The 62-6 win was even more lopsided than it sounds.

Scappoose (2-2 overall, 1-0 Cowapa League) scored an unbelievable 41 points in the first quarter and led 55-6 at the half.

The Tribe finished the Seagulls (2-2, 0-1) quickly with a running clock in the second half.

"We played better for sure," Indians coach Sean McNabb said.

Scappoose rang up its most points since beating Yreka (Calif.) 69-36 last year at the University of Oregon's Autzen Stadium in Eugene, and allowed its fewest points since it sailed 55-6 past the Seagulls last year.

Michael Gift took a Quinn Searle screen 49 yards for a score on the first play from scrimmage in this year's go-round, and Jerad Toman ran in the two-pointer for an 8-0 lead with 11:47 left in the first quarter.

Searle hit Nate Rieman for a 33-yard touchdown — on the Indians' fourth play of the game — after Jimmy Jones' interception, and the Tribe jumped out 15-0 at 9:54.

Tanner Kramer's interception sprung Toman's two-yard touchdown run and a 21-0 lead as the Seagulls blocked Benji Davidson's point-after attempt with 4:40 to go.

The Tribe took over again quickly and Searle found Gift for an eight-yard pass in the back corner of the end zone for a 28-0 advantage at 2:01.

Seaside gave the ball back with 21 seconds left, Searle cut loose on a 47-yard run and Davidson's point-after rang up a 35-0 lead.

Scappoose wasn't quite done: On Seaside's first play of its new drive from the 30-yard line, Trey Bispham tore through for a sack, a strip, a 20-yard touchdown — the junior defensive lineman's first ever — and a 41-0 lead to end the first quarter.

Colton Bush found the end zone on a two-yard run and Toman added a 37-yard touchdown sprint to close the first half.

Seaside drove for a 10-yard pass to junior wide receiver Garret Kiser from sophomore wideout Alexander Teubner, but the two-point pass failed with 1:21 to halftime.

The second half went quickly with a running clock and lasted 24 minutes.

Carson Witt ran six yards for a score on Brendyn Nollette's handoff with 10:15 left in the game.

Scappoose is scheduled to host Tillamook (0-4, 0-1) at 7 p.m. on Friday.
