Rocked by the Skyview Storm in the second half, Addison Owen and the Camas Papermakers rode a tidal wave of cheers to a 28-12 victory Friday at Doc Harris Stadium.
Camas quarterback Logan Grindy and his quintuplet of receivers were electric in the first half. Touchdown catches by Owen, Brent Hill and Ikaika Gunderson gave the Papermakers a 21-3 advantage.
Skyview cut the deficit in half in the third quarter, and was a touchdown away from getting within two points. That’s when Owen intercepted a pass in open field, and sent the Camas fans home happy.
Owen turned on the jets down the sidelines, before running into some heavy traffic during those last 10 yards. The Papermakers delivered the blocks, and Owen kept going. Caught up in the moment on the sideline, assistant coach Joe Hallead shouted “house … house!”
Owen took it all the way to the end zone, and Camas never looked back.
Paint it orange and black
Fire hydrants in Washougal were painted orange and black Friday, just in time for the Panthers to sink their teeth into a 24-8 road victory over Clatskanie.
Washougal scored on its first two drives of the game to take a 10-0 lead at halftime. Colton Sullivan kicked a 41-yard field goal and Sam O’Hara added an 11-yard touchdown run.
Clatskanie had a long sustaining drive for a touchdown and a 2-point conversion in the third quarter. The Panthers finished strong with touchdown runs by O’Hara and Ryan Erdwins.
