Gresham 17, Parkrose 6: Zack Kaufman passed for two touchdowns, Brody Booze intercepted two passes, and the visiting Gophers (1-2) downed the Class 5A Broncos (0-3) of Northeast Portland.
Dawson Coder also had an interception for a Gophers defense that allowed 65 yards of total offense. Gresham’s Caden Brewington and Austin Stalwick each had a fumble recovery.
Parkrose took a 6-0 lead on Dee Cunningham’s scoring run before Lucas Simmons caught Kaufman’s first touchdown pass, a nine-yard connection. Ethan Evans caught Kaufman’s other touchdown throw on a 14-yard play in the second quarter that made the score 17-6.
Parkrose assistant Spencer Mayhew identified several players who made strong contributions, including Cunningham with his running and Ty Delgado on both sides of the line, especially with some big stops on defense. Keviante Hill contributed in all three phases of the game, and Michael Scott made an impact with abundant tackles.
