PORTLAND - David Douglas came up with all the big plays in the second half to blow past Barlow 33-14 on Friday night.

The Scots didn't waste much time breaking a 14-14 halftime tie when quarterback Greg Carradine broke loose for a 68-yard touchdown run on the team's first possession of the third quarter. He got loose down the Barlow sideline, ran out of room near the 15-yard-line and cut back across the field past three Barlow tacklers to find the end zone.

'I saw the open seam, and I ran for the pylon,' Carradine said. 'We came up with the big plays, and you could feel our confidence grow in the huddle.'

Douglas got the ball back a few minutes later and struck again - this time putting the game away 27-14 late in the third quarter.

Carradine rolled to his right and fired a short pass to receiver Brennan East, who broke in front of a Barlow defender, snagged the ball in front of his facemask and zipped away the final 35 yards for the touchdown.

Barlow moved inside the Scots' 20-yard line twice in the second half, but came away empty on each scoring chance.
