Electric Storm Blow Past Kelso 42-22

Written by Bryan Levesque on October 22, 2009

One offensive play into the game, Skyview led 7-0 and never looked back. Storm QB Austin Dodge found TE Dallin Shirley on a 49 yard catch and run for the TD. Kelso then drove right down the field, going 66 yards in 15 plays but came up 1 yard short of scoring and still trailed 7-0.

Skyview then scored two more TD’s, Dodge hit Ian Zarosinski form 13 yards out then on the next drive, following a fumble recovery by Shirley, Dodge hit Ellis Henderson on the next play from 12 yards out and a 21-0 Storm lead. Kelso finally scored as the Hilanders went 80 yards in 11 plays and QB Cameron Margaris hit TE Sam Young from 11 yards out and cut the lead to 21-7. Three plays later, Dodge hit Zarosinski on a 86 yard TD pass and a 28-7 halftime lead.

The Storm started the second half just like the first, and it only took two plays for Dodge to strike again, this time from 39 yards out to Karl Graves and a quick 35-7 3rd quarter lead. Kelso’s next drive, they punted, but recovered the muff and keep the drive going. The Hilanders capped off the 14 play drive with a 4 yard TD run from RB Land Sari. Up 35-14, Ellis Henderson struck again, picking off Margaris and running it back 76 yards for the score and a 42-14 lead.

Kelso tacked on a safety as Skyview had a bad punt snap in their end zone. Then down 42-16, Kelso mounted one final drive as Margaris hit Riley Miller who dove the final 3 yards for the final score ending the game at 42-22.

Skyview has clinched at least one of the 2 4A GSHL playoff spots with the win, and with either a Heritage loss to Mountain View tomorrow, or a win over Heritage next Friday, the Storm will be league champs for the second year in a row.

Skyview QB Austin Dodge ended the night going 10/15 for 263 and 5 TD, while Hilander QB Margaris was 14/29 for 192 and 1 TD. Hilander RB Lane Sari ended the night with 22 carries and 139 yards with 1 TD. Sari now has 18 TD’s on the season.

With the win, Skyview improves to 6-2 and 4-0 in league play and will travel to Heritage (3-4 2-1) next Friday.

Kelso falls to 5-3 and 2-2 in league play with the loss. The Hilanders will host Battle Ground (3-4 0-3) next Friday.

    Hats off to Kelso QB #11 Cameron Margaris. There maybe many others with more athletic ability, but he has more heart than any other person i have seen play. Watching the play at 10:40 on the video,I found myselft rooting for him to get a TD. Good game Kelso, its just too bad you had to play us at a time in the season when we are starting to hit on all cylinders. I feeling we are getting to a level of play that could take us farther in the playoffs this year. One area the storm really needs to look at is not letting up in the second half of the game when they have the lead. We are stilling making mistakes late the will cost us the game.

    CONGRATS to the Skyview Storm Football Family for clinching (at minimum) a share of the GSHL 4A Championship & doing so quietly with class…

    There’s a lot of smack being ran on this site and the STORM seems to steer clear of it despite being looked upon in a manner that puts them below so called other equals (Camas in perticular).

    Dont believe the hype Storm. As Jim Rome would say, you have “scoreboard” and at the end of the day, that’s all that freaking matters!

    Stay Classy

    I am really looking forward to next Friday night’s game between Skyview and Heritage. Skyview is the clear favorite and they deserve to be. They play good football all around. But looking back on history HHS-SHS has gone back and forth every year and it’s turning into a nice little rivalry. HHS wins 05 and 07. SHS wins 06 and 08. It’s gonna be a fun night at McKenzie. Then of course, it’s the classic rivalry of MV and EGreen. I’ll read about Camas-Union. I’ll BE at McKenzie!

    The Heritage v Skyview game for sure is being overlooked, especially since it is the appetizer for the MT V vs Egreen game. Both have playoff implications and are rivals. Hope it isnt overlooked by too many. Seems to much effort by people is being put into the Snob Bowl at Doc Harris.
