Tual. White 20, L'ridge 6
Tualatin fifth/sixth-grade White team improved its record to 3-0 Saturday, beating a solid Lakeridge Blue team 20-6.
After holding Lakeridge to a turnover on downs on their first possession, Tualatin offensive line led the way on a 64-yard scoring drive. Key downfield blocking by flanker Tucker Bateman, tight end MacKay Dunlap, and wingback Tyler Riley resulted in a 49-yard touchdown run on a sweep by running back Cooper Brunner to take a 6-0 lead at the end of the first quarter.
On Lakeridge's next possession, a big hit by defensive lineman William Chapman caused a fumble, which was recovered by defensive end Austin Green. The Wolves then marched down the field to inside the Lakeridge red zone, before turning the ball back over to Lakeridge on downs deep in Lakeridge territory.
The Tualatin defense came up big once again on Lakeridge's next possession, when pressure from defensive linemen Tyler Allison, Chapman, Andy Collins, Green, Matt Sheperd, and Shawn VanHorn forced a bad pass that was picked off by cornerback Kyle George with a diving interception. On the next play from the line of scrimmage, George, at quarterback, danced through the Lakeridge defense to score a 35-yard touchdown. The point after by Brandon Day brought the score to 13-0 with 44 seconds left in the first half.
Lakeridge recovered its own onside kick to start the second half and proceeded to drive deep into Tualatin territory. Defensive linemen Justice Kono and Chris Raycraft worked hard to close the holes up the middle, and Lakeridge faltered on the Tualatin 17 yard line. After holding Tualatin on downs and taking over on the Tualatin 20 yard line, Lakeridge scored from inside the one yard line to cut the score to 13-6 at the beginning of the fourth quarter.
Lakeridge had another successful onside kick, but linebackers Mychal Makarowsky and Alex Mercado had big tackles that forced them to punt. Tualatin also punted on their next possession, and the defense was on the spot to hold onto the win. With 1:21 left in the game, cornerback B. Day clinched the Tualatin victory with an interception at the 36 yard line that he returned for a touchdown. George's extra point pass completion to Brunner gave Tualatin a 20-6 cushion.
On the ensuing kickoff, Garrett Medvec made an outstanding play to recover the Tualatin kick and keep the ball out of the hands of Lakeridge until time ran out. Defensive linemen Joseph Day and Tyler Gastiaburu worked hard to shut down the Lakeridge running game. Offensive linemen Austin Bishop and T.J. Beikman, flanker Ryan Wisner, and wingback Ryan Richardson did a great job opening up holes for the running game.
Brunner led the team in rushing with 64 yards, followed by George with 60 yards, B. Day with 39 yards, and Makarowsky with 20 yards. Defensively, safety Medvec and linebacker Mercado had outstanding games and led the team in tackles, with tremendous efforts from Green and Shepherd as well.

Tual. Black 31, LO 7
On a picture perfect sun splashed fall afternoon the Tualatin third/fourth-grade Black football team rolled to an impressive 31-7 win over Lake Oswego Navy.
The game started in ominous fashion for Tualatin as LO took the opening kickoff and marched the length of the field to take a 7-0 lead. However, impressive defense from Tualatin kept LO scoreless the rest of the first quarter. Tualatin was led by defensive lineman Ivan Vilcuaskas, who spent a good portion of the afternoon reeking havoc in the LO backfield. Others contributing tackles in the opening stanza included Daniel Ennis, Wesley Thomas, Cameron Frey, and Cole Gerke.
The momentum began to shift in Tualatin's favor early in the second quarter. QB Dakota Steppe engineered an impressive drive that led to Tualatin's first score with 7:38 remaining. The main cogs in the drive were running backs Eric Breyer and Ennis. Breyer gained 19 yards on two carries, and Ennis tore off a 20 yard gallop before scoring from 3 yards out to make the score 7-6 in favor of LO.
The defense, led by tackles by Gerke, Jorge Severiano, and Ennis, again forced an LO punt. The punt was hauled in by Calder Fettig, who raced down the sideline for a 45 yard punt return to the LO 10 yard line. Three plays later Fettig ran it in from the 1 yard line to make it 12-7 in favor of Tualatin. Steppe then intercepted a final LO pass to end the first half.
The first half was merely a prelude for Tualatin, who opened the second half by forcing an LO fumble their first possession. The fumble was recovered by Steppe, and the Tualatin offense was back in business. The crowd had barely settled back into their seats when Breyer ripped off a 23 yard touchdown run. QB Todd Pasquale-Uhlman than executed a beautiful extra point conversion by hitting receiver Nikolas Procaccini on a pass over the middle to make the score 19-7.
The Tualatin defense continued to dominate the line of scrimmage, with Vilcauskas and Frey both tacking LO runners for losses on consecutive plays. Frey than recovered another LO fumble, and the Tualatin offensive machine was back in business. Tualatin again drove the ball down in impressive fashion. The key plays in the drive were a 25 yard pass play from QB Pasquale-Uhlman to Zachary Reynholds that had the crowd on its feet, an 18 yard run by Trevor Tillema, and another TD for Breyer on a 6 yard run. When the Tualatin faithful looked up at the scoreboard they noticed that the sun was shining even brighter, with the score standing at 25-7 in Tualatin's favor. Other standout plays for Tualatin in the third quarter included Breyer's recovery of a fumble on a kickoff, a nice pass play from Steppe to Gerke, a booming 25 yard punt by Thomas, and tackles in the LO backfield by Vilcauskas and Gerke.
The highlight of the fourth quarter occurred when Ennis stripped the ball from the LO quarterback and galloped 80 yards for a touchdown, which was the final nail in the coffin of a 31-7 Tualatin victory. Other standout plays in the fourth quarter included a fumble recovery by Frey, a nice scramble by QB Pasquale-Uhlman, and tackles for losses by Vilcauskas and Reynholds. Tualatin was also greatly aided in victory by the efforts of Jack Dupuis, Devon Gillard, Brendan O'Neill, Jared Bobbitt, Spencer Hanash, Matthew Gilbert, Dasan Kenderes, Kellen Poti, Antonio Rodondi, Douglas Skinner, and Tucker Trost.

Sher. 26, Tigard Gray 13
The Tigard fifth/sixth-grade Gray team did its best to stop the Sherwood Black's high power running game and it did for most of the first half, giving up only two 1st downs until just under 3 minutes left in the half, when a Sherwood back broke through and ran 41 yards to score.
The Tigard defense was missing Justin Evans to an injury, but still had 15 people in on plays. Tarek Wirfs, Austin Davis, Hayden Flake, Ethan Lange, and Joshua Miller led the defense. Zachary Bigei saw increased playing time on defense and made or assisted on 3 tackles.
Flake forced a fumble, which Wirfs recovered, Lange recovered a fumble, Davis stripped the ball and recovered it from a Sherwood defender who had just intercepted a pass and returned it for almost 20 yards. Tigard's defensive backfield of Chance Taylor, Chandler Kelly, Maclain Bartley, Tyler Woodworth, and Michael Mullen all made tackles.
Special teams were a big plus for Tigard on Saturday, both Tarek Wirfs who kicked off, and Micheal Mullen who punted, made the ball hard to handle for Sherwood, and the Tigard tacklers, including Tanner Padbury were able to hold Sherwood to zero or minimal return yards.
Austin Davis blocked an extra point kick attempt. Mullen had a 10-yard kick return and Justin Alvarizares weaved through Sherwood defenders to gain 21 yards on another.
The second half was a long run highlight show, with Sherwood scoring on 2 long runs and 1 short run, and Tigard's QB Taylor Courtney scoring twice on runs of 52 and 55 yards. Hayden Flake converted on one of the extra point attempts. Tigard concentrated on the run, only attempting 3 passes with 1 completion to Chance Taylor. Tigard's offense racked up 174 yards on the ground. Flake was the workhorse of the backfield gaining 56 yards on 14 attempts. Brandon Latt, new to the backfield got his first carry. Ethan Lange, Joshua Miller, and Austin Davis also rushed for Tigard.
LO 27, Tual. JV Black 0
The Timberwolves showed improvement on Saturday in a physically punishing game at Lake Oswego.
The Lakers scored on their first offensive possession of the game, but Zach Giulio's interception of the point-after pass attempt limited the drive to six points. Tualatin responded with a long, clock-eating drive of its own. Lining up behind center Spencer Parham, QB Giulio directed a ground attack that featured solid rushing by Anthony Ramirez, Alex Fonseca, and Tanner Baldwin. Raul Bautista, Casey Davis, Keagan Brown, Jack Furlong and Conor Hinds helped push the drive into the second quarter before it stalled on the Lake Oswego side of the field.
Great tackling by James Bates and sacks by Ramirez and Ray Richards led up to an inspiring goal-line stand as time ran out in the half. Scott Allred, Sean Blice, Dillon Hoy, Steven Gilkey, Hayden Richardson, Jadon Wiersma, Wilson Giles and Devin Hill all contributed to a fine defensive effort that held the score to 12-0 at halftime.
The second half started promisingly for the Wolves, as Lake Oswego's opening possession ended on a fumble forced by Fonseca and recovered by Blice. An energized Tualatin offense put together another nice drive, with Jackson Biehn handling the snaps at center, Ramirez rolling up yardage on the ground, and Giulio going to the air, completing passes to Baldwin and Nathan Suyematsu. Unfortunately, they were unable to convert the effort into points on the scoreboard, and the Lakers capitalized on the opportunity, taking a three-touchdown lead into the fourth quarter.
The third quarter drama was reprised in the fourth. The Timberwolves mounted another vigorous attack, moving the ball on the ground and through the air, before a turnover ended the drive deep in Lake Oswego territory. The Lakers responded once again, scoring in the waning moments of the game. Tyler Giulio, and Brian Reverman, both out with injuries, were unable to play but supported their teammates from the sidelines.

The Tualatin third/fourth-grade gray team moved to a 3-0 record, with a physical win against Rex Putnam green.

A 40 yard touchdown on a beautiful pitch made from quarterback Kyle Bradish to running back Jordan Wilson gave the Wolves the lead. While Putnam's offense fought hard, they were no match for the Wolves defense. Key tackles made by Hayden Givens, Emilio Lopez, and Kaleb Arizmendi- Frias, and a fumble recovery by Jared Cichoke marked the victory for the Wolves.

Good tackles made by Chase Anderson, Austin Cuellar, and Senger stopped Putnam from getting to the outside. Tualatin did their job stopping Putnam on their first possession. Putnam came back with a long run to make the score 6-6 before going into the half.
The second half started with a big kick return by Arizmendi with key blocks by Oliver Price, Lopez, Michael Galluzo, and JJ Carter. Crucial offensive blocking by Mitchell King and center, Schockloss, gave Bradish an opening for a screen pass to Day for another first down. As Tualatin marched up the field, Putnam's defense held their efforts.
The third quarter ended by stopping Putnam with the physical Timberwolves defense led by Petit, Strength, Carter, and Day.
With 9:46 left in the game, a nice pitch to Wilson resulted in a touchdown run of 40 yards. Cook and Senger make key blocks to allow the run. The defense never quit and a strong team effort stopped Putnam on both of their last two possessions. Matthew Todd and Bradish hit them hard with tackles, while a blitz by Cichoke pressured Putnam. Pancake blocks by Arizmendi- Frias, and Cook, made for a tenacious effort by the Wolves.
