Rain and Touchdowns Pour on Barlow in Oregon City

The rain never let up at Pioneer Stadium in Oregon City and neither did the flow of touchdowns against Barlow by Oregon City High School in a lopsided 65-7 Mt. Hood Conference win for the Pioneers over the Bruins.  Under driving rain, the Pioneers wracked up a total of 584 yards which included big plays for touchdowns from Trevon Bradford (64 and 40 yards), Dequahn Dennis-Lee (88 yards), Sam Maughan (45 yards) and Riley Rexine (56 and 31 yards).  Running backs Danny Tkach and Conner Mitchell added a touchdown each to cap out the scoring.  With the scoreboard reading 52-7 at halftime, the Bruins were aided by a running clock to bring a miserable game to an end on a night of miserable weather.

Oregon City Drops Heart-breaker to Central Catholic

After four quarters of play the Oregon City Pioneers and the Central Catholic Rams were deadlocked at 14-14.  In the two overtime periods each team scored touchdowns on improbable fourth down passes to the endzone.  In the second overtime, the situation for the Pioneers looked hopeless with lost yardage plays setting them back on the 33 yard line on fourth down and having to make it into the endzone sitting fourth-and-thirty-three.  Oregon City quarterback Dequahn Dennis-Lee threw a Hail Mary pass and somehow wide receiver Trevon Bradford pulled it down under heavy coverage for the touchdown.  Needing only an extra point fieldgoal to tie the game and force a third overtime, the Pioneers bobbled the snap and kicker Jordon Phillips never got a chance to kick as the Rams smothered the loose ball to end the game with at 21-20 victory at Oregon City Pioneer Stadium.

Oregon City vs West Linn Football 2015

Just a few short weeks after the Oregon City alumni claimed rivalry honors over West Linn in the annual "Battle for the Bridge" football game at Lions' home field with a 48-28 victory, the 2015 OSAA 6A pre-season game between the two schools kicked off at Pioneer Stadium in Oregon City.  The West Linn Varsity squad took revenge on behalf of their alumni as their high octane passing game was too much for the Oregon City defense with the Lions cruising to a 40-28 win.

Battle for the Bridge 2015

In 2011 West Linn High School alum Ian Giammanco and Trent Tribou come up with an idea to money for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation as Giammanco's young daughter has CF.  The unique fundraising event was to have alumni of Oregon City and West Linn High Schools play a football game in the spirit of "The Battle for the Bridge," an annual match-up between the two neighboring schools that is themed the longest running rivalry game west of the Mississippi.  Participating players are primarily in the 20's and 30's, but there are some aging souls in the 40's giving all they have in honor of their school, community and giving to support the fight against CF.  This year's game was held at West Linn High School with the Oregon City Pioneers scored a 48-28 victory over the Lions but the true winner was the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation with over $25,000 raised this year and over $100,000 raised over the five year history of the game.
