R.A. Long Claims First Postseason Win With 16-14 Over Tumwater

Written by Bryan Levesque on November 7, 2009

Tumwater is no stranger to winning playoff games, heck they are no stranger to winning state championships.

R.A. Long had never won a post season football game.

That all changed Friday night as the Lumberjacks held off the T-Birds 16-14 at Longview Memorial Stadium.

Jacks QB William Yordy hit WR Dylan Hopkins from  38 yards out to go ahead with 3:21 remaining in the game. Yordy also had a 32 yard rushing TD in the first quarter.

Tumwater had 6 turnovers in the loss.

R.A. Long improves to 8-2 with the win. The Lumberjacks will travel to #2 Archbishop Murphy (8-1) on Friday/Saturday for the first round of the WIAA playoffs.

Tumwater falls to 6-4 with the loss. The T-Birds season is over.
