On the sidelines: A tale of two different home games

The Camas High School football players, coaches and fans love their new home at the renovated Doc Harris Stadium. Meanwhile, Washougal cannot wait to get back on the road.

Addison Owen returned a punt, made a catch in the end zone and took an interception all the way back for three touchdowns. Zack Marshall and Logan Grindy also had three touchdowns to help the Papermakers beat Hudson’s Bay 66-14.

Unhappy Homecoming

The Panthers played an inspiring first half over in Washougal Friday, but the second half was a nightmare as Crook County, Ore., charged to a 33-16 victory.

Nathan Adams caught a 14-yard touchdown pass from Colton Sullivan, but Washougal was called for holding. On the next snap, Sullivan handed off to Caleb Howard. Adams broke for the end zone again, and Howard hit him on the fly for a 28-yard touchdown pass to tie the game up at 7-7.

The Cowboys scored another touchdown, and were able to get the ball back again. After the Panthers made their first strong defensive stand, they put together a 75-yard push for the end zone. Sullivan finished it off with a 6-yard TD run, but the Cowboys blocked the extra-point kick.

Washougal made one more stand on defense, and then drove down the field again. Sullivan kicked a 36-yard field goal with about five second to go in the half. The Panthers had a 16-14 lead at halftime, but Crook County outscored them 19-0 in the second half.
