2018 Premature Playoff Predictions, Week 4

#9 Valley Catholic Pounds Madras 47-0

Valliant QBs Aidan Welsh and Alex Tranquill throw 4 TD passes in the first half to lead Valley Catholic to the easy victory.


VC formationValley Catholic (3-0) jumped out to a quick 28-0 lead in the first quarter and never looked back in their final non-conference tune-up before heading into Cowapa league play.  Senior QBs Aidan Welsh (photo left) and Alex Tranquill threw touchowns to 4 different receivers and amassed 145 yards passing in the first half alone.  Welsh also ran for 28 yards and a score as the Valliants had no trouble moving the ball against a Madras team which was clearly outmatched from the start.


First-year head coach Nick Hegwood told his team after the game, "You've done everything I've asked of you so far.  You've met all 3 challenges.  But we're not sneaking up on anyone.  We've got everyone's attention now."  When asked about his team's performance early on in the game, he said he told his team before the game that they, "had to come out and execute early and put them away".  The Valliants did that with emphasis Friday night. 


The win moves Valley Catholic to 3-0 for just the 2nd time in school history.  The Valliants, who started up their varsity football program in 2007, also recorded a 3-0 start back in 2013 en route to a 6-4 campaign during their last year playing in 3A before moving up to 4A in 2014.  Asked about what has turned things around after going just 1-7 last year, Hegwood said, "The kids now think they can compete. They believe they are ready and it's that confidence they have now."


Next up for Valley Catholic is a trip to Astoria (2-1) in the Cowapa league opener for both schools.  Astoria is fresh off a 45-7 victory over Fort Vancouver (WA) and their only loss this season is a 10 point defeat to a very good North Bend team.  Madras (0-3) starts off Tri-Valley league play with a trip to another top-10 team in Molalla (3-0) which just defeated #1 Banks 34-28.

As a 1987 graduate of North Marion High School, I was once again reminded of the power and beauty of being raised in such a tight knit family oriented community such as ours. The type of community where we are ruled by the old saying, “It Takes A Village To Raise A Child!”


Cascade Holds Off Sisters


Cougars Edge Outlaws 12-10


Michael Biddington DSC08614Turner - 6th ranked Cascade edged visiting 9th ranked Sisters, using a defensive stand that bought some time, and finally recovering an onside kick with a half minute left to hold onto their first win of the season, and the first win of new coach Brandon Bennett's career Friday night.


The defending 4A State Champion Cougars burned off half the first quarter with the first possession of the game, a drive kept alive by a pass from punt formation on 4th and 3 from their own 39 yard line from Mitchell Bell, Cascade's quarterback who doubles as the punter, to Michael Biddington, left, a gunner on the punt coverage who is also the team's primary wide receiver.


The daring gamble caught Sisters, and everyone else, completely off guard, and produced a 29 yard gain down to the Outlaws' 32 yard line.


The drive initially appeared to come to an end with an interception in the Outlaws' end zone, but that was only possible because of pass interference, and the second chance to score resulted in an 8 yard touchdown run by Dakota Wakem that put the Cougars up 6-0. Lacking a kicking game, the 2 point conversion pass failed, and the score stayed the same. This would be an issue that became significant later in the game.

Heppner Avoids Upset In Opener


What a beautiful opening night for Football out at The St Paul Rodeo Grounds as the host Bucks out of the 2A Tri-River League, welcomed the 2015 Defending State 2A Champions, The Heppner Mustangs representing the 2A Columbia Basin Conference. This contest was everything you could ask for in an opener, as the outcome was not decided until under 10 seconds showed on the clock. Kind of what you would expect out of two programs with a ton of pride and history of success to back it up.

Cascade Comeback Claims 4A Title


Early Scappoose Lead Slips Away


Garrett Coffey DSC07677Hillsboro - Cascade overcame a 2 touchdown first quarter deficit, and a 1 score deficit at halftime, to pull away for a 37-28 win over Scappoose in the OSAA 4A State Championship Saturday at Hillsboro Stadium.


The game came down to a question of whether 'Poose could slug it out with the Cougars all afternoon. Initially, it appeared the answer would be yes, but over the long haul, it turned out to be no, and rather and increasingly resoundingly so as the second half went on.


"We just had to keep pounding," Cascade's workhorse running back Garrett Coffey said. Coffey, the Oregon West League Offesive Player of the Year who frequently posts gaudy rushing numbers, would average only a paltry 3.9 yards per carry, but wound up with the game's leading rusher, and with a jersey half torn off, but also with the blue trophy, and "a dream we have had since kindergarten come true."


It didn't look like any kind of dream would come true for Cascade except nightmares early though, as Scappoose forced a 3 and punt on the first possession of the game, and then marched for the first score of the game.


Central Builds Big Lead, Holds Off Hillsboro


Panthers Advance As Spartans Self Destruct


Monmouth - Mid-Willamette champion Central ran off 40 consecutive points, and then withstood a Hillsboro outburst of 21 points in less than 2 minutes, including back to back touchdown passes 10 seconds apart, to take a 46-28 win Friday night in the OSAA 5A Playoffs.


The Panthers are the only remaining team from the Mid-Willamette, after Silverton, South Albany, and Lebanon all fell, to Crater 45-0, which earned the Comets a showdown with Central next week, Summit 59-14, and Redmond 41-21, respectively.


Hillsboro actually took the early lead, taking the opening kickoff and marching to Sage Roundtree's 2 yard touchdown run 2 1/2 minutes into the game.


But Central answered with touchdowns on their first 2 possessions. The Panthers pulled out the back pages of the play book early, including a fake conversion miscue to set up a 2 point conversion, and a short snap to the up man on a fake punt on 4th and 14 to pick up a first down.


2015 Premature Playoff Predictions, Week 8

Hi. I'm Jeff. I do spreadsheets. Not for a living, or anything, but...well, I just do.


With 1 week left in the regular season, I'm back to make a stab at the following question:  So, where we playing in the playoffs?


Here's what I did.


I used the website www.calpreps.com to semi-educatedly guess who's going to win every game for the next 3 weeks, plug in all those results and see what my sheets spew out at the end. That having been said, there are probably some boo-boos I need to catch over the next 3 weeks, but I'll do my best.


And now, for your entertainment purposes, I present the tables. It's what calpreps is thinking. As I catch mistakes and stuff, this will be improved. If you want a copy of what I've got, email me at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
