3A GSHL football: Mountain View 48, Heritage 6

Mountain View’s offense fired cylinders in a rout of Heritage at McKenzie Stadium.

Kedyn Bolds had a 35-yard touchdown run on the first play of the game, the opening shot in a 27-point first quarter for Mountain View.

Bolds also returned an interception for a touchdown as the Thunder led 41-6 at halftime.

Porter Drake had an 82-yard rushing touchdown and a 53-yard receiving score from Cash Cook.

Akili Kamau rushed for 65 yards and a score. Lineman Ayden Denbo scored a touchdown after a completed pass to Kyle Chen was bobbled and recovered by Denbo, who took it in for the score.

“I think we just came out here and had fun with it today and sometimes that’s when things click the most and guys get the ball” said Chen. “I mean that’s really what it’s all about, but when it comes to finishing league play, I think they gave the wrong team life this year.”

For Heritage, Evan Buckman had 20 rushes and 100 yards.

Evergreen’s loss to Prairie earlier in the day gave Mountain View’s postseason hopes a boost. If Evergreen loses to Kelso and Prairie beats Heritage, Mountain View will find itself in a three-team tiebreaker.

“The league is tough this year and our guys are gonna go play a tough team and have to come back and be prepared for anything,” Thunder coach Adam Mathieson said. “We gotta mentally prepare for three teams almost but if there’s any team built for a tie-breaker situation with a lot on the line, it’s this team”
