Non-league football: Camas 28, Tumwater 26

The Columbian

The No. 1-ranked team in Class 2A gave 4A power Camas a run for its money before the Papermakers held on for the 28-26 non-league win on Friday at Tumwater.

Mark Thorkelson scored on pass plays of 60 and 86 yards from Taylor Ioane, Luke Jamison scored on a 1-yard run, and Nathan Criddle returned a fumble 83 yards for a score.

It was looking very good for the Papermakers as led 28-7 to start the fourth quarter.

And that’s when the Thunderbirds stormed back and nearly tied the game with 30 seconds to play.

A 14-play, 69-yard drive ending in Carlos Matheney’s 1-yard TD run made the score 28-20 after a failed two-point conversion try.

Then Tumwater capped its final drive with a touchdown pass, however, Camas intercepted the two-point try and sealed the win.
