Cascade Jumps Stayton Early For 36-0 Win

29 Point 1st Quarter Turns Rivalry Into Rout


Turner – Even though Cascade has dominated the “Shaff Road Showdown” against  Stayton for much of the series’ history, though the Eagles did assert them selves several times in recent years, its still usually been a hotly contested affair. Not this time.


Cascade scored on their first possession on a 38 yard pass from Josh Delamarter to Cameron Molan, and after the Cougar defense forces Stayton’s second drive to stall out as the first one did, it only took Jake Dozler 1 play to find a seam to the sideline, and a 57 yard touchdown run.


Cascade threw in a half-back pass from Molan to Cody Nunley for a 2 point conversion, and a 15-0 lead barely 7 minutes into the game, and then converted short fields produced by Stayton turnovers on consecutive possessions to blow the game open to a 29-0 lead before the end of the first quarter.


Premature Playoff Predictions, Week 2

A few disclaimers before I get going.

  1. All projections are based on the Freeman ratings found at www.calpreps.com. I don't make any predictions of my own.
  2. These ratings are based on my own work.  They are subject to typos. I need to crack the whip a little more on my staff, I guess.
  3. I will answer “What If” questions up to a point. That point is usually the result of one, maybe two games going against what is projected.
  4. These are NOT the official current rankings as posted on www.osaa.org.
  5. Yes, I included projected ratings for out of state teams.
  6. No, I didn't include games of Nov 1 as a factor in the ratings this time.
  7. Sometimes calpreps.com gets things wrong. That's dealt with below.


So, with that out of the way, I present:

North Marion Holds On For 1 Point Win Over LaSalle

Pink-Out A Nail-Biting Green-Out


Aurora - Husky Stadium was full of tradition tonight, as both teams took the opportunity to promote their Breast Cancer Awareness in the 5th Annual "Pink Out" event that was started by former North Marion WR/DB Kelly Christenson, back in the Fall of 2009. The contest also took place on the eve before North Marion enshrines it's 3rd Annual Athletic Hall Of Fame Class which will be held in the commons Saturday night with the event starting at 6:00 pm. Tickets are available at the door for 20.00 per adult, and 10.00 per student with proceeds going to the rebuild of The North Marion Trophy Case in the near future. This years inductees include Jim Bowman, Roger Moore, Kelsie Kahle, Steve Schrenk, and observation of the 1990 NM Softball team, which finished 2nd in the state in 1990.

Lasalle(1-4), came into the contest tonight looking to leave behind the 3 game losing streak that had seen them out scored 123-22 in that span of consecutive losses to Philomath, Banks, and Gladstone, hoping to even their Tri-Valley Conference record at 1-1 after The Gladiator loss to open league play last Friday. The Huskies(3-2), were looking for more after opening league last week at Madras with a 34-12 victory.


Lasalle opened the game by kicking the ball deep to Senior WR/DB Kyle Williamson who has simply been on a tear to this point in the season on both sides of the ball and special teams, but Kyle is not able to work his magic against a smothering cover team that planted him at his own 9 yard line to open the night. After a couple carries of no gain and an incomplete pass, NM is forced to Punt the ball dead deep in their own territory. After two consecutive runs by The Falcons Junior Nash Lisac gaining a total of 6 yards, Junior QB Alex Sherrill drops back to let one go over the middle and looking for a receiver over the middle, The Huskies Brody Gragg stepped in front of the Falcon Wideout and picked it off heading the other way near the Huskies 15 yard line.

The Huskies Junior Robert Gendhar, got the Dogs rolling on first down with a carry of 8 yards and on short yardage, is handed the ball again as NM had their initial first down of the night up to their own 30 yard line. Junior Emery Patterson got into the mix with a couple carries totaling 5 yards setting up a 3rd and 5. Senior QB Ben "The Snake" Crumley, showing a strong accurate arm as he has all season, took a quick three step drop and planted one on the numbers of his All-Everything WR Williamson and before they could wrangle him to the ground, NM was setting up for a 1st down at the 50 yard line. Gendhar then took the hand off and punched himself up to The Falcon 34 yard line.

Central Outdistances Cascade 32-21

Big Plays Push Panthers Past Cougars


Ben Finnegan DSC00294Monmouth – Central got 5 touchdown passes by Ben Finnegan, left, and set some of them up with some of the other big plays they made, to overcome a dogged Cascade squad and pull away for a 32-21 Oregon West League win Friday night.


The first one came on the opening kickoff, a line drive that caromed off Cascade’s Cody Nunley and was recovered by Central’s Trevor Whitaker at the Cougar 35 yard line. Finnegan immediately connected with Aaron Hobgood, who hauled in the ball after it was deflected up in the air, and hauled it the rest of the way for the touchdown that put the Panthers up 7-0 only 11 seconds into the game.


“I wish I could take credit for that,” Central coach Shane Hedrick said, “but that (kickoff) was not a planned play. He (Panthers kicker Roger Torres) just hit it high, and credit to Trevor for being alert. How often do you see something like that?”


Cascade appeared to have answered, marching to the Central 4 yard line, but the Panther defense dug in, and the drive stalled out.


The Panthers put together the first but not the last impressive length of the field drive in response, and Finnegan capped the 18 play march that took over 6 minutes, and was aided by a pair of encroachment penalties on the Cougars, with a 6 yard scoring pass to Colby Jackson, and then after a Cascade 3 and punt, capped a 3 play, 63 yard drive with a 47 yard strike to Grant Lindley 5.7 seconds before the end of the first quarter.


But rather than fold after falling behind by 3 scores, especially after playing poorly initially, Cascade calmly started to fight their way back into the game.


Premature Playoff Predictions, Week 1

A few disclaimers before I get going.

  1. All projections are based on the Freeman ratings found at www.calpreps.com. I don't make any predictions of my own.
  2. These ratings are based on my own work.  They are subject to typos. I need to crack the whip a little more on my staff, I guess.

  5. Yes, I included projected ratings for out of state teams.
  6. No, I didn't include games of Nov 1 as a factor in the ratings this time.
  7. No 1A, 2A or 3A projections yet.  I need one more week to a) get caught up, b) figure out what some of the 2A teams are doing (read that as Glendale and Bonanza), and c) try to figure out what half the 1A schedules actually are.


So, with that out of the way, I present:

DeSaulnier Delivers Win For Warriors

45 Yard Field Goal Into Wind Whips #3 Panthers 10-7


Ben DeSaulnier DSC09941Monmouth – #1 ranked Philomath's Ben DeSaulnier stated his case for being the All-State kicker, with a 45 yard field goal into the teeth of a sustained 30 mph wind. It proved to be the game winner when Central's Colby Jackson came up with a 91 yard touchdown pass, but the Panthers then couldn't come up with points on a last minute drive.


"Ben made a 52 yarder in practice yesterday," Philomath head coach Troy Muir said. "He's the real deal."


The horizontal rain that the high winds were driving dominated most of the game, with the only first half score coming on a 27 yard 4th down run by Philomath's Austin Brown just over a minute before halftime. The score came on a short field, after DeSaulnier had picked off Ben Finnegan's pass, which hung up in the wind, setting the Warriors up at the Panther 45 yard line.


Neither team had been able to sustain a drive, with any pass into the wind hanging, and any with the tailwind sailing overthrown.


Tigers Maul Huskies

JC Dominates NM

Aurora - The Junction City Tigers muscled their way into Husky Stadium Friday night behind the relentless front lines of their offense and defense and cruised to the 34-7 victory over North Marion. The Huskies could not answer the constant pressure on both sides of the ball and where Junction City established themselves on the ground out of a version of the Wing-T, NM could not match the out put of The Tigers and the final score is just another indication of that.


Lowell Thumps St Paul 76-40

Red Devils move to 2-0 and make their case for being one of 1A's top teams for 2013.


Cardwell runLowell's experienced front line opened up holes throughout St Paul's defense as the Red Devils amassed over 400 yards and 8 touchdowns on the ground against one of the best teams in 1A over the past several years on a beautiful night at the St Paul Rodeo Fairgrounds.  Tanner Harvey led the way with 136 yards and 2 TDs, including a 60 yard burst up the middle while QB Josh Cardwell (#2 left) ran for 104 and 3 TDs to go with 136 yards and 3 TDs in the air.  St Paul's Tyler Smith was a bright spot for the Buckaroos as he ran for 146 yards and 1 TD and made several runs over 20 yards on the night.


St Paul battled injuries and turnovers on the night.  They lost starting QB Cody Southerland in the first quarter to what appeared to be concussion-like symptoms after taking a nasty hit while returning a kickoff.  RB Mario Dela Rosa also appeared to injure his hand just before halftime.  St Paul struggled to hold onto the football all night, failing to recover 3 onside kicks in addition to the 6 fumbles and 2 interceptions for the game.  That's 11 missed chances which Lowell capitalized on early and often, running out to a 36-12 lead after the first quarter and 44-12 at halftime.


Lowell (2-0) travels to McKenzie next week as they start play in Special District 5.  St Paul (1-2) takes on Imbler over in Dufur as they continue a very difficult preseason schedule.

Huskies Edge Tigers

North Marion Holds Off Y-C 28-20


The Huskies of North Marion ventured out on the road tonight for the first time this season, looking to get another victory after last weeks win over Tillamook. Standing in their way looking for their first victory of the season, was the home town Yamhill-Carlton Tigers after dropping games to both Philomath and Junction City to open the 2013 campaign. The Huskies Andy Pine tried to get the momentum shift once again early this week by pooching the kick off but YC knew it was coming and called for the fair catch at their own 42 yard line with The Huskies all over them to begin their first drive of the night. The Tigers opened up with two carries by a very strong Senior RB Jacob Wood before Junior QB Zach Rhodes threw an incompletion to force the early punt to NM's Kyle Williamson, who made a nice little return out to the 50 yard line to open up the offense for North Marion.


North Marion Kicks Tillamook Aside

Unconventional Kicking Tactics Trouble 'Tilly


It didn't take long for North Marion Senior Kicker Andy Pine, to make the statement that Kickers are people too as his Right foot made a difference in this game but not in the conventional way. The Tillamook Cheese Makers made the trip out to North Marion in this Tri-Valley/Cowapa League match-up, with both teams looking for their first win of the season after opening week losses. The Huskies won the toss and chose to kick to Tillamook as Pine Tee'd the ball up to get things rolling. Pine set the tone by chipping a shot up the sideline in air just deep enough for recovery and like a thief in the night, NM Senior standout Wide Receiver Kyle Williamson jumped up in the air all alone for the recovery at the 40 yard line.


The Senior QB of The Huskies Ben Crumley(Son of former coach Bill), went to work moving the Huskies down the field behind the running of Juniors Shane Mckillip, and Tyler Saucedo before deciding to open up his arm and test the defense. On Crumleys first pass, he hit McKillip for 16 yards and decided to go for it all on the next play, throwing a beautiful deep corner fade that went through the hands of Williamson as he jumped up into position. Williamson has some of the very best hands in the state so he was shocked as anyone at the missed scoring opportunity. Saucedo and McKillip carried for a combined two yards before Crumley went to the air across the middle only to find a Tillamook defender waiting for the pick near the goal line where he was brought down at the 2 yard line. The Huskies bottled up Tillamook on two straight plays before Tillamook Senior QB Matt Strang rolled out right but missed his receiver with pressure on his backside from many Huskies. Forced to punt, The Huskies got a small piece and rolled dead at the Tillamook 31 yard line to open the second drive of the night for NM.
