Heritage Advances To Postseason With 31-21 Win Over Evergreen

Written by Bryan Levesque on October 30, 2010

Heritage jumped all over Evergreen early, then held on for the 31-21 win, and advanced to the postseason.

The Timberwolves look unstoppable in the 1st quarter vs rival Evergreen.

Heritage QB Jake Dahlberg threw 3 touchdown passes in the first 13 minutes of the game Friday. Meanwhile, Evergreen had only managed to gain 4 total yards of offense in those 13 minutes.

Just before the half Evergreen was able to get on the board and keep the game close at 21-7 when QB Anthony Thomas capped off a 8 play 65 yard drive with a 33 yard touchdown pass to Artem Konkin.

A scoreless 3rd quarter flew by making way for a wild 4th.

Just 5 seconds into the 4th quarter Heritage kicker Garrett Worle’s 22 yard field goal put the Timberwolves up 24-7.

Evergreen then went on a 10 play drive covering 45 yards only to fumble on an attempted reverse pitch. Heritage DL Terrel Quigley came up with the loose ball.

The Plainsmen defense held and forced a 3 and out punt. Evergreen facing a 4th and 9 from their 35 went deep once again as Thomas hit Nemo Beavers down field, and Beavers made several Timberwolves miss on his way for the 65 yard touchdown with 4:58 remaining in the game to cut the score to 24-14.

Heritage recovered the onside kick and quickly went 53 yards in just 3 plays when QB Riley O’Dell, who came in for the injured Dahlberg, took a QB draw 22 yards up the middle for a touchdown, and a 31-14 Heritage lead with 4:01 left in the game.

Evergreen would answer yet again in just 2 plays. Anthony chucked a pass deep from the Heritage 48. The ball appeared to be well under thrown, however Konkin came back and took the ball away from a Heritage defender, broke free and raced into the end zone, making the score 31-21 Heritage.

Yet another failed onside kick was all it took, and Heritage ran out the final 2:50 of the clock for the win.

Starting QB Jake Dahlberg had 283 passing yards and 120 rushing before he left the game in the 3rd quarter.

With the win Heritage improves to 3-6 on the season and 2-2 in league play. The Timberwolves travel to #5 Kentwood (9-0) Friday for the preliminary round of the playoffs. Location and time TBD. Evergreen falls to 1-8 on the season with the loss and 1-3 in league play. The Plainsmen’s season is over.

    POTW SHOULD BE Starting QB Jake Dahlberg had 283 passing yards and 120 rushing before he left the game in the 3rd quarter. He was 19-28-0 3 TD Passes…

    Great game Jake and all the Heritage players. Good luck next week. Hope all the injuries are minor and they are able to play this Friday.

    Couldnt agree more. Problem is the bias of the Skyview/Union contest. I think Brain will give it to Kizer.

  3. safetyblitz on October 30th, 2010 11:22 am

    I was just curious why O’Dell isn’t starting at QB. Does anyone know?

  4. MeanMachineBleacherCreature on October 30th, 2010 12:06 pm

    Evergreen scored 136 points this season, while allowing 327 points. Ouch.

    Egreen fans swore that they would beat Skyview, Union and Heritage this year. But instead, they lost by a total of 121-24. I tried telling them that Evergreen would lose all three, but some refused to see the truth. Oh well, hopefully they see it now…

    If Evergreen stays the coarse, it will be along time before they see winning again !!
    The kids gained unity, but lost the desire to win. The kids will transfer, especially if teams like Union need to fill avoid . The only team I saw this yr that when they got in the red zone, went backwards or lost the ball on turn overs. Evergreen football was real ugly this yr !!!!

    “I was just curious why O’Dell isn’t starting at QB. Does anyone know”?

    Yeah, seems strange since he leads the league in passing yards & completion percentage week after week. Appears to be a QB who has had a great season so far in what has been a tough season with plenty of close losses for that team. Too bad for him really. Looking at the last 2 weeks box scores, he has been dead on in relief as well.

    Good luck to Heritage heading up to play Kentwood!

  7. Someone on October 31st, 2010 8:55 pm

    i thought that evergreen recovered the second onside kick. Isnt the rule is once the kicking team gets position the play is dead?

  8. time4achange!! on November 1st, 2010 6:06 pm

    Don’t know if I could handle 1 more game Evergreen game. Never thought I say that !!! Go Heritage, you deserve it . Don’t think Evergreen wants to see 1 more ranked team, LOL !!!

    I hope their is a good turnout of Heritage fans. French Field is @ Kent-Meridian HS and is probably one of the best venues in WA. I would love to see as many Heritage fans as possible attend to bring a good atmosphere to the game. Here’s some KW Highlights if your all interested in seeing them play:

    O’dell actually doesnt lead the league in passing yards and completion percent week after week. In fact he has only led completion percent in 1 game since week 4. That was this week when he only threw 2 passes (100%) so it barely counts. Since Kieran #2 for Skyview earned the starting position for SHS he has thrown better completion % in every game over O’dell until this week (Kieran threw 17-22 while O’dell threw 2-2). In that stretch Kieran also threw for more yards in 4 of the 5 games.
    It also seems like Jake Dahlberg has been more productive, but i havent watched him as closely.

  13. High School Football Fan I on November 2nd, 2010 3:37 pm

    Laughing… you must be Kieran’s Dad Storm. Settle down will ya. Safety Blitz asked why O’Dell wasn’t starting. I follow the stats just like most GSHL fans and every week this players name is at the top of the list for passing yards and completion percentage. Am I wrong here? From what I’m told, read and saw against Camas, he was pulled after running for his life in the Union, Camas games and didn’t get the good fortune of playing BG or EHS as your QB and others have. I’m guessing he may have over 2k yards and complete 75% of his passes but who knows, he didn’t get the opportunity. I was also told this player had limited opportunities in the first 3 games, played games 4-6, less than half of game 7 and very limited opportunities in games 8-9. Pretty impressive to me EWU.

    Camas Fan!

    To add:

    All of these young men have had outstanding seasons to include many that are not on the stat leader boards. We should congratulate them all and wish the remaining in the playoff’s continued success…

    Get well soon Grindy!

    Should be fun to see Alonzell Young again he went to Heritage his freshmen year
    looks like he turned out to be an outstanding player Go T-Wolves.

  16. Storm from EWU on November 2nd, 2010 6:05 pm

    No I’m not his father. Just pointing out an incorrect statement. I simply noted with information gathered from this site alone that it was a misconception that O’dell had better stats. I do acknowledge that he has not been playing all of each game. I just think people should not blatantly mis state facts that are easily found out.

  17. High School Football Fan I on November 2nd, 2010 9:11 pm

    Here you go Storm… Just making a point to the question that was asked previously by safety blitz about the kid. It appears the latter did lead the league in passing/comp % until playing limited time for Heritage in weeks 8-9. Don’t think there is anything blatantly mistaken here. Outstanding numbers from both none the less…

    We up in Kentwood expect over 4,000 on our side when you enter the Black Hole. You will never see speed as good as ours and you will be warming up buses by half.

  19. backfromthegrave on November 3rd, 2010 11:56 am

    CONKSnation… we down here in Clark County let the scoreboard do our SH** talking for us.

  20. Action on November 3rd, 2010 11:59 am

    Conks…. really….Sounds like a pompess… Why even play then since you guys are so good, hurry and book your Tacoma dome tickets now…The best champions are humble champions…

  21. DA (KW Fan) on November 3rd, 2010 12:54 pm

    I don’t agree with Conksnation’s cockyness…but I have to agree with him (or her) that it won’t be close.

  22. backfromthegrave on November 3rd, 2010 2:13 pm

    So what if it’s not close… Lots of games this weekend won’t be close. Lets see how you do as the playoffs go on.

  23. Storm from EWU on November 3rd, 2010 3:11 pm

    Haha high school football fan. We used different processes. I determined the leader of each week, you used a running total. It seems both arguments hold water and that we have had a fundamental breakdown in communication… oh, bother.
