Written by Bryan Levesque on October 2, 2010
Kelso jumed out to a 28-0 lead at halftime then had to hold off the Trappers for the 28-20 home league win.
Kelso RB Slate Miller had a pair of rushing touchdowns in the first half to help the Hilanders to a 28-0 lead at the break. QB Makaio Mobbs had an 86 yard rushing touchdown to open the scoring in the first quarter.
Fort Vancouver had 234 yards of offense in the second half, including 158 passing from QB Richard Vansiclen as the Trappers scored 20 unanswered and had a chance to tie the game late. Fort had a 4th and 10 on Kelso’s 30 with 30 seconds left in the game and Vansiclen just missed WR Danny Hernandez on the pass in the end zone as the ball went off his fingertips.
With the win Kelso improves to 4-1 on the season and 3-0 in league play. The Hilanders will travel to Evergreen (1-4 1-0) next Friday at McKenzie Stadium for a non-league game at 5;00 p.m. Fort Vancouver falls to 2-3 on the year with the loss and 0-2 in league play. The Trappers will host Mountain View (3-2 1-1) next Friday at Kiggins Bowl 7:00 p.m.
