Efficient Skyview blanks River

Storm spread the wealth in 42-0 win over Chieftains

By , Columbian Soccer, hockey and Community Sports Reporter

The Skyview Storm were brutally efficient in their rivalry football game with Columbia River.

The Storm scored on five of their first seven possessions and added a special teams touchdown in a 42-0 win over the Chieftains at Kiggins Bowl. Six different Skyview players reached the end zone.

“At times we executed real well and we limited turnovers,” Skyview coach Steve Kizer said. “We took some steps forward.”

By halftime, when Skyview led 35-0, the Storm had outgained the Chieftains 272-1 in net yardage.

Skyview quarterback Brody Barnum finished 16 for 19 for 162 yards and a touchdown throwing the ball and ran for 90 yards and another score.

Dyvon Green led the rushing attack with 131 yards on 12 carries, including an 8-yard touchdown run.

Skyview scored twice in the first quarter on drives of 66 yards on eight plays and 63 yards on 10 plays.

On the third play of the second quarter, Tavis Chunphakvenn-Pinkney produced a dazzling 55-yard punt return for a three-touchdown lead.

“Tavis did a great job of catching the ball on that and he did a nice job returning it,” Kizer said. “He ran hard.

The Storm defense never gave the Chieftains a chance to get moving with the ball.

Columbia River quarterback Jack Armstrong was sacked five times on his team’s first four possessions, ammounting to negative 31 yards.

“We had good push from the front and our gap integrity is steadily improving,” Kizer said.

The Chieftains ran three offensive plays and punted on each of their first seven possessions. They finished with three first downs. Nathaniel Trevino led Columbia River with 42 rushing yards.

The final yardage margin was 474-64.

Next Friday presents a different challenge for the Storm (3-2), who visit Camas for a Class 4A GSHL showdown.

“It should be a good game,” Kizer said. “We will just worry about us and try to keep improving.”

Columbia River (3-2 overall) will return to 2A Greater St. Helens League play to host Woodland for a game that features the two teams that are 2-0 in league play.
