Camas becomes first football team to shut out Union
Typhoon sinks Titanic
Tuesday, October 16, 2012
The Union Titanic could not withstand the Camas typhoon.
The Papermakers earned a 22-0 victory against their cross town rivals Friday night, at McKenzie Stadium in Vancouver. Camas became the first football team to shut out Union since the school opened in 2007.
“All 11 guys played to the ball on every play. I couldn’t ask for more from my teammates,” said senior linebacker Colton Dowd. “This win was for all those past alums who lost to Union. It was unlike any other game.”
For starters, the Papermakers and Titans had to adjust to the first rainfall of the season. Bad snaps and fumbles humbled both teams in the first quarter, but Camas broke through the dam when Zach Eagle snagged a pass from Reilly Hennessey out in the open and plunged into the end zone.
“It was a pretty wet night. I think they expected us to run, but we caught them off guard,” Eagle said. “Reilly got it to me and the O-line held their blocks. I had some open space and wanted to see what I could do with it.”
