Santiam Takes 2A Tri-River Second Seed

DSC 0278 800x536

Santiam returned home this week after a huge win at Kennedy last Friday, looking to roll their record to 8-1/3-1 on the season but even more importantly, lock down the # 2 automatic playoff spot out of The Tri-River League.

 

Cascade Picks Off Win Over North Bend

Cougars Grab 5 Interceptions to Exact Revenge On Brown Bulldogs

Turner - Cascade literally picked off tonight's 35-7 win over North Bend in the OSAA Class 4A Play-In Play-Off round, grabbing 5 interceptions to repeatedly turn momentum in the game. The Cougars also avenged a recent run by the Brown Bulldogs, who had won the seasons' first meeting 24-8 back in week 3, as well as a 49-7 victory last season, and a 35-7 win in the first round of the playoffs in 2013.

 

And the win extended Cascade's stay in the 4A classification for at least another week, and put an end to North Bend's 4A run, as both teams will move up to 5A next year after the latest OSAA redistricting cycle is implemented.

 

Cascade quickly took the lead not 2 minutes into the game, when Marcus Reyes romped for the last 46 yards of their 66 yard opening drive to take a 7-0 lead, and added another score on Quinn Legner's 6 yard run with just over 2 minutes remaining in the first quarter, capping a 64 yard drive, to go up 14-0 headed to the second period. Legner's 40 yard run on a 4th down and 2 situation near mid-field keyed the drive.

 

North Bend finally got their offense in gear late in the first quarter, and drove to the Cascade 30 by the end of the period, but on the second play of the second quarter, the Cougar defense turned the threat away when Jake Whisman picked off Brown Bulldog freshman quarterback Coleman Compton inside the Cascade 5 yard line.

 

Legner got the interception of Compton that ended North Bend's next drive near midfield.

 

2017 Premature Playoff Predictions, Week 8

Cascade Offense DSC00859I'm back again trying to figure out who will be making the OSAA football playoffs, and where they might be playing in the first round. This week I have updated all classes with with last week's results (except for 4A which has now entered the play-in rounds).  I've also included an analysis of how the 4A brackets came to be so different from projected.

 

Game predictions are based on the Freeman rankings found on calpreps.com. Historically, that site is about 90% accurate when predicting winners and losers, and that's good enough for me. As a side note, I'm doing these projections based strictly on overall rankings on that site and not the individual game projections available there.

 

Qualification rules for all classifications can be found at the OSAA website.

 

I'm not going to bore you with the numbers my spreadsheet puts out. If you would like a copy of the spreadsheet (it's a .xlsx file), you can email me at jdrumm1 at Comcast.net.  I'll include instructions on how to do your own what-if scenarios.

North Marion Shuts Out Cascade

With Help From Cubs, Huskies Claim OWL Title

Turner - Cascade entered their final game in the Oregon West League before being moved up to the 5A classification next year when the OSAA redistricts teams with a game lead, and needing only to beat North Marion to claim an OWL title on their way out. But the Huskies, and especially their defense, would have none of it.

 

North Marion snagged 3 second half interceptions, 2 in their own end zone, forced and recovered a Cascade fumble at their own 8 yard line, dropped the Cougars for 2 safeties, and threw in a goal line stand at the end of the game to preserve the shutout on their way to a 10-0 win. It was the first time Cascade has been shut out in over 6 years.

 

And when Newport held on to upset Stayton 30-20 in Stayton, after building a 2 touchdown halftime lead, it meant North Marion had won the OWL, and earned the league's top seed in the OSAA playoffs.

 

Neither team was able to generate any appreciable offense for most of the first quarter, but North Marion, if they didn't flip the field, did alter the tilt of it with a 25 yard completion from Sergio Jimenez down the left sideline to Bradley Hansen at the Cascade 15 yard line on the last play of the first quarter.

There was another huge game in The Tri-River tonight, in the battle for second place and the right to an automatic bid in this year’s playoff bracket of 16. The Santiam Wolverines took their record of 6-1/1-1 in The Tri-River, out to face The Kennedy Trojans hoping to lock down the # 2 spot in the league.

ST Paul 2017 Tri-River Champions

The Buck certainly does not stop here, as St Paul finished their regular season unblemished and ranked as the top team in the state at the 2A Level. The Buckeroos went on the road out to Regis looking  to seal the deal tonight, and did just that with their 60-0 blowout  win over The 2016 State Champion Rams out in Stayton.

ST Paul Keeps Rolling 54-14

 

You would sure like to point to a true league rival when it comes to The 2A Tri-River but the truth is, it seems to be a rival game every Friday night in this tough 2A Conference.

 

In 2016, all five teams from this conference made the playoffs, and all but one of them, moved into the second round and claimed the state title when Regis brought home the hardware last year. Now here in 2017, here we are with 4/5 of them ranked in the top 10 of The OSAA Rankings before kick-off tonight, with three weeks left in the regular season.

 

St. Paul(6-0/2-0), came into tonight, as the top rated team in the state also boasting the number one ranking in The OSAA RPI, BCS, Colley, Power, and the number four ranking in Strength Of Schedule. How have they done it? Well besides an impressive unblemished win streak, The Bucks are the top scoring team in the state at 234 points, and they back that up with the number three ranked defense according to points against at only 44. The Bucks were looking to avenge the 14-6 loss from 2017 at the hands of The Trojans in front of their always supportive home crowd on Senior/Hall Of Fame Night.

 

Kennedy(1-5/1-1), is off to a rough start in 2017 especially considering the history of the program and their  lofty status year to year. That being said, they got that all important first win of the season last week against Central Linn which as far as The Trojans are concerned, set up this showdown at The Rodeo Grounds for the right to sole possession of the driver’s seat here in The Tri-River Conference.

 

The game opened with St Paul taking the kick, and Kennedy held tough forcing The Bucks into a turn over on downs on their opening drive. Kennedy then fed The Bucks a heavy dose of Sophomore RB Emorej Lynk until the converted QB, took a carry 10 yards on a second and 7 for the games initial score. Sophomore kicker Bruce Beyer converted the PAT with 6:50 left in the opening quarter.

 

The top ranked Bucks, did not panic and simply went back to work until they were able to tie it up with a Justin Herberger TD on a third and goal four minutes later. Junior Zach Brentano would finish with The PAT.
