Week 8 prep football highlights: Camas routs Union 49-13

By , Columbian Assistant Sports Editor

Folks around the state might glance at Camas’ 5-3 record and overlook the Papermakers.

That’s just fine with Camas.

Playing perhaps their most complete game of the season, the Papermakers rolled past rival Union 49-13 on Friday, making Camas’ 0-3 start to the season feel like a distant memory.

“Those three teams are some of the best teams in the region,” senior defensive lineman Holt Williams said, referring to Yelm, Glacier Peak and Lincoln of Tacoma — Camas’ first three opponents. “I think those really just prepared us for these tougher games down the road. A lot of these other teams we’re playing now haven’t seen the competition that we have.”

Prairie 13, Evergreen 6

Prairie’s hopes of finishing the season on a positive, and perhaps even extending it beyond Week 9, were kept alive in a 13-6 win over Evergreen at McKenzie Stadium.

The Plainsmen (6-2, 2-1 3A GSHL) can still clinch a share of the league title with a win next week against Kelso, but a loss could lead to a scenario where Prairie (5-3, 1-2), Evergreen and Mountain View are all tied for second place.
