The game almost all of Clark County had been waiting for all season did not disappoint. Skyview captured it’s forth straight 4A Greater St. Helens League Championship with a 44-27 home victory over Union. After both teams scored on their opening drive, on runs by each teams star running back (5 yard run for Skyview’s Parker Henry and 8 yard run for Union’s Brandon Bordy-Heim), the Storm scored the next 16 points, a pair of Henry rushing touchdowns and a safety, to take a 23-7 lead in the second quarter. Union scored just before the half and then early in the third quarter, both Brody-Heim rushing touchdowns (19 and 2 yard runs) to cut the lead to 23-21 but Skyview answered that with a pair of their own scores, a 1 yard run by QB Kieran McDonagh, then a 67 yard screen pass from McDonagh to Henry, to extend their lead back to 16 points at 37-21. Union RB Gabe Rego cut the lead to 10 no a 2 yard run in the 4th, but the Titans would not score again. Skyview however would tack on one more McDonagh QB sneak to seal the win. Parker Henry finished the night with 180 rushing yards on 23 carries and 3 rushing touchdowns and had the one 67 yard reception for a forth score. McDonagh threw for 152 yards on 8 of 15 passing.
