Mason Priddy anchored the offense and had an interception on defense for Columbia River, while R.A. Long scored its first touchdown of the season, Friday at Kiggins Bowl.
Priddy completed 17 of his 24 passes for 243 yards and four touchdowns. The senior also ran in a 17-yard touchdown to start a 35-point scoring barrage for Columbia River in the second quarter to go up 49-0 at halftime.
R.A. Long hung tough in the third quarter and finally broke through with a score in the fourth. Sophomore quarterback Shaun Mize escaped the defensive blitz and hit an open Jamond Harris II for a 60-yard touchdown.
Columbia River senior Keith Blau caught three touchdown passes from Priddy for totals of 19, 15 and 48 yards. Blau’s longest score came on a quick strike from Priddy out in the open. Blau spun around a defender and continued on to the end zone.
Dylan Kier and Eddie Hockhalter ran in touchdowns for River. Max Sturtevant paired a 27-yard snag with a beautiful 23-yard diving catch to set up one more touchdown for River in the first half. Sturtevant capped off the drive with a 4-yard touchdown catch.
Cade Lujan covered the spread for Columbia River. The senior caught a 25-yard pass, made all seven of his extra-point kicks and nailed a 23-yard field goal.
