Earl Ingle makes big play after big play after big play, powers No. 4 West Linn to victory against Tigard

No. 4 West Linn 42, Tigard 21 

Junior Earl Ingle turned in huge plays on three successive snaps to help the Lions pull away from the Tigers (3-4, 1-2) in a Three Rivers League game in West Linn. 

After the Lions (6-1, 2-1) took a 21-14 lead to halftime, Ingle made an interception on the Tigers’ first possession of the third quarter and returned it for a touchdown. On the next snap, Ingle made another interception, and on the next snap, he connected with Barret Brundage on a 50-yard score for a 35-14 lead. 

Ingle made his third interception of the game midway through the fourth quarter, and he finished the Lions’ scoring with a touchdown pass of nearly 50 yards to Mark Hamper. 

Ingle passed for three touchdowns — one as a running back and two as a quarterback.

AJ Perez returned an interception 99 yards for a score that, followed by a two-point conversion, pulled Tigard within 21-14. 

Henry Masters scored on a touchdown pass, and Konner Grant ran for a score to account for the Tigers’ other points. 

Zeke Viuhkola made an interception — one of six by the Lions — less than a minute before halftime to protect West Linn’s 21-14 lead.
