Bulldogs 35, Mountaineers 6

RAINIER — Pulling away with a 21-point fourth quarter, Montesano amassed 403 yards and rolled past Rainier in Evergreen 1A League play on Friday at Rainier.

Anthony Louthan led the rushing attack with 24 carries for 166 yards and a 27-yard touchdown to start out the fourth quarter.

He also kicked all of the PATs.

Jacob Sampair added 12 carries for the Bulldogs (3-2, 4-4) for 24 yards, including a 1-yard run to start off the scoring in the first quarter.

The Mountaineers (0-6, 1-7) scored first in the first quarter and their kick failed.

The Bulldogs, however, scored in every quarter after that.

Noah Ewing carried the ball for 31 yards and completed a 7-yard TD pass to Tristan Darst in the third quarter.

Darst had 78 yards receiving and added an interception for the Bulldogs.

Jordan Bussard also had an interception, in the fourth quarter, and ran the ball back for 21 yards for the TD.

Kyle England scored the last TD for the Bulldogs in the fourth quarter with a 68-yard run.

Logan Truax added an interception and received for 25 yards. Kylar Prante contributed the fourth interception.

“The game was somewhat ugly at times, but the win will build confidence,” said MHS head coach Terry Jensen.

He cited Truax and Bussard for fine play.

On Friday, Montesano will travel to Elma for the East County Civil War.

Comets 36, Wildcats 0

NASELLE — Naselle’s Comets beat Ocosta in a Pacific League game Friday at Naselle.

Details were unavailable.

The Wildcats (1-3, 3-5) close out their regular season at home against North Beach on Thursday.

Vikings 43, Indians 0

MENLO — Willapa Valley took control against rival South Bend to win this Pacific 2B League contest at Crogstad Field on Friday night.

The Vikings’ Seth Flemetis ran for 210 yards on 11 carries and one touchdown, a 90-yard up-the-middle run with 2:38 left in the contest.

“After what South Bend went through last week (against North Beach), we didn’t want that to happen,” a discouraged Willapa Valley head coach Greg Wonhoff said. “We didn’t want to run up the score. I’m happy for the kids, but disappointed for us as a coaching staff.”

Quarterback Matt Konigsberger accounted for three first-quarter touchdowns — a 14-yard scoring strike to Dylan Barrett and scoring runs from 16 and 61 yards.

Konigsberger finished with 102 yards rushing on five attempts and 2-for-2 passing for 36 yards for Valley (3-1, 4-3).

Trevor Cook added 93 yards on nine attempts and two scores from 3 and 17 yards out.

Robert Espina also booted a 37-yard field goal and four point-after kicks.

Ryan Overstake led South Bend (0-3, 0-6) with 85 yards on 26 carries and Dennis Johnson added 51 yards on 14 carries. Coach Tom Sanchez cited both Overstake and Johnson, along with Marcus Overstake and R.J. King, for their work on defense.

On Halloween, Willapa Valley will host rival Raymond, while South Bend hosts Naselle.

Knights 63, Elks 40

VANCOUVER — Unbeaten Kings Way Christian scored 29 points in the second quarter to go ahead 35-12 at halftime in a non-league win over short-handed Lake Quinault on Friday at Vancouver.

The Elks (2-4) kept up with the Knights in the second half, but amassed 115 yards in penalties and had two touchdowns called back. Despite racking up 449 total yards, the Elks could not catch the Knights (8-0).

Kobe Kalama led the Elks with 134 yards rushing, including a 95-yard TD in the first quarter and a 2-point conversion to end the scoring in the fourth quarter.

Julio Silva added 168 yards receiving including a 30-yard pass from Kalama in the second quarter and a 70-yard pass from Dylan Dorhofer in the third quarter. Enrique Arrequin followed with the 2-point conversion. Silva opened the scoring in the fourth quarter with a 30-yard run into the end zone.

Dorhofer added two TD runs — one for 20 yards in the third quarter and one for 1-yard in the fourth quarter. Kalama followed that TD with a 2-point conversion.

“We played well with only 10 eligible players,” said Elks head coach Darren Marshall. “We played hard, but were hurt by turnovers and penalties. Two of our TDs were held back, including a 45-yard run by (Kobe) Kalama. Our kids played hard and never gave up. We were within 14 points in the fourth quarter.”

On Friday, the Elks hit the road to Oakville.


Gators in three

At Sam Benn Gym, a short-handed Grays Harbor College squad put players out of position and withstood a fiery attack by Green River in a 25-15, 25-12, 25-20 NWAACC Western Division loss on Friday night.

Before the match, the Chokers (0-9, 8-19) learned that freshman setter Alahna Weber was out for the season with a back injury. The team was also without two other players due to illness and injury.

“We had long rallies and we competed well at times,” GHC head coach Christine Nelson said. “We were missing our blockers and we had to adjust. We had some great defensive plays — Kendell Keinhofer played great in the back row. Kendra Weilder had some great saves. We had players across the board playing in different spots and everyone had to adjust. No one gave up and they played well to the very end.”

Weiler led the Chokers with five kills, Keinhofer brought up 12 digs and setter Courtney Hagain dished out 12 assists.

Nelson cited Hagain for her play as setter, adding, “Tonight, she grew into the role knowing that that is her role (with Alahna out). She played really well tonight.”

On Friday, GHC will hit the road to take on Pierce College.
