Jayce Knapp has 5 TD passes, leads Wilsonville over Canby in matchup of top 5A teams

No. 1 Wilsonville 37, No. 4 Canby 14 

Jayce Knapp’s five touchdown passes highlighted the offense and Jackson Dean led the defense in tackles for the Wildcats (5-0) in the victory over the visiting Cougars (3-2). 

Mikey Gibson, the Cougars’ usual starting quarterback, had limited playing time after suffering an injury last week. Running back Tyler Mead, who scored six touchdowns last week, was lost to injury late in the first half, further depleting an offense that was already without Air Force-bound Chance Miller. 

Wildcats coach Adam Guenther said his defense was dialed in, praising linebacker Chad Overholt, defensive backs Colby Guenther and Shane Tacla and lineman Jake Moore.  

Payton Dart and Josh McKenzie had two touchdown catches, and Jack Kimball had one scoring catch to complement a running game spearheaded by the hard running of Lucas Graves at tailback.
