Though it was close at the half, the Tumwater football team put together a dominant defensive showing and pulled away in the second half to defeat Burlington-Edison on the road Friday, 34-7.
Carlos Matheney led the way for the Thunderbirds, rushing for 165 yards on 25 carries with two touchdowns, both in the first half. Starting quarterback Alex Overbay finished 4 for 12 for 93 yards, and backup Ethan Kastner went 3 for 6 with 66 yards and a long touchdown throw to Jacob Dillon.
Derek Thompson added a nine-yard touchdown for the T-Birds, and Tyler Criss took a 45-yard interception to the house to put the game firmly away in the fourth.
