Wilson 20, Madison 6: Cole Thomas ran for a touchdown and caught a scoring pass from Parker Feld-Gore to send the Trojans (1-1) to a 14-6 halftime lead in the win over the visiting Senators of Northeast Portland.
Jayden Brannan ran for a 26-yard touchdown in the fourth quarter and totaled more than 120 rushing yards for the Trojans of Southwest Portland.
Madison’s key contributors included running back/defensive back Will Cabello, who made a couple of circus catches and forced a fumble. Linebackers Leo Johnson and Tevita Tauhelangi made a number of key tackles, as did cornerback Moses Farmer, who also had a key red zone interception.
Wilson coach Keith Bennett, who posted his first win at his current position, also lauded his defense. Rolin Griffiths forced several fumbles and turned in several negative-yardage plays on defense. Thomas and Logan Leybold also were instrumental in bottling up the Madison offense, Bennett said.
