No. 5 Canby 33, No. 9 Scappoose 21
The Cougars led 27-0 at halftime and held on against Scappoose’s rally in the Northwest Oregon Conference West game at Scappoose.
Tyler Konold rushed for three touchdowns and about 225 yards for the Cougars (6-1, 5-0). Quarterback Mikey Gibson and Bryce Oliver also ran for scores.
With Scappoose down 27-0, Luke McNabb ran down a Cougars ball carrier and stripped the ball as he approached the end zone, leading to a recovery by teammate Quorey Bays. On the next play, McNabb ran 95 yards for a touchdown.
DeAngelo Macedo-Becker, who missed the first six games with injury, rushed for two touchdowns for Scappoose (4-3, 3-2).
“They made some big plays early in the third but I’m really proud about how our kids responded,” Cougars coach Jimmy Joyce said in a text.
Scappoose coach Sean McNabb credited Austin Verbout, Trey Derringer, Luke Frugia and Wyatt Anicker for leading the team’s defense, while cornerbacks Bays and Johnny Clothier played well in pass coverage. On defense, McNabb made an interception, his third of the season.
Megan Earl kicked all three of Scappoose’s point-after kicks. Malcolm Harrison was Scappoose’s top receiver, and Sean McNabb said Owen Bogert and Elijah Ritter played well on the offensive line.
