BATTLE GROUND — Quadrese Teague already has made his presence felt in multiple ways for Hudson’s Bay’s football team this season as a first-year player.
Add the backfield to the mix now, too.
In his first game the backfield, the senior rushed for a game-high 122 yards on 17 carries and scored two touchdowns, including a 1-yard interception return for a score that proved to be the go-ahead score for the Eagles in their 16-13 victory over Prairie on Friday at District Stadium.
Teague also had four catches for 40 yards a week after returning two kickoffs for touchdowns. touchdowns for
Lions knew the speedster Teague would be explosive as receiver and special teams this season, and added after the game, “we knew we have to get him the ball more often.”
Friday, Teague teammed up with all-league running back Marco Cadiz, as the two combined for 192 yards on 37 carries.
While the Falcons were indeed aggressive throwing the ball downfield taking six shots of 20 or more yards throughout the contest, they failed to connect on any of them-until they ran a trick play.
Late in the fourth, Falcon wideout Zach Wright took a lateral from quarterback Jayson Maddux and chucked it downfield to a wide-open Nolan Mickenham who dashed 63 yards before being chased down by Teague, who intercepted the pass.
Maddux finished 7 of 18 passing for 69 yards and a touchdown.
His 10-yard touchdown to Izaiah Ward in the fourth quarter made it a 16-13 game.
