Papermakers prepare for Week 9 battle with a 48-35 win over Skyview Friday
The Camas Papermakers set up their Week 9 winner-take-all showdown by taking care of business in Week 8.
Andrew Boyle had two touchdown passes, one touchdown run, and a defensive touchdown — all in the first half before he left the game with an injury — and Camas held off a Skyview rally for a 48-35 victory at Doc Harris Stadium.
Camas improved to 3-0 in the Class 4A Greater St. Helens League. Union also is 3-0, with the two league powers squaring off in final game of the regular season next week at McKenzie Stadium.
Skyview missed an opportunity to either finish second in the league or tie for a league title. Instead, the Storm will have to beat Heritage in Week 9 to secure the third and final playoff spot from the 4A GSHL.
Camas led 35-14 when Boyle left the game.
The Storm would later make it a seven-point game when Micah Baylous caught a touchdown pass from Yaro Duvalko with 10:14 to play.
The Skyview offense got the ball one more time while trailing by seven but the Camas defense was up to the challenge. Skyview punted with five minutes to play. The Storm would not get the ball back again until after they trailed by 13 points.
Camas senior Shane Jamison, normally a wide receiver, moved to running back to fill in for other injuries. He ended up with a 25-yard touchdown run to make it 48-35 with 2:46 to play.
The Storm were hit with the injury bug, too. Running back Jalynnee McGee, who had two touchdown runs in the first half, exited the game and did not return in the second half.
