Skyview Roars Back In Second Half To Roll Lincoln 49-26

Written by Bryan Levesque on October 2, 2010

Skyview trailed the visiting Lincoln Cardinals of Portland 26-14 in the third quarter before 35 unanswered points gave the Storm the big non-league win.

Skyview QB Kieran McDonagh had a huge night. McDonagh was 19/23 for 310 yards and 5 touchdown passes and a rushing touchdown in the win. WR Karl Graves had 8 catches for 195 yards and 3 touchdowns while WR Reiley Henderson had 4 catches for 48 yards and two touchdowns. Starting QB Kody Watts did not start due to injured and is possibly out for the season. RB Parker Henry had 136 yards rushing and a touchdown for the storm. Henry has rushed for 100+ yards in all 5 games this season for Skyview.

With the win Skyview improves to 3-2 on the season. The Storm will travel to Battle Ground (1-4 0-1) next Thursday for a league game at District Stadium 7:00 p.m.

    What happened to the great Ellis? He doesent contribute as expected. Dare we say not the best WR in league, much less the team?

    little concerned about the guys waiting to “hit the switch”….won’t get away with that against better teams…..come on Skyview step it up ….need to play a complete game…the sooner the better…..

    Wow! Huge game by McDonagh, some stability at QB is what Skyview needs to get back on the right track towards a league championship.

    For those of you LIke preacher Mcgee who were not at the game… Ellis had a great game and remember he is going both ways and was on the field the whole first half on defense covering some very good Lincoln receivers. Unlike other teams Skyview does not just have one guy who they can throw the ball to. The one time Lincoln punted to him he made them all look silly! Wait for the video and then tell me he is overrated. No one wants him to touch the ball. Not to mention the other team had double coverage on him all night with over the top safety help. If Graves and little Henderson are open wouldn’t you throw them the ball? (Watch the video) The real story was the QB #2 and his Video Game numbers… and no I am not his dad… Go Storm!

    McDonagh has proven his worth after waiting to get his chance! Great second half for this team that seems to finally seems to be finding a grove offensively.
    GREAT to see Karl Graves get loose, Skyview has the best receiving corps in the area and potentially the state with Graves and the Henderson (Riley is the best player in his class as well) boys in tow.

    Keep doubting the best player in the area (E. Henderson); dont forget what he did down the strentch last year in the post season. This offense doesnt focus on getting him the ball and has enough talent to balance things out.

    Every team spends their weekly preparation looking for ways to stop him from getting his hands on the ball & running away from him on the defensive side (check out last nights punt return for more evidence) yet he always seems to do something special.

    Personally I expect this team to begin a serious run now that things have settled at the QB position!

    Wow….you guys all saw stuff I didn’t see…I saw a 1-3 Lincoln team come in and
    hand the once #8 ranked team in Washington their lunch….period, end of story……

    Skyview again like against “Idaho”…didn’t panic and stayed within the game plan..
    rallied like a house on fire and kicked them back to Portland….only one problem with this style of play….get into the playoffs and it won’t work……I’m pretty sure the rally cry of “NBLC”….will come down to Union…get behind on those guys…good luck…I do hope they figure out how to get Ellis involved in the offense more often… will just free up Graves even more…..until then someone over there needs to show the kids the game starts in the first quarter….has Skyview scored first in any game this season?…..

    Hardhitter, to answer your question, Skyview has only scored first in the Heritage game. Which, might i add, went to OT.

    I think Skyview needs to pick their game up, or they just may get upset by Battle Ground, Evergreen, or River. Unlikely, but Skyview needs to improve a lot if they want to put Union away.

    When you have a receivers that get open you throw the ball to them. If one of them is double covered you throw to the others. Because E. Henderson is a real threat teams plan on ways to stop him from getting the ball. Thus, allowing others to get the ball. The Storm has alot of players emerging and stepping up because of teams trying to “shut down” E. Henderson…I think this is a sign of a great team. Keep up the great work! If I was Papa Henderson, I would be smiln’ from ear to ear!

    hey hard hitter did you not know on top of all that these other people have said about ellis he wasnt even 100 percent that game and when you have parker henry karl graves and riley henderson as other options in your offense when ellis is covered why not use them? and with mcdonah at quarterback they are a better team. watch some of the lincoln video because your simply wrong.

    Skyview proves they can finish games week in and week out. Top Notch GSHL Football.

  14. fbfann813 on October 3rd, 2010 9:45 pm

    i think its really interesting that the very first part of the game the ball was kicked into the endzone and last time i checked in high school if it goes in the endzone you cant return it and its an automatic touch-back.

  15. Bryan Levesque on October 3rd, 2010 11:05 pm

    yeah, and the white hat was standing right on the line. I guess he was thinking that since the Lincoln player was in mid air, and possessed the ball before it crossed the goal line, that he could then take it out. But he never had control of the football in the field of play… How knows man. I just used the “ask an official” link on the EFOA web site. I will let you know what they say.
