Game Recap – Heritage 21 Battle Ground 20 OT

Written by Bryan Levesque on October 22, 2011

In one of the most evenly matched games all season, Battle Ground and Heritage slugged it out all evening at McKenzie Stadium Friday night. In fact, they still could not determine a winner after regulation and had to go to overtime. After Battle Ground scored on their first play of the overtime session on a 25 yard touchdown run by RB Trevor Ingram, the Timberwolves appeared to be on the ropes facing a 4th and 11 from the 13 when they were up. No problem however as Timberwolves QB Joey Cooper threw a perfect pass into the corner of the end zone were WR E’Lon Mack made a great play on the ball to haul in the 13 yard score. First year head coach Jack Hathaway gambled and went for two and the win with the home crowd behind him. It paid off as Cooper avoided a sack and found a wide open Rajheem Carie in the end zone for the 21-20 overtime win. Mack finished the night with 8 catches for 78 yards and two touchdowns. Ingram ran in a pair of scores for the Tigers and had 138 yards rushing on 20 carries in the loss.

Heritage improves their record to 2-6 on the season and 1-2 in league play with the win. The Timberwolves will host Evergreen (0-8 0-3) Friday at McKenzie Stadium, 5:00 p.m. Battle Ground falls to 4-4 on the season and 2-2 in league play with the loss. The Tigers will host prairie (5-3) Friday at District Stadium, 7:00 p.m.

    Heritage is going to be the best team in the next two years with that young O and D line they have playing right now. Considering they won the Freshmen league chamionship and now most of them are varsity right now they will be the team to beat. Forget Skyview, and Union. While they r playing Seniors right now for them to graduate and heritage and camas are both playing sophmores. Those two are gonna be the teams to beat around the state if the kids dedicate themselves.

    As much as I like your assessment,and I am a big Camas fan. I don’t agree. The teams like Union and Skyview are so deep they just retool each year. They have great coaches that make the talent they have better. When programs are successful they get 100 to 150 kids out for football which gives them an edge on selecting the very best for varsity. Yes you may have a talented freshman team but how the coaches assemble their varsity is key to success. Also how they develop during the next three years through summer camps and year round weight training and nutrition diets will determine much of the success on the field. How committed and devoted is Heritage to that program will tell the tail.
