Skyview’s Season Comes To End With 28-21 Loss To Auburn

Written by Bryan Levesque on November 13, 2010

If I told you the Skyview Storm would have scoring drives of 4 plays 67 yards 1:10, 3 plays 48 yards 0:31, 4 plays 66 yards 0:58, you would say ‘well yeah, that’s Skyview football’.

If I told you that Skyview would have 5 3 and outs, and have an interception ran back for a score, you would call me crazy.

Well unfortunately for the Skyview Storm, they both happened Friday night in a 28-21 first round playoff loss to Auburn.

Storm QB Kieran McDonagh was 10 of 14 for 126 yards and 2 touchdowns, including a 52 yard deep pass to Karl Graves with 13 seconds left in the half to cut the Auburn lead to 21-14.

Auburn on the other hand, just keep the ball all night,  well at least for over 30 minutes of the game. The Trojans had a scoring drive of 12 plays 54 yards that took up 6:00. They also had a 10 play drive in the 3rd quarter that ended in a missed 28 yard field goal, but took 6:23 off the clock, and the final drive of the game that went 13 plays 61 yards but more importantly took up the final 5:57 of the game.

It is hard to get the offense going, when there is no time on the clock.

Trojans QB Max Pratt did a lot of the damage on QB keepers, rushing for 117 yards on 27 carries, including a 2 yard touchdown run. RB Austin Embody added 82 more on 13 carries and had a 18 yard touchdown run late in the 3rd, which ended up being the game winner.

Auburn’s star RB Alphonse Wade looked good early before leaving with an injury. Wade had 5 runs for 48 yards and got the scoring going whit his 30 yard touchdown run, in which he ran through the tackles of about 3 Storm defenders before breaking free and darting into the end zone.

Skyview WR Ellis Henderson had a big night running the football, as he ran one in from 23 yards out to keep Skyview in the game after falling behind 21-0. Henderson had 3 runs on the night for 65 yards.

Parker Henry had tough sledding all night as the Storm running game just could not get on track all night. Henry finished with 43 yards on 13 caries. He did take a screen pass from McDonagh 34 yards for a score late in the 4th to cut the lead to 28-21, but Auburn never gave the ball back to Skyview.

With the loss Skyview falls to 8-3 on the season. The Storm’s season is over.

    Great season guys! Keep your heads up

    Turning point of the game was 3rd qtr, 3 and 14 for Auburn. They completed a long ball to the tight end when there were two SV players there to simply knock the ball down. Looks like they tried for the interception instead. Auburn missed the field goal on that drive but took another 4 min off the clock. If SV needed one more drive, that is where they lost the chance to get one.

    This was clearly a one sided football game. Although one bright spot for the storm was there punting game. Skyview is losing some talented seniors this year.

  4. time4achange!! on November 13th, 2010 9:45 am

    I noticed the Storm ran running plays on first down and got nothing all night. Often they followed with another run for nearly nothing. Henry ran hard, but into an expecting wall. Maybe if they threw more on first down, the run may have opened up. The middle of the field was open all night and the Storm didn’t take advantage of that. The Storm had a good season for sure, congrats !!!!!

  5. Auburn!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! on November 13th, 2010 9:50 am

    great game!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  6. time4achange!! on November 13th, 2010 9:51 am

    Spainwa, you are rt. That play was huge . Not only did they lose time on the clock, they lost field position also. I wonder how much that fog bothered the teams ….

  7. Ro' on November 13th, 2010 10:56 am

    Thank you for allowing me to be apart of it all! You are truly special…

    Skyview, very good season. Sometimes you just get beat, 8-3 is a pretty good finish.

  9. UnionFAN on November 13th, 2010 11:40 am

    Great Season Skyview…one you can hold your heads up about.

  10. Storm from EWU on November 13th, 2010 2:23 pm

    Great season again, dissappointing last game but we got to see some last minute brilliance from Ellis. Cant wait for next year and to see how Kieran and Reiley can develop for sure. NBLC 2010!

    Great season #63 Dylan Bratlie

  11. UO 1 on November 13th, 2010 4:23 pm

    NBLC!! Funny that your primary goal is only a League Championship!! Way to set your goals high, get it and nothing else left to play for. Enjoy your turkey at home!!!!

    As it all plays out, depending on Camas result tonight, GSHL Teams, Fans, Players need to stop trash talking each other on this site and focus on getting better and making a statement in the playoffs next year!! SUPPORT EACH OTHER AND CHALLENGE THE REST OF THE STATE!!

  12. redman on November 13th, 2010 4:42 pm

    Are u high? Union has been in the top four the last two years. And skyview was last year. Get off your high horse and show some respect.

  13. reboundronnie on November 13th, 2010 5:29 pm

    the mighty gshl is not fairing so well,
    skyview (out first round)
    Union (blown out, did not make first round)
    MV (out, did not make first round)
    RA Long (out, did not make first round)
    Kelso (blown out, first round)
    Heritage (blown out, did not make first round)
    Mark Morris (wins in first round, argueably has the best draw in the playoffs)
    Camas??? If they go down tonight, wow

  14. Storm from EWU on November 13th, 2010 8:19 pm

    Go suck it UO 1!

    NBLC!!!!!!! SKYVIEW!!!!!!

    Which incidentally is about all the argument that is really necessary here.

    Oh yes, great win Camas, way to gut it out. Take it to State Papermakers.

  15. southerner on November 13th, 2010 8:24 pm

    Camas didn’t go down, they move on! Lakes at home. Second time these two teams have met. Go Makers!

  16. Groovy Groovy on November 14th, 2010 10:47 am

    Hey U0 1… Let’s try not to talk about things we know nothing about, huh? Skyview has 2 goals… in order represented by 2 sayings:
    1. NBLC
    2. 129! That means 129 miles to the Tacoma Dome, where the state game is played.
    But its okay if youre sore about Unions loss though…

  17. MultipleD on November 14th, 2010 9:49 pm

    That Auburn defemsive linemen number 71 DOMINATED!!!!!!!
    none of those storm linemen were strong enough to stop him from clogging up that running game!

  18. Truth on November 21st, 2010 7:49 pm

    I don’t know any program in the world that wouldn’t want to compete for a league championship every year. I don’t think your coach would settle for always being #2 seed from your league. No matter what they accomplished in the State playoffs the Storm and the Papermakers can call themselves champions… Guess who those kids will be around for the remainder of the year? All those they beat along the way to being called a champ. They won’t see another kid or fan from Lakes or Auburn for the rest of the year (unless they make it to State in another event) But they will be around those from their league for the rest of the year. Please…every program wants to be able to say they are the best in their area first and foremost. Do you think that Auburn feels good because they took second in their league and got destroyed in the Qtr. finals? I know that the Skyview player felt terrible after the loss (and the end of their 2nd goal) and then a couple of days later went at least I’m still a LEAGUE CHAMP!! And that’s the TRUTH! Get Bigger, Faster, Stronger cause next year will be here sooner than you think. Until then PEACE!

    It’s only 96 miles from MMHS to the Dome

  21. donkeyshow on November 21st, 2010 10:19 pm

    Way to go mark morris. Think your good enough o play skyview in the pre season yet??..

  22. MM fan on November 21st, 2010 11:23 pm

    Oh of course lol. Even better.

    Sure. I’d love to see them play Skyview pre season. It’s always good to play tough and talented teams, regardless of the outcome.

  23. MM fan on November 21st, 2010 11:54 pm

    Actually, we played Skyview in basketball last year and a double-header in Legion baseball this summer. Skyview isn’t just a football school is it?

  24. Storm form EWU on November 22nd, 2010 11:33 am

    Nope, Skyview has generally been a good all around school that hasn’t necessarily dominating in anything consistently. Recently volleyball has been a real strength but tends to have a tough time in the state tourney. Same with soccer I believe. Students have good opportunities in most sports there. The girls basketball team has been a real power in recent years, second to Prarie though in my opinion.

  25. Storm form EWU on November 22nd, 2010 11:34 am

    Congrats MM, time to get it done all the way.

    EWU Eagles no.1 in the Nation!
    Good season Storm
