Beavers 50, Eagles 22

TENINO — Tenino took advantage of Elma’s missed opportunities in the first half to roll past the Eagles with 468 yards of total offense in Evergreen 1A League play Friday at Tenino.

The Beavers (1-0, 3-0) remained scoreless in the first quarter while Elma scored first with a safety. The Eagles (0-1, 0-3) also scored in the first quarter on a 1-yard run by Layne Sutten. Reynaldo Ayala kicked the PAT.

Sutten passed to Todd Swinhart for a 51- yard TD in the second quarter. Ayala kicked the point-after try.

The final Eagle score came in the fourth quarter on a 13-yard pass from Sutten to Brian Maslen. Maslen was the leading rusher for the Eagles with 22 carries for 152 yards. Swinhart was the leading receiver for the Eagles, with 80 catches for 130 yards.

” We didn’t take advantage of opportunities in the first half,” said Eagle coach Jim Hill. “We basically blew it. We need more mental toughness to win.”

On Friday, Elma hosts Rainier.

Gulls 57, Cardinals 0

RAYMOND — Raymond recovered a botched punt snap in the first quarter and never looked back, scoring 35 points in the first half and blanking Winlock in non-league play on Friday at Raymond.

Marcus Lundy recovered the snap on the first play of the game. Carte Bisbee scored a 62-yard punt return in the second quarter. Andrew Hamilton, Alex Sida and Darol Ratsavongsy rounded out the scoring in the first half with TD runs of 24 yards, 1 yard and 1 yard, respectively. Hamilton made all the PATs in the game.

Sida scored first in the third quarter on a 22-yard TD run. The snap was fumbled for the PAT, but Bisbee recovered and threw to Sida for the 2-pt. conversion. Elliott Murdock ended the third quarter with a 17-yard TD run. Terry Broten ran 25 yards in the fourth quarter for the final score of the game.

Lundy had two carries for 58 yards and Hamilton added five carries for 44 yards and a TD. Ratsavongsy added six carries for 45 yards and a touchdown. Sida carried the ball five times for 33 yards and a TD.

Ratsavongsy was the defensive standout for the Gulls (1-2), with 13 tackles, including three for a loss and a sac, and one interception.

“Our whole defense played well with good intensity,” said Gull coach Rob Clements. “Winlock played hard, but we did a nice job of blocking. A lot of our young players got good varsity experience tonight.”

Clements praised Ratsavongsy for fine all-around play.

On Friday, Raymond travels to Ocosta.

Comets 43, Hyaks 6

NASELLE — Naselle racked up 439 yards of total offense and scored 29 points in the second quarter to roll past North Beach in Pacific League play on Friday at Naselle.

Carson Ketter passed to Steven Fry for 20 yards for the lone Hyak touchdown. The two-point conversion failed.

The Comets (1-0, 3-0) remain unbeaten.

“I was hoping we could make a game of it,” said Hyak coach Todd Bridge. “We needed to do a better job, especially on the perimeter. I thought we could do better, but we did not come close.”

On Thursday, the Hyaks (0-1, 1-2) will host the Olympia jayvees.

Vikings 41, Wildcats 7

Aberdeen 3 (7, 61), Capital 3 (7, 58)

Every game counted on Friday as the Aberdeen boys tennis team pulled out a win against Capital High School at home, and, with it, sole posession of the Evergreen 2A Conference lead.

The Bobcats (4-1) found themselves locked in another tie at the end of the match, this time having to go to games won to provide the tiebreaker. It was Aberdeen’s third match decided by tiebreaker — and the first decided by games after ties in wins and sets. The victory dropped the Cougars out of a deadlock with the Bobcats in the standings.

“Capital’s solid … for us to come out on top, that’s a pretty good win,” said Aberdeen’s coach Andy Duffy.

Aberdeen’s Dillon Rowe dropped his first set against Capital’s Travis Miller in No. 1 singles, then battled back in a gruelingly long match to win, 2-6, 6-2, 7-5. Cole Edwards and Dominic Salick cruised to wins to complete a singles sweep for Aberdeen.

“Dillon had a really good win today,” said Aberdeen coach Andy Duffy. “He just stayed steady, he didn’t panic, and his serve was a weapon, that’s for sure.”

All three Bobcat doubles teams fell to the Cougars, but Duffy pointed out that even the two games won by the No. 1 Doubles team of Eddie Yee and John Solan made a difference. Yee and Solan fell to Capital’s duo of Mathias Burlingame and Doug Doenges, 6-1, 6-1.

“I told them, even though that’s the number one doubles team in the league, every game mattered,” Duffy said.

Aberdeen’s duo of Charlie Deitrich and Devan Harke fell in straight sets, while Warren Pratt and Reilly Fairchild dropped their final two sets after winning the first.

Aberdeen travels to River Ridge on Monday.
