WOODLAND — Brooks Massey rushed for 142 yards and three touchdowns as the Beavers shocked the Chieftains in a 2A Greater St. Helens League matchup.
The Chieftains (3-3 in league play, 3-5 overall) entered the game in the driver’s seat to earn one of the four playoff berths allocated to the 2A GSHL. Now Woodland (2-3, 2-6) just needs to defeat Mark Morris (also 2-3 in league play) next week and the Beavers will be in the playoffs. If the Monarchs win, Columbia River will make the playoffs. The Chieftains have a non-league contest against Clarkston next week.
Woodland found the end zone on its opening drive with the big play being a 50-yard run by Massey on a fake punt to take a lead it would never lose.
The Beaver defense also did its part, holding the Chieftains to 55 yards in the first half and dominating the line of scrimmage. Issac Bibb-O’Neil, who had 184 yards rushing last week, was held to 25 yards.
Mason Priddy threw for 137 yards and two scores for the Chieftains, one to Jacob Ayers and one to Adam Huerena.
