2A/1A Football: Tenino Earns First Win Against Chimacum
By The Chronicle
CHIMACUM — Tenino’s defense pitched a shutout to lead the Beavers to a 31-6 win over Chimacum in a non-league football game here on Friday night.
Shawn Nicholson carried the load for Tenino with 19 carries for 201 yards and a touchdown. Aiden Wright was 15-of-22 for 190 yards with two touchdowns throwing and one on the ground. Paxton Russell was the leading receiver with seven catches for 78 yards and a score.
“Kids played really hard. It was a little slow starting in the beginning but we ended up taking the game over and doing what they needed to do to get the win,” Tenino coach Cary Nagel said.
Tenino put up 12 points in the first quarter on scores by Nicholson and Wright on the ground. Wright found Russell on a touchdown pass in the second quarter for an 18-0 lead at intermission.
Russell ran in a score and Wright found Gavin Watson for the final score of the night.
Nagel commended the performances of Nicholson running the ball and the play of his defense for not allowing a Chimacum offensive score. The Cowboys only touchdown came from the defense, an 85-yard interception return in the second quarter.
Tenino (1-1) hosts Castle Rock next Friday in a non-league contest.
Eagles Soar Past Rochester
ROCHESTER — The Warriors couldn’t get anything going against Elma here on Friday as the Eagles cruised to a 63-14 win in a non-league football game.
“We just missed a lot of opportunities on both sides of the ball,” Rochester coach John Moorhead said. “A lack of execution is really the name of our game. Elma capitalized on their opportunities. The opportunities we had, we swatted away.”
In spite of the loss, Moorhead highlighted the play of Garrett Glazer at linebacker. Moorhead noted the Warriors missed three touchdown passes in the first 10 minutes of the game.
“Any time they had a crease, they capitalized. We left a lot of big plays on the board,” Moorhead said. “They outplayed us on special teams. That’s kind of the way the game went, it got out of hand, we couldn’t make a tackle.”
Rochester (1-1) will try to bounce back next Friday against Bremerton in Rochester.
Centralia Falls in Shootout With Evergreen
Centralia’s offense piled up points for the second time in as many games, but the defense couldn’t slow down Evergreen in a 62-50 loss Friday night in nonleague football action at Tiger Stadium.
Cameron Erickson threw six touchdown passes and Chase Sobolesky ran 10 times for 83 yards and two scores for the Tigers, who trailed 42-24 going into the final frame.
“We put up a lot of points in a hurry; we just couldn’t keep up,” Centralia coach Jeremy Thibault said. “We had a couple bad things happen. A couple of kids got injured.”
Benito Valencia and Derek Beairsto each caught two touchdown passes for the Tigers, with Sobolesky and Blaine Wass adding one apiece. Wass also notched a rushing touchdown.
The Tigers, though, lost starting fullback Brady Hoyt to a rolled ankle during the contest.
“It’s hard to set things up without a trap game,” Thibault said.
Evergreen got 120 rushing yards from Tyvauntae Deloney, and quarterback Carter Monda went 14 of 22 for 297 yards and three touchdowns.
Centralia managed 414 yards of total offense, but allowed 492.
“We’re young,” Thibault said. “We’re going to get there. I’m not too worried about it.”
Centralia (1-1) plays at Sehome on Saturday, Sept. 21.
