No. 6 Banks 27, Milwaukie 0
Jamar Flippen ran for touchdowns of one and 57 yards and returned a punt 52 yards for Banks’ final score in the victory over the visiting Mustangs (3-5, 1-3 Cowapa League).
Flippen finished with 133 yards rushing for Banks (7-1, 4-0).
Daevon Vereen had 3½ sacks and forced a fumble as Banks held the Mustangs to minus-6 yards rushing. Banks posted its second shutout in succession and its fourth of the season.
After Flippen’s two rushing touchdowns, Banks took a 20-0 lead on Cooper Gobel’s short touchdown pass to Charlie White with about four minutes left in the third quarter.
The Mustangs threatened to score with a drive that reached the Banks 3-yard line two minutes before halftime. A penalty and two sacks pushed them back to the 35-yard line, and the drive ended with a turnover on downs.
