On Sept. 20, the Timberline Blazers (3-1) takes on a challenge towards the undefeated Central Kitsap Cougars.
“It should be a good game, if they [Timberline] can keep their [Central Kitsap] quarterback back,” said senior cheerleader, Madison Long. Long was excited to participate in her last Homecoming game, “more people show up, and it’s nice to have others [royalty] at the field with us.”
Timberline’s senior quarterback, Hunter Campau had full confidence in leading the game to another win from last week’s victory towards Gig Harbor. Campau believes that against the Cougars, the Blazers will have a “good chance, [and a] close game, we’ll win… we’ll score more [than our previous game].”
At halftime there was first a firework show, then followed by a cheerleader, and a band performance. Then the homecoming court members rode to the stage, in corvettes. While standing on the stage, the senior court members all each received artificial candles, and whoever held a candle that lit up was this year’s homecoming king and queen. Who were revealed to be Lisa Lam and William Brumbelow. Following the reveal, came a another performance by the Timberline Dance team.
Before the game, Campau admitted that the Timberline offensive-of-line could have used a few improvements in their technique. Though, after the game, Campau had a realization that the Blazers “offensive [had actually] improved a lot.”
Throughout the night, Campau’s favorite play had been “the touchdown to Max [which had been called out].” As well, Campau’s defining moments of the night was “getting a jump on the other team early on in the game. [It] really helped in the long run.”
Following the advice of coach Nick Mullen, “[to] trust your instinct, and you got this,” says Campau. Campau had went through a big night, with a total of six touchdowns.
Final score: 41-13 Timberline Blazers
