Evergreen Snags First Victory Of The Season 38-14 Over Visiting Battle Ground

Written by Bryan Levesque on October 2, 2010

Evergreen led Battle Ground 17-14 in the 4th quarter before a wild ending that went all the Plainsmen way as they won 38-14 to get their first win of the 2010 season.

Evergreen led 14-0 at the half following a pair of rushing touchdowns in the first quarter. Kicker Timur Zhividze’s 36 yard FG in the third made the score 17-0 and it looked like Evergreen was about to pull away from the visiting Tigers. But Battle Ground fought back and after a pair of rushing touchdowns from Kokou Akengue the Tigers had pulled within 3 early in the 4th quarter.

Richie Townsend scored on a 10 yard run later in the 4th giving Evergreen a 24-14 lead. Then on the ensuing kickoff, as the kick seemed to be headed out of bounds, a Battle Ground player jumped up and batted it back into the field of play, right into the hands of Evergreens Artem Konkin at the 12. Konkin ran it into the end zone, however it was ruled a muff and you are not allowed to advance a muff. Townsend punched in a 2 yard run a few plays later and Evergreen led 31-14 all but ending it for the Tigers. Evergreen had 349 yards rushing in the win.

With the win Evergreen improves to 1-4 on the season and 1-0 in league play. The Plainsmen will host Kelso (4-1 3-0) in a non=league game Friday at McKenzie Stadium 5:00 p.m. Battle Ground falls to 1-4 on the season with the loss and 0-1 in league play. The Tigers will host Skyview (3-2 1-0) on Thursday at District Stadium 7:00 p.m.

  4. Egreens42 on October 2nd, 2010 9:38 am

  5. "NEWOFFENSEGREEN" on October 2nd, 2010 10:56 am

    To pass a comment on the poll question, it was actually the triple header at McKenzie !! Union and MV a good defensive game and then the Evergreen first half of play and then Battle Ground second half play.

  6. Egreen28 on October 2nd, 2010 11:05 am

    In HS rules, if the ball crossed the neutral zone after it was kicked, but was muffed and returned behind the neutral zone, the kicking team can recover and advance the ball.

  7. Meow on October 2nd, 2010 11:33 am

    Te’kwon didn’t even suit up for the game.

  8. Egreens42 on October 2nd, 2010 12:17 pm

    no one on the battle ground evergreen game info. cares about m.v or union! “newoffenseegreen”

  9. Dude, Really? on October 2nd, 2010 1:59 pm

  10. UltimateCamasFan on October 2nd, 2010 4:02 pm

    Wow! Evergreen actually won! They are championship caliber! Wait, who did they play?

  11. thisguy on October 2nd, 2010 5:52 pm

    can we get a video of the game bryan

  12. Bryan Levesque on October 2nd, 2010 6:06 pm

    it will be up later tonight. working on 5 games.

  13. Tiannam on October 2nd, 2010 6:33 pm

    I’m sure you Could get help splitting up and editing the videos if you needed it.
    That’s alot of work haha.

    But I appreciate all the work you do! I love this site.

  14. BIG Fan on October 2nd, 2010 10:35 pm

    Hey ultimatecamasfan – I watched a lot of HS football and athletics. I even coached a little. And a win is a win. Why are you cutting down BG? Their kids played hard, they are out numbered in every game with about 34 JV/Varsity players in all. I talked to a guy in the stands who told me that they have 2200 students there (4A size) but, about a little over half cannot play athletics because of religious reasons. This leaves them about 1000 students (2A school?). He also said BG cut Middle School athletics about 10 years ago. I don’t feel sorry for them, they are who they are. They do the best they can and work hard. Don’t berate a kid or team who shows up on Friday Night and wants to compete. They play hard and they don’t give up.

    Have fun celebrating your victory!

  15. Tigersupporter on October 3rd, 2010 12:04 am

    Big Fan well said.

  16. Ealum on October 3rd, 2010 11:09 am

    I was not aware of Battle Ground’s student situation. What religious group out there accounts for so many students no participating in sports?

  17. Someone on October 3rd, 2010 5:16 pm

    anyways ultimatecamasfan the hardest opponent you guys play this year is skyview and maybe mtn view. That is like a fraction of the teams played be evergreen Richland #6,Eisenhower on the bubble before the game, and lakes which is a top 5 team (with being #1 on some peoples rankings), and mtn view too. The hardest team you guys play this year is skyiew so you shouldn’t be bashing evergreen

  18. A-non Uhmis on October 3rd, 2010 6:19 pm

    Evergreen looks good if they can just stop the run. It looks like the tough non conference schedule is panning out.

  19. MeanMachineBleacherCreature on October 3rd, 2010 6:53 pm

    Someone, thats because of the 3A schedule. 3A has 6 league games instead of 4. Both Skyview and Timberline were supposed to be very good this year, and both didnt live up to their expectations (so far). The one weak out of league schedule game would be Heritage, but even they are very good for a one win team.

    Evergreen will lose the rest of their games this year. Their schedule difficulty doesnt mean anything when they lose every game except to BG…

  20. 40 on October 3rd, 2010 7:34 pm

    Ealum, it’s apostolic lutheran

  21. BIG Fan on October 4th, 2010 7:09 am

    I think that 40 is right – Apostolic Lutheran

  22. jt on October 4th, 2010 8:18 am

    hey mean machine bleacher creature why do you keep talking down evergreen do you need a friend little buddy .. evergreen will go to play offs and be 3-1 in league youll see then maybe youll shut up must be camas fan lmao … no friends as a kid and probably got your name while on your highschool team

  23. jt on October 4th, 2010 8:19 am

    anyone can lose at any time its football remember

  24. robman7789 on October 4th, 2010 11:06 am

    Evergreen is going to beat Union (or Skyview)? I was there early last Friday and they weren’t playing anyone competitive that’s for sure. can’t see it happening.

  25. Action on October 4th, 2010 11:22 am

    Hey JT, who will Egreen lose to….Union, Skyview or Heritage? The other 2 they will beat, right? Just wanted to make it clear.

  26. Evergreenfan on October 4th, 2010 1:22 pm

    Evergreen is back and will role Union Skyview and Heritage. You heard it here first. Oh wait. No really, Evergreen can get 3rd place and make playoffs realistically. Just beat Heritage. OH wait.

  27. Interestrante on October 4th, 2010 1:34 pm

    Union Skyview and Heritage will paste Evergreen by a lump sum of 136-17, mark my words. Unions D wont give up a score and will power over the Plainsman. Skyview will stay balanced and tear Evergreen apart, maybe giving up a lte score. Heritage will Air it out and the game will be over before the second half.

  28. MeanMachineBleacherCreature on October 4th, 2010 3:27 pm

    Ya, can everyone agree that its not just because im a Camas fan that my comment makes sense? haha

    And Jt, the Mean Machine is the mascot for the Papermakers. So good try.

    Also, im currently not on my high school’s team. But thanks for the compliment thinking ive graduated.

  29. jt on October 7th, 2010 5:32 am

    alls good people but when e beats two outa three of these teams you will all come up with your silly reasons why , but hey thats ok its not like any of your schools have a state title. mean machine sorry for thinking you graduated should have known being camas and all probably bought that diploma , and the reason your mascot is a creature is because who wants to see a pad of paper running around the stands is that on youur lettermans jackets . simple fact is we will be second at worst in league and for sure CAMAS will never be state champs booster money and recruiting will only get you so far ……. oh yeah we sould do this for wrestling season too bryan that would be awesome … great job with site

  30. jt on October 7th, 2010 5:36 am

    by the way creature have your school play three top 10 teams in the state the first three weeks of the season and then talk about your record .. at least union played ranked teams and there d would eat you up .

  31. "NEWOFFENSEGREEN" on October 7th, 2010 6:34 pm

    What’s up with the video ? You watch for 1 second and wait 10 seconds for the next 1 second !! Some one please explain . It takes 2 hrs to a week to watch 11 minutes of video !!!!

  32. MVHS Athlete on October 7th, 2010 6:36 pm

    Well its probly your computer cuz it worked for me

  33. "NEWOFFENSEGREEN" on October 7th, 2010 6:40 pm

    Hey jt you have a point, but Evergreen is beaten up too. There have 3 lineman and 1 running back out . Next yr I hope they pick up FV or Washougal or Woodland instead !!

  34. "NEWOFFENSEGREEN" on October 7th, 2010 6:41 pm

    Thanks MVHS Athlete ……….

  35. 40 on October 7th, 2010 7:41 pm

    NEWOFFENSEEGREEN, change it to 360pi instead of the 720 it is set at. Mine does the same thing if I try and watch it at the better resolution.

Got something to say?
