Scappoose 5th- and 6th-graders to face Wilsonville in Saturday's district championship
Indians look to avenge regular season loss to undefeated Wildcats
The Scappoose fifth- and sixth-grade football team is out for vengeance.
The Indians (7-2 overall) got back at No. 2 Milwaukie in last week's 18-13 playoff win.
Wilsonville (7-0), the only other team to beat Scappoose in the regular season, is next.
The Indians and top-ranked Wildcats will decide the Tualatin Valley Football League division championship at 3 p.m. on Saturday at Hare Field in Hillsboro.
Wilsonville previously beat third-ranked Scappoose 28-13.
"I think it's been some time since Scappoose made the playoffs," Indians third-year coach Troy Duschka said. "We're energetic, quick learners and physical."
The Wildcats run an I-formation power attack. Scappoose runs a spread offense like the high school varsity's.
"We have to control the line of scrimmage: 'Stop the run, have some fun,'" Duschka said. "We have to execute because they have a good defense, too. Our defense has been really good in the last couple of weeks. We shut out Sandy, then we shut out Milwaukie in the second half."
The Indians trailed Milwaukie 13-12 at halftime.
Team pictures will be taken and medals will be awarded after the game.
