Camas High School goes live for Friday Night Blitz at 11:30 p.m., on KATU Channel 2.

The Portland Metro area got a taste of Camas by tuning into the KATU Channel 2 news broadcast of Friday Night Blitz.

After the Papermakers dismantled the Prairie Falcons 35-6 at Doc Harris Stadium, more than 200 students, football players, cheerleaders and band members waited anxiously in the gym for nearly two hours to be on television. At 11:30 p.m., Camas went live.

Carl Click read off the highlights: Zack Marshall’s 19-yard touchdown run, Zach Eagle’s 11 yard touchdown pass from Tony Gennaro, Nate Beasley’s two touchdowns and interceptions, and Gennaro’s 8-yard touchdown pass to John Norcross. Beasley’s first interception was selected as the Play of the Night.

Washougal also celebrated plenty Friday night, at Fishback Stadium. The Panthers kicked down the door into the 2A Greater St. Helen’s League by beating R.A. Long 42-14.

After Sam O’Hara scored two touchdowns in the first quarter, Karsten Short snagged a lawn dart from Colton Sullivan and ran it all the way to the endzone for 75 yards. Sullivan, Bobby Jacobs and Stephen Camden delivered touchdown runs of 16, 53 and 7 yards.

The 5-0 Panthers are the only undefeated team in Clark County. Next up is a long road trip Central Oregon to play Crook County. Be sure to get a seat on the router bus.

The 4-1 Papermakers return to Kiggins Bowl next Friday, to play Hudson’s Bay.

See you on the sidelines.
