King's Way tops Badgers

DUFUR — King’s Way Christian of Vancouver, Wash., doubled up Powder Valley 72-36 in the opening round of the Dufur Classic football series Friday afternoon.

“Offensively, we played well for the majority of the game,” said Powder Valley coach Dan Townsend.

“But in the second half we turned the ball over four times.”

Townsend said King’s Way scored two touchdowns in the final two minutes as results of those turnovers.

“Without those scores it’s a three-score game,” Townsend said.

King’s Way was led by one of Washington state’s top Class 1A players, Jay Becker, who finished with more than 250 yards rushing and 200 yards passing.

Colton Eubanks led Powder Valley with 324 yards rushing on 28 carries. He scored three touchdowns.

“Colton did a great job following his blocks and being patent in the backfield,” Townsend said.

“Our offenisve line did a great job of maintaining their blocks, and opening things up.”

Quinn Stephens added 61 yards rushing on 13 carries and caught a 60-yard touchdown pass from Chace Dixon.

“Once Chace got comfortable in the pocket he did a good job of working through his progressions and finding the open receiver in the second half,” Townsend said.

Dixon through for 101 yards.

“Defensively we struggled containing Becker. He’s fast and strong, and makes you miss if you are not disciplined on defense,” Townsend said.

Because of injuries, Townsend said the Badgers had to play four freshmen on both sides of the ball.

“Once they got rid of nerves they did a good job for us,” he said.
