Wolves keep rolling with win over Tide

Tualatin wins 30-7 to finish the regular season at 8-1


HILLSBORO — Another week, another big win for the Tualatin High School football team.

Now, the Timberwolves hope to keep their momentum rolling right into the Class 6A state playoffs.

Tualatin posted its third straight impressive win to finish regular-season play, rolling to a 30-7 victory over Glencoe in a Pacific Conference finale played Friday at Hare Field.

“The last part of our schedule has been challenging,” said Tualatin coach Rob Hastin, whose Timberwolf squad posted wins over McMinnville and Century prior to Friday’s victory over Glencoe. “We played three really good teams and got three great wins.”

With the loss, Glencoe finished the regular season with a 3-4 record in league games and an overall mark of 5-4.

Tualatin improved to 6-1 in Pacific Conference games, putting the Wolves alone in second place in the final league standings.

Tualatin also upped tis overall mark to 8-1.

In Friday’s game, the Wolves seemed to have their way on both sides of the ball. On offense, Tualatin had 340 total yards, with 225 of those yards coming on the ground. Meanwhile, the Timberwolf defense limited the Crimson Tide to just 160 yards of offense.

“We’ve been playing physical, and that’s good,” Hastin said. “And, on offense, we’re trying to improve every week.”

After a scoreless first quarter, the Wolves broke things open in the second quarter.

Senior running back Andrew Schlottmann got things rolling with a 19-yard touchdown run on a fourth-down play.

Senior running back Austin Green upped the margin to 14-0 with a 41-yard touchdown gallop.

Senior Caio Alves then booted a 26-yard field goal to up the Tualatin lead to 17-0 at halftime.

Glencoe trimmed the lead to 17-7 on a 1-yard touchdown run by senior Ryan Spaulding in the third quarter.

The Wolves answered that with a 1-yard touchdown run by senior Zachary Salton.

Tualatin capped off the scoring with a 3-yard touchdown pass from junior quarterback Brandon Shroyer to Schlottmann with 2 minutes and 18 seconds left in the game, making the final score 30-7.

“Our offensive line played great,” Hastin said. “They’ve made a lot of progress.”

Schlottmann led the Tualatin rushing attack with 141 yards on 20 carries. Green added 48 yards on six carries.

Shroyer completed 10 of 25 pass attempts for 115 yards. Senior Jeffrey Williams had three catches for 40 yards and junior Cooper Brunner had three receptions for 31 yards.

On defense, junior Chandler Schoonmaker recovered a Glencoe fumble.

Tualatin, which has a bye this week, will be back in action Nov. 9 when it hosts a Class 6A state playoff first-round contest.
