The Papermakers became a well-oiled machine Friday, in their 48-14 victory over Kennedy Catholic at Doc Harris Stadium.
For the second year in a row, Camas (10-1) is one more win away from playing football in the Tacoma Dome for the first time in school history. Standing in the way is Meadowdale (11-0), who comes to town to play the Papermakers in the state quarterfinals Saturday at Doc Harris Stadium. Kickoff is at 5 p.m.
“We want to win this game and do something Camas has never done before, and that go to The Dome,” said senior running back Zack Marshall.
“We just want to be known as our own class,” he added. “Coming out of the tunnel before [Friday’s] game, we were all talking about fifth-grade football memories. These guys are my brothers. When we get together, it’s a family. We play with that tight bond, and it shows.”
Marshall carried the football 55 yards on four plays to score a touchdown 40 seconds into Friday’s game. After a 5- and a 3-yard run, Marshall snagged a shovel pass from senior quarterback Tony Gennaro, shook off a couple of tacklers and kept going for a 41-yard dash down the field. He then finished off the drive on a 6-yard sprint into the end zone.
