Neah Bay’s seniors punched the clock early Saturday as the young Red Devils saw a huge chunk of playing time in a 60-0 win over visiting Crescent.

 

Josiah Greene hit three first quarter touchdowns; a 61-yard run, a 24-yard interception return and a 54-yard pass to Zeke Greene to lead a Neah Bay onslaught that went to 32-0 midway through the opening frame.

 

With the game in hand, Josiah Greene turned quarterback duties over to his eighth-grade kid brother, Ben, who immediately connected with freshman Cole Svec on a 25-yard scoring toss to end the first quarter with a 40-0 Devils lead.

 

The younger Greene put up three touchdowns in the second half.

 

Neah Bay (4-0, 7-0) hosts Clallam Bay (1-3, 2-6) on Friday night in the last regular season game for both teams. The Bruins fell in the final seconds to Tulalip Heritage (2-2, 2-4) on Friday.

 

Crescent (0-4, 0-8) closes out its regular season slate with its Homecoming game Saturday against Lopez (2-2, 5-2). The Lobos lost to Lummi 54-28 on Friday.
