Battle Ground Wins 20-14 In Double Overtime At Home Over Woodland

Written by Bryan Levesque on September 17, 2010

The Battle Ground Tigers (1-2) won their first game of the season at home Thursday night when they defeated the Woodland Beavers (0-3) 20-14 in double overtime.

The win was Tiger head coach Larry Peck’s first win as a varsity head coach.

Following an interception by Tigers DB Tyler Bergeron, QB Chris Paul hit Kevin Haynes from 27 yards out for the 7-0 lead late in the first quarter.

Later in the second quarter, 1 play after Woodland’s Jake Elliott stripped the ball away from a Battle Ground RB, Beavers QB Adam Shoup hit a wide open Nick Fuller for a 51 yard TD. The extra point was no good leaving Woodland trailing 7-6.

Bergeron then returned the kickoff 61 yards to the Beavers 20, but following a fumble they were unable to capitalize. The Beavers ended up punting on their posession, and Battle Ground then drove 63 yards in 1:11 seconds and scored when Paul hit Nohi Brede from 5 yards out, giving Battle Ground a 14-6 lead at the half.

Following a mostly uneventful 3rd quarter, things got interesting mid way through the 4th.

Woodland appeared to go 3 and out from their 20 when a late flag was thrown and roughing the passer called on Battle Ground which moved Woodland to their 35. On the very next play, Woodland QB Adam Shoup under threw Fuller down the right sidelines, and when Fuller stopped to look back for the ball, he and the Tigers defender both jumped up for the ball and got tangled up. Another flag was thrown and defensive pass interference was called. Now out at the 50, Shoup then did connect with Fuller on an 18 yard pass down to the Tigers 32. Battle Ground held and forced a 4th and 10 play form the 32, when Shoup again threw for Fuller, and yep, you guessed it, another flag. This was clearly a push off by the WR, Battle Ground would decline and take over…. waht? They called defensive pass interference again? Yep! Woodland took over at the 17 and ended up scoring when Shoup hit Fuller on a fade to the back of the end zone from 5 yards out. Woodland tied the game at 14 when Shoup hit David Lubinski for the 2 points.

Each team had the ball 2 more times and could not score, forcing the over time.

In the first OT, both teams attempted a halfback pass. Battle Ground just missed a 28 yard field goal. Woodland attempted a 30 yard field goal, but it was blocked by Bergeron setting up a second OT.

In the second OT, Shoup was picked off by Brede on the Beavers first play. On the Tigers second snap, Paul hit Jake Blackman over the middle on a 23 yard pass down to the 1. On the next snap, Haynes took the fullback dive in for the score and the win.

Both Battle Ground and Woodland missed plenty of opportunities in the game to take control. Battle Ground had a hard time holding on to the football, while Woodland had a hard time catching it. Both teams are young and will be able to learn a lot from this hard fought game.

    Okay Battle Ground got just as many calls as woodland, Woodland got a touchdown called back. So there shouldn’t have even been an overtime in the first place.
