FRIDAY'S TOP FIVE
Anyone who went to Friday night's Oregon City-Sunset game expecting to see two teams flex some defensive muscle was disappointed.
Rahter, those who showed up at Pioneer Memorial Stadium hoping to see a high-scoring shootout to open the Class 6A football playoffs got their wish.
Ethan Kassebaum scored his second touchdown and Oregon City's 11th of the night on a 52-yard run with 1:20 play, delivering the decisive blow in the Pioneers' 75-72 victory over the Apollos in the highest scoring playoff game in Oregon high school 11-man football history.
Barlow came out swinging in the first round of the 6A football playoffs Friday night, landing a couple of early haymakers against Tigard in a game that wouldn't be decided until a final throw to the end zone that allowed the No. 6-ranked Tigers to escape 42-35.
The Tualatin High School football team played a decent first half.
The Timberwolves then seemed to play a much, much better — and much more intense — second half.
Put them both together, and Tualatin came up with an impressive postseason victory.
The Wolves, after jumping out to a 14-0 halftime lead, shined on offense, defense and special teams in the second half on their way to scoring a 36-8 win over Madison in a Class 6A state playoff first-round game played Friday at Tualatin High School.
Sometimes you just get beat.
Liberty exceeded expectations this year. In just their second season at the 6A level, the Falcons finished 7-2, tied for second in the tough Metro League, and qualified for and hosted a state playoff game versus Sherwood. But that's where the fairy tale ended.
The Falcons fell to the Bowmen 49-28 Friday, Nov. 3 on a cold, clear night at Liberty High School. In a game littered with offensive fireworks, Sherwood made a couple more plays, got a couple more stops, and pulled away from Liberty at the start of the fourth quarter, abruptly ending the Falcons year.
It was a tough fight on Friday Nov. 3, but Wilsonville put their stamp on it in the end. The Wildcats defeated the Bend Lava Bears 41-21.
