each of the Comets’ first two possessions on his way to a six-carry, 106-yard, two TD performance.
Harman got his first interception on a pass that Darrington quarterback Richard Zinnato put up for grabs with linebacker Ethan Lindstrom leaping at him. Harman took it to the end zone for a three-score lead.
With Naselle up 40-0, Harman wrestled a jump ball away from the Darrington receiver, then reversed field and reached the end zone. Despite a holding call negating the touchdown, the play set Naselle up with a short field, allowing them to score for a 46-0 halftime lead.
At halftime Jackie Steenerson was crowned homecoming queen. Fa’aoso Tutu’u was crowned king on a night when he had two touchdowns rushing and one receiving.
Ethan Lindstrom and Oggie Lopez were senior princes, while Hannah Footh and Zanith Wulf were senior princesses. The junior court consisted of Hollie Haataia and Warren Wirkkala. Hailey Lopez and George Wilson represented the sophomore class. Kolten Lindstrom and Brynn Tarabochia were the freshmen royalty.
