There is no turning off, holding back or dampening great high school football in Oregon.

Despite Friday night's rain, the football was as hot as ever in the 2015 high school football season, with league play rolling along in all six of the state's six Class 6A conferences.

And since there was all that great gridiron action to see — at the Class 5A, 4A and 3A levels, too, by the way — Community Newspapers' sports editors, reporters and photographers raced out to document a bunch of it.

Among the 13 games covered by Community Newspapers, there were some absolutely huge results that will continue to shape the state's power rankings for weeks to come.

In case you may have missed some of these landmark scores, here's a look back at Friday night's top five. You can see all our coverage by clicking on the new Prep Sports tab — to see it, just hover over the Sports tab — on all our websites.
