Hockinson’s dynamic offensive pass game and aggressive defense was too much in the regular season finale.
Junior QB Jared Oldham passed for 245 yards to seven different receivers.
“With so many playmakers and athletes on the field, we just really pick defenses apart and I think we have one of the best offenses in the league because of it.” Oldham said.
While the Hawks would get a few of those big plays called back due to penalties, it didn’t seem to stop them from scoring at will.
Defensively the Hawks were solid as well, holding Washougal to 110 yards.
Hale Prior had two scores and an interception
“Our defense really builds off each other,” Prior said. “When you have linebackers like Wheeler and Domingos, we all try and compete to get those big stops and once we watch a little more film, we can be really dangerous.”
Washougal would get within scoring distance a few times throughout the night but would ultimately come up short when converting on 4th down opportunities near the goal line.
The Hawks (7-2, 6-1) head to the postseason after finishing second in the 2A Greater St. Helens League.
