Written by Bryan Levesque on October 3, 2009

Skyview outscored Mountain View 21-6 in the second half as the Storm won on the road 21-20 Friday night.

Mountain View had a 14-0 lead at the half following a 77 yard interception return by DL Kyler Spears, and a 27 yard strike from QB Lucas Swanson to WR Andrew White.

In the second half the Storm started to put it together after a 9 point 3rd quarter cut the Thunder lead to 5, Skyview found a combination that worked twice.

    I attended the Skyview vs Mountain View game tonight believing the hype that Skyview was going to dominate the Thunder. MAN was I wrong! The Thunder have a solid team and in my opinion should have won the game. I was in disbelief that once again GSHL officials could be so bad. Skyview’s offensive line was constantly holding especially on Thunder’s # 99. That kid was beating double teams and the only way the Storm could stop him was by pulling him down. I think they called holding once or twice but pretty much allowed it for most of the game. Just horrible in my opinion. I will say this about Mountain View, they’re no push overs….those guys were physical and have some [darn] good athletes. Best of luck Thunder…don’t let the sub par officiating get you down…you played like champs tonight.

    Great job tonight Mountain View! Keep your heads up!!

  3. Storm Fan on October 3rd, 2009 5:05 pm

    For all but the 1st quarter Skyview controlled the game. The Thunder played a good game no doubt about it but the Storm started off very slow then picked up steam as the game went on… Great game for sure and great job by both teams

  4. HHS Alumni on October 3rd, 2009 7:30 pm

    Poor officiating is evident throughout the league and in this video. Last TD where the Skyview WR puts BOTH hands on the defender to create space and catch the ball for a TD and NO call? Terrible!!!

  5. Just Sayin' on October 3rd, 2009 7:48 pm

    That’s crap, Storm Fan…how can you ‘control’ the whole game when you were down 14-0 @ halftime? Thunder let this one get away from them, just like Glencoe. It’s really too bad that MV didn’t get the ‘w’ on this one, they were the better team that night – no question!

  6. Storm Fan on October 3rd, 2009 8:53 pm

    Just Sayin you might want to look at the stats above… Skyview was better in every stat and came away with the Win. After the first quarter Mt. View only scored 6 points… just sayin Skyview was the better team

  7. Football Player on October 3rd, 2009 10:42 pm

    I agree the officiating in this area arn’t the best in the state. I remember last year when Union was facing River last year and they had a 4th and 68 and the refs continued to call unsportsmanlike penalties on the titans. Some how we really need to try and get some fair officials in this area.

  8. skyviews OLG on October 4th, 2009 1:51 am

    Holding, r u kidding me, watch the film the hands are inside the frame, not holding. 99 is not all he is made out to be, he had a few good plays but other than that everytime he lined up against me I shut him out. Now he was the only good d-lineman on the team, with an alright pass rush the rest of them would take three hard steps and then give up, we were able to pass and run all over then because of this. And the td by 56 was the luckiest thing I have ever seen, I start on the d-line as well and I was the one who laid the hit that hit the ball out, the fact that he picked it up and scored is the greatest thing he will do In a game.

  9. Matt O'Dore on October 4th, 2009 4:40 am

    I was at this game and it was clear that the Thunder really are the better team. Never had I seen such bad officiating. Poor spotting, not calling the holding that was going on every play, and a clear pass interference. Thunder keep your head after this close loss and finish out the rest of the season with all W’s. Mathieson is one of the best coaches in SW Washington if not the whole state and you guys will only get better. Once TK comes back we’ll have an even better running game (no offence PJ, you still a dawg)

  10. Thunder Football Fanatic on October 4th, 2009 2:06 pm

    MR. Skyviews, please tell me what your jersey # is…as far as holding on # 99 you must need an eye exam. Please watch the film at 5:28 secs and tell what the heck that was?? Hands inside the frame….yeah right pal. If that’s not holding then I don’t know what is! That’s only one example. Man you guys are way overrated and to say that # 99 is average is funny. His true position is defensive end and I would bet my life savings he would beat you or any of your o-line buddies off the edge. I have him in a couple classes at school and he has many D-1 colleges interested in him and will most likely play PAC 10 ball. Where are you going if your so good? And why do act like you guys had the game in the bag from the start? Your secondary was getting roasted for most of the game and like everyone before my entry has commented the officials gave you life one too many times….have you no respect for a team that owned you for most of the game?

  11. BIg Boy on October 4th, 2009 2:08 pm

    Skyview got very lucky!

  12. Storm Fan on October 4th, 2009 7:13 pm

    How can you say Skyview got owned or lucky when they won every stat??? If it was not for the lucky play in the first quarter the game would not have been close… Face it guys you guys got beat and that is the facts……

  13. skyview olb on October 4th, 2009 7:21 pm

    Every one stop crying about the holding. mt view doesnt no how to finish a game skyview wanted it more and came out with the win thats all that matters, so shut up about the stupid holding. holding happens throughout the whole game. skyviews linebackers were getting held throughout the game and you dont see us crying. you talk about how mt view was hard hitters hahahahahahahahaha

  14. MVHS athlete on October 4th, 2009 7:39 pm

    Everybody gets lucky every once and a while. there is a quote that specifically says “it seems to be the harder i work the luckier i get”. And I will tell you right now we are the hardest working team in the whole league hands down. Our coach is the most diligent and best preparer i have seen in my life. And not only was there holding throughout the whole game…but both TD’s in the 4th quarter the reciever pushed off to get seperation. Also on the 4th and 2 the ref clearly gave Dodge and extra yard. There was no way that he got that first down. We were definetly the more prepared team and we should of won that game.

  15. Observer on October 4th, 2009 8:45 pm

    Stop complaining about the refs! Skyview gets screwed every game for stupid calls. Mt. View came prepared and played fast throughout the game. I give them props for making it such a good game. But what it comes down to is that skyview just has overall more talent on both sides of the ball. The only player that was supposed to be a stand out on mt view is #99 and he did nothing that whole game. Skyview played very poor in the first half but its about how you finish. And in this case, Skyview’s offense, defense, and special teams stepped up in the second half. In my opinion skyview will do very well this season.

  16. SHSdad on October 4th, 2009 9:11 pm

    I was on the sidelines and watched the Storm come back twice to take the lead. A fluke interception of a shovel pass and a two misplayed balls by a safety were all the offense that was generated by the Thunder. The two passes were the only completions for positive yardage by the Thunder. This combined with the Storm QB’s worst half throwing the ball gave the appearance the Thunder was holding their own with the Storm . The rushing totals show that the Storm’s second best rusher out gained the entire Thunder squad.

    I can’t speak about the Thunder’s coaching but looking at how the Storm offense had positive plays involving seven different players verses only two players with positive stats for the Thunder indicates the level of coaching at Skyview is quite good.

  17. MVHS athlete on October 4th, 2009 9:55 pm

    The reason why your QB had such a bad first half was because we were getting so much pressure on him that all his balls were high. He did have a hell of a second half though so i will give him props on that. They didnt have Joe Rankins’ stats on there for idk what reason but that is another player that had positive yardage. Chapman did have a pretty good game too…and would of been better if he wasnt tackled every other play. I know the refs didnt lose the game for us. because there was about 150 to 180 plays. But come on…when the center is tackling your D Tackle…you gotta call that. And as i said before, due to reason we work so hard, thats why we get lucky here and there, and that is why he caught that shovel pass. If you look at the film closely you can see that he had a free shot on the QB, but he knew that wasnt supposed to happen, he read the play, stayed back, did his job, and got his reward. Congrats on the win…but seriously…anyone who was there knows that the outcome could of and should of gone the other way

  18. BIG Fan on October 5th, 2009 1:23 pm

    WOW..This is sports. If everything happens just like it is supposed to happen, the game should be played by the computer. Just input all the data and the winner will be spit out. It could even do a play by play. Things happen and sometimes they go aray. There is no way to count the intangibles. Sometimes “S- –” happens. Both teams played very well and it seems that some of the players just have no respect for their opponents. GOOD LUCK to all of you with your seasons!

  19. Skyview OLG on October 5th, 2009 1:42 pm

    Thunder Football Fanatic u r right 991s true position is d-end and during our game he played nose gaurd to pick on our 5’8″ 180lbs center. the fact is he didnt, he got worked, so i stick by my word, that he is average and is overrated and by the way learn how to watch film at 5:28 secs he falls on his face, not holding . to all of u that say skyview got lucky, if the score matches the stats how can u be lucky, u just got beat. u were lucky it was so close!

  20. franklyspeaking on October 5th, 2009 4:26 pm

    skyviews OLG,he tackled him hands inside or outside it still tackling
    if it makes you feel better look at it anyways you want

  21. connor hardwood on October 6th, 2009 1:02 pm

    skyview is raw and will go to state
    the skyview qb has the best arm in the aarea and just had some nervs starting league his wide recievers are also the best in the area and the 2 td catches by number 6 were clean he did hhave his hands on him but he didnt push of anyways its a contact sport so all you people quit your winning

    our defense is also one of the best in the state and no one will ever have more yds against skyview then their offense has in a game!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  22. gshlman on October 6th, 2009 8:48 pm

    I think you need to go watch Grayson throw the ball. I like the Skyview kid too, but until you have seen Grayson throm a 65+ yard pass on the run you have not seen a great arm. I think Dodge will be a solid college QB- but he does not have Grayson’s arm. Knowing Dodge I think he would tell you that himself he is a good kid.

  23. skyview fan on October 7th, 2009 12:53 pm

    Mountain View played really well and it was a good game til the end. Dodge gives props to the mountain view defense, they flew to the ball and played well. He “didnt have the half that he usually does” but its partially because MV played a good half of football on defense so congrats. But they needed to keep the pressure on dodge or he’ll pick a lot of teams apart and thats what happened. Hands down he gives respect to MV as a TEAM. Showed sportmanship and have a fast and fired up defense. And GSHLMAN…dodge gives props to grayson hes a great athlete and has all respect for him..Skyview vs. Heritage should be a good game. October 30th

  24. connor hardwood on October 7th, 2009 12:55 pm

    hey i saw grayson and ya he is a good athlete but not a good quarter back
    look at the records of skyview and heritage who is the better team

    when grayson goes to college he will not make it as a quarterback
    he will have to find a new position because he is to good of an athlete to not play but you cant have a kid that cant throw play qb

    and when skyview plays heritage i bet dodge has 2x more yds throwing than grayson and more total offensive yds

    grayson cant run an offense all by him self

    when skyview plays heritage it will be like takin candy from a baby

  25. Football spectator on October 8th, 2009 9:02 pm

    Gshlman, I have seen dodge throw and I have seen Grayson throw. Dodge has a
    much better arm. Grayson can throw but dodge throws lasers.

  26. GSHL Fan on October 8th, 2009 10:19 pm

    Dodge has a better arm than Grayson??? Are you guys (probably the same person) nuts, retarded, or just morons? “Dodge throws LASERS.” Or “Can’t have a kid that can’t throw play QB.” Wow. I bet Dodge is embarrassed that you guys are coming on here posting such moronic statements like this. You’re parents should be ashamed of you guys. Comments #24 and #25 are so stupid and idiotic they warrant no further time or thought.

  27. MVHS athlete on October 8th, 2009 11:49 pm

    GSHL fan. They are right. Grayson is an unbelievable athlete. So whether he plays QB or not in college, he will be successful just because of his athletic ability. And im not harpin on anybodys coach here, but our coach, who is a pretty gosch darn good one, specifically said and i quote. “Out of all the QB’s in this area, and thats including Grayson, Dodge has the greatest arm. he makes college throws like no other. I havent seen a high school player throw the 15 yard hitch from the opposite hash in many many years. He throws lasers.” and after seeing him play, that is the complete and utter truth.

  28. Football Fan on October 8th, 2009 11:54 pm

    This topic is absurd! Get a clue local football fans, really.

  29. MVHS athlete on October 9th, 2009 12:00 am

    Just watch the film. thats what were told. whats on the tape. just put it on the tape.

  30. GSHL Fan on October 9th, 2009 6:54 am

    Do you know why your coach said that, bud: because you just lost to MV and he was trying to make you feel better.
