The Hawks’ football season came to a end Saturday night, as they came up short 31-21 against the Mountainview Thunder at Mckenzie Stadium in Vancouver.

The Hawks struggled early to get a rhythm going and going 3-and-out on the first drive.

Mountainview would score early after the punt from Terrace, giving them a 7-0 lead with 7:04 to go in the first quarter.

At the beginning of the 2nd quarter, Terrace forced Mountainview to punt. On the first offensive play of their drive, Hawks quarterback, Justin Hopkins would throw his first interception of the game.

Immediately following the interception, the Thunder had a turnover of their own. Senior linebacker, Brett Potter forcing

the fumble that junior defensive tackle, James Poellinger recovered.

After a few big runs from senior running back, Chance Ragsdale the Hawks entered the redzone, where on a 3rd & goal on the 1, Chance Ragsdale scored his first touchdown of the night, tying the game at 7 with 5:20 left in the 2nd quarter.

The Thunder would rumble back right away with a kickoff return for a touchdown, changing the momentum right back to Mountainview.

“That was just quite a momentum change,”  Head Coach Tony Umayam said.

Mountainview would score again before the half to make it 21-7.

Before the end of the half, Hopkins would throw his second pick of the night, going into halftime, down 21-7.

After a couple big runs from Ragsdale and a 39 yard pass to junior tight end, Austin Bates, the Hawks would direct snap to Ragsdale for a 3 yard touchdown, Terrace still down, 21-14 with 6:14 left in the 3rd.

Mountainview would strike back quickly again with a huge run to take the 28-14 lead, with 5:30 left in the 3rd.

At the start of the 4th quarter, the Hawks would have great field position from a punt fielded at the Hawk 46. They would drive down the field in a couple minutes and with 9:15 to go, Hopkins would rush 17 yards for the score, Terrace still down 28-21.

With 1:45 left, Mountainview would kick a short field goal, to the game out of reach for the Hawks, final score being the Mountainview Thunder 31 and our Mountlake Terrace Hawks 21.

“We feel bad about the loss, but good about the effort,” Umayam said.

Looking forward to next year, Umayam is a little worried about losing Ragsdale, but not concered about too much else.

“We don’t have a lot of seniors, we had a few really good seniors.” Umayam said. “We have a good number returning next year.”

Despite the lack of seniority, the Hawks will still lose a few seniors on the line, one of the most prominent, senior offensive and defensive tackle, Jevin Pahinui.

“The past 4 years have been a bumpy ride, but through those years the Terrace football program has been on a rise,” Pahinui said. “I’m more then happy to be apart of a back to back playoff appearance in school history.”

The Hawks finished the season with a 5-5 record.
