Highclimbers Earn First Win

football highschoolShelton 42, Mount Tahoma 0.   Jake Henry rushed for 120 yards and four touchdowns and Brian Nault added a pair of rushing touchdowns in the third quarter to lead the Shelton Highclimbers to their first win of the season, a 42-0 romp over Mount Tahoma at Highclimbers Stadium in Shelton.

Henry did all of his damage on 12 rushes in the first half and carried just one more time the rest of the way. Nault went for 61 yards on seven carries and Gordon Henry amassed 57 yards as the Highclimbers racked up over 285 yards of rushing on the night.

The T-Birds have scored just 12 points all season and lost their top running back midway through the second quarter when Gregg Williams came up lame and was caught from behind on a 67 yard scamper. The T-Birds never seriously threatened again thanks to Nault’s eight tackles for loss.

Before tonight, the Highclimbers had scored just 44 points total. After nearly doubling their points for the season, they are now 1-7 overall and 1-4 in the 3A Narrows League. Meanwhile, Mount Tahoma dropped to 0-8.
