Pirates ground Spartans into Gubser Field turf

DAYTON -- Dayton got back to what it sought to do all season against Sheridan on Friday night -- running the football.

The Pirates racked up 355 yards on 50 carries, scoring seven touchdowns on the ground to defeat the Spartans, 49-0, for their first Class 3A West Valley League victory of the season at Gubser Field.

Tyler Clark paced Dayton with 18 carries for 171 yards and three touchdowns. Chance Bowlin had 80 yards and two scores, including a 46-yard touchdown run, and Chase Young (20 yards) and Tristan Fergus (1 yard) each had rushing touchdowns.

Dominique Card had 22 rushing yards for Sheridan and completed his only pass of the game to Miguel Diaz for 36 yards. Andrew Glynn added 21 yards on seven carries.

The Pirates (3-2, 1-2 WVL) host Willamina on Oct. 9 at 7 p.m. The Spartans (2-3, 0-3 WVL) are on a bye week; they play Horizon Christian on Oct. 17 at 7 p.m. in Tualatin.

Horizon Christian 50, Willamina 14

TUALATIN -- The Hawks scored the first 30 points of their Class 3A West Valley League game against the Bulldogs within the first six minutes and kept applying pressure in the victory.

Shane Thomas completed 11 of 18 passes for 117 yards for the Bulldogs (1-4, 0-2 WVL), throwing an eight-yard touchdown pass to Nathan Johnson but also throwing two interceptions. Keegan Davis produced Willamina's second score on a five-yard run; Davis, who left the Bulldogs' Oct. 26 loss to St. Paul with a leg injury, also had 11 tackles.

Willamina plays at Dayton on Oct. 9 at 7 p.m.

Stayton 52, Yamhill-Carlton 6

STAYTON -- The Tigers were throughly tames in a Friday night showdown against Class 4A Oregon West Conference foe Stayton, falling  to the Eagles in their second OWC loss of the year.

Yamhill-Carlton (1-4, 0-2 OWC) will host Cascade Oct. 9 at 7 p.m. in Yamhill.

Dufur 46, Perrydale 8

DUFUR -- It was a rough trip for the Perrydale Pirates. A long drive out to rural Dufur was even longer on the way back after a 46-8 beating at the hands of the Class 1A Rangers.

“We couldn’t stop them, and we couldn’t get anything going on offense,” Pirates head coach Chris Gubrud said. “They have a lot of speed and they’re very physical up front. They moved the line of scrimmage back on nearly every play and had us on our heels.”

Keenen Bailey ran in Class 2A Perrydale’s only touchdown of the contest, with Caleb McIntosh pushing in the two-point conversion. But when asked if anything went right for Perrydale, Gubrud’s assessment was blunt.

“No,” he said. “Not much went right.”

Perrydale (3-2) will travel to Arlington next Friday for a neutral-site game against the Elgin Huskies at 2 p.m.
