Cameron Crooks caught two touchdown passes from Jake Kennedy, who ran for two more TDs, as Skyview beat Columbia River 49-0 on Friday at Kiggins Bowl.
Trey Jacob also rushed for two touchdowns as Skyview rolled up 204 yards on the ground.
Crooks took a short pass and broke free for 43 yards for the game’s first touchdown. The senior then put Skyview ahead 21-0 early in the second quarter on a 13-yard score.
Crooks finished with a game-high 83 receiving yards on five catches.
“My linemen had great blocks for me,” Crooks said. “On both of the touchdowns it was the same play, almost. They got out there to block. Jake’s delivering the ball really well.”
Skyview, ranked No. 4 in Class 4A, posted its second shutout to start the season. The Storm outgained the Rapids 416-33.
Skyview has dominated the rivalry game against Class 2A Columbia River, winning the last nine in a row. The last eight have had an average margin of 42-6.
The tension between the west-county schools flared on the field as seven unsportsmanlike conduct penalties were issued (five to Skyview, two to Columbia River).
“The atmosphere is a little different than a normal game, but we go into each week the same,” Crooks said. “We prepare the same.”
Columbia River (0-2) drove inside Skyview’s 20 on its first drive. But the Rapids’ offense was derailed when quarterback Brayden Schiefer suffered a shoulder injury late in the first quarter.
It was all Skyview from then on. The Storm sent the game into a running-clock on Kennedy’s 6-yard touchdown run early in the third quarter.
The junior quarterback completed 14 of 22 passes for 184 yards. He also had a 14-yard touchdown on a quarterback scramble in the second quarter.
Jacob had 91 yards rushing on 16 carries, including touchdowns of five and three yards.
“I think we’re going to do great things,” Crooks said. “We’re going to have a long season.”
