Cook sets school record at McNary
The Cavalier junior passes for 353 yards in a 40-14 rout
KEIZER - The Clackamas Cavaliers are alive and well, thank you. Just ask the McNary Celtics.
There was some question as to the Cavaliers' prowess when they suffered a 28-23 loss in a football game at West Linn, after losing one of the state's top wide receivers - Ricky Cookman - to injury.
The Cavaliers were still without Cookman last Friday. But you wouldn't know it by the way they dominated McNary.
Even without Cookman, Clackamas junior quarterback Ryan Cook passed for a school-record 353 yards en route to a 40-14 trouncing of the Celtics.
Cook completed 18-of-27 passes for the 353 yards and three touchdowns, and the 6-3, 190-pound helmsman also rushed for a touchdown.
The outcome could have been even worse, except the Cavaliers had three touchdowns called back because of penalties.
The Cavaliers had 485 yards in offense on the night.
Veteran quarterback Brad Wagner rushed 12 times for 69 yards and a touchdown and also hauled in seven passes for 97 yards.
Junior Kylle Walkoski made four catches for 134 yards and a touchdown, and sophomore wide receiver Ben Adler made four catches for 76 yards and a touchdown.
Kyle Taylor and Trevor Liske also made catches for touchdowns. Liske's score came on an 11-yard aerial from back-up quarterback Jesse Achatz.
Cornerback Greg Inahara, inside linebacker Justin Inahara, outside linebacker Kyle Taylor and lineman Robert Young anchored a Cavalier defense that contained the Celtics to under 100 yards rushing and 174 yards passing.
Greg Inahara intercepted a pass, recovered a McNary fumble and sacked Celtic quarterback J.D. Klampe. Justine Inahara recovered a fumble and sacked the quarterback; Young had two quarterback sacks.
Clackamas put the game away in the second quarter, when the Cavaliers scored three touchdowns and built a 27-0 halftime lead.
The Cavaliers (2-2, 0-1) host winless Milwaukie (0-4, 0-1) this Friday.
McNary slipped to 2-2 with last Friday's loss.
