Seagulls 48, Cardinals 0
WINLOCK — Raymond racked up 311 yards of total offense on its way to blanking Winlock Friday, 48-0, in a non-league football game at Winlock.
Darol Ratsavongsy racked up 108 yards and three touchdowns on 10 carries for the Gulls. His first score was on a 23-yard run, followed a few minutes later by a 2-yard scamper in the second quarter. He added an 8-yard touchdown run in the final quarter.
Elliott Murdock carried the ball four times for 56 yards and one touchdown on a 20-yard run with 1:28 to go in the first half. Alex Sida carried the ball six times for 47 yards with one TD on a 30-yard run in the second quarter. Raymond hit the locker room with a 27-0 lead at halftime.
Rayce Newman opened the scoring in the second half with a 25-yard pass to Marvin So. Jace Duckworth ended the game with a touchdown with 9:05 to go in the fourth quarter.
The PATs in the first half were kicked by Kason Koski and in the second half by Andres Martinez.
So was the leading receiver for the Gulls (2-1) with two catches for 50 yards and a touchdown. Rayce Newman was 3-of-6 for 71 yards and a touchdown.
James Hamilton had nine tackles for the Gulls and Ratsavongsy added eight.
“We came out flat in the first quarter and made some mental mistakes,” said Gulls coach Rob Clements. “We were unable to control the game at the beginning. We began producing at a high level when it mattered. I am happy with our intensity after the first quarter.”
Clements praised Hunter Borden, Michael McFadden and Grant Camenzind for a good job getting blocks, allowing the defensive standouts to get their tackles.
On Friday, Raymond will host Ocosta.
Hyaks 28, Comets 0
OYEHUT — A multi-faceted rushing attack, plus a stifling defense allowed North Beach to start its Pacific 2B League campaign with a shutout win over Naselle on Friday night.
Pedro Gonzalez’s 76-yard punt return for a touchdown helped open the game up for the ninth-ranked Hyaks (1-0, 3-0) late in the first half. Elijah Towery made an acrobatic catch on 25-yard completion from quarterback Carson Ketter for the hosts’ first touchdown early in the second.
Saul Gonzalez, from 3 yards out, and Skylar Wells, from 19 yards out, scored North Beach’s final touchdowns in the fourth quarter. Saul also added a 2-point conversion run and Naselle helped with a safety — hiking the football over the punter’s head and out of the end zone.
According to North Beach head coach Todd Bridge, the Comets owned a cumulative 104-0 score on the Hyaks over the past two seasons. On Friday, North Beach limited Naselle to just 75 yards of offense, most coming on the final drive of the night.
“For us to shut them down is huge,” Bridge added.
Jordan Chong led the Hyak rushers with 58 yards on eight carries, and Pedro Gonzalez added 48 yards on 17 carries. North Beach had seven different ball carriers on the night and ran for 178 yards total.
Bridge cited linebackers Justin Chong and Jacob McCabe-Brown and defensive lineman Caleb Bridge for their play on defense. Bridge also cited the second-team defense for holding Naselle on a goal-line stand to end the game.
On Wednesday, North Beach will hit the road to take on Hockinson’s junior varsity team in a rescheduled matchup at 6 p.m. The Hyaks’ original opponent — Olympia JV — cancelled the game early Friday.
Cougars 6, Bobcats 0
OLYMPIA — A powerful Capital tennis squad swept Aberdeen on Friday in Evergreen 2A Conference play at Olympia.
The state-seasoned Cougars had little trouble dispatching the Bobcats, winning all matches in straight sets, and giving away just three total games in three singles contests.
“We left here in the rain and it was a quick match,” said Bobcat coach Andy Duffy. “It went as expected. They are a powerhouse.”
At the state tournament last year, the Cougar singles player Ty Gentry placed second, and a third-place state doubles team included the team’s current No. 2 singles player, Doug Doenges. Most of the Cougar players returned this year.
On Monday, the Bobcats (2-3) will host River Ridge.
Ty Gentry (C) def. Cole Edwards, 6-0, 6-0. Doug Doenges (C) def. Warren Pratt, 6-1, 6-2. Travis Miller (C) def. John Solan, 6-0, 6-0. Vincent Sandphinti-Kellen O’Neil def. Ryan Solan-Connor Webber, 6-0, 6-2. Sanpith Duddu-Max Power def. Jac Cooper-Cody Swor, 6-2, 6-2. Art Dalessandro-Matthew Monk def. Levi Rose-Juan Venegas, 6-3, 6-2.
