No. 5 Marshfield 56, Ontario 8: Junior quarterback Dom Montiel passed for four touchdowns and ran for another, pacing the host Pirates of Coos Bay in the win over the Tigers (1-2) at Crook County High School in Prineville.
Montiel was 12 of 24 for 278 yards with no interceptions. Saturday’s game was the second in a row in which he threw for four touchdowns.
The Pirates (3-0) gained 191 yards on the ground, led by Noah Niblett (six carries, 94 yards) and Ezra Waterman (nine carries, 54 yards, one touchdown). Miguel Velazquez also had a rushing touchdown.
DJ Daugherty caught two touchdown passes, and Pierce Davidson and Maddux Mateski caught the other two. Niblett led the team in receiving yards (91) and catches (five).
Ontario coach Greg Simmons said the Pirates earned full marks for their performance.
“Marshfield’s solid all the way around, very athletic,” Simmons said in a text message. “Just got outmatched, but the kids never stopped competing.”
