Hawks fall to Central Valley Again

June 25, 2006 - arenafootball2 (af2) - Everett Hawks News Release

Everett, WA. - After losing to the Central Valley Coyotes two weeks ago, the Hawks hoped for a different outcome on their home turf in front of 3,855 fans. The Hawks started on the right foot when QB Brian Baker completed a 22 yard TD pass to WR/DB Milton Myers with the second play from scrimmage. The Coyotes and future Schutt Offensive Player of the game QB Scott Rislov threw a 35 yard pass to WR/DB Lamonte Jones.

The score being tied with 9:48 left in the first quarter, the Hawks new player OS J.R. Thomas torched the Coyotes for a 44 yard touchdown to take a 14-7 lead. This seemed to spark the defense because on the Coyotes next drive the Hawks were able to stop the Coyotes with a crucial 4th and goal. While it seemed to be everything that the Hawks needed, it ended up to be the last of the Hawks solid play. With 0:47 seconds left in the 1st quarter the Hawks fumbled on their 1 yard line. Then after back to back penalties by the Hawks, Marvin Brown evened the score for the Coyotes at 14-14. It was all Coyotes after that.

Before the end of the half Coach Tony Wells replaced QB Brian Baker with QB Wes Beschorner after Baker went 16-10-0 for 114 yards and 2 touchdowns for the night. Beschorner looked promising for the Hawks after completing a 48 yard touchdown to Hassam Brockman, but the Coyotes were too much to handle leading 28-21 at the half.

In the second half the sloppy play of the Hawks continued. By the end of the game the Hawks had 13 penalties for 107 yards as well as 3 fumbles and 2 interceptions. The Coyotes took advantage of every mistake the Hawks made. Especially QB Scott Rislov who finished the night 28-17-0 for 249 yards and 7 TDs, while Wes Beschomer finished 17-11-2 with 2 TD passes and 2 TD runs.

Down 42-54 the Hawks hoped for once last chance with a onside kick with 3:03 left in the game, but the Coyotes easily recovered the kick and FB/LB Matt Guardia for the Coyotes ran the ball into the endzone to extend the lead to 61-42, which was ultimately the final score.
