Camas football struggles to score against Sumner

The Camas High Papermakers’ football offense, which averaged nearly 50 points a game leading up to a recent match-up against Sumner High, failed to score a single point in the 14-7 loss, Oct. 4.

The only points the Papermakers scored came from the Camas defense, on a 75-yard pick six by Shane Jamison.

The offense did put together a nice drive near the end of the game under the direction of quarterback Andrew Boyle and receiver Luc Sturbelle.

Camas had several chances to tie the game with pass attempts into the end zone as the clock ticked down, but time ran out on the Papermakers, who are now 3-3 on the season.

The Papermakers face Battle Ground at 7 p.m., Thursday, Oct. 11, at home, at Camas High’s Doc Harris Stadium.

Panthers football edged out by Chieftains

The young Washougal Panthers football team looked sharp in the first half of an Oct. 5 game against the Columbia River Chieftains, when Preston Thorton hit two field goals and quarterback Dalton Payne connected with receiver Jakob Davis for a 35-yard touchdown, putting Washougal up 13-7 at halftime.

Last season, Washougal beat Columbia River 17-0, a stinging loss that likely fueled the Chieftains defense in the second half. Both teams played tough defense and when it appeared Washougal would score a field goal in the fourth quarter, the attempt was blocked and Columbia River ran it back to put them in position to score.

The Chieftains’ touchdown came with just 5:45 left in the game, and Washougal responded by effectively driving down the field. But Payne’s pass was intercepted and Columbia River secured the victory 14-13.

The Panthers are now 3-3 on the season. Washougal will play a home conference game against Mark Morris High, at 7 p.m., Friday, Oct. 12.
