Football: Scappoose shuts down, shuts out Tillamook
The Indians pick up their first league shutout since 2009
Scappoose senior quarterback Joey Krupsky rushed for 144 yards and threw for 85 as the Indians pounded Tillamook in the penultimate Cowapa League clash, beating the visiting Cheesemakers 55-0 for their first shutout since 2010.
The Tribe did most of their damage on the ground, rushing for 336 yards and five scores on the ground during the rain-soaked affair. Four Indians averaged more than 11 yards per carry, led by an 18-yard average from Krupsky. In addition, Scappoose got another big night from senior Braden Clark, who ran for 56 yards on just five attempts.
The defense was truly impressive as well. While the Indians did register a shutout in 2010, they hadn't done it in Cowapa League play since 2009, when Scappoose walloped Yamhill-Carlton 49-0.
Against Tillamook, Scappoose picked up seven tackles for loss and three interceptions, returning picks for 55 yards and a touchdown.
Scappoose, who led 48-0 at the break, will take their defense to Seaside for the final contest of the regular season, hoping to claim their second consecutive league title and gain a bye in the first round of the playoffs.
