RAYMOND — Raymond amassed 421 yards on the ground on its way to blanking Ocosta in Pacific League play on Friday at Raymond.

Grant Camenzind added six tackles, one of which was for a loss, and a sack. Michael McFadden had one sack and four tackles, including one for a loss.
“We controlled the line of scrimmage and that was the key to the win,” said Gulls coach Rob Clements.
On Friday, Ocosta will host South Bend while Raymond travels to North Beach.
Vikings 33, Comets 15
MENLO — Sophomore running backs Trevor Cook and Seth Flemetis combined for 235 yards and three touchdowns on the ground to drive Willapa Valley past Naselle in a Pacific 2B League contest on Friday night.
Cook led the Vikings (2-0, 3-1) with 138 yards rushing on 17 carries and two touchdowns — a 69-yard sprint in the fourth quarter and a 2-yard plunge in the second — and finished with three scores overall. Cook hauled in a 43-yard touchdown pass from Matt Konigsberger in the first quarter.
“Our sophomore running backs, we just keep depending upon them and they keep producing,” Willapa Valley head coach Greg Wonhoff said. “We were able to get our passing game going tonight. It wasn’t as much as we’d like, but it was better than it has been. We have to do more than just hand the ball. Once we hit stiffer competition, we have to do more (than just hand the ball off).”
Flemetis started the scoring with 4-yard touchdown run and he finished with 97 yards on 21 carries. Konigsberger, who was cited by Wonhoff for his passing and his open-field tackling on defense, finished 4-for-7 for 70 yards and two touchdowns.
Konigsberger also found Dylan Barrett for an 11-yard touchdown play in the third quarter.
Sam Scrabeck scored two fourth-quarter touchdowns — scoring runs from 59 and 13 yards out — and finished with 171 yards rushing on 28 carries for Naselle (0-2, 1-3).
Drew Pearson led the Valley defense with 11 tackles, seven of them solo, plus a fumble recovery and a sack. Flemetis added 10 tackles as well.
On Friday, Willapa Valley will stay home to take on Pe Ell in a non-league contest.
Pirates 46, Indians 6
SOUTH BEND — In a season of struggles for South Bend, the hosts scored on the game’s opening drive, but Adna took control of the game just before halftime in this non-league encounter at Millam Field on Friday.
The Indians (0-3) marched 73 yards on 10 plays in their first drive of the game. Dennis Johnson, who finished with 146 yards on 15 carries, scored the Tribe’s lone touchdown from 8 yards out for a 6-0 lead.
“It was our first lead in two years,” South Bend head coach Tom Sanchez said. “We were competitive in the first quarter, but then we couldn’t sustain anything. We imploded. We hung in there, then fumbled right before the half. That was turned into a three-score game and it went bad right after that. We did some good things and we’re making progress. Right now, it seems like we take two steps forward and three steps back at times.”
Mike Thompson led Adna (1-3) with three touchdowns overall.
Mitch Edwards and Marcus Overstake were cited by Sanchez for their work on defense.
On Friday, South Bend hits the road to take on Ocosta in a league matchup.
Loggers 46, Wolves 6
AUBURN — Keigan Gardiner returned the opening kickoff 70 yards for a touchdown to ignite Wishkah’s victory over Muckleshoot Tribal in a non-league game Friday in Auburn.
Gardiner also scored on runs of 12 and 30 yards and ran an interception back 33 yards for another TD.
Bo Barber scored twice for the Loggers (3-1), on a 14-yard run and a 49-yard fumble return.
Quarterback Jace Anderson tallied Wishkah’s other touchdown on a 2-yard run.
The Loggers led 32-0 at the half and reached the 40-point running-clock mercy rule standard with 7:36 remaining in the fourth quarter.
Wishkah coach Mike Mitchell said his club’s defensive play compensated for a few offensive shortcomings.
Dillon Mitchell intercepted two passes, while Barber, Jacob Gardiner and Robert Rodriguez recovered fumbles.
Coach Mitchell also cited the play of reserve running back Will Fultz in the second half.
The Loggers journey to King’s Way Christian on Friday.
Cougars 216, Bobcats 240
The weather cooperated, but Aberdeen head coach Harley Revel noted that the Bobcats’ swings didn’t during this Evergreen 2A golf match at Grays Harbor Country Club on Friday.
Capital’s Joel Christopher earned medalist honors with a 41. Eric Hagen led Aberdeen with a 42.
“Our swing isn’t there,” Revel said. “The kids are overthinking things, being too precise, too perfect. They’re not letting their swing go. I don’t think they trust their swing right now. We’re up and down. We’ll have a good match one day, then follow it up with a bad match the next.”
On Monday, Aberdeen (0-2, 1-2) returns to GHCC to host Black Hills.
Capital (216) — Joel Christopher 41, Gabriel Barr 42, Grant Chapin 41, Braden Cox 51, Micah Makao 46, Brian Wall 46.
Aberdeen (240) — Eric Hagen 42, Kegan Bridges 49, Jordan Weiberg 47, Justin Cox 55, Griffin Hood 47, Grant Larson 56.
JV — Capital 245, Aberdeen 287. Sean Dunn 52 for Aberdeen.
