Woodland was clicking in its Trico League opener, shutting out Kalama on the road.

Eli Whitmire and Hunter Huddleston accounted for the first half scoring for Woodland.

Whitmire, who had 94 yards rushing, scored on a 73-yard punt return and a 55-yard run. Huddleston had touchdown runs on 13 and 7 yards.

"Eli Whitmire making his big plays kept our offense balanced between throw and run," Woodland coach Mark Greenleaf said.

The Woodland offensive line made sure the Beavers big plays happened.

"It was great execution up front by the offensive line," Greenleaf said. "That allowed for great execution by our quarterback."

Huddleston, who completed 7 of 11 passes for 137 yards, connected with Logan Piper on a 60-yard scoring play in the third quarter.

Greenleaf said the Woodland defense was solid overall.

"They helped put us in great field position," he said. "We pretty much had a short field all night."

Levi Leach had nine tackles and two assists as Ilwaco was held to 133 yards of offense.
