BURLINGTON, WA – The Burlington-Edison Tigers’ new up-tempo offense made a spectacular debut Friday night at Kirkby Field, scoring seemingly at will in the first half of their 42-28 victory over Meridian in Northwest Conference high school football.

The Burlington-Edison onslaught began early, as quarterback Mason Schwetz connected with Rudy Mataya on a 30-yard touchdown pass just 1:22 into the game. The first of Tanner Gates’ six extra points gave the Tigers a 7-0 lead.

Unfortunately for the Tigers, Schwetz, making his first start at the position his older brother held the previous two seasons, was injured two plays into Burlington-Edison’s second possession. Fortunately for the Tigers, freshman Hunter Anderson was solid in relief of Schwetz, with a lot of help from Burlington-Edison’s rushing attack.

Following Patrick Milstead’s recovery of a Trojan fumble into the end zone that made it 14-0, the Tigers set-up Meridians’ first score when the ball was snapped over the head of Burlington-Edison’s punter, leading to Letrez Jones’ 1-yard touchdown run that cut the lead to 14-6.

The Tigers barely flinched, as Hunter Jacobson raced 54 yards for a touchdown on Burlington-Edison’s next possession, followed by Anderson and Blake Dimock hooking-up on a 7-yard touchdown pass to cap the Tigers’ 28 point opening period.

Meridian cut the lead to 28-12 midway through the second quarter on a 6-yard touchdown pass from Trojans’ quarterback Tanner Tutterrow to Sam Chambers. Tutterow faced heavy pressure from the Tiger’s pass rush and finished 22 0f 41 for 299 yards, with three interceptions and two touchdown passes.

The Tigers capped the first half scoring when speedster Jae Evans sprinted 61 yards for a touchdown on his first carry of the season to put Burlington-Edison up 35-12 at the intermission.

Evans scored the game’s only third quarter touchdown on a 52-yard run and finished the game with 125 yards on just four carries, while Jacobson motored to 100 yards on just three carries as Burlington-Edison’s dynamic junior duo averaged 32.1 yards per carry and combined for 225 of the Tigers’ 243 rushing yards.

With his team leading 42-12, second year Tiger head coach Herb Lehman substituted freely in the fourth quarter as Meridian battled back to score two fourth quarter touchdowns and two two-point conversions to make the final score 42-28.

Presented by Skagit State Bank, the game was webcast live by SkagitRadioSports.com, featuring veteran announcer and former Tiger Scot Buchanan’s play-by-play, with former Tiger Mike Dynes adding commentary and stats.
