Camas LB Anthony Fallin got the Papermakers on the board with his 54 yard fumble return for a touchdown in the first quarter. Camas defeated Meadowdale 40-0 to advance to the 3A Semifinals.

The Camas Papermakers defense was on display and in full glory Saturday night at Doc Harris Stadium. Aided by short fields and a couple of defense scores, the #5 ranked Papermakers beat #6 Meadowdale 40-0 to advance to the 3A Semifinals. LB Anthony Fallin made the games first big play when he picked up a fumble and ran it back 54 yards for a touchdown in the first quarter to give Camas an early 7-0 lead. Later in the second quarter Fallin recovered another fumble, this one set up Camas with a short field that led to a 13 yard Zack Marshall touchdown run and a 14-0 lead. Marsahll ran for 81 yards and the one score on 23 carries in the game versus the tough Mavs defense. After yet another Camas fumble recovery, this one by ??, QB Tony Gennaro hit WR Jonathan Warner in the end zone from 25 yards out for the quick score and 21-0 Camas lead. The Papermakers took the three score lead into the break after 4 first half takeaways. Gennaro opened the second half with a 16 yard touchdown to TE John Norcorss, his second of three passing scores in the game, giving Camas what then looked like an insurmountable 28-0 lead. On the next drive, the Papermakers defense struck again when John Ashford sacked Mavs QB Brian Marty in the end zone for a safety and a 30-0 Camas lead. Marsahll ran back the free kick across the 50 when on the next play, Gennaro hit Warner for a second touchdown, this one from 34 yards out and the nail was hammered firmly in the coffin with a 37-0 Camas 3rd quarter lead. Camas was able to officially send the game to a running clock when John Payne recovered a muffed punt inside the Mavs 20, which set up a 25 yard Roldan Alcobendas Field Goal and a 40-0 Camas lead with 4:23 remaining in the game. Gennaro finished the game with 189 yards passing and 3 touchdowns while Warner caught just 3 passes but had 89 yards and 2 touchdowns. Camas held the Mavs to just 73 rushing yards and 156 total yards while pitching their second post season shutout.

Camas improves their record to 11-1 on the season with the win. The Papermakers will play #3 O’Dea (12-0) at The Tacoma Dome Friday, time TBD in the Semifinals of the WIAA State Playoffs.

    Great job Papermakers!!!!

    I really wish the announcer would be a little bit quieter. As soon as our fans start to show some excitement, he blasts over the PA with some dumb announement. I’ve never heard anyone more in love with their own voice. It actually squelches the fan support. He actually kills the enjoyment of prep football.

    Announcer…please learn to control yourself or go away.

  2. John on November 20th, 2011 10:20 pm

    Camas Fan, Sorry we happen to love our announcer, Why don’t you go away!!!!!

  3. Grazinghippo on November 20th, 2011 11:27 pm

    Are you kidding? We just had our… What… 15?? year anniversary for croswell being our announcer…. The man is a camas legend. Honestly one of the most humble all around great person and teacher at camas. I dont even know what youre referring to either. Announcing who made tackles? What down it is? Who made big plays? Starting line ups? Is that what’s squelching the fan support?

  4. Tiannam on November 20th, 2011 11:45 pm

    Camas Fan. THANKYOU.

    I know he’s been around forever and everyone is like “Oh yeah, ole’ Cros! He’s the BYEEEEEST! Hoo-hah!”

    But seriously. Everyone I bring to the games after awhile is like “What’s up with the announcer, he’s kind of annoying.”

    The band is actually not allowed to play regular kind of crowd music in between plays because it will interrupt Cros’ little play calls. Which pisses me off. No wonder the student section this year is half of what it was last year.

    Sorry… finally had a camas fan who was suffering as I have been for years. Kind of intimidated not to say anything since everyone at Camas “Loves ole’ cros”. And I mean, don’t get me wrong, I love the guy. Great man. Great teacher. Camas classic. Good announcer for a 2A losing or mediocre team. Not a dominate state playoff digital new doc harris PA announcer.

  5. Scrapper on November 21st, 2011 2:00 am

    Tiannam, Camas doesnt like you either. Suck it up dude. Im glad our band doesnt play after every play, it would and does get annoying hearing the same songs over and over again. And what does Croswell have to do with the student section? And as a leader of the student section, we love our Camas fans, the turnout, the band, and Croswell. How can you complain about anything Camas when were in the semis?? Maybe you should be a Union fan…

  6. Camas Fan on November 21st, 2011 10:28 am

    I’m sure he’s a nice man and a great teacher, but it’s too much. Sorry for having an opinion that I’m certain is shared by others.

    He’s gotten worse over the past few years. I’m not asking that he be replaced, I’m asking him to tone it down.

  7. Observer on November 21st, 2011 11:16 am

    Interesting observatiuons around Cros. Camas does seem to provide more game info than some announcers but didn’t know it bothered folks. Looked like there was lots of happiness on having a great season…………… “But hold everydthing, there’s a flag on the play.” You think the band and the announcer bother you, did you notice one of the cheerleaders was WAY too tall and the inflataible Papermaker looks chunky…………..sheeez folks.

  8. Tiannam on November 21st, 2011 11:55 am

    Did you not hear me say that I love Cros too? He’s just not a good PA announcer. If you think he’s so good then tell me why.

    Haha “Camas Doesn’t like you either.” that’s a good one. I think I was correct in saying that no fans have spoken out because “ya gotta love ole’ cros”. Obviously you don’t know anything about me or Camas so I would just be quiet dude.

    You don’t like the band playing REAL songs like they do at colleges and pretty much everywhere else? I went to the Camas/Fort game last year and their 9 member band was playing cooler and better songs in-between plays and their PA sounded like a real PA.

    I’m sure REAL Camas fans would agree with me. Fans who have graduated from the high school and travel to ALL the games. I don’t know what kind of fan you are.

    On the football end of things, would someone explain to me how it is that Bellevue is playing in Kenniwick this weekend? I thought once it got down to the final four teams all games were in the Dome? Thanks.

  10. Storm from EWU on November 21st, 2011 12:37 pm

    Kennewick is the home team for semis. When an eastside team is in that position then the game is played over there rather than in the dome. Same situation as in 2009 when skyview made the semis but had to travel to Joe Albi stadium in Spokane rather than the Tacoma Dome to take on the Ferris Saxons.

  11. Ketto on November 21st, 2011 2:30 pm

    The band doesn’t play not because of Cros’ announcing, please don’t say that when you don’t know that is the case.

    The band doesn’t play unless it’s between quarters, after a score, halftime, or after the game because a few years ago we tried it and we’d get constant “sideline warnings” from the refs to quit. For some reason the refs think it’s okay for other schools to play but think it’s outside interference if Camas band plays. I was in the drumline during my time at CHS and this was always the case, and so Mancini (the band director) told us to avoid playing when there is action going on down on the field.

    I don’t know if that has changed since the new stadium opened, but I think it may have been due to the fact that 1/3 of the entire old stadium would be filled by the band. Now it’s 1/5, so it wouldn’t be as loud when compared to crowd noise, but it was a factor back then. The reason we thought this was the case is because a few years ago during the playoff game against Mt. Si they were allowed to play when the football players were doing their thing, but Camas tried it and we got a sideline warning. Why? Because we had a bigger band, and were louder, I guess.

    Similarly, the band doesn’t play out of respect for the football players themselves — anyone who was at the Lakes quarterfinals game last year will know what I mean by this. Our band being so loud means that it often overpowers the coaches trying to talk to each other before plays, which could hurt us. Remember when the entire football team told the band to stop playing last year? Yeah.

    “REAL Camas fans would agree with me” you have absolutely no respect for Camas’ legacy and why we are what we are. The fact we haven’t built a new high school is because the people here want that one high school small town feel, and that kind of announcing is EXACTLY what Croswell provides. He makes sure that every kid gets the credit they deserve for every play, which is what high school football is about. During the game you could literally feel the excitement in his voice when he was talking about the fumbles and such. He is part of what makes Camas football Camas football.

    A “real Camas fan” would appreciate that, instead of wanting generic monotonous announcing like what you often get elsewhere.

  12. makers on November 21st, 2011 2:55 pm

    I think Croswell should go to the dome.

  13. Observer on November 21st, 2011 3:03 pm

    Thanks Storm!

  14. Grazinghippo on November 21st, 2011 3:46 pm

    camas fan, in the video above you can hear cros announce several times. Please point out at what point he is squelching the support, because I sure do hear plenty of cheering…..

    Tiannam. Just like ketto said, they don’t play because of the refs, and I like doing student cheers instead.. Bleacher creature!!

    Anyways, none of it matters, dome bound my friends, dome bound….

  15. MVHS Athlete on November 21st, 2011 9:37 pm

    you wanna hear a roarin band that intimidated the other team? watch the ferndale union highlights. now that band was crazy. im awfully suprised that the camas band is not able to play between plays and what not

  16. Storm from EWU on November 21st, 2011 9:43 pm

    No prob Observer, I’m just glad that neither Camas or Skyview have to do that this year. This way I can do thanksgiving on Thursday followed by a Tacoma Dome double feature on Firday and Saturday lol.
