Game Recap – Woodland 35 Washougal 28 2OT

Written by Bryan Levesque on October 15, 2011

The Week 7 GSHL Game of the Week became the game of the year when Woodland overcame a 28-14 halftime deficit and pulled out a 35-28 double overtime road win. The Beavers scored two touchdowns in less than a minute in the forth quarter when QB Adam Shoup ran one in form 22 yards out, then after recovering the non-onside kickoff, 2 plays later Shoup hit WR Nick Fuller from 37 yards out, and RB Cy Whitmire tied the game on the two point conversion run. After both teams failed to score in the first overtime, Shoup again found Fuller in the end zone taking the Beavers first lead of the game. Zach Falk then tackeld Washougal RB Caleb Howard on 4th down to seal the win. Washougal seemed to dominate most of the first 3 quarters of play but could not put away the pesky Beavers. Panthers RB/LB Sam O’Hara played lights out the entire night finishing with 131 rushing yards and one rushing TD in the loss. Shoup ran for 115 yards on 14 carries with one rushing touchdown and passed for 113 yards and threw the two touchdowns to Fuller in the win.

Woodland improves their record to 4-3 on the season and 3-0 in league play with the win. The Beavers will host Hockinson (5-2 2-0) Friday at Woodland Stadium, 7:00 p.m. Washougal falls to 6-1 on the season and 1-1 in league play with the loss. The Panthers will travel to Mark Morris (2-5 0-2) Friday at Longview Memorial Stadium, 7:00 p.m.

    Why is the QB #7 not throwing the ball for Washougal. Only 46 attempts this year?? What is that about.

    H.S. FootBall you got to LUV it…

    Congrats Beavers. Great shot at the league title one year after going 0-9. Pay attention Jacks, that could be you next year!!

  6. Pantherfan on October 16th, 2011 1:11 pm

    Good question, #1 panther fan. Sullivan has the best completion to attempts percentage and yards per catch average in the entire GSHL but for some reason, the coaches don’t want to use the passing game. Go figure! And why didn’t any of these write-ups include the fact that the QB had to move the ball from the Beavers 35 yard line to the Panther 25 in less than 45 seconds for the field goal attempt to win the game? That was a pretty efficient passing game, for both him and his receivers.

  7. Storm from EWU on October 16th, 2011 4:46 pm

    Perhaps the solid running is allowing the pass game to be that efficient. Coaches probably feel like they are at a good balance.

  8. Panther Fan on October 16th, 2011 7:19 pm

    Washougal has arguably 2 first team all-league candidates in Short and Boland at Wide Receiver and Tight End for the 3 year starter Sullivan to throw to, and yet the Panthers do not seem to want to use them. The one game they did start to throw the ball, against R.A. Long, Sullivan had over 300 yards passing. If they did this every game where they balance the ball around, they would still be undefeated. End of story. You can’t run the ball with 45 seconds left and try and get into field goal range.

    Hopefully the coaching staff can get this offense rolling because all of Panther Nation is hoping for a playoff run this year despite the loss on Friday.

    washougal did not lose because of not throwing the ball. yes i agree with you guys that we should throw a little bit more but the panthers lost from all the penalties and lucky plays. they had a bad coaching call, fumbled, returned for a td. and in double overtime the woodland qb just threw the ball in the air as he is about to get hit by a washougal player and woodland made a nice play to catch it.

    I have been playing, coaching and a student of the game of football for over 45 years (and this is my first year observing the GSHL). Over this time, I have never witnessed this kind of atrocious, horrific and unconscionable officiating that is pervasive within the GSHL.

    To date, I have sat in awe over a 37 penalty game, a 10 penalty half where every call went against the Washougal squad and not one against Ft. Vancouver. No less than 4 pass interference calls (pick any game) that has gone against them when the corner/safety had position on the receiver (and the penalty was called from the backside). Clock mismanagement; on a running first down where the clock should have continued to run after the chains were set and did not. Block in the back calls when a players head was clearly in front of the player. A touchdown called back on the player that didn’t even have the ball. And Friday night’s last installation, the line judge told me on the field that a defensive player’s hand could be set across the neutral zone as long as the helmet didn’t touch the tip of the ball. Huh?

    It is clear that the GSHL referees either do not have a fundamental understanding of the game or have never played the sport and/or they are told from the front office of officiating that they need to control the game on every play. I am not certain at this juncture, and I could speculate all day as to ‘why’; however, all I know is the outcome, and it has caused a Washougal loss in nearly two other games (and it did finally cost them the game this past Friday night). I do not know where I take this grievance, but clearly the officiating in this league is not designed to let the kids play ball and the officials are in control of this travesty from the first whistle.

    Furthermore, I asked a GSHL representative that was reporting from the stands on Friday night, “Have you ever witnessed a more horrific display of officiating in your life?” And to my amazement he replied, “This is what I witness every Friday night.” It’s more than pervasive and it’s unbelievable how bad it is and it’s turning games the wrong way every week. Thus, where do we turn as fans and coaches to fix this league wide catastrophe? Personally, I am going to hand this diatribe to the Athletic Director at WHS. I believe it may be up to the respective school AD’s to meet and discuss this mess with the officiating hierarchy to see what can be accomplished before the end of the season and before these people can and will hand over another game to a team that was flat out beaten in every aspect of the game.

    Coack K – can you use your wealth of experience to help our officials? These guys spend Friday nights (rain or snow or otherwise) to HELP kids. The money they make can’t be great. Personally, I would rather watch games than ref them. Some of these guys are young and inexperienced. This area has blown up population-wise over the last number of years. Just like bad coaching is all over this league, talent is diluted throughout this league, you’re also bound to have bad officials in this league. It’s what we’ve got, unfortunately. We can DO something about it or complain about it and DO nothing. On a psychological note, it’s only human nature for a person to watch a sloppy game or listen to an irate coaching staff and make “perception” calls. Just ask Heritage.

    Coach K-

    This will fall on deaf ears I’m afraid. The same Friday night referee’s are the same individual’s who do most officiating for baseball & basketball in the GSHL. They also do all the CCYF games in our area. Rick Gilbert is the officiating head so you may want to talk with him however, with the one association we have that is watered down with so few officials and many new ones, you will have to line up and take your turn complaining about poor officiating because you are not the only one and it will not change anytime soon. And your observation is correct to some degree in that I’m certain some games are officiated in a manner from beginning to end to ensure it does not get out of hand for the lesser opponent. You just have to accept it for what it is….

  15. muhahahaha on October 18th, 2011 10:51 am

    thank you ^^^

  16. Woodland on October 19th, 2011 5:35 pm

    Was #4 on washougals team ok?was it his arm that was hurt?

  17. Panther Fan on October 19th, 2011 7:06 pm

    I was at practice on Tuesday watching to see how they would respond to the loss. The team looks fine and ready to get back into action against Mark Morris. #4 was in a splint and street clothes but was running around with the team. I’m pretty sure he was just taking it easy and seeing how it felt, he should be back this week.
