Football: Scappoose stomps Benson 56-14

Scappoose might have gotten off to a slow start, but once the Indians got rolling, visiting Benson was powerless to slow the up-tempo, no-huddle offense that has tormented Tribe opponents over the last several years.

Scappoose led 28-6 at the halftime break, and had plenty more highlights to offer down the stretch, pulling away to blast Benson 56-14 behind another big night from senior quarterback Joey Krupsky.

The 'easy' contests are now behind Scappoose, as a tough trip to No. 6 Gladstone looms in a week's time. The Gladiators stomped perennial power Philomath 55-27 in week one before holding North Marion to a single touchdown in their 27-7 victory in the second week. Gladstone boasts one of the top running backs in the state, Handsome Smith, who should prove to be a difficult challenge for the improving Scappoose defense to handle.

On offense, it should be a litmus test as well. With 110 points in the books after two weeks of football, Scappoose ranks as the highest scoring offense in all of Class 4A.
