Written by Bryan Levesque on September 11, 2010
#3 Camas (2-0) jumped out to a quick 20-0 lead then held on to beat Mountain View (1-1) 27-14 at McKenzie Stadium.
Camas DB Addison Owen returned 2 Mountain View punts deep into Thunder territory early in the game to set up 2 Camas touch downs. Owen ran the first Thunder punt of the game to the Mountain View 22, where 3 plays later QB Logan Grindy hit TE Ikaika Gunderson for a 5 yard TD and a quick 7-0 lead. Camas scored on their next possession when RB Zach Marshall capped a 8 play 52 yard drive with a 1 yard TD run. Mountain View punted on their next possession when Owen again shined, running the punt back to the Thunder 30. Marshall appeared to score on a run play on the very next play, however a holding call brought the ball back to the 35. On the next snap Camas ran the exact same play and Marsahll again found his way down the left sidelines for a TD and a 20-0 Camas lead early in the 2nd quarter.
The Papermakers appeared to let up after that, while Mountain View keep fighting trying to avoid the blow out.
Thunder RB P.J. Jones scored on a pass from QB Ryan Hansen from 22 yards out later in the quarter to make the score 20-7 at halftime.
A 14 play 49 yard Mountain View drive to open the second half was snuffed out by DB Jeremy Faulkner when he picked off a Hansen pass at the Camas 25. 5 plays later (all Marshall runs) Camas was back in the end zone on Marshall’s 3rd rushing TD of the night and led 27-7.
Zach Marshall now has 196 rushing yards and 6 TD’s on the season.
With the win Camas improves to 2-0 and 1-0 in league play and will open up their new Doc Harris Stadium Friday vs Columbia River (1-1 0-1) at 7:00 pm. Mountain View falls to 1-1 and 0-1 in league play with the loss. The Thunder will travel to Prairie (1-1) next Friday for a 7:00 pm game.
