Unforgettable football game in Washougal
Panthers grab a 74-7 victory over Fort Vancouver
Tuesday, September 18, 2012
As one of the last high school football teams in Clark County to have a home game, the Washougal Panthers gave a performance their fans will never forget.
The Panthers decimated the Fort Vancouver Trappers 74-7 Friday, at Fishback Stadium. A long interception return by Randy Gubser was the first crack in Fort's foundation.
"To do that on the second play of the game puts you in a whole different mindset," Gubser said. "The energy from the sidelines was just crazy. It was a great way to start the game."
Matt Randall slid across the goal line and snagged a 9-yard touchdown pass from Guy LaRue. Randall also delivered an 11-yard fumble recovery for a touchdown, but saved his best play for last. As the Trappers drove into scoring position to start the third quarter, the Washougal senior intercepted a pass in their end zone and made a 102-yard dash into the Panther end zone for his third touchdown of the game.
