Powder Valley doubles up Leopards

It’s been awhile since Powder Valley defeated Cove in an Old Oregon League football game.

The Badgers finally accomplished that fete last weekend, but it took almost 18 hours to do so.

The game kicked off at 7 p.m. Friday at Powder Valley, but the final score was not official until Saturday afternoon.

In between, a power outage that hit portions of Baker and Union counties shut the game down overnight.

Powder Valley was leading 40-22 with 50 seconds left in the game Friday evening when the lights went out. Cove coaches declined to concede at that and game officials decided to pick the game up Saturday afternoon at Powder.

Powder Valley stopped Cove’s drive then knelt down on a knee to let the remaining time run out Saturday.

“The kids did a great job of getting up this week for a tough Cove team,” said Powder coach Dan Townsend.

“This win was huge for us. Finally beating a Cove team for the first time in a long time.”

Powder Valley led 20-14 at halftime, and at the end of the third quarter.

The Badgers increased their lead to 34-14 with 11 minutes left, and 40-22 with 4:38 remaining.

“The boys played their best overall game in a long time,” Townsend said.

“Defensively we played very tough football. Two interceptions and two forced fumbles were huge for us.”

Chace Dixon and Shae Wendt had the interceptions.

“We did a great job of staying aggressive and sticking with our responsibilities the entire game,”

Townsend said the defensive front of Dixon, Tyler Robinson and Heith Browne allowed linebacker Quin Stephens to make 17 tackles, gain two sacks and force a fumble. Townsend said it was the seventh straight game Stephens has had at least 14 tackles.

Offensively, Colton Eubanks had his fifth straight game of more than 200 yards rushing, carrying 24 times for 273 yards and four touchdowns.

Eubanks has run for almost 1,800 yards and scored 25 touchdowns.

Stephens added 50 yards and a touchdown on 15 carries.

Dixon was 11-of-21 passing for 158 yards and a score.

Robinson had six catches for 100 yards and the TD.
