Game Recap – Camas 38 Columbia River 14

Written by Bryan Levesque on September 17, 2011

The #5 ranked Papermakrs found themselves down 6-0 early on the road after turning the ball over on the opening kick off. Columbia River RB Remick Kawawaki scored his 4th rushing TD of the season to put the host Chieftains up early. However after that it was all Camas. The Papermakers outscored Columbia River 38-8 the rest of the way as RB Zack Marshall scored via the run and on a pass from QB Tony Gennaro. Gennaro also threw a TD to WR Jonahtn Warner and ran in a 1 yard sneak. John Norcorss also took a fake punt 42 yards for a TD in the 4th quarter. The Papermakers defense again looked very good as they held Kawawaki, the 3A Greater St. Helens League leading rusher to 67 yards rushing, 87 yards below his per game average.

Camas improves their record to 3-0 on the season and 2-0 in league play with the win. The Papermakers will travel to Skyview (1-2) Friday at Kiggins Bowl, 8:00 p.m. Columbia River falls to 2-1 on the season with the loss and 1-1 in league play. The Chieftains will travel to Hockinson (1-1) Friday at Nautilus Field, 7:00 p.m.

    River came out and played a GREAT football game…Being someone who appreciates just a good old football game it was just that…If River punches it in before half from the 2 and doesn’t fumble going in from the 12 in the 3rd the game could of been a lot different…I didn’t feel Camas was in control until the fake punt…River clamped down on the roll out and hit Zach every time the ball was snapped…I would be surprised if River loses another league game…They came to play…that being said what can anyone say about Camas’s defense…one scoring drive that started at their 12 after a fumbled kickoff…another from their 46….Norcross is a beast and Warner is starting to play up to his potential…Gennaro is playing within himself..very steady…next weekend should be fun…

  2. GSHL Football Fan 2011 on September 17th, 2011 12:49 pm

    “If” the offsides call on the opening KO is called maybe that first score doesn’t happen. “If” River punches it in before half or “If” they don’t fumble in the 3rd they may have kept the game closer. “If” they stop the fake punt things may have been different. Don’t be surprised “If” River loses another league game as well. I know, that’s a big “If”… Great job Camas!

  3. Expert Mike on September 17th, 2011 1:57 pm

    Funny, I always know when Bryan is going to slow-mo a play.

    The game was fun to watch. Camas has a lot of guys (Warner, Marshall, Brown, Eagle, Payne) that are really fun to watch. River has a lot of heart and fight in them, and they definitely will be awarded with a playoff spot if they keep it up.

  4. wsumj on September 17th, 2011 1:59 pm

    So after following the tweets for this game last night, I was hoping to get a look at the catch that Eagle made inside the 5. Darn obstructed view camera angle!

  5. Expert Mike on September 17th, 2011 2:01 pm

    I have to say, it’s a real shame that big beam was in the way of the Zack Eagle catch. It was one of the best catches I’ve ever seen by a High School kid. Bummer.

  6. Expert Mike on September 17th, 2011 2:02 pm

    …but it least it is the big picture on the front of the Columbian’s sports page.

  7. Scrapper on September 17th, 2011 2:16 pm

    Well put Football Fan… Camas will definately make the game against Skyview a real dog fight. I predict a very close game…

  8. Tiannam on September 17th, 2011 2:47 pm

    Does anyone else feel like %90 of the fans who come on here are from Camas/Skyview/Union?

    I know one thing is for sure is that as a Camas fan I won’t be traveling up to Kelso… I’ll be at the Kiggins bowl in blue cheering on the Storm. That’s going to be a great game.

  9. That guy on September 18th, 2011 2:02 am

    5:35. I’m pretty sure this pass was intended for #74 and Marshall just happpened to be there for the over throw…

    How bad are officials these days?

  10. Scrapper on September 18th, 2011 9:13 am

    That guy, 74 is an O lineman, the pass was definately intended for Marshall… Illegal man down field is another issue, but stays consistant with the poor officiating that always takes place at River. (like the not called John Payne touchdown catch that i believe had to be settled for a FG, and the head official spotting the ball further from the 1st down marker after 3rd down, but Marshall converted on 4th down anyways)

  11. Scrapper on September 18th, 2011 10:35 am

    Side note. The news coverage of this game really grinds my gears. Fox 12’s Friday Night Lights went to River’s high school and showed their pep rally for the game, which is totally fine, but only showed River highlights and Camas lowlights during the actual game portion. Didnt show the great, and sometimes outstanding plays that Camas had to earn a victory as they try to work their way up the rankings. Friday Night Lights barely even showed Camas, who was the better team Friday night. News coverage can be so biased like that, and im glad this site isnt as biased as this.

  12. Scrapper on September 18th, 2011 10:56 am

    And one more question. Who got ejected from this game? and why?

  13. 2A on September 18th, 2011 11:31 am

    there was some shoving and pushing by one of the Wess brothers, not sure which, 59 i think….. but he got let back in the game later, i think that his coach pulled him, not the ref.

  14. Scrapper on September 18th, 2011 12:01 pm

    Well im pretty sure he got ejected because i saw the ref mouth the word “ejected” first hand, just didnt know who or why. River could be in some big trouble if he was ejected and went back in later… not to speculate too much.

  15. 2A on September 18th, 2011 12:49 pm

    i think i saw it was #59 get removed, but i saw him back in the game later, i could be wrong though, coulda been a different person that got ejected then.

  16. 2A on September 18th, 2011 2:13 pm

    i think if the wess brothers was both on the dline i think camas would have trouble defending both they had trouble guarding one… CR has a pretty good d they held zack Marshall to 60 yards rushing and he had 20 attempts that 44 kid had big runs on the 5th ranked team it was a closer game then scoreboard said if they had the touch down before half and didn’t fumble at the 1 it would have bee a different ball game

  17. 40 on September 18th, 2011 2:37 pm

    big ‘runs’ 2A? I think you meant big ‘run’. Kawawaki had one 45 yard run and then had 11 more for a total of about 20 or so. And the ‘ifs’ dont really mean much. if camas doesnt muff the opening kickoff then river has 0 at half. The ifs go both ways. I think the score did a good job of telling the tale. River is a solid team, Camas is a good team. I think Camas can beat anyone in 3A not named bellevue and lakes.

  18. 40 on September 18th, 2011 2:41 pm

    speaking of 2A. Any River folks on here who have an idea if River will be 2A next year? I respect opting up, they are opting up right now if I remember correctly, but River would be a dominate 2A team and be a legite title contender next year with frank and kawawaki running the ball.

  19. 2A on September 18th, 2011 3:16 pm


  20. Tiannam on September 18th, 2011 4:27 pm

    How could River be a 2A team? Weren’t they a 4A team not too long ago?

  21. 40 on September 18th, 2011 5:18 pm

  23. 2A on September 18th, 2011 6:11 pm

    frank had big runs on the soo called good camas d they said river couldnt score on them or run and they did

  24. 40 on September 18th, 2011 6:45 pm

    you obviously have a hatred towards Camas and so I won’t spend anymore time with you on this other then what I say here. The 1st river scoring drive started on the camas 12. congrats for grinding that one out, you really had to put that drive together. the ‘almost’ score at the end of the 1st half started somewhere around the Camas 35 and was aided by a questionalble PI call in the endzone. Unfortunately for river they could not punch it in from the goal line and the Camas D STUFFED kawawaki. I’m sure they were just lucky. In the 2nd half river seemed to tweak their scheme a little and had a little success, but could not capitalize. Again, I’m sure it was just luck for Camas they were able to bend a little and not break.

    I don’t think river is terrible, I think they are 1 dimensional (running), but the 2 guys they have running are pretty good at it. I think the river/mt view game will be very good and will probably go with river on it….but they are not even close to being in the same league as Camas. Camas does have a pretty glaring weakness right now though and if they cannot open up a few holes for marshall winning in the playoffs will be tough.

  25. 2A on September 18th, 2011 7:00 pm

    thats not true its just funny how people over hype camas it was a good game the scoreboard just made it seem like rivers terrible

  26. Bryan Levesque on September 19th, 2011 10:11 pm

    We uploaded an end zone shot of Zach Eagle’s diving catch from Friday’s game at Columbia River on our Facebook Page – https://www.facebook.com/gshlfootball

  27. Jack Supporter on September 20th, 2011 8:10 am

    I would be interested in finding out more about the rumor of CR moving down to 2A because I heard that rumor a few months ago. That move would make the 2A even stronger in football. With Mark Morris always tough, RAL possibly struggling this year but likely bouncing back next year, and Washougal, Hockinson, and possibly Woodland on the rise, adding CR would make for an exciting 2A.

  28. camashype on September 21st, 2011 1:20 pm

    Interesting how #1 had 3 catches for 60, with one coming in less than a minute left. Rivers D seems to be better than expected….or maybe someone has inflated numbers because MV is not as good as expect?

    Camas won yes but I would say that 3 catches against a nobody D, does not look very good. Marshal 20 carries for 60. Offense is not as good as it needs to be? 3rd game of the season should be better.

    Just sayin

  29. Expert Mike on September 21st, 2011 1:31 pm


    I was at the game. River was doing a lot of double coverage on Warner. There were times where River was literally putting the safety almost directly behind the corner covering Warner. It reminded me of how teams used to treat Evergreen’s former great wideout Kyrell Hudson, who Oregon State offered a full ride to a few years ago.

  30. camashype on September 21st, 2011 2:25 pm

    I was also at the game… but it can’t be double coverage if every pass he goes for is close to the line of scrimmage. Which besides the one at the end of the game, they were. Plus it looked like River pressed him and he was unable to get into his route because of it, but the db pressing never dropped and stayed with him, which would signal man and the possiblity of double coverage. It looked to be a zone d, which I’m pretty sure River was running.

    Plus Iseem to remember Hudson still getting yards and catches in such situations. Again I’m not saying he is a bad player, it just doesn’t fit that he destroyed MV and didn’t do the same to River.

    So again either River’s D is better than expected or MV is not as good as expected.

  31. GSHL Football Fan 2011 on September 21st, 2011 2:49 pm

    camashype- River’s D is great! Is that what you wanted to hear? Twice you have called out MV in your threads above. MV did not execute very well (give camas credit) nor did they game plan very well against camas. I don’t think anyone will deny that. What MV has been able to do is learn from that game and move on as you should. You know the old saying, “people in glass houses shouldn’t throw rocks”…not all that long ago CR was on the wrong side of a very lop sided loss and my guess is CR was not as bad as the score indicated that night either. See you week 9.

  32. ChrisH on September 21st, 2011 4:49 pm

    So what does everyone think about Camas @ Skyview friday. It’s going to be a great game no matter what the outcome is. I could see it going either way, but since Skyview is at home I think they will win. We’ll see if they can slow Henry down and keep Skyview’s receivers covered.

  33. 40 on September 21st, 2011 6:07 pm

    River has ran that style of D for as long as I can remember regardless of the reciever. I’m not expert enough to really know the nuts and bolts of it but the corners seem to come off the edge and have contain quite often and the safety who is almost directly behind the corner then plays man. I don’t know off anyone else who does this and over the years River has been pretty good with it when they have the athletes to exectue it. I suppose any system is good though when you have the personel.

    My head says your prediction is right on skyview/camas chris. Camas has shown they can stop skyview the last few years on D, the big question is can we get just enough ground game going and can we make some big plays through the air and special teams.

  34. 40 on September 21st, 2011 6:36 pm

    now that I’m thinking about it, maybe it is only the corner on the short side of the field who comes off the edge. I’ve been trying to replay their D in my head for the last 30 minutes….I feel sorry for my wife who tried to have a conversation with me while I did this…

  35. camashype on September 21st, 2011 8:35 pm

    gshl football 2011-

    Played you already, remember.

    Was just curious as why some of the guys numbers seem low for the score. They came of a great week and the O numbers for these guys don’t seem as high. I don’t play the game so I was wondering if others were thinking the same. I’m sure MV didn’t execute as well as they could (game 2 of the season). Just wondering if CR played up to them. Your also right MV did win big last year against CR, and so did Camas.

    Let me rephrase my question so you can understand…. Was the CR scheme what caused the problem or did CR just have the bodies to slow these players? Because so far I’ve only heard of 2 or 3 players from the team, I’m just trying to figure it out. Where MV has the so-called ‘transfers” that are making the difference (again acording to posts, credibility….eh?)

  36. GSHL Football Fan 2011 on September 21st, 2011 9:06 pm

    camashype- I explained it very well in my last thread of why I thought MV struggled against camas. Can’t speak for CR and won’t. Not sure what “credibility” your talking about either.

  37. GrazingHippo on September 21st, 2011 9:16 pm

    Camas 38 skyview 24

  38. Just A Fan on September 21st, 2011 9:33 pm

    Skyview vs Camas

    Both are excellent teams but Skyview’s overall defensive team speed will seal the edges and keep the Camas running game in check. Camas hasn’t showed they can run between the tackles. Both teams have quality receivers – so it’s even there. Camas has an edge with their kicking game , they have several 40+ field goals this year. Skyview’s running game will control the tempo and will ultimately be the determining factor. – Skyview wins by 14

    Why are we still talking about Camas vs MV? Camas will win league, River and MV play in week 9 probably for 2nd and 3rd in league. The interesting part will be if Prairie beats River and River beats MV – then you have a 3 way tie.

  39. waterboy on September 21st, 2011 9:44 pm

    River’s D will SHUT DOWN Prairie’s offense.

    Mountain View
    Columbia River

    In that order, mark it down!

  40. GSHL Fan on September 21st, 2011 9:57 pm

    Camashype – why do you continue to bring up the camas-MV game? That was 2 weeks ago. It is crystal clear that MV is using young and inexperienced players, especially DBs. Don’t talk about gameplanning. It’s about Jimmys and Joes and Camas has the best in the 3A. MV is 1-1 in league with two non- league games left to fine tune before facing the rest of their league opponents. If you look at last season, their record is exactly the same. If you take away the Camas game (and it is clear they are REALLY good) and the scores against Evergreen and Prairie, MV looks ahead of where they were last year. And this is with a bunch of first year starters. MV is extremely well-coached by a staff who gets the most of their kids. They’ll be fine. Good luck with the rest of your season.

  41. GrazingHippo on September 21st, 2011 10:36 pm

    Just a fan- I dont think the wrs are even. Camas has a slight edge i think. Camas d-line will keep “the determining factor” in check. I can understand your opinions though. Should be a fun one!

  42. camashype on September 22nd, 2011 9:42 am

    gshl fan –

    Thank you. That is what I was wondering “MV using young inexperienced players”. That was what I did not know, and that explains the difference. I was not attacking MV, I was just wondering about the difference.

    The game this week will be great. Camas will finally be tested.
