Trailing at halftime for the first time this season, Camas rocked Skyview like a hurricane.
A 9-7 advantage by the Storm evaporated, and a 24-0 surge in the second half propelled Papermakers to a 31-9 victory at Doc Harris Stadium Friday.
Quarterback Jack Colletto ran for two touchdowns and connected with Cooper McNatt on a 24-yard touchdown pass in the third quarter. The Papermakers took about 10 minutes off the clock driving down the field in the fourth quarter. Michael Boyle finished the deal with a 35-yard field goal.
Skyview kicked off to Camas to begin the second half. McNatt snagged a 33-yard pass from Colletto, and then Colletto ran for a 13-yard touchdown to give the Papermakers a 14-9 lead.
The Camas defense put the squeeze on Skyview and forced a punt. Ryan Rushall returned the kick to the 35-yard line to get the Papermakers into scoring position again. Colletto ran for nine yards across the goal line for his third touchdown. He finished the game with 139 rushing and 110 passing yards.
Skyview quarterback Brody Barnum kept giving Camas the slip in the first half. Tanner Howington finally got a hold of Barnum’s leg and tripped him up for a third down. Dylan Ingram then bowled over the running back on fourth down to get the ball back for Camas.
After Colletto ran for two first downs, he fired a touchdown pass to McNatt to put the Papermakers up by 19 points.
Once again, Camas stopped Skyview on fourth down. The Papermakers ran down the clock in the final quarter, kicked a field goal and celebrated another big victory in front of their hometown.
Camas improves to 6-0 overall and 2-0 in league. The Papermakers play Heritage Thursday, at 4:30 p.m., at McKenzie Stadium.
