Camas gets back in the ‘red’ zone

Wearing red for the first time in a decade, the Camas High School football team didn’t waste any time against A.C. Davis Friday at Doc Harris Stadium.

The Papermakers put up 28 points in the first quarter at a furious pace and sent the Pirates back to Yakima after a 52-19 shipwreck.

Ja’Michael Shelton snagged a 32-yard touchdown pass from Camas quarterback Kyle Allen to start the tidal wave. Ryan Rushall intercepted a pass for the Papermakers on defense, Luc Sturbelle made a beautiful catch down on the other side of the field, and then Randy Yaacoub capped off the drive with a 24-yard touchdown run.

After Kolby Broadbent came up with another interception for Camas, Will Schultz broke free for a 42-yard touchdown run. The Papermakers scored one more touchdown in the first quarter on a 5-yard dash and smash into the end zone by Semisi Schultz.

Camas kept pedaling in the second quarter. Yaacoub galloped nine yards into the end zone for his second touchdown. Andrew Boyle kicked a 17-yard field goal. After Davis scored a touchdown, Trevor Bentley took the kick off back to the house for seven more Papermaker points. Camas led 45-7 at halftime.

Rushall turned a pass from Allen into a 17-yard touchdown to give the Papermakers a 52-7 advantage in the third quarter. The Pirates scored two touchdowns in the fourth quarter.

The Friday, Sept. 22 game between Camas and Couer d’Alene, Idaho, will be one to watch. Kickoff is at 7 p.m., at Doc Harris Stadium.
