Sequim 58, Forks 7
(Forks) -- Any doubt about the potency of the Sequim offense entering the 2010 football season was erased after Friday's season opener at Forks.
The Wolves scored on 8 of their 9 first-half possessions, pounding the Spartans 58-7 in a non-league affair at Spartan Stadium.

Quarterback Drew Rickerson threw two touchdown strikes to fellow senior Joey Hall -- including a 17-yarder on the game-opening possession.
Rickerson also scrambled 20-yards for another score as the Wolves raced to a 16-0 advantage just 6 minutes into the contest.
Junior Frank Catelli, who split time between wide receiver and quarterback, ran for two touchdowns and threw a TD pass to junior Nick Ramirez.
Catelli's first TD -- a 16-yard keeper up the middle -- came a play after a Sequim block of a Brady Castellano punt that put the Wolves ahead 22-0.
Isaac Yamamoto rushed 3 times for 52 yards, scoring on a 41-yard romp in the second quarter that boosted the lead to 50-0.
Sophomore Jack Wiker, son of Sequim Coach Erik Wiker, had his first varsity touchdown on a 3-yard run that put Sequim ahead 58-0 with 1:49 left in the first half.
Sequim reserves played most of the second half as the clock ran continuously after intermission courtesy of the mercy rule.
Forks senior quarterback Brian Santman scored the only Spartans touchdown from 11 yards with 5:55 left in the third quarter.
Forks (0-1) will visit Port Angeles (1-0) Friday for another non-league tilt while Sequim (1-0) will host the Meridian Trojans next Saturday night.
