Camas evaporates Lakes
Papermakers kick off league against Skyview Friday, at Kiggins Bowl
Tuesday, October 1, 2013
The Papermaker football typhoon swallowed Lakes 49-0 Friday, at Doc Harris Stadium.
The Lancers defeated the Camas football team in overtime during the 2010 state quarterfinals at the same location. This town had not forgotten about that day, and neither did the seniors in the Papermaker pads. They had a job to do.
“I remember looking into the eyes of those seniors and not wanting to feel how they felt,” said quarterback Reilly Hennessey. “Lakes is the only team we had lost to at the new Doc Harris Stadium. Without a doubt, we wanted to win this game for those guys who put Camas on the map and for our town.”
Hennessey had a night to remember. He threw for 279 yards and completed three touchdown passes to Michael DiGenova, James Price and Zach Eagle. Hennessey also ran in a touchdown for good measure.
“They make my life so easy,” he said of his receivers. “I’m not half of what I accomplish without them and the O-line. It takes 11 guys on the field to do what we accomplish.”
