North Picks Off 31-21 Les Schwab Bowl Victory

The North sealed a 31-21 victory over the South in a turnover filled 67th Les Schwab Bowl, on a 35 yard pick-6 by Aloha's Maurice McSwain, below, with 2 1/2 minutes to go Saturday afternoon at Hillsboro Stadium.

Fittingly, on a day when both defenses' turned in their team's biggest play of the day, both in terms of yards and impact on the game, on 2 of the 12 turnovers that highlighted the action, the game would be decided on a fourth down pass, forced when an apparent catch was ruled incomplete in error the play before.

Garcia Grabs Opportunity To Win 61st Shrine Game For West

West Evens Series With 33-23 Win

 

Forrest Garcia Punt Return DSC08626BakerCity – The West has found a formula for winning East-West Shrine games; get to the 4th quarter, and then get the Dayton kid in position to pull out the come-back victory.

 

It worked last year when A.J. Hedgecock hit the game winning field goal, and though he had to do a bit more, come the last half of the 4th quarter of this year’s game, Forrest Garcia delivered as well.

 

A 49 yard punt return, left, sparked the drive Garcia capped with an 8 yard run for the go-ahead touchdown, and another 31 yard touchdown sprint put the the West up 33-23 less than a minute later, as the West rallied for their 4th consecutive win in the annual showcase of graduating talent from the state’s schools from the 4A, 3A, 2A, & 1A classifications.

 

“I was definitely waiting for my chance, and took it when I could,” Garcia said. “It worked out, thank God.”

 

It also made for a better memory than the rare occurrence of having fumbled twice on the same play that befell Garcia earlier, and sparked an East rally that eventually led to a 16 point run that erased the 19 points in a row the West had run up in the 1st quarter.

66th Les Schwab Bowl Saturday

Les Schwab Bowl LogoSaturday evening at 6 PM the 66th Les Schwab Bowl presented this year by Express Employment Professionals kicks off at Hillsboro Stadium, and the South will be looking to repeat last year's 21-0 win, and even the all time series at 31 wins apiece, with 4 ties, including the early days when it was the Metro-State All Star Game. Doors open at 3 PM for the Rick's Custom Fencing & Decking's FAN FEST.

 

The game culminates a weeklong series of events for the players and coaches. Teams practiced twice a day at Pacific University during the day, with a variety of activities following in the evening. This year teams attended a Hillsboro Hops baseball game on Tuesday, battle in the annual "North vs. South Wing Eating Contest" at Buffalo Wild Wings Wednesday night, and will participate in the LES SCHWAB BOWLing competition at Big Al's in Beaverton on Thursday.

 

Additionally, both the North and South teams will visit the Providence Hospital Center for Medically Fragile Children cleaning equipment and interacting with patients. The Center for Medically Fragile Children is the only pediatric skilled nursing facility in the Pacific Northwest, providing 24-hour long-term, short-term, respite and end-of-life care to medically fragile children and young people ranging in age from infancy to 21 years.

 

The Les Schwab Bowl players will also serve as coaches to youth football players at Anthony Newman's Sports Camp on Saturday prior to the game.

North Claims Les Schwab Bowl With Strong 4th Quarter

South Held At Bay At End

 

Hillsboro - The North came from behind in the relatively action packed 4th quarter, and then thwarted multiple South threats down the stretch to claim the 66th Annual Les Schwab Bowl 21-14 Saturday night at Hillsboro Stadium.

 

This year's edition of the showdown of graduating Oregon high school All-Stars from the state's big school, known variably since 1948 as the City-State, Metro-State, North-South Shrine All-Star Game, and in recent years, the Les Schwab Bowl, presented by Express Employment Professionals this season, culminated a week of activities for the participants.

 

Tanner Shipley DSC08353

 

The North used a 42 yard return of the game's opening kickoff and a 13 yard reception by Wilsonville's Tanner Shipley to set up a 32 yard field goal by Central Catholic's Mitchell Seeley less than 4 1/2 minutes into the game.

 

It was only 3 points, but it was already more points than were scored in last year's first half, and more than was scored all game by the North in last year's 21-0 South victory. It was also the only points scored until midway in the second quarter in what shaped up initially as another defensive battle.

West Sweats Out 31-28 Shrine Game Win

Hedgecock Hits 42 Yard FG As Time Expires

 

AJ Hedgecock FG DSC03613Baker City – A.J. Hedgecock has been in the middle of a lot of exciting finishes in his storied high school career, but according to the Dayton graduate, none that were any more fun than the 42 yard field goal he hit, left, as time expired to win the 60th. Oregon East-West Shrine All-Star game. And certainly none that were any hotter, as he waited out a pair of East time outs in the 90 degree eastern Oregon sun.

 

With time winding down in the deadlocked sweat festival, Hedgecock, who is headed for Oregon St., rambled around left end down to the East 35 yard line as the clock wound down under a minute to go. Hedgecock's Dayton teammate Hayden Craig hauled in a pass from Gaston's David Carr to reach the 29, and the West took their first time out with 26.2 seconds left. Siuslaw's Sonny Tupua was only able to find 1 yard against the East defense, forcing another West time out, this time with 18.6 seconds left.

 

At that point, Santiam Christiam coach Dave Lange, who handled special teams for the West in Shrine Game preparations, sold head West coach Tim Dodson on the idea that Hedgecock could reach the field goal, and so the call was to have Craig get the ball positioned for the game winning kick.

 

Oregon football fans will recall a similar situation last December, when Lange sent his kicker Jeff Hendrix onto the Hillsboro Stadium field to hit the 47 yard field goal that won the 2011 OSAA 3A State Championship game 31-28 as time ran out, and it was Hedgecock who had to watch.

 

"I told Coach Lange I wanted to hit a 48 yard field goal here," Hedgecock said. "It's not quite even 47 yards, like in Santiam Christian game, but I'll take it. There's been no play that's been more fun than this."

South Pulls Away Late In Defensive Les Schwab Bowl

Walcott Grabs 2 TDs While Defense Smothers North

 

Taylor Walcott TD DSC03462Hillsboro - It took most of the game for the South offense to get in gear Saturday night in the 65th Les Schwab Bowl at Hillsboro Stadium in what wasn't an elegant game by any standard. But when what many consider "ugly ball" breaks out, its good to have a shut-down defense and a solid kicking game, and that's what the South unleashed on the North.

 

Both Dillon Miller and Cody Hollister found Marist's Taylor Walcott, left, for fourth quarter touchdown tosses of 66 yards first on a hitch route, and then an 18 yard fade route, left, that put the game away.

 

But it was the South's smothering defense that dominated the game. The North was without 6A Player of the Year Steven Long, as the MVP RB of 2 state title games was forced to watch the game on crutches, after suffering a right ankle injury in preparation for the game. But its unlikely the Portland St. bound Long could have changed the outcome.

 

Conventional wisdom is that All-Star games are offensive showcases, with little defense played. No one told this year's South team that though. The South limited the North to 89 total yards in 70 plays, including a -28 on the ground, due in large part to 9 sacks. In all, 11 South defenders had a hand in 20 tackles for a loss, on their way to the first shutout in the Les Schwab Bowl in 24 years, since a 35-0 South win in 1988. The 21-0 win was only the 7th shutout in the history of the series, and just the 4th since 1954. The win pulled the South within 31-30-4 in the series.
