In a decidedly collegiate atmosphere at Doc Harris Stadium Saturday, Camas rode the excitement from a huge crowd to a 41-0 win over Eastmont. It was the first round of the State 4A playoffs. NCWLIFE Channel Sports Director Eric Granstrom was there and has the story…
After the pomp and circumstance, Camas quarterback Blake Ascuitto tossed a 48-yard touchdown pass to tight end Jackson Clemmer to put the Papermakers up 7-nothing.
After a three and out by Eastmont, Camas had the ball at the Wildcat 30-yard line when Caleb Thomas came up with a fumble.
Eastmont’s offense could not convert, however and Camas scored quickly on a 5-play, 62-yard drive capped by a 1-yard touchdown run by Jacques Badolato-Birdsell. That gave the Papermakers a 13-0 lead.
This got a little worse from there as Austin Ruffins fumbled the ball, giving Camas a short field in which to work as Gabe Guo found the end zone to put the home team up 20-nothing.
The wheels continued to wobble when Hunter Ruhl dropped back to punt and Camas got through and blocked it at the Eastmont 14-yard line.
Badolato-Birdsells made quick work of it, scoring on the next play to make it 27-nothing.
Keys breathes life with big kickoff return
Corbin Keys gave Eastmont a little life with a great kickoff return out past midfield. But the Wildcats couldn’t capitalize on the field position.
Next, Camas went on an 8-play, 61-yard drive capped by a 13-yard touchdown pass from Ascuitto to Clemmer. That put the Papermakers up 34-0 at half.
The only highlight for Eastmont in the second half was late in the third quarter. The defense got pressure on Ascuitto, chasing him out of the pocket with his throw being intercepted by Oscar Calvillo.
The Papermakers would score once more in the fourth quarter and go on for the 41-nothing victory. Coach Michael Don was thankful his seniors who leave the program in good hands.
Adrian Vivanco came off the bench and led Eastmont with 93-yards rushing. Carson Everhart was 5-of-15 for 39-yards and an interception. Camas outgained Eastmont 389-yards to 203. The Papermakers will next face Puyallup in the quarterfinals.
