2B Football: Loggers Chop Down Timberwolves on Homecoming
ONALASKA – The Loggers outlasted Morton White Pass here Friday night in order to harvest a 26-19 victory in Central 2B Mountain Division play.
“What a ballgame. Our coaching staff is so incredibly proud of the way that these kids played tonight,” said Onalaska coach Mazen Saade. “It was nice to go out and get the win on senior night and homecoming.”
The Timberwolves staked out an early 7-0 lead when quarterback Kaleb Rashoff got loose for a 16-yard touchdown run in the first quarter.
That score lasted into the second quarter but then the Loggers went on a 26-0 run that put the game out of reach for Morton-White Pass. Those scores came on a pair of touchdown runs of 11 and two yards, respectively, for Ashton Haight, and a twen set of three-yard touchdown runs by Lazaro Rodriguez.
Thanks to a big push upfront by the Onalaska offensive line the Loggers were able to wrack up 434 rushing yards on the night. Haigh led the way with 214 yards on 26 carries while Rodriguez added 101 yards on 21 carries and quarterback Lucas Kreger romped 11 times for 105 yards. Kreger also threw one pass for 35 yards to Kaden Allison.
“I thought Ashton ran great and his offensive line blocked hard for him tonight,” said Saade of Haight. “He’s a hard nosed football player who likes to run down hill and he loves this kind of competition.”
Morton-White Pass mounted a futile comeback attempt in the fourth quarter with 12 unanswered points that brought them within one score when the final horn blew. First Rashoff found Matt Poquette for a 73-yard touchdown pass and then Rashoff got loose himself for a 15-yard touchdown run. Rashoff finished the game with two rushing touchdowns and a throwing touchdown. However, he was only able to connect on six of his 22 pass attempts, including just one completion to his favorite target, Poquette.
Saade was extra proud of his team’s defensive effort that limited Timberwolves’ juggernaut Matt Poquette to just that one catch.
“Let the newspaper note the way our kids focused and took away a player of the caliber of Matt Poquette is pretty impressive,” said Saade. “This is a big game for us. A lot of people call us young and inexperienced, but we don’t believe in that. We just believe in the next guy up and going out and playing football.”
Next Friday Onalaska (5-2, 3-2 division) will play at Castle Rock while Morton-White Pass (3-4, 1-3 division) will host Adna in Randle.
Napavine Cruises Past La Conner
LA CONNER — Napavine scored 35 points in the first half to cruise to a 48-6 win over La Conner in a nonleague football game here on Friday night.
Napavine’s Dawson Stanley led the way rushing with six carries for 96 yards and a score, and Stanley completed 8 of 15 passes for 184 yards and two touchdowns. Cole Van Wyck added six carries for 47 yards and three touchdowns.
Jordan Purvis recorded four catches for 83 yards and a touchdown and Noah Lantz caught two passes for 59 yards and a touchdown.
“I thought we did a good job, the older kids did a good job of executing in the first half,” Napavine coach Josh Fay said. “I thought our O-line was a bright spot for us tonight. I liked the execution offensively and defensively, we were lights out.”
The scoring started with a 3-yard run by Van Wyck. Stanley fired a 4-yard strike to Purvis and followed it up with a 43-yard pass to Noah Lantz for a 21-0 lead after one quarter.
Napavine was able to play a lot of players in the game with such a big lead early on.
“It was nice, we were able to sub down. We wanted some emphasis on working on some of our depth and rotating our O-line guys in there,” Fay said. “Same thing at our linebacker positions, we played a couple extra guys early in the game.”
Napavine (6-1, 4-0 division) plays on the road against Rainier next Friday in a big SWW 2B Division matchup.
Wahkiakum Takes Down Toledo
CATHLAMET — Toledo’s offense struggled at times and Wahkiakum took advantage, as the Mules won 18-7 in a SWW 2B River Division football game here on Friday.
Toledo had more total offense than Wahkiakum 220-192, but the Indians’ drives didn’t result in points and included two lost fumbles.
“I think they had a good gameplan against us and made it hard against us. Those drives, we were driving down the field before we fumbled,” Toledo coach Mike Christensen said.
Keyton Wallace led the Indians with 91 yards on 14 carries. Colby Cherrington added 52 yards on 12 carries and a score and Ethan Buck added nine carries on 34 yards.
Quarterback Duke Schaplow was 2 of 4 passing for 41 yards, and Fano Arceo-Hansen caught one pass for 26 yards.
Wahkiakum scored in the first quarter on a 5-yard pass from Lucas Brown to Zach Brown for a 6-0 lead. Toledo scored in the second quarter on a Cherrington 4-yard run, and the extra point gave the Indians a 7-6 lead at halftime.
The Mules regained the lead in the third quarter on a pass from Lucas Brown to Chance Cothren from 7-yards out. Wahkiakum iced the game in the fourth quarter with a drive that lasted most of the quarter and ended with a Lucas Brown 1-yard run into the endzone to seal the win.
“We got outplayed, out coached, it was a rough game all around. They came ready to play and we were a little flat I think,” Christensen said. “I expect more of our defense. They had a good game plan and they threw a lot more than we thought. We didn’t have it tonight and they made those plays.”
Toledo (4-3, 2-1 division) hosts top-ranked Kalama next Friday in a River Division showdown.
Pirates Pummel Chief Leschi 42-0
ADNA – The Pirates put away Chief Leschi by a score of 42-0 in SWW 2B League Mountain Division here Friday night thanks to a balanced attack by old salty dogs and those still looking to find their sea legs.
Adna wasted little time putting distance between themselves and the Warriors as they scored 21 points in the first quarter on a one yard pass from Conner Weed to Brady Collins, a five yard run from Chance Fay and a 17-yard run by Ashton Dowell. Weed sent all of the ceremonial point after kicks through the uprights.
After that the Pirates let their reserves get in some work under the bright lights in front of a homecoming crowd.
“We let our starters go for about eight minutes and after that we turned it over to our reserves and JV guys,” said Adna coach KC Johnson, who was happy for an opportunity to rest up some of his heavy hitters. “It was a good night. A good homecoming win.”
Although the starters were supposed to be resting by the second quarter, Brady Collins found his way back on the field for a punt return and made the most of the opportunity by slicing through the defense for a 53-yard touchdown that extended the Adna lead to 28-0.
After a scoreless third quarter the Pirates again found paydirt when Ryan young notched a pair of touchdown runs of 2 and 19 yards. Subbing in at kicker for Weed in the second half was Rodolfo Hernandez who drilled both of his PAT attempts.
“I was relay excited with Zach Berg and Ryan Young. I thought they played really well. And a lot of our kids played good defense. We had good tackling,” said Johnson. “The takeaway is I told the boys is we’re in the business of playing football not embarrassing kids so we’re going to go out and make it a good night for everybody.”
Adna (5-2, 3-1 conference) will travel to Randle next Friday for a matchup with Morton-White Pass.
Big Second Half Sends Cardinals Soaring Past Mossyrock
MOSSYROCK – After two quarters of football here Friday night the Vikings and Cardinals were all knotted up at 20 points each. That tie didn’t last long into the second half though as Winlock went to work carving out a 54-26 Central 2B River Division victory.
“The first half they didn’t do bad at all. They competed,” said Mossyrock coach Irvin Stevenson. “But the second half, which is normally where the kids seem to pick it up and o a lot better, they didn’t do that today. They seemed to just go downhill today.”
Bryce Cline paced Winlock with three touchdowns. That scoring output started in the first quarter with a 40-yard touchdown run. Cline then added a 67-yard rush and the second half and returned an interception for a touchdown in the fourth quarter to cap the Cardinals scoring. Seth LIndsey added touchdown runs of 12 and 55 yards for Winlock while Dawson Hall punched in two rushing touchdowns as well. Nicholas Patching tossed the Cardinals only touchdown pass with a scoring strike to Hall.
For the Vikings offense quarterback Aiden West threw for 142 yards and three touchdowns on 18 passes, including touchdown tosses to Brennan Shriver of 20 and 81 yards. T.J. Villanueva led the Vikings rushing attack with 269 yards on 43 carries, including a 45-yard touchdown.
Despite the loss Stevenson was particularly pleased with the performance of Villanueva.
“He’s just absolutely phenomenal, and he’s only a freshman,” said Stevenson. “Just one person isn’t going to bring him down.”
Stevenson also pointed out the defensive effort of Nick Fried and Villanueva, noting that Fried had 10 tackles, eight of them solo, and Villanueva added nine tackles.
“Other than those two we didn’t have a lot going on tonight,” said Stevenson.
Winlock (2-5, 1-3 division) will host Wahkiakum next Friday while Mossyrock (0-7) will travel to Toutle Lake.
Titans Thwart Fishermen
ILWACO — Pe Ell-Willapa Valley totaled 390 yards on the ground to run past Ilwaco 38-20 in a SWW 2B Coastal Division football game here on Friday night.
Tyson Nissell ran for 182 yards on 21 carries and a touchdown and Peter Hamilton added 156 yards on 13 carries for the Titans.
PWV quarterback Matt Pearson completed 2 of 3 passes for 17 yards and Cub Bair caught one pass for 10 yards.
“We slacked in the first half. Their P-line was kicking the crap out of our D-line,” PWV coach Josh Fluke said. “At halftime with some persuasive speech to the boys and some adjustments, we came out with some intensity and dominated and looked good.”
The Titans started the scoring in the first quarter with a Max Smith 8-yard run. Ilwaco answered with a 10-yard touchdown run from Brandon McMullen. Matt Pearson scored on a 1-yard run for a 14-6 lead after one quarter.
McMullen scored again on a 4-yard run in the second quarter to cut the PWV lead to 14-12 at halftime.
Tyson Nissell started the scoring in the third quarter with a 7-yard run. Ilwaco scored next on a 20-yard pass from Ethan Personius to McMullen, with the Titans leading 22-20 heading into the fourth.
Smith had a pair of rushing touchdowns, one from 10-yards out and another from 6-yards away to help PWV earn the win.
PWV (5-2, 3-0 division) hosts North Beach next Friday on senior night in Menlo.
