The conference went 1-0 in the non-conference game, and is 10-12 so far.
I went 3-1, 22-3 so far. And those darned Eagles are responsible for all 3 misses.
Stayton @ North Marion. Husky homecoming was the game of the night in the league, and lived up to the billing. The difference was special teams; the Eagles made their PATs; the Huskies didn’t. Despite a bad first 2 weeks, Stayton is right where they need to be now, having sent Huskies to the dog house the last 2 weeks. NM will still be a factor in the league race.
Molalla @ LaSalle. The Indians’ war bonnets are now adorned with some nice, new Falcon feathers.
Gladstone @ Estacada. First win for Gladstone; in the Rangers they finally found an opponent they didn’t need a defense for. The Rangers found out it wasn’t the road that was the problem.
Cascade @ Pleasant Hill. Cougar QB Tommy Coleman’s 21-23, 2 TD passing night passing and the Cougar D that gave up 4 net yards rushing was too much for the Billies. The main difference in the Cougars this year is they are substantially healthy.
Again this week, the Sky-Em and Capital teams with a bye face each other, and this week its another renewal of an old Capital Conference matchup. Sisters Outlaws (4-0) @ Stayton Eagles (2-2, 1-0). The Eagles are improving with experience, but they are going to get an experience when the Outlaws come to town. Stayton, like most of 4A, has no match for Outlaw RB Cory McCaffrey. And his support cast is better too. Sisters is marching toward their date with Marist, and the trip to an old foe will just be another tune up/stat show.
North Marion Huskies (3-1, 0-1) @ Gladstone Gladiators (1-3, 1-0). Crucial game for both, as its one of those “could go either way” games teams have to win to have successful season. Gladstone has no defense, but do the Huskies have enough to slow the Gladiator offense down? If the game score is at or below the low 20s, Huskies win; if it climbs, it favors Happy Rock. I’m not sold on the Huskies’ ability to dictate game pace, which is the key to this one. Gladstone has put numbers up against better teams. This week, they won’t have to score every possession, but should score on enough of them to win a good one.
Molalla Indians (3-1, 1-0) @ Estacada Rangers (0-4, 0-1). Molalla’s fifth road game is the first episode in many years of a natural geographical rivalry between neighbors that will be a league game. The Indians are really on the warpath, and the Rangers are just not putting it together. But for a 2 pt. conversion in Astoria, the Indians would be undefeated. Estacada hasn’t been in position to win anything yet. Mo’s month of excursions ends with another good night for the raiding party.
LaSalle Falcons (1-3, 0-1) @ Cascade Cougars (3-1, 0-0). Cougar offense is balanced and producing, Falcon defense has been in bend, then break mode. Falcon offense has been outpaced, Cougar defense is swarming. The 3 win streak the Cougars have put together is their best this century. This week, the Cougars sew up their best season so far this century.
