Darrington found its stride after a sluggish first quarter, racking up 279 yards on the ground and generally outclassing Evergreen Lutheran.
Lucas Reuwsaat and Evan Couch got virtually all the carries in the Loggers’ run-heavy offense, and each was a threat to score each time he touched the football.
Reuwsaat carried 16 times for 154 yards and a touchdown, added a 78-yard kickoff return score and caught a 15-yard touchdown pass from quarterback Richard Zinnato.
The Eagles chose to kick directly to Reuwsaat to open the second half, and he easily evaded the eight Evergreen Lutheran defenders on his way to the end zone, giving Darrington a 30-0 lead.
Couch complemented Reuwsaat by carrying nine times for 88 yards and three touchdowns.
“We didn’t execute as well as we could have early in the game, but I was proud of our kids for staying with it,” Darrington coach Dr. Buck Marsh said.
The Loggers, in their first full season of eight-man football, moved to 2-1.
