Amrine also praised the play of Jayden Hardeman along with the other members of the Hilanders’ defensive backfield.
Webb had 16 carries for 85 yards, and Coleman completed 11 of 15 passes for 88 yards. The Hilanders rushed for 197 of their 298 total yards, while holding Heritage to 168 total yards.

Hockinson 59, R.A. Long 7: Seth Klander caught a 12-yard touchdown pass from Owen Enriquez in the second quarter as the Lumberjacks avoided the shutout in the Greater St. Helens 2A League opener for both teams at Nautilus Field on Friday in Hockinson.
“They had a high-powered aerial assault and must’ve passed for some 300 yards,” RAL coach Dave McDaniel said. “We were ready for it, but their receivers were big and went up for the ball with their size advantage. They know what they’re good at and stuck with it.”
Enriquez passed for 128 yards, and Saige Raymond rushed for 42 yards.
“Owen had a good game, but we kept shooting ourselves in the foot,” McDaniel said. “We’d get a first down, then we’d fumble it away or turn it over.”
McDaniel also praised the defensive play of Tanner Rybnikar.
