Cavs win 42-41 slugfest at Canby

Clackamas ties for second in the TRL


CANBY— Clackamas’ football team got back on the win track Friday, rallying from a 28-14 early third-quarter deficit to beat Canby 42-41 in overtime.

The hard fought game came down to PAT kicks. Clackamas senior Michael McDonald made all six of his, including the game-winner, after Dan Sherrell scored on a 25-yard run on Clackamas’ first play of the overtime.

Noah Kyllo scored for Canby on an 11-yard run in the overtime. But Cougar kicker Alejandro Sandoval missed on his point-after attempt, and the Cavaliers celebrated the 42-41 victory.

With the win, Clackamas (7-2, 3-2) finished the regular season tied with Lakeridge (7-2, 3-2), in second place in the Three Rivers League standings.

Ranked sixth in the state, the Cavaliers will host a first-round state playoff game on Friday, Nov. 8, against a yet-to-be determined opponent.

Sherrell was huge for Clackamas at Canby, rushing for 165 yards and four touchdowns.

The 5-9, 170-pound senior scored on a 51-yard run that made it 14-7 Clackamas in the second quarter, on a 25-yard run that trimmed Canby’s lead to 28-21 in the third quarter, on a one-yard run that put Clackamas up 35-28 in the fourth quarter, and the game-winner in the extra period.

Doonie Johnson and Bryce Dickey also scored for Clackamas, Johnson on a 2-yard run in the first quarter, and Dickey on a 7-yard run in the fourth stanza.

Last Friday’s win followed on the heels of two heartbreaking losses, 42-18 to Lake Oswego, and 35-21 to Oregon City.
