Evergreen Runs All Over Battle Ground In 24-7 Win
Written by Bryan Levesque on October 24, 2009
The Evergreen Plainsmen can still smell the playoffs. After Friday’s 24-7 win at Battle Ground, the smell is even stronger.
Evergreen jumped out to an early 10-0 lead at Battle Ground following a 35 yard FG from Septi Danciu and an 18 yard TD run by RB Quwontae Wallace. Battle Ground could only muster one score, a 73 yard jailbreak screen pass to RB John Simon who blew past the Evergreen defense up the home sideline cutting the lead to 10-7.
Evergreen controlled the game with its running and Plainsmen RB Jolon Souchex added a 4 yard TD run in the second quarter to give Evergreen a 17-7 halftime lead. After a scoreless third quarter, Evergreen tacked on one more TD when Lasean Richardson punched one in from 4 yards out.
Evergreen is now 4-4 and 2-2 in league play with the win. The Plainsmen will play Mountain View as the road team on Friday. Evergreen can claim a share of second place with a Kelso win and a Heritage loss on Friday. If both Kelso and Heritage loose, Evergreen will finish in a two way tie with Heritage for second and gain the leagues #2 playoff bid due to their 28-14 win over Heritage.
With the loss Battle Ground drops to 3-5 and 0-4 in league play. Battle Ground will travel to Kelso on Friday.
