Sherwood wraps up NWOC title

The Bowmen improve to 8-0 with a 55-20 win over Sandy


SANDY — The Sherwood streaks are all still going strong.

The Bowmen football team picked up its 37th straight regular season win, its 31st straight Northwest Oregon Conference victory while also wrapping up its fourth straight NWOC championship.

And Sherwood did all of that at the same time.

The Bowmen claimed sole possession of the 2013 NWOC title by running to a 55-20 win over Sandy in a conference game played Friday at Sandy High School.

With the victory, Sherwood, which holds the No. 1 spot in the OSAA power rankings, improved to 8-0 on the season while also moving to 6-0 in NWOC play.

That gives the Bowmen a two-game lead over second place Parkrose, Sandy and Wilsonville, who are all 4-2, with each team having one more game left to play.

The Bowmen wasted little time in taking charge in Friday’s game at Sandy.

Sherwood senior Tanner Shadbolt scored on a 52-yard run on the team’s first offensive play of the game to give the Bowmen a quick 7-0 lead.

The next time Sherwood had the ball, it moved 87 yards in five plays, getting a 9-yard touchdown run by senior Keegan Lawrence to up the margin to 14-0.

Bowmen senior fullback Jake Reimer added a 43-yard TD run later in the period to up the Sherwood lead to 21-0 before then end of the first quarter.

Sherwood upped the lead to 28-0 in the second quarter on a 1-yard scoring burst by Lawrence.

Sandy finally got on the scoreboard when, after the Pioneers recovered a fumble, Andrew Funk scored on a 7-yard run to make the score 28-6.

But the Bowmen took off again. A 1-yard touchdown run by senior Nick Dickson gave Sherwood a 35-6 halftime lead.

The Bowmen then got a 63-yard third-quarter touchdown run by senior Mickey Schaefer and a 14-yard touchdown pass from senior quarterback Kevin Larkin to junior Andrew Ripley-Miles to push the margin to 55-6.

From there, Sherwood got a 9-yard touchdown run by junior Evan Kitto to close out the 55-20 victory.

The Bowmen, as a team, rushed for 582 yards on 40 carries in the win.

Reimer led the rushing attack with 141 yards on just five carries. Lawrence added 92 yards on seven carries, Schaefer had 63 yards on one carry and Shadbolt had 55 yards on two carries.

Larkin completed two of five pass attempts for 48 yards.

For the Sherwood defense, senior Ryan Pino had an interception. Bowmen 6-foot-11 senior defensive end Jordan Kurahara had a quarterback sack and he blocked a field goal attempt. Sophomore Emmett Floyd and senior Austin Goldstein each recovered a fumble and Schaefer had a quarterback sack.

Sherwood will finish its regular season schedule Friday when it hosts Rex Putnam in a NWOC game starting at 7 p.m. at Sherwood High School.
