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.

    BG ‘s offense was no where to be found again. They have not shown up since the pre-season.
    Great job E-Green! Good Luck with the play-offs!!

    We just smacked down Battleground and cant wait to rip up Mountain View at OUR HOUSE.

  3. Jerry on October 24th, 2009 11:52 am

    Why did they take out that MONFORT kid ? He almost pulled off a win over MV, and they pull him before he is even warmed up. seems we got out coached yet again.

    Battle Ground game was a good game. The Tigers and coachs are a Class Act act. Kudos.

    Good luck BG next week. You guys are due!

  6. Ktownie on October 24th, 2009 1:16 pm

    I am amazed how fast Evergreen is best friends with Battleground because they want them to beat us. Evergreen your season is over. We win and you guys are done.

    It’s funny how all of the players and fans use this as a place to trash talk. Kelso is a very good team as is Evergreen and the rest of the 4A teams in the GSHL. Just because a player or players gain respect for a particular team after a game does not mean that they themselves are weak. Also, just because a team does not win a particular game does not mean that they cannot play. I personally have not been on the field to judge for myself if Battle Ground is as physical as others say they are but, alot of teams say that BG is tough. They just need to get players healed up from injuries, get their confidence back, and get things together.
    I agree that MONFORT kid has played very well in the past. But, I am not going to question the offensive coach’s decesion to replace him with PAUL. I will say that if passes had been caught by the BG receivers, if the BG offense had kept possession and capitalized on the good field position and turnovers that their defense gave them it could have been a different game. The E-Green offense pounded the ball but, the BG defense also did some pounding of their own.
    I also do not agree with the statement about coaches being out coached. It is always up to the players to execute and play hard, no matter who is coaching or what teams are playing.
    I thought that this was a good game.
    E-GREEN good luck with your play off hopes! BG I hope that you can get it going and end on a great note!

    Maybe the statement about the coaches was a little hash, fact is with the talent they have on that team they should have a better recaord. So according to your statement BG hasnt executed or played hard since pre-season.

    Hey Mr. Green for State………

    How about you worry about having a good week of practice and not talking crap on this site. Yeah Egreen beat BG but there were a lot of mistakes if you want a chance to get the second spot for the play-offs just SHUT up and put in the work this week .

    What do you think your Coaches say about you giving MV something to put on their bulliten board!

  10. GSHLFTBALL FAN on October 26th, 2009 11:39 am

    I would agree that there is some talent on that team. Here are some observations from the few games of theirs that I have seen.

    They have some good running backs. Akengue sp? has been solid and available all year. Simon has been great but has been sidelined and hampered a bit. He seems to have been moved around because of injuries. Malvo started out good, but got hurt in a game maybe Heritage/Skyview and hasn’t seemed to be the same player. The QB’s have done a adequate job with the tools that they have on the team to use. The defense has put up a hard fight in the games that I have seen.

    The problem that I have noticed is that even with weapons they just don’t have the line that can consistantly open up holes for the running game, or let their QB sit in the pocket with time and deliver the ball to the receivers. They WR’s are not fast compared to the rest of the league and also the WR’s have dropped more passes than any other team I have seen play this year, that will kill drives.

    Their line is just way undersized and isn’t able to push anyone or hold anyone off. This is not a coaching issue, it is hard when you have guys somewhere between 160-180 pounds, playing against d-lineman from 220-260.

    The bigger problem that I see is by looking back at their roster they graduate almost all of their lineman (even if they are undersized), and all of their skill players except for the QB Paul. It may be a very bad year next year and wins will be hard to come by.

  11. jerry on October 26th, 2009 12:35 pm

    What about the MV game 2 or 3 picks 2 fumbles, thats what cost them the game. That has nothing to do with thier WR’s. you have to get them the ball first. Maybe a QB change would be in order, look at the last drive of the MV game, and the only points scored in this game or the stats compared to playing time between the two QB’s. Im not saying PAUL is bad just maybe MONFORT is a better fit at this time.

  12. GSHLFTBALL FAN on October 26th, 2009 2:36 pm

    Wow Jerry. I didn’t mention anything about either QB being better than the other. Maybe you have some tie there. Since you brought it up I suppose I will talk a little about it.

    From what I have gathered on line the stats for Paul is about 60-65% completion rate and about a 3-1 td to int rate maybe 2.5-1.

    Monfort has had some good numbers also Again I think both have done about as good as you could expect with everything they have to work with.

    The difference I notice though is Monfort got a big boost in stats against a weak 2A team while Paul was hurt. He then saw time against the Skyview JV and then played a series against MV.

    I think the coaching staff gave him a chance this last week against EG as I saw him start. By the stats online he was 1-8 with 78 yards. It was a 0 yard screen pass that Simon turned into the rest. He also threw two balls that should have been caught (again my point above), threw two into the hands of defenders that they dropped, and missed badly on a few. He also had a fumble. Paul then came in and went 10-20 for 99 yards. I think he got his shot and then the coaches went with Paul. What happens this week is still to be seen for those that attend. I myself will be at the Skyview-Heritage game.

    One last note, Paul is a junior and returns, Monfort is a senior and will not. So with nothing on the line why not play your Junior.

    stats aren’t everything, and the stats you have don’t cearly paint an accurate picture.

    The online stats are not full or complete so don’t judge the Monfort kid by what you read. Maybe if you’ve seen every game with Paul and Monfort I’d understand but I doubt that you have.

    Personally I have seen every game with them and though both players have faults and good qualities I’d have to say MONFORT is the better of the duo.

    and you talk about Monfort having his shot, he is the senior and should be allowed more playing time. Though your right Paul is only a junior that’s why Monfort should play, its his last year, let Monfort get some play. If you were at that last game like you said you were you would of clealy saw Paul didn’t do better at all when they put him in for the evergreen game, from the stands it looked like he was passing to a ghost out there.

    Im just making a point, and as far as ties I just call it how i see it and im not the only one that see’s it that way, coach.

  15. jerry on October 27th, 2009 7:20 am

    One thing we do agree on is that PAUL will be back next year and does need the play time,and please do not get me wrong I like PAUL. Either way you have a good weekend and enjoy the game, thats what its all about any way.

  16. jerry on October 27th, 2009 2:15 pm

    All senior’s should play its thier last game.
