Clackamas ground game overwhelms Reynolds
Mount Hood Conference
The Reynolds Raiders struggled to contain Clackamas tailback Jacob McGreevy Friday night.
McGreevy broke loose for a season-high 229 yards on 39 carries and scored on runs of 29, 21 and 5 yards, pacing the Cavaliers to a 43-20 victory over the visiting Raiders in the Mount Hood Conference opener for both teams.
Trailing 24-7 at halftime, Reynolds took the second-half kickoff and went on an eight-play, 68-yard scoring drive that ended with quarterback Tyler Christiansons 19-yard touchdown run.
Then in a span of less than two minutes, Bettles scored on a 63-yard run for Clackamas, the Raiders fumbled the ball away, and McGreevy scored on a 21-yard run that pushed the Cavs lead to 37-14 with 5:42 to play in the third quarter.
