In a football game that paled in comparison to a fourth quarter injury that ended the action early, the Highline Pirates sailed to a 34-0 victory over Evergreen at Highline Memorial on Friday.
A player identified by a coach as Kenny Bui for Evergreen left in an ambulance, after the game was called with 3:35 remaining on the fourth quarter clock.
Bui is listed as a senior wide receiver and defensive back for the Wolverines. His condition was not known.
As for the game, Highline jumped out to an early lead and fended off Evergreen's offensive efforts from there.
Malik White to the left, Malik White to the right and Malik White up the middle was the recipe for the Pirates' success on their first drive.
The junior running back carried the ball all seven plays in an effort from 42 yards out into the end zone.
White capped off the drive with a 5-yard touchdown run, zigging and zagging up the middle.
Walker Taylor's kick was good after the touchdown for a 7-0 lead with 6:57 to play in the first quarter of what was the homecoming game for Highline.More ›
