Mountain View 44, Bend 7
At Bend High School’s Punk Hunnell Stadium, the Cougars rolled over their northeast Bend rivals in the teams’ second meeting of the season.
Luke Roberts piled up close to 300 yards on the ground for the Cougars, but coach Brian Crum said the other side of the line of scrimmage was the linchpin.
“The story of the night was defense,” Crum said in a text. “Stop after stop.”
Jacob Winchester returned a kickoff 82 yards for a touchdown in the fourth quarter for the Lava Bears.
In the teams’ first meeting, the Cougars won 33-21 over the Lava Bears, who finished the season 1-4.
“Great way to finish. 4-0 in Bend,” Crum said, alluding also to two wins over Summit of northwest Bend. “6-0 vs. who was put in front of us.”
