Camas Comes Up Short In 32-22 Loss To Liberty
Written by Bryan Levesque on November 8, 2009
Doc Harris Stadium went out in style. For the second week in a row Camas hosted a top 5 school while being ranked in the top 10 themselves. Unfortunately for Camas, for the second week in a row, they lost a close game to the higher ranked opponent, this time 32-22 to #4 Liberty.
After falling down 7-0 to Liberty in the second quarter, Camas took a 15-7 lead following a 52 yard TD pass from QB Logan Grindy to Zach Anderson and then a 1 yard TD run from RB Tyler Fisher. After Fisher’s TD, the extra point attempt went bad, but holder Jeremy Faulkner called FIRE and found Josh Smith in the corner of the end zone for the 2. Liberty tacked on a FG at the end of the quarter, as Camas led 15-10 at halftime.
Following a Papermakers punt to start the third quarter, the Partiots scored on their first play from scrimmage as Tei Staladi ran in from 39 yards out to go up 17-15. Camas then drove down the field and retook the lead when Grindy hit Faulkner from 31 yards out to go back up 22-17. Liberty answered when RB Chandler Jenkens tiptoed down the sideline for a 15 yard TD run. Liberty ligned up and went for 2 and completed the pass giving the Patriots a 25-22 lead.
Camas attempted a FG late in the third quarter. The kick by Stuart Jergensen was plenty far enough but just to the left. It appeared good, but was so far above the upright it was hard to tell in the video.
Camas never threatened to score again in the game, and Liberty was able to run out the clock during the fourth before tacking on a late TD to seal the win.
Liberty improves to 9-1 with the win. The Patriots will play at O’Dea (10-0) next weekend.
With the loss, Camas drops to 7-3. The Papermakers season is over.
