Friday’s 2B FB Wrap: Cardinals Get First Win in Convincing Fashion
Cardinals Get First Win in Convincing Fashion
WINLOCK — Winlock snapped a two-year, 14-game losing streak on the gridiron Friday night with a rapid fire 61-6 defeat of Chief Leschi in front of their home fans in a nonleague 2B football matchup.
Senior running back Seth Lindsey did much of the heavy lifting for the Cardinals in the contest, amassing 246 yards and five touchdowns on just 12 carries.
The lone Chief Leschi score came in the third quarter when a momentary lapse of concentration allowed the Wariors to get loose for a 63-yard score. By that time though the Cardinals had replaced nearly all of their starters as they enjoyed a five score advantage.
“It was just nice to see the kids a little motivated and excited,” said Winlock coach Ernie Samples, following the Cardinals first win since October 16, 2015 when they defeated Wahkiakum 35-16 in front of a homecoming crowd. “We played well after a tough loss last week against Ocosta.”
Bryce Cline added 106 yards rushing and a touchdown to the Winlock tally while Dawson Hall chipped in 76 yards and a touchdown. Freshman Nathan Childers also got in on the fun, notching a 14-yard rushing touchdown in the third quarter.
Samples made sure to point out the effort of quarterback Nick Patching in attaining the much needed victory.
“His stats weren’t that great but he had a couple of pretty nice option reads and just did a great job of leading the offense and keeping everyone together,” said Samples. “It was probably one of the hardest played games that I’ve coached at Winlock.”
Winlock (1-3) will travel to Kalama next Friday for a league game.
Toledo Hangs On to Defeat Pe Ell-Willapa Valley
TOLEDO — Pe Ell-Willapa Valley scored with no time left on the clock and needed a 2-point conversion to tie the game, but the Titans’ attempt was stuffed as Toledo earned a 14-12 win in a SWW 2B League football game here on Friday night.
Titan running back Peter Hamilton tried to run it in to tie the game, but Toledo made the right play call at the end to keep Hamilton from converting.
“They were running the same play down our throat, and they’ve got a good running back. We thought they’d go back to that play and moved a safety over there to stop that play,” Toledo coach Mike Christensen said. “They ran that play and we had enough guys there to stop them.”
Hamilton ended the game with 85 yards on 17 carries and caught a touchdown pass as time expired.
Toledo’s Ethan Buck led all rushers with 184 yards on 13 carries and a touchdown, and teammate Keyton Wallace had 15 carries for 118 yards.
Toledo’s Gannon Madill completed 3 of 8 passes for 45 yards with one touchdown and one interception, and his PWV counterpart Matt Pearson was 9 of 15 for 102 yards and two touchdowns.
Ryan Shepherd led the Titans’ receiving corps, hauling in four passes for 47 yards, and Cub Bair had two catches for 51 yards. Toledo’s Fano Arceo-Hansen caught one pass for a 31-yard touchdown and Junior Arroyo had one catch for 11 yards.
“I think we played hard. (Lineman) Bradley Prestegord, for them, killed us all night long. Our guys played as hard as they could,” Christensen said. “We didn’t want to lose our first game on our home field. It was a fun game to watch, I’m sure, (and) it feels good to be on this side.”
The scoring started with Pearson finding Shepherd for a 12-yard touchdown pass, with the conversion failing. Buck ran in a touchdown from a yard out to put Toledo on top 7-6 at halftime.
Neither team scored in the third quarter, and Madill found Arceo-Hansen for a score and extra point to put the Indians ahead 14-6. Toledo took the ball back late, but an interception gave the Titans life towards the end of the fourth quarter.
“We’re always looking to drive down and score. We had the ball one last time, had a couple of big runs, and a 54-yard run on last drive,” Christensen said. “We were hoping to chew up some clock and punch it in. They had a couple nice defensive plays, and we threw it and they intercepted it.”
Pearson found Hamilton for a 5-yard pass as the clock hit zero to give PWV a chance, but the Titans’ came up just short.
PWV (2-2) hosts Ocosta in the Titans’ first Coastal Division game on Friday, while Toledo (2-2) hits the road to face Toutle Lake in the Indians’ first River Division game of the season.
South Bend Too Much for Mossyrock
MOSSYROCK — South Bend kept its record perfect here Friday night with a 44-0 SWW 2B League win over the host Vikings.
South Bend ran out to a 31-0 lead at halftime, and added touchdowns in both the third and fourth quarters to finish things out.
“There were moments where the kids played really well, but we’re playing two seniors and freshmen and sophomores,” Mossyrock coach Irv Stevenson said, “and they haven’t caught on yet.”
The third quarter, however, was a bright spot, and the Vikings kept possession for nearly 10 minutes. The offensive and defensive lines both played extremely well, he added.
Torre Villanueva led Mossyrock with 21 carries for 72 yards. Nick Fried added 59 rushing yards on 17 carries, and Deuce Kolb ran 10 times for 36 yards.
South Bend improved to 4-0 with the win. Mossyrock (0-4) hosts Wahkiakum on Friday in a SWW 2B River Division game.
Rainier Tops Morton-White Pass in Shootout
RAINIER — Rainier and Morton-White Pass combined for 81 points here on Friday, with the Mountaineers prevailing 41-40 in a SWW 2B League Mountain Division football game.
The Timberwolves had 264 yards of passing offense and 371 yards total, while Rainier accumulated 467 yards on the ground — with Ian Russell tallying 249 on 28 carries and Zach Lofgren adding 207 yards on 22 carries.
MWP’s Kaleb Rashoff had a solid game, completing 17 of 24 passes for 264 yards and two touchdowns. Dylan Pelletier caught three passes for 84 yards and a touchdown and Matt Poquette added six catches for 83 yards.
Gavyn Higdon led the MWP rushing attack with 11 carries for 64 yards.
MWP was up 34-33 with 1:25 to go, and drove the ball down the field with Higdon punching it into the end zone from 16 yards out to go ahead 40-33. Rainier got the ball back and scored with six seconds left on a Lofgren pass to Michael Green from 10 yards out, and Russell ran the ball in for the 2-point conversion and the win.
“We threw the ball well, we just couldn’t establish our running game, and that hurt us,” MWP coach Lee Metcalf said. “We couldn’t keep them off the field, couldn’t manage the clock. We were either scoring or on and off the field quick. That’s kind of what cost us.”
The Timberwolves started the scoring on a Pelletier 11-yard run, and Rainier answered with a 61-yard run by Russell.
Higdon ran the ball in from a yard out to regain the lead, but Lofgren answered with a score and extra point for the lead, followed by a Russell 1-yard running score. Rashoff found Pelletier for a 59-yard touchdown pass before halftime as Rainier led 19-18.
Higdon started the scoring in the second half with a 1-yard run to retake the lead. Rainier answered as Lofgren had a 6-yard run and a 2-point conversion run to take the lead right back.
Rashoff found Jesse Urban in the fourth quarter for a 36-yard touchdown pass and a Higdon conversion run. Russell scored his third touchdown of the game to answer, and MWP received the ball back with 1:25 left in the game.
MWP (1-3) hosts Chief Leschi on Friday in a SWW 2B Mountain Division game on homecoming night in Randle.
