Camas 85 Battle Ground 38

Nov 2, 2013

Battle Ground finished the 2013 season with a gritty effort versus the top ranked team in the state. The Tigers offense exploded on very talented Camas for 38 points, something that hasn’t been accomplished in years, however, the #1 Papermakers offense was just about perfect handing the Tigers a 85-38 loss.  The loss drops the Tigers overall record to 4-5 on the season and 2-3 in 4A Greater St. Helens League play.

A few facts about the Tigers 38 points scored on Camas Friday night.  1) Camas had given up a combined 33 points in their 4 previous league games 2) Battle Ground scored 32 first half points, Camas had given up a combined 9 first half points in 4 league games this season. 3) The last team from Clark County to score more than 38 points on Camas in a game was back in week 1 of the 2008 season when then 3A Camas defeated 4A Heritage 47-44 at Doc Harris Stadium 4) The last time a league opponent of Camas scored more than 38 points on the Papermakers was way back in week 6 of 2002 when then fellow 3A GSHL opponent Columbia River defeated the Papermakers 65-28, also at Doc Harris Stadium.

We just wanted to point out some of the amazing things the Tigers accomplished Friday night, even when giving up 85 points.

Here is the game recap from The Columbian.

Camas turns on the jets for 85-38 win at Battle Ground

BATTLE GROUND — Camas completed an undefeated regular season with another runaway win, but not without tasting some playoff intensity.

Battle Ground quarterback Colston Vukanovich threw six touchdown passes, and the Tigers hung with the Papermakers into the third quarter before Camas pulled away for an 85-38 win at District Stadium on Friday.

Nate Beasley rushed for five touchdowns, and Zach Eagle scored three touchdowns for Camas. Beasley scored three of his in the third quarter, including two in the first two minutes after halftime on drives of 49 and 46 yards that were exclusively Beasley running plays.

Those drives turned a 49-32 halftime lead into a more comfortable 63-32 edge for the Papermakers.

It was a good playoff preview, Beasley said.

“The first half was definitely a playoff environment,” Beasley said. “Our starters played through the third quarter, and that was kind of out of the ordinary.”

Vukanovich threw three touchdowns apiece to Parker Randle and Colby Cahoon, the shortest of those covering 11 yards. Battle Ground finished with more than 500 yards of offense in a game that was shortened by a running clock after Camas went ahead by 40 late in the third quarter.

“That’s as fine of a quarterback performance as I’ve seen a Clark County kid have in 30 years of coaching,” Camas coach Jon Eagle said of Vukanovich’s play. “And, their receivers also made some tremendous plays and catches.”
