Clackamas Extents Winning Streak with 38-22 Win Over Centennial

The Clackamas Cavaliers rolled to a 38-22 Three Rivers Conference victory over Centennial to keep their 2015 record unblemished at 5-0 (3-0 in conference).  Centennial started their season with more promise in many years with three straight high-scoring wins, however the Eagles traveled to Cavalier Stadium after a 42-6 loss to Central Catholic.  Centennial got on the board first with a 13 yard touchdown run midway through the first quarter from quarterback Trevor Thornton.  Clackamas scored the next four touchdown, added a Drew Dayton fieldgoal and one more touchdown off a 25 yard pass reception by Alex Hern with 1:39 left in the third quarter.  Centennial attempted to claw its way back into the game with two rushing touchdowns of 50 and 35 yards by Shawn King, but the Cavaliers' defense held strong to close out the game securing the win.

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.

The LO/Lakeridge Civil War on New Turf

When Lakeridge High School in Lake Oswego, Oregon was built in 1971 a football stadium was not included in the construction plans.  One reason for this was the school's very close proximity to an established neighborhood who was not thrilled at the idea of screaming crowds, bands playing, PA announcers and traffic on Friday nights.  For 37 years the Pacers played their "home" games on the field of cross-town rival Lake Oswego High School.  Even though the LO High School stadium was call District Stadium in an attempt to provide some degree of neutrality to the venue, being located on the LOHS campus, it was definitely not "home" to the Pacers.

Everything has changed this year.  After long negotiations with the city and the local neighborhood association, Lakeridge was allowed to start holding a limited number of home games on their campus last year.  The stadium seating is very limited so last year's Civil War was played at District Stadium in order to give some time to understand the logistics of holding the big Lake Oswego derby at Lakeridge.  On October 2nd, the day had finally come for Lakeridge to host the big Civil War game.  Portable bleachers were brought in to accommodate the visiting LOHS fans, because there is not a visitors' section - due to an agreement with the neighborhood association - at the Pacers' field.  The chilly Fall air in the stadium was filled with the scent of hamburgers grilling on a large open BBQ at one corner of the field, the stands were at near capacity, the Lakeridge band played with spirit and enthusiasm, the cheer teams rallied their fans on both sides of the field and LO and Lakeridge spirit was evident throughout the stadium.  This was a special event...for both schools.

As for the game, LO dominated from their opening series and rolled to a comfortable 42-10 victory.  Despite the lopsided loss to their bitterest of rivals, Lakeridge fans were far from disappointed on the night.  It was tough to loose the Civil War at home...but that was the most important aspect of the night.  They were "at home."
