Mountain View Explodes In 4th Quarter To Defeat Battle Ground 28-20

Written by Bryan Levesque on October 17, 2009

Both Mountain View and Battle Ground were coming off disappointing performances last week, and with both teams at 0-2 in league the looser would be out of the playoff race.

Battle Ground looked dominate early, as the Tigers took the game’s opening drive 68 yards on 8 plays, and QB Chris Paul found WR John Simon from 8 yards out and the Tigers had an early 7-0 lead.

The next 12 minutes of the game saw 6 outs, 1 INT and 1 turn over on downs. Battle Ground had a chance to bury the Thunder early as they had 3 straight possessions start in Mountain View territory, however the Tigers failed to score on all 3 drives (INT, downs, punt).

Mountain View finally got things going, and drove 80 yards in only 6 plays when Thunder RB P.J. Jones ran in from 16 yards out and tied the score at 7-7.

As the second half started, the Tigers again marched right down the field, going 47 yards in only 4 plays as Komivi Akengue ran in from 4 yards out and gave Battle Ground a 14-7 lead.

Each team turned the ball over on their next drives then they each punted. Mountain View struck next as they started the 4th quarter, Thunder WR Andrew White found a wide open Rashan Williams from 33 yards out on a halfback pass. The extra point was not good and Battle Ground still led, 14-13.

The Tigers fumbled on their next drive and Mountain View made them pay, as the Thunder took the short field and drove 38 yards in 6 plays as QB Lucas Swanson ran in from 1 yard out. The Thunder went for 2, and Swanson hit TE Zach Chapman in the back of the end zone on a jump ball, giving Mountain View a 21-14 lead.

Thunder DB Andrew White picked off Paul 2 plays later, and P.J. Jones made the Tigers pay, as he ran in from 63 yards on a 2 play 80 yard drive giving Mountain View a 28-14 lead.

The Tigers did not give up and drove 68 yards on 5 plays when QB Jordon Monfort found Simon again from 18 yards out cutting the lead to 28-20 with just under 2 min remaining. The onsides kick was recovered by the Thunder and they were able to run out the clock and hold on for the win, and a slim chance at post season play.

    BG where did your offense go? I hope they get thier offense going again in the last two games. Their defense keeps fighting and giving them good field position but, the “O” can’t get it on track and goes three and out or turns it over. If the offense gets on track it will put pressure on the opposing offense and take pressure of of the BG defense.
    Mt. View did a great job by working hard and kept fighting. They were patient and made their own breaks. GREAT JOB MT. VIEW!
    That Monfort kid for BG can throw that football. I never heard of him till this year. I think he has close to a 90 percent pass complitions. He also has 6 TD’s this year in the two games that he has got playing time. That’s a kid that wants to play….
    GOOD LUCK with playoff Hopes THUNDER!!!

    Hey does anyone know where BG’s Justin Reynolds is playing college ball at? I hear he is breaking receiving records somewhere.

    MV playoff hopes end when they play the Plainsmen in two weeks!

    are you joking me. there is not a chance the egreen will beat us.

  5. begreen on October 18th, 2009 6:17 pm

    Oh yes we will. We tried to get cute against Skyview, but we ran power left/right/and through them all night. We will do the same to you. Your defense is not tough and your offense is predictable. You should beat Heritage next week, I’ll give you that. But you won’t beat us. Focus on them this week, then we can get after it.

    Calm down boys. Let your play on the field speak for you…..That’s where it matters.

    To bad they didnt play MONFORT sooner in the year, maybe they got a clue, i doubt it.

  9. MVHS athlete on October 19th, 2009 2:02 pm

    im happy for you. we will just throw it long and short and in between and let all our athletes run through and around you. You stand no chance

    hey BGFAN yes i know Jordan Monfort has a great arm but doesnt get to show it to much he needs to play more..

  11. Deb Hood on October 22nd, 2009 1:06 pm

    I personally Know “Monfort”, Jordan is QB and his twin brother Adam plays also. Both boys have a passion for the sport ! Jordan wants to see his team win! He has not ever been QB until this year and wants to play football in college (big college or small). Did anyone notice he’s a left handed QB? It is awesome to see him throw! AND he’s accurate at long distances… AMAZING!!!! TOO bad he didnt play QB last year!

    Any of you BG folk know how Manny Melo is doing? Is he still playing?

  13. camas alumni on October 22nd, 2009 5:02 pm

    didnt melo graduate like 2 years ago?? i remember him when camas had greg beasley at HB

    I saw Montford a few times this year for BG and he looks pretty good considering his limited play and the amount of time spent playing the position. That says alot about the position on the team though when you have two fairly new guys to the position trying to win the job each week. I love watching left handers throw since you don’t see it that often and it just looks unique. It is my understanding that Heritage has 2 left handers backing up Grayson that are pretty special as well. Should be fun next year to watch all 3 of them sling it around.

Got something to say?
