No. 3 Lake Oswego 35, No. 1 Tualatin 26 

Gabe Olvera ran for two touchdowns, Jack Layne ran for one score and passed for another, and the Lakers defeated the host Timberwolves in a game Lake Oswego never trailed but probably was never feeling too comfortable. 

The Lakers (6-0, 2-0 Three Rivers League) finally got some breathing room on Calvin Macy’s 15-yard touchdown run with about three minutes left, which extended their lead to nine points, 35-26. 

After Olvera’s first touchdown run midway through the second quarter, the Timberwolves (5-1, 1-1) made it 7-6 on Jackson Jones’ five-yard pass to Peter Burke.  

The Lakers then scored back-to-back touchdowns, on runs by Olvera and Layne, for a 20-6 lead. 

The Timberwolves responded with consecutive touchdowns of their own. Jones and Kellen Hale connected on a catch-and-run touchdown from near midfield midway through the third, and Malik Ross had a short touchdown run early in the fourth to pull the Timberwolves into a 20-20 tie. 

Layne and Justius Lowe connected on a 39-yard touchdown to put the Lakers back ahead, but again the Timberwolves answered, as on the next possession Jones and Burke connected on a 48-yard pass to make it 27-26 about 3½ minutes into the fourth quarter. 

The Lakers made a defensive stop with about five minutes left and turned that into Macy’s insurance touchdown. 

Macy finished with 101 yards on 15 carries. Olvera rushed for 94 yards. Layne was 15 of 25 for 285 yards. Dylan Layne caught six passes for 106 yards.

Jones passed for 227 yards and three touchdowns for Tualatin. Ross rushed for 127 yards. Jack Wagner led the defense with 15 tackles.

No. 2 Central Catholic 49, Barlow 21 

Riley Williams scored touchdowns on four of his five receptions to highlight the Rams’ offense in their home-field win over the Bruins of Gresham at Hillsboro Stadium. 

Williams’ five catches, 149 receiving yards and four touchdowns were season highs. He has scored six times in the past two games and has eight scoring catches this season. 

Cru Newman completed 8 of 9 passes for 163 yards and three touchdowns, helping Central Catholic take a 42-0 halftime lead. Emerson Dennis (4 of 5, 84 yards) passed for a season-high two touchdowns. 

Zachary Grisham caught the Rams’ other touchdown pass, giving him a three-game streak with a touchdown catch. Ellis Bynum, who missed the first two games with an injury, rushed for one touchdown, giving him six touchdowns in the four games he has played. Jacob Hardeman also had a rushing score for the Rams. 

Two of the Bruins’ scores were non-offensive touchdowns. Silas Bjugan blocked a punt and recovered the ball in the end zone, and Jake Fay returned a fumble 35 yards for another touchdown. 

Bruins quarterback Gavin Dow connected with Yamato Uptegrove on a 29-yard scoring pass. 

Central Catholic of Southeast Portland improved its record to 7-0 (5-0 Mt. Hood Conference), which includes a forfeit victory. On the field, the Rams have won 20 of their past 21 games. 

The Bruins’ record fell to 4-3 overall and 3-3 in the Mt. Hood Conference.

No. 4 West Linn 28, No. 7 Lakeridge 27 

Nick Sakys’ nine-yard touchdown pass to Gus Donnerberg followed by Gage Hurych’s extra-point kick with 22.6 seconds remaining rallied the visiting Lions to a victory over the Pacers in Lake Oswego.

The Lions’ winning drive started near midfield with about 80 seconds left. At one point, the Pacers had the Lions in a third-and-17 situation, but Sakys found Donnerberg, who high-pointed the ball for a first down. 

Sakys’ scoring pass to Donnerberg ended a run of 13 points by Lakeridge. The Pacers (5-1, 1-1 Three Rivers League) made the score 21-21 on a touchdown connection between Ryan Oliver and Joey Olsen midway through the third quarter, and the second of two field goals by Keaton Emmett pushed the Pacers to a 27-21 lead midway through the fourth before the Lions (5-1, 1-1) drove for the winning points. 

West Linn’s kickoff after the go-ahead score pinned the Pacers in their territory, and Jake Holmes forced a fumble that the Lions recovered to cement the win. 

The Lions struck first, on a short touchdown run by Earl Ingle from the quarterback position. Jake Reichle pulled the Pacers even on a scoring run from inside the 5, and Dallas Kuenzi returned an interception (his fourth interception of the season) 74 yards for a score that gave the Pacers a 14-7 lead early in the second quarter. 

A 19-yard touchdown run by the Lions’ Koffi Kouame made the score 14-14, and the Lions got another score for a 21-14 lead before halftime. 

Oliver finished with 205 passing yards, and Olsen had three catches for 162 yards. Zachary Larson also had an interception. 

Lions coach Chris Miller singled out his offensive line for its play in allowing the team to run the ball. 

No. 5 Clackamas 48, Grant 14

Ben Moffett’s touchdown catch on the final play of the first half lifted the Cavaliers to a 14-7 lead, and Clackamas used a 27-point third quarter to pull away from the host Generals (3-3) at Franklin High School in Southeast Portland. 

Moffett finished with two touchdown catches, as did K.J. Johnson-Gibson. Miles Williams also had a touchdown catch as Blake Baker threw a season-high five scoring passes for the Cavaliers (7-0). Luke Ash ran for two touchdowns, giving him multiple touchdown runs in every game this season (12 total).  

The Generals’ Kellen Segel was 21 of 37 for 235 yards with a touchdown pass to Marshune Waters. Segel also ran for a touchdown for the Generals, who played on an unusually short turnaround after also playing Saturday. 

Colin O’Rourke had an interception — the first of the season thrown by Baker — and the Generals also forced and recovered a fumble. 

The Cavaliers’ defense featured interceptions by Williams and Sullivan McDaniel and sacks by Noah Preuitt (his fifth in five games) and Kaden Ludwick.  

The Generals of Northeast Portland have lost to three teams — Clackamas, Sheldon of Eugene and Class 5A Silverton — that have a combined two losses, with those teams’ losses coming to the No. 1- and No. 3-ranked teams in the SBLive Class 6A media poll

Mountainside 27, No. 6 Sunset 26

Brian Mannion scored on a one-yard run in overtime, and the Mavericks defeated the host Apollos in a Metro League game in northwest Portland.

After Mannion’s go-ahead score, Grady Newsom passed 11 yards to Hayden Hurley for a touchdown, but the Apollos missed the extra-point kick.

After a scoreless first half, the Apollos (4-2, 2-1) scored on their first drive of the third quarter on a 10-yard pass from Newsom to Aiden Timbo. Sam Harker’s 23-yard field goal pushed the Apollos’ lead to 10-0.

Mannion passed to Kadin Kingsbury at the end of the third quarter to make it 10-7, and the Mavericks (3-3, 2-1) of Beaverton went ahead 14-10 on an eight-yard pass from Mannion to Bowen Stinson.

Caleb Kim’s 39-yard run three plays later made it 17-14 for the Apollos. The Mavericks scored with 35 seconds left in the fourth quarter on a pass from Mannion to Joe Pribula. The Apollos blocked the extra-point kick, keeping the score 20-17, and they drove to set up Harker with a tying 35-yard field goal with no time left.

The game featured strong quarterback play from both teams. Mannion was 18 of 28 for 221 yards and three touchdowns in addition to the rushing touchdown in overtime. Newsom was 23 of 29 for 296 yards and two touchdowns.

Mountainside got 85 yards on 19 carries from Caleb Paler. Quinn O’Connor made eight catches for 88 yards.

Kim finished with 20 carries for 106 yards for Sunset. Hurley had seven catches for 102 yards, and Timbo had seven for 97.

No. 8 Jesuit 49, Beaverton 13 

Lonnie Burt rushed for three touchdowns on nine carries, Jacob Hutchinson passed for two touchdowns, and the Crusaders handled the visiting Beavers at Cronin Field in Southwest Portland in a Metro League game between schools separated by 2½ miles along state Route 10. 

Burt, who entered the game with 29 yards rushing this season, gained 90 yards. Michael Rincon carried 18 times for 192 yards as the Crusaders (5-1, 3-0) were never threatened. 

Tyree Blake caught one of Hutchinson’s touchdown passes, and he returned an interception 20 yards for another touchdown — his second interception-return touchdown of the season. Hutchinson connected with Nick Ferrer on a 69-yard catch-and-run play for his other touchdown pass. 

Hunter Borter passed to Cristian Gonzalez and Trevon Hamilton for touchdowns for the Beavers (2-4, 2-2).

No. 9 Westview 35, Southridge 0 

The Wildcats led 20-0 before their offense touched the ball in the Metro League victory over the host Skyhawks (0-6, 0-2) in Beaverton. 

Darrius Clemons returned the opening kickoff for a touchdown, and after the Wildcats (5-1, 3-1) forced a punt, Clemons returned it for another touchdown. 

The Skyhawks’ next possession ended when Drew Bennett intercepted a pass and returned it for a third non-offensive touchdown and a 20-0 lead. 

The Wildcats’ first three touchdowns all came on plays of at least 70 yards. 

Jordan Fisher had 17 carries for 150 yards for the Wildcats.

Clemons scored for a third time, on a one-yard pass from Sam Leavitt, in the second quarter, and Leavitt connected with Kaden Huppin on a five-yard score in the third quarter.

No. 10 Roseburg 38, North Medford 20 

Roseburg bolted to a 28-0 lead but had to fend off the visiting Black Tornado in the fourth quarter on the way to the program’s first 6-0 start since 2010. 

After Roseburg went up by 28 at Finlay Field, the Black Tornado (3-2, 0-1 Southwest Conference) closed to 28-20 on Mason Warren’s three-yard run with 9:26 left in the fourth quarter.  

Logan Klopfenstein returned the kickoff 86 yards for a touchdown to push Roseburg to a 35-20 lead. On their next possession, the Black Tornado reached the Roseburg 16 before turning the ball over on downs. 

The Black Tornado’s next possession ended when Roseburg’s Colton Marsters intercepted a pass and returned it 60 yards to the North Medford 10. 

After Dominic Tatone started the scoring for Roseburg (6-0, 1-0) with a one-yard run, Marsters scored the team’s next three touchdowns. 

Marsters had his third consecutive game with multiple touchdowns and has 12 in his past four games. 

The kickoff-return touchdown was the second in the past two games for Klopfenstein. 

West Salem 28, Summit 15

Johnny Withers ran for two touchdowns, quarterback Brooks Ferguson ran for another, and the host Titans emerged from their home game against the Storm of northwest Bend as the only team with an undefeated Mountain Valley Conference record. 

After Withers’ first scoring run, the Storm (4-2, 3-1) tied it on an 81-yard run by Ryan Powell. 

Ferguson’s six-yard run seven minutes before halftime put the Titans (5-1, 3-0) ahead 14-7. They stretched the lead to 21-9 after three quarters.

Sherwood 48, McMinnville 14

Austin Rapp caught a touchdown pass and ran for another score, but the Grizzlies (3-3, 1-1 Pacific Conference) fell behind 27-0 and couldn’t catch the Bowmen, who got four touchdown passes from Bjorn Bergstrom to Cody Hall. 

Bergstrom and Hall, who combined for two touchdown passes last week, had scoring connections of 23, 32, 30 and 34 yards — all in the first half — as the Bowmen (1-4, 2-0) won their second in a row. 

Rapp caught a touchdown pass from Ky Hoskinson to make the score 27-7 in the second quarter, and he had a one-yard run in the fourth quarter to close the scoring. Rapp carried 25 times for 136 yards, his second consecutive 100-yard game. 

Bergstrom was 11 of 13 for 166 yards. Hall, who had 13 catches last week, had eight Thursday and has totaled 30 in his past three games. 

Liberty 50, Newberg 49 

Hiro Diamond passed to Mike Campos for a touchdown on the final play and then ran in the two-point conversion to carry the Falcons of Hillsboro to the win over the host Tigers, who suffered another last-minute loss in a game that featured three touchdowns in the final 2½ minutes. 

On the Falcons’ winning drive, they converted a fourth-and-one play and took their final snap from near the Tigers’ 10-yard line with three seconds left. Diamond scrambled and found Campos for the touchdown, drawing the Falcons within 49-48 and setting up the winning conversion run. 

Diamond accumulated 469 yards of total offense and factored in seven touchdowns (four passing, three rushing). Friday’s comeback was at least the third last-minute game-winning drive of his career, following similar exploits in an OSAA playoff game against Grant in his sophomore season and in a Pacific Conference victory against fellow Hillsboro school Century in the spring season. 

The Tigers (0-6, 0-2 Pacific Conference) took a 49-42 lead with 1:05 left on a halfback pass from Charlie Evans to Sam Murphy. That touchdown followed a three-and-out defensive stand that the Tigers mounted after they tied the score, 42-42, with about 2½ minutes to play. 

Murphy finished with two touchdown catches and a scoring run, and Evans added a touchdown run for the Tigers. 

Five of the Tigers’ six losses are by six points or fewer. One of the losses (McNary) was in overtime, and one (Sherwood, last week) came in a game in which the score was tied with 30 seconds remaining. 

On Friday, the Tigers led 21-0, but the advantage dwindled and disappeared as the Falcons (4-2, 2-0) scored on all but one of their second-half possessions. 

Diamond completed 15 of 26 passes for 242 yards with the four touchdowns and no interceptions. He carried the ball 25 times for 227 yards. 

Ethan Jones, Keenan Frye, Tanner Steinbach and Campos caught Diamond’s touchdown passes. 

Tigard 45, Oregon City 36 

Konner Grant (16 carries, 117 yards) rushed for three touchdowns, Luke Davis (nine carries, 114 yards) ran for two, and the Tigers pulled away from a 14-14 first-quarter tie to defeat the visiting Pioneers at Douglass Memorial Field. 

After taking a 31-14 halftime lead, the Tigers (3-3, 1-1 Three Rivers League) went up by 24 points on Grant’s final touchdown run. Friday’s game was the second three-touchdown game of the season for Grant. 

Quarterback Camdyn Stiegeler ran for two touchdowns for the Pioneers (2-4, 0-2). James Carter (rushing) and Joey Shaw (receiving) also factored into the scoring. 

Century 43, Glencoe 24

Tyler Mahlman passed for 387 yards and five touchdowns, Cayden Palmeri made a game-high nine tackles and intercepted two passes on his birthday, and the Jaguars (1-5, 1-1 Pacific Conference) cruised to victory against the host Crimson Tide (3-3, 0-2) in a matchup of Hillsboro teams at Hare Field.

Century’s Kyle Hamnes had four catches for 212 yards and two scores. Jalen Ellis also had two touchdown catches, and Jake Nicholson had one.

Royce Fasel rushed for 280 yards and four touchdowns for Glencoe. Gabe Chimal led the Crimson Tide defense with eight tackles, including three for loss.

Sandy 48, Gresham 35 

Payton Giusto made an interception in the second half that ignited the shorthanded Pioneers (5-1, 4-1 Mt. Hood Conference), Ethan Lucore returned a kickoff for a touchdown, and Garrett Willenberg ran for two touchdowns in Sandy’s win over the host Gophers (1-5, 1-5). 

Sandy was missing 10 varsity players, most of them for reasons related to COVID-19. 

Pioneers players combined to rush for more than 300 yards, and Teague Clemmer (5 of 14, two interceptions) added about 150 yards passing in addition to running for one of Sandy’s touchdowns. 

Zack Kaufman passed for three touchdowns and ran for another for Gresham. Tucker Snow led the defense with eight tackles.

Nelson 28, Reynolds 7 

Max Kirsch and Kyle Pahlke caught two touchdown passes apiece from Avirey Durdahl, and the Hawks’ defense held the visiting Raiders (0-6, 0-5 Mt. Hood Conference) of Troutdale scoreless. 

Sam Lewis, Dylan Barton and Alex Leontyuk made interceptions for the Hawks (2-4, 2-4 Mt. Hood) of Happy Valley, who allowed a touchdown to the Raiders on a 90-yard interception return by sophomore Jordan Samountry.

The Hawks, a first-year team representing a newly opened school in the North Clackamas School District, have won two games in a row and allowed a total of 19 points in those wins. 

Durdahl, a 6-foot freshman, has passed for seven touchdowns in the past two games. 

Lincoln 39, Franklin 13

The Cardinals got four takeaways, totaled 324 rushing yards and pulled away from a 13-13 halftime score to defeat the visiting Lightning of Southeast Portland. 

Two touchdown passes from Abraham Barrow to Dylan Iwanaga staked the Cardinals (2-4, 1-2 Portland Interscholastic League) to a 13-0 lead in the second quarter of the game at Cleveland High School in Southeast Portland. 

The Lightning (0-6, 0-3) tied the score before halftime on touchdown runs by Jemall Brumfield and quarterback Zander Garner. 

Tommy Pempel’s two-yard run broke the tie in the third quarter. Brady Kopetz also had a short touchdown run in the third, and he and Emmett Togni broke off scoring runs of 50-plus yards in the fourth. 

Kopetz finished with 188 yards on 20 carries, and Togni added 95 on nine carries. 

Graham Joshi recovered two Lightning fumbles. He, Kopetz and Gus Togni registered sacks for the Cardinals’ defense. 

Roosevelt 28, Jefferson 22 

Jackson Flatner took a short pass in the flat and darted and cut around would-be tacklers for a 30-yard go-ahead touchdown with less than two minutes left to lift the Roughriders to the victory over the host Democrats in a matchup of North Portland teams. 

Flatner’s touchdown came after the Roughriders (5-1, 3-0 Portland Interscholastic League) were assessed back-to-back holding penalties and quashed the Democrats’ bid to win after rallying from a 22-6 hole. 

Jefferson’s comeback started with a short touchdown run up the middle by Jeray Mott Jr. that made it 22-14 about five minutes into the fourth quarter.  

The Democrats (3-3, 3-1 PIL) quickly regained possession, leading to another touchdown by Mott Jr. Dondrae Fair lateraled to Mott Jr. just before the quarterback was tackled, and Mott Jr. bulled through defenders near the goal line for the touchdown. Fair’s conversion pass to Jeremiah Matthews made the score 22-22 with about three minutes left. 

Zaya Laguardia’s return of the ensuing kickoff set up the Roughriders with strong field position before the holding penalties that preceded Flatner’s score. 

Roosevelt’s Kini Eteaki was instrumental against the Democrats’ inside running game, and Dexter Foster had multiple tackles for loss on outside runs. 

The Democrats trailed 15-0 before D’Marion Gates hit Anthony Lamberth with a halfback pass for a touchdown late in the second quarter. 

Fair ran for a touchdown and exceeded 100 yards on the ground. The Democrats’ Trejon Williams made two interceptions. 

The Roughriders’ Imarion Kelly passed for two touchdowns and ran for another. Lindell Betts caught Kelly’s other touchdown pass (for the 22-6 lead), and Alain Yao rushed for a first-half touchdown.

McNary 21, South Salem 14 

Ben Allen returned an interception in the fourth quarter to break a 7-7 tie, Zane Aicher had a 34-yard touchdown run for an insurance score, and the Celtics of Keizer got the road win over the Saxons. 

Allen’s interception was one of five takeaways for the Celtics (5-1, 2-1 Mountain Valley Conference).  

Daschel Smith (19 of 34, 172 yards) ran for one touchdown and passed to Esteban Mendez for another for the Saxons (3-3, 1-3). 

Gunner Smedema played quarterback for the Celtics in place of usual starter Tyler Copeland, who reportedly suffered an ankle injury last week. 

South Medford 31, Grants Pass 19 

Carson Joe ran for three touchdowns and quarterback Deacon Edgar had a scoring run to lead the Panthers over the Cavemen on South Medford’s homecoming night at Spiegelberg Stadium. 

Andrew Walker had a school-record 95-yard interception return for a touchdown for South Medford (1-5, 1-1 Southwest Conference), eclipsing the mark of 91 yards set in 1986 by Brian Veal. 

Trevor Reeves carried 23 times for 111 yards and two touchdowns for the Cavemen (1-5, 0-2), surpassing his season highs in all three categories. Grants Pass quarterback Jace Blanchard completed 24 of 38 passes for 200 yards and a touchdown to Josh Hart (five receptions, 82 yards).  

Reeves’ first touchdown staked the Cavemen to a 7-6 lead midway through the second quarter before the Panthers scored 14 consecutive points to take control. 

Edgar tallied 176 yards of total offense. Brycen Guches was the Panthers’ top receiver, with five catches for 72 yards, and Colton Samis highlighted the special teams with a 45-yard punt return. 

Sheldon 51, David Douglas 2 

Quarterback Brock Thomas passed for four scores and ran for two, leading the Irish (5-1) of Eugene to the home win over the Scots (3-3) of Southeast Portland. 

The Scots’ Caleb Clardy returned an interception 42 yards in the first quarter, which ended with the Irish leading 14-0. Clardy, who entered the week tied for second in Class 6A in forced fumbles, registered his first interception of the season. 

For the Irish, Thomas’ first touchdown pass was a 40-yard connection with Keegan Line. Grafton Robinson had a 55-yard touchdown reception and two touchdown runs, and Luke Leighton also was on the receiving end of one of Thomas’ scoring passes. 

Sam Poole was 7 for 7 on point-after kicks, and Isaac Peters blocked a punt for a safety. 

Mountain View 63, Aloha 0 

Isaac Gill had two sacks and intercepted a pass to highlight the Cougars’ defense in the win over the Warriors (0-6) at Jack Harris Stadium in northeast Bend. 

The Cougars (3-3) posted their first shutout since a 37-0 win over Summit of northwest Bend on Oct. 4, 2019, and they had their highest point total since a 67-19 victory over Southridge of Beaverton one week later. 

Sayre Williamson totaled 222 yards on the ground and wound up in the end zone on four of his 11 carries. Jakoby Moss completed 7 of 13 passes for 110 yards and two touchdowns. 

Jordan Kennedy had two catches, both for touchdowns. 

Max Paskewich and Ben Yundt also rushed for touchdowns.

CLASS 5A

No. 1 Thurston 42, Churchill 32 

The Lancers of west Eugene trailed 14-0, pulled within 21-19 but lost touch after that against the visiting Colts of Springfield, who got two rushing touchdowns and a receiving touchdown from Brycen Indell. 

The Colts’ Gavin Knights ran for 190 yards and two touchdowns, and Grayson Starck had three catches for 51 yards. 

Lancers quarterback Chace Pence passed for 226 yards and three touchdowns, including 74-yard scoring connections with Danny Womack and Henry Pence (who also scored on a 10-yard pass). 

Riley Van Camp returned a kickoff 95 yards for a touchdown that brought the Lancers within eight, 21-13, late in the first quarter, and Austin Mills made it 21-19 with a two-yard run. From there, the Colts stretched their lead, building a 16-point advantage at 42-26 on Indell’s final touchdown, with 3:06 left in the fourth. 

Thurston allowed nine yards rushing and was led by Vaun Halstead with seven solo tackles, two assists, one sack and 4.5 tackles for loss. Kellen Humphries intercepted two passes. 

Van Camp finished with 348 return yards, and Womack helped on defense with a forced fumble and a pass defended. 

No. 2 Silverton 47, Central 7 

Jordan McCarty factored in all seven of the Foxes’ touchdowns, passing for five and running for two, in the road win over the Panthers (1-5, 0-4 Mid-Willamette Conference) of Independence. 

Austin Ratliff had seven catches for 185 yards and two touchdowns, and Vandon Fessler had six receptions for 141 yards and three scores for the Foxes (5-1, 4-0). 

Ratliff set a season high in receiving yards and matched his season high in touchdown catches. For Fessler, it was his fourth game this season with at least 140 yards receiving and his second game with at least two touchdown catches. 

McCarty ran for scores of 69 and five yards. His five touchdown passes broke his career high of three (set in 2019 and matched in his junior season), and his two touchdown runs matches his career high. His seven total touchdowns are a career high.

No. 3 Wilsonville 54, Forest Grove 0

Ryder McElroy returned a fumble 10 yards for a touchdown — one of seven Wildcats players to score a touchdown — as part of a strong Wilsonville defense in the victory over the host Vikings (3-3, 1-3 Northwest Oregon Conference West). 

The Wildcats (6-0, 4-0) posted their first shutout in nearly two years — a 52-0 win over St. Helens on Oct. 18, 2019. Wilsonville led by 21 after the first quarter and by 47 at halftime on the way to its third consecutive 50-point game. 

Jay Rummell-West rushed for two touchdowns, and Jacob Ogden, Dylan Nance and quarterback Chase Hix ran for one each. 

Hix completed all but two of his pass attempts and made touchdown throws to Kellen Hartford and Rochne Beecham.  

No. 4 West Albany 21, Lebanon 7 

Juan Zaragoza was 3 for 3 on field goal attempts, and the Bulldogs defeated visiting Lebanon in a Mid-Willamette Conference game. 

Andreus Smith’s 22-yard pass to Brayden Currey pushed Lebanon (2-4, 2-2 Mid-Willamette) to a 7-3 lead late in the second quarter.

Cougars quarterback Mikey Gibson completed 3 of 5 passes, two of them going for touchdowns, for 144 yards. Gibson has thrown for at least two touchdowns in the past five games. 

Canby coach Jimmy Joyce cited the play of Jacob Strand, Braden Snoderly and others as key to the team’s defense. The Cougars haven’t allowed more than 20 points in a game this season and have held their past four opponents to fewer than 14 points each.

Ryles Buckley scored three touchdowns — rushing, receiving and on an interception return — as part of the Eagles’ victory over the Riverhawks at Sid White Field in The Dalles. 

Shaw Burns opened the scoring with an 89-yard touchdown run three minutes in, the first of his two touchdowns runs. Trenton Hughes ran for one touchdown and threw two touchdown passes, to Buckley and to Mason Spellecy. Hughes was 8 of 12 for 144 yards.

No. 9 Scappoose 47, McKay 13 

Luke McNabb passed for three touchdowns and ran for three to power Scappoose to the win over the host Royal Scots in Salem. 

Johnny Clothier caught two of McNabb’s touchdown passes, and Ben Rintoul was on the receiving end of the other. Malcolm Harrison led Scappoose (4-2, 3-1 Northwest Oregon Conference East) in receptions and receiving yards, and Ashtin Kauffman made an impact in the running game. 

Royal Scots sophomore quarterback Kyrin Fuimaono passed for about 275 yards, including a touchdown to Justice Anthony. Chansse Lee, who entered averaging 82 receiving yards per game, racked up more than 100 as the Royal Scots (2-4, 1-3) were able to move the ball between the 20s but didn’t finish well when near the goal line. 

Scappoose’s Wyatt Anicker made an interception for a defense led by Austin Verbout (who had a fumble recovery) and Trey Dieringer (who rushed for a touchdown).
