Bulldogs chew up Wolves in non-league win

66-33 win over Sequim

Montesano’s offense shook off the road rust quickly, amassing 709 yards of offense, including 521 yards rushing, en route to an entertaining non-league win over Sequim on Friday night (Sept. 9).

Junior running back Carson Klinger ran for 229 yards on 21 carries and scored seven total touchdowns, five of them rushing. He also caught a 34-yard TD pass from Trevor Ridgway and ran back a kickoff 81 yards for a score.

“When you get more than 500 yards rushing, you know your offensive line — Hayden Klinger, Taylor Rupe, Ben Lopez, Cole Bradbury, Jared Wallace and tight end Tyler Reninger — is having a good night,” Montesano head coach Terry Jensen said. “Carson played well and had great vision. Trevor played well and made good decisions out there. We made a lot of mistakes, but I’m really proud of the way the kids competed.”

The Wolves stayed in the game by utilizing their special teams. The hosts ran back three kickoff returns for touchdowns and had short fields as well.

Ridgway ran for 94 yards on six carries and threw for 188 yards on 10-of-15 attempts and two scores. Nick Chapman also caught a 15-yard touchdown pass and Dakoyta Reninger led the team with four receptions for 75 yards.

Defensively, Ridgway, Chapman and Reninger each had an interception. Rupe, Kai Olson and Nathan Olson were cited for their defensive work, including sacks for Kai and Nathan Olson.

On Friday, Sept. 16, Montesano travels to Castle Rock.
