Kelso Scores A Pair Of Late TD’s To Edge Evergreen 21-13

Written by Bryan Levesque on October 9, 2010

Evergreen led at home 13-7 in the 4th quarter before the visiting Hilanders score twice for the 21-13 road non-league win.

Kelso struck first following a fumble recovery at the Plainsmen 44, RB Slate Miller capped off a 5 play drive with a 21 yard run for the early 7-0 lead.

Later in the quarter, Evergreen QB Anthony Thomas found Artem Konkin open in the “No Fly Zone” and connected for a 51 yard touchdown pass and tied the score at 7-7. Kelso then went 3 and out, and the Plainsmen again found the air friendly in the “No Fly Zone” on their next drive as Thomas hit Nemo Beavers from 14 yards out. Jared O’Neil blocked the extra point attempt keeping Evergreen’s halftime lead to 13-7.

The score remained 13-7, and Evergreen had the ball late in the 3rd, when Thomas went to the well, err, “No Fly Zone” one too many times and Hilander DB Taylor Radcliffe made Evergreen pay.

Radcliffe’s interception set up a 8 play 55 yard drive that was capped off when QB Makaio Mobbs found TE Gage Townsend open in the corner of the end zone from 4 yards out. Kelso then led 14-13, making O’Neil’s blocked kick all the more important with only 8:15 remaining in the game.

Evergreen went 3 and out on their next possession and when their punt only went to their 47, it set up the Hilanders with a short field. 4 short plays later, Slate Miller was back in the end zone, this time on a 37 yard run, and the Hilanders had their largest lead of the night up 21-13 with 4:08 left in the game.

Evergreen twice turned the ball over on downs to end the game.

With the win Kelso improves to 5-1 on the season. The Hilanders again head South to take on Mountain View (4-2 2-1) at McKenzie Stadium 5:00 p.m. Evergreen falls to 1-5 on the season with the loss. The Plainsmen will travel to Skyview (4-2 2-0) next Friday at Kiggins Bowl 8:00 p.m.

    great game by both teams but it seams like the refs were flag happy against offense regardless of team

    i might sound kind of stupid but what is “no fly zone”?

    MVHS Athlete, How can my 2-1 theory about common opponents not work when comparing MV and Kelso? It’s an indisputable fact that that they are both 2-1 with two wins and a loss against the three same teams. I did say that mountain view won by wider margins than did Kelso and lost by a closer margin than Kelso did against Union. What part of what I said can be even remotely disputed? I stated facts straight from the record book with every comment I made in that post. You can’t dispute absolute fact.

    Someone on October 9th. The “no fly zone” is the nick name given to Kelso’s pass defense. Don’t feel stupid. It’s not like that’s a well known fact. I’m not sure why the person who did the write up assumed that it was. I’m generally not the jerk that some people seem to think I am on here. I do get a little snitty when I post something that’s factually based…not subjective and some know it all’s still thinking that he/she can disputer the facts as they are.

    Objectively, Mt View does seem to be the better team. Their overall team speed , ability to run the ball, physical defense and an improving passing game would make them the favorite over Kelso…

  6. MVHS Athlete on October 9th, 2010 2:50 pm

    woah different post. And maybe your arguement works. but its weak. the fact that you guys played the same 3 opponents and mtn view has a combined score of 91 to 24 and your combined score is 48 to 69. Now that is a fact.

  7. time4achange!! on October 9th, 2010 3:01 pm

    You guys don’t remmber the most important element of any game, they still have to “Play the Game” . All the points and the same opponents don’t mean anything, they still have to play the game … Let’s hear what you guys have to say next week, after they “Play the Game” .

  8. MVHS Athlete on October 9th, 2010 4:19 pm

    Good call. Its just some good natured debating though.

  9. love the game on October 9th, 2010 5:00 pm

    when will the highlighs be up?

  10. Scotty4life on October 9th, 2010 5:24 pm

    A great Game by The scotties. I will also give credit to an Evergreen team that showed no quit and made it a dog fight. Kelso was clearly the favorite in this one but Evergreen kept it close. There were mistakes on both sides but what would you expect from a high school football team. The only thing that ruined the game for me while I was watching was the Horrible officiating. these refs didn’t know the rules at all and didn’t know what to call when they threw the flag. I dont know who those officials were but It was Very VeRy VERY HORRIBLE officiated game and the evergreen officials assoc. should be embarrassed

  11. MVHS Athlete on October 9th, 2010 6:45 pm

    Hey dude just cuz your used to getting an advantage from the refs doesnt mean it was poorly officiated. Now not knowing what to call when the flag is thrown…idk if that happened or not…but that isnt good

  12. love the game on October 9th, 2010 6:58 pm

    HIGHLIGHTS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  13. Someone on October 9th, 2010 8:26 pm

    like i said before the refs were flag happy against the offense for both teams

  14. Scotty4life on October 9th, 2010 9:24 pm

    Yeah that is what I was trying to say. I am not upset about the just the ones that went against kelso. The calls against both sides were way to rediculous. when you get refs that make as many bad calls against both teams that they did it ruins a perfectly good dogfight in which this game was. that is what I was saying about the officiating and it was poorly officiated and the officals shoud be embarassed plain and simple

  15. GOGREEN!! on October 11th, 2010 6:08 am

    I agree with the poor officiating !! One play alone may have cuz EHS the game. The fumble at the 42 and recovered by EHS.at 36. Official went to mark ball on 36 and then walked back to 42, I screamed NO !!! Officials did look around a lot looking for help from each other a lot.

Got something to say?
