Naselle junior running back Jimmy Strange (44) prepares to fend off a South Bend defender during action in Naselle’s home opener Friday. The Comets won 52-8, sparked by five touchdowns by senior quarterback Ethan Lindstrom (9).

NASELLE, Wash. — Ethan Lindstrom led the way as the Naselle Comets began their 2019 season with a 52-8 nonleague win over South Bend Friday night at Naselle.

The senior quarterback ran in three touchdowns in the first quarter — including a 76-yard sprint — then added two more from closer range in the third.

Fa’aoso Tutu’u powered to a touchdown in the only score of the second quarter for a 28-0 halftime Comet lead.

Early in the third quarter, a rare foray into the air saw Lindstrom launch a 47-yard pass that fellow senior Oggie Lopez caught and ran in.

Senior Seth Hall produced South Bend’s lone touchdown when he ran the ball back 90 yards late in the third quarter. Junior Joshua Johnson added the two-point conversion.
