Timberwolves pull away from Hilhi

Hillsboro hung with Tualatin for the better part of two quarters on Friday night, but ultimately the Timberwolves were simply too much in a 45-29 Pacific Conference football victory.

Tualatin (3-1, 2-0) built an early 14-0 lead, but Hilhi fought back to tie the game on a 22-yard touchdown pass from Matt Jones to Dylan Frederick, followed by a 20-yard scoring run from T.J. Cavendar.

Those two scores tied the game at 14-14, but Tualatin went back on top with a 5-yard Eli Robinson run, and the Wolves added a dagger just before halftime, with Brandon Shroyer hitting Nick Hines for a 35-yard touchdown with eight seconds left in the half.

Hilhi (2-2, 1-1) got as close as 35-21 in the third quarter when Jones and Frederick hooked up again, this time on a 75-yard bomb, but Tualatin slammed the door with a 39-yard scoring pass from Shroyer to Hines and a 35-yard Ryan Hiatt field goal that made it 45-21.

Jones completed 14-of-26 passes for 235 yards and two touchdowns, and backup Garrett Paul went 3-of-5 for 84 yards, including a 67-yard touchdown pass to Hunter Morse late in the fourth quarter.

Frederick had a huge game at receiver, catching seven passes for 171 yards and two touchdowns. Cavender led the ground game with 43 yards and a touchdown on seven carries.

The Spartans will face city rival Glencoe (2-2, 1-1) tonight at Hare Field. Kickoff is set for 7 p.m.

Jaguars falter against Tigard

The Century football team is still searching for its first victory of the 2013 season following a 49-13 loss to Tigard last Friday night.

The Jaguars fell behind 14-0 in the first quarter, then watched as Tigard (4-0, 2-0) scored four touchdowns in the second quarter to make it 42-0 at halftime.

Tigard quarterback Jett Even completed 8-of-16 passes for 217 yards, but five of those completions went for touchdowns — 23- and 68-yard strikes to Samuel Inos in the first quarter, followed by a 3-yard pass to A.J. Hotchkins early in the second quarter, a 59-yard heave to Bruin Campbell and a 53-yard connection with Inos just 32 seconds before intermission. Inos finished with four catches for 152 yards.

Century (0-4, 0-2) got on the scoreboard midway through the third quarter on a 3-yard scoring run by Christian Gutierrez-Treat, and the Jaguars added another touchdown early in the fourth quarter on a 5-yard run by quarterback Marcos Hernandez.

Century rushed for 157 yards in the game, getting 56 yards from Gutierrez-Treat and 51 from Hernandez, but the Jaguars averaged just 2.7 yards per carry.

Century will travel to Forest Grove (3-1, 1-1) tonight for another Pacific Conference game.
