Cascade’s defense holds Stanwood to 113 yards

EVERETT — It took the Cascade Bruins one play and all of 11 seconds to get on the scoreboard.

The remaining 48 minutes, 49 seconds were owned by the Cascade defense.

Cascade running back Lorne Bridgford took the first play of the game 55 yards for a touchdown, and the Bruins defense held Stanwood to 105 yards rushing and 113 total offensive yards in a 28-7 Wesco North victory Friday night at Everett Memorial Stadium.

Cascade held Spartan running back Ryan Norman to just 47 yards on 20 carries.

The senior back entered the game as the Wesco North’s No. 3 rusher with 258 yards in three games.

“It was really a nice effort by the defense. The D-line made it real difficult to run. The defense had a real nice game, nice execution,” Cascade head coach Jake Huizinga said.

In contrast, Bridgford entered the game as the No. 4 rusher (47 carries for 237 yards) in the league and finished with 178 yards on 24 carries and two touchdowns.

“I was certain Lorne was a go-to-guy and he turned out to be,” Huizinga said of his senior back.

Though the offense performed well for Cascade, it was the Bruins’ defense that came up big for the second straight game.

Cascade shutout Everett 14-0 on Sept. 7 and Friday night limited Stanwood to eight first downs — four coming on the Spartans lone scoring drive.

Cascade’s Eric Koffski was taken away by ambulance after breaking his tibia.
