Washougal 56, White Salmon 0
It was the Sam O’Hara show Friday night at Washougal High School on Friday as the versatile senior running back scored on a rushing TD, a 2-point conversion, and kicked five extra points to lead the Panthers.
O’Hara got the rout going with a 66-yard-touchdown run in the first quarter made all the more impressing considering he broke loose for a long touchdown on the previous play, only to have it called back because of a penalty. In an eerie sequence which looked like an instant replay, the Panthers called the exact same play with the exact same result. This time, the score counted.
“Our offensive line worked hard all offseason long to get bigger and stronger, and they were able to open a hole that I just ran through”, O’Hara said.
Washougal outrushed White Salmon 378-62. The Panthers scored on four touchdown rushes of 30 yards or more.
Austin Tofell and Colton Sullivan each had long touchdown runs to to match O’Hara in the first quarter.
Sophomore Bobby Jacobs scored three second-quarter touchdowns to make it 42-0 at the half. Jacobs turned out to be the leading rusher, gaining 155 yards with four touchdowns.
