Kent Dunn and Carter Plowman each rushed for more than 100 yards for Laguna Blanca’s 8-man football team, but the Owls fell short against Windward, 26-18, on Saturday.

“We challenged our guys to come out with physicality and energy, which I thought they did. That resulted in the offensive line opening the gates for 250 yards total on the ground,” said coach Matt Escobar.

Dunn, the quarterback rushed for 117 yards and passed for 150 yards and three touchdowns. Plowman had 108 yards on 12 carries.

Wide reeiver Gabe Leon caught four passes for 102 yards and three TDs.

Special teams hurt the Owls as Windward scored two touchdowns on kickoff returns.

“All in all, I think our young team is getting better each week, They play hard and never quit. I think a close loss like this is going to motivate the guys to take the next step as a team,” said Escobar.
