The opening minutes set the tone for the La Center Wildcats in their homecoming game.
Matt Braaten intercepted a Tenino pass on the first drive of the game, setting up a 28-yard touchdown run from Jared Huddleston.
It was more of the same the rest of the night for the Wildcats.
Huddleston finished with 195 yards and two touchdowns. Conner Fulton added two rushing touchdowns, as well.
“We were nervous coming out, but we got fired up and took it all the way,” Huddleston said. “I give all credit to my linemen. Blocking was a huge part of this game.”
Wyatt Agguire and Tyrone Kulla also had touchdowns for La Center.
