Skyview Dominates Battle Ground From Start To Finish In 52-0 Road Win
Written by Bryan Levesque on October 8, 2010
It did not take the visiting Skyview Storm long to let everyone in Battle Ground know that they were here.
Ellis Henderson took the opening kickoff back 79 yards for a touchdown. Well, he did, however it was called back in what was the first of many very questionable flags throw through the game Thursday night. Skyview still managed to score, on the drive, when FB Taylor Millard ran in from 2 yards out capping off a 9 play 70 yard drive that was mostly RB Parker Henry left, Parker Henry right. Henry would find the end zone on the next storm drive, a 13 yard touchdown.
The second quarter opened with another Henry touchdown, this time a 15 yard run. QB Kieran McDonagh later hit WR Karl Graves from 7 yards out and WR Forest Russell on a 29 yard swing pass. Skyview hit the lockers with a 35-0 halftime lead.
The second half started a little strangely as Skyview kicked off to Battle Ground, however the Tigers kick returner moved away from the kick when it took a bad hop, allowing Skyview to posses the kick at the Tigers 14. Henry appeared to score on the next play but was called down just inches from the goal line. He got his third touchdown of the night on the next play from a yard out. On their next possession, back-up QB Jordan Berni found on a 28 yard pass for the 49-0 lead which got the running clock going.
The only other scoring in the game was a 4th quarter 40 yard field gaol from Skyview kicker Nick Phillips.
Skyview improves to 4-2 on the season and 2-0 in league play with the win. The Storm will host Evergreen (1-4 1-0) next Friday at Kiggins Bowl, 8:00 p.m. With the loss, Battle Ground falls to 1-5 on the season and 0-2 in league play. The Tigers will travel to Union (4-1 0-0) next Friday at McKenzie Stadium. 8:00 p.m.
