Sherwood can't snap Camas football winning streak
SHERWOOD — The Sherwood High School football team wasn't able to accomplish what many other teams have also failed out — trying to beat Camas.
Camas, Wash., upped its regular-season winning streak to 52 games by scoring a 34-12 win over the Bowmen in a non-league game played Friday at Sherwood High School.
With the loss, Sherwood saw its season record evened at 1-1. Camas, the defending Washington Class 4A state champion, improved to 2-0 with the victory.
The Papermakers got off to a fast start in Friday's game at Sherwood. A 4-yard touchdown run by senior Will Schultz, a 44-yard TD pass play from senior quarterback Kyle Allen to senior receiver Ja'Michael Shelton and a 4-yard touchdown pass from Allen to senior Ryan Rushall gave the visitors a 20-0 first-quarter lead.
Another TD run by Schultz, this one covering 59 yards, upped the Camas lead to 24-0 at halftime.
Sherwood did try to battle back in the third quarter, getting a 12-yard touchdown run by senior running back Takumi Kammerzell in the third quarter, and a 2-yard TD run by senior Jack Corno in the fourth quarter.
But that wasn't enough, as the Papermakers notched the 34-12 victory.
Senior Rustin Williams led the Bowmen ground attack in the contest with 66 yards on seven carries. Kammerzell added 36 yards on nine carries. Senior Kian Coleman-Lopez had 31 yards on two carries and senior Carsen Christensen ran for 23 yards on five carries.
Sherwood senior quarterback Wyatt Zettlemoyer completed four of 11 pass attempts for 130 yards. Senior Jaret Scott had two catches for 65 yards. Williams had one reception for 42 yards and Kammerzell had one catch for 23 yards.
For Camas, Allen completed 16 of 21 passes for 219 yards. Schultz ran for 134 yards on 18 carries.
The Bowmen will next be in action on Friday, when they host West Linn in a Three Rivers League opener set to start at 7 p.m. at Sherwood High School. The Lions, who are the Oregon Class 6A defending state champs, are off to a 2-0 start to the season.
