Hasty huge in Bellevue's big win

J.R. Hasty rushed for three first-half touchdowns and another in the second half en route to a 271-yard rushing night as Bellevue High crushed national powerhouse De La Salle 39-20 at Qwest Field on Saturday.<br><br>

"Its all because of my line ... they did a great job," said Hasty.

Hasty, son of legendary WSU and NFL product James Hasty, took it to the house the very first time he touched the ball. Trailing 7-0, Bellevue's opening possession goes into the books as a one play drive -- the 5-11 200-pound senior took the ball off tackle and streaked 74 yards to paydirt.

De La Salle, of Concord, Calif., brought a streak of 151 consecutive victories into the game with Bellevue. The streak began during the 1992 season. They last suffered a defeat on December 7, 1991. It was the longest win streak in high school history. Bellevue is the three-time defending state 3-A champion.
