Written by Bryan Levesque on October 30, 2010
It had been a long time since the Mountain View Thunder football team defeated Columbia River.
5880 days to be exact.
Mountain View needed 5 overtimes to beat Columbia River 42-41 at McKenzie Stadium in September of 1994.
Friday night it took significantly less time for the Thunder to roll to their 61-6 win. Thanks to the running clock rule, most of the 3rd quarter and all of the 4th quarter zipped away.
Thunder RB’s P.J. Jones and Sterling Reynolds zipped all over the field, combining for 352 rushing yards and 6 touchdowns.
Jones finished the night with 191 rushing yards and 4 touchdowns, giving him 1,042 rushing yards on the season, enough to lead the 3A GSHL.
Josh Parker took an interception back 60 yards for a score in the 2nd quarter, and TE Ryan Johnson hauled in a 14 yard pass from QB Ran Hansen as well in the 2nd.
Columbia River QB Justin Rinta scored the Chieftains lone touchdown on the night in the 4th quarter. RB Remick Kawawaki was held to just 27 yards on 9 carries and finished 2nd to Jones in rushing yards on the season with 910.
Kawawaki had led Jones in rushing yards entering the night 883-851.
With the win Mountain View improves to 7-2 on the season and 5-1 in league play. The Thunder travel to Timberline (6-3) Friday for the preliminary round of the playoffs. Location and time TBD. Columbia River falls to 5-4 on the season with the loss and 3-3 in league play. The Chieftains season is over.
