Non-league football: Battle Ground 24, Mount Tahoma 7

By , Columbian Assistant Sports Editor

Jordan Young returned the opening kickoff 96 yards for a touchdown, sparking Battle Ground to its first 5-0 start since 2012 with a 24-7 win over Mount Tahoma on Saturday in Tacoma.

Young also had a 2-yard touchdown run in the second quarter as the Tigers opened a 17-0 halftime lead.

After Mount Tahoma closed within 17-7 in the third quarter, the Thunderbirds threatened to close the gap further before the Tigers came up with key fourth-down stop at the Battle Ground 29.

Battle Ground then drove 71 yards on 11 plays to go up 24-7 on Jacob Champine’s 18-yard touchdown reception from Ethan Adams early in the fourth quarter. Noah Currie had a key fourth-down catch to extend the drive.

Battle Ground (5-0) will next face Lakes at home on Friday.
