Westside football wrap: Jesuit overcomes early deficit to defeat Westview
Jesuit (3-1) overcame an early 21-0 deficit to defeat Westview (3-1) 44-42, marking the Crusaders' 26th consecutive win over the visiting Wildcats. Jesuit running back Michael Rincon paced the Crusaders, rushing for 173 yards and four touchdowns. Westview's Sam Leavitt completed 20 of his 39 pass attempts for 300 yards and two touchdowns, while safety Drew Bennett tallied two interceptions for touchdowns.
Glencoe (3-1) defeated Reynolds 28-7 thanks in part to tight end Zack Schlottmann's seven catches for 143 yards, along with quarterback Royce Fasel's 261 combined rushing and passing yards, three total touchdowns and two blocked punts. The Crimson Tide defense held the visiting Raiders to just 114 yards of offense.
Caleb Paler rushed for 175 yards and a touchdown, helping to lead Mountainside (1-3) to a 28-14 victory over winless Sherwood. The Bowmen (0-4) have played one of the state's tougher early season schedules, facing four opponents with a combined record of 12-3.
Tigard (2-2) evened their record with a 27-23 non-conference win over Newberg. The Tigers' Karson Boschma sealed the home Tigard win with a late interception on a fourth-and-13 play on Newberg's final offensive possession. Sam Murphy ran for two scores for winless Newberg.
Beaverton's Hunter Borter continued his attack on local defenses, throwing six touchdown passes in a 56-28 Metro League win over crosstown Southridge (0-4). The Beavers (2-2) are averaging nearly 50 points per game over their last three contests, and — in addition to Borter — were paced by receiver Cristian Gonzalez who caught three touchdowns in the win. Southridge was led by running backs Cypress Albright and Jackson Powell, who combined for 379 yards and three touchdowns in defeat.
Scappoose (2-2) lost a barn-burner to No. 2-ranked Wilsonville 52-41. The Indians fell behind 28-0 in the first half, but battled back thanks in part to quarterback Luke McNabb, who accounted for six total touchdowns (three passing, three rushing) and receiver Colin Stoddard, who caught eight balls for 196 yards. Wilsonville rushed for 396 yards on 54 carries.
Quarterback Jack Wagner, playing in place of injured standout Jackson Jones, again dazzled, completing 16 of 18 pass attempts for 225 yards and a touchdown in undefeated Tualatin's 41-7 rout of West Salem. Timberwolves (4-0) running back Malik Ross carried 12 times for 72 yards and three touchdowns.
Sunset (3-1) dominated Aloha (0-4), rushing for 311 yards in a 49-0 win over the home Warriors. The Apollos were led by running back Caleb Kim, who carried 15 times for 140 yards and two touchdowns, along with quarterback Grady Newsom, who threw three scoring throws in the win.
North Salem scored the game's first two touchdowns and never looked back in a 47-20 win over Hillsboro (1-3).
Forest Grove (2-2) lost a Special District 2 heartbreaker to McKay 31-28. The loss was the second consecutive for the Vikings, who started the season with wins over The Dalles and McMinnville. The Vikes will host St. Helens Friday, Oct. 1.
St. Helens (1-2), fresh from a forfeiture to Hillsboro a week prior, fell to 5A power and No. 5-ranked Canby 55-13.
Banks' game with Rainier was canceled. The Braves (3-1) will travel to Astoria this Friday, Oct. 1, for their Cowapa League opener with the Fishermen.
