Game: Scramble with Tie

“Any contribution you can af-
ford will be gladly appreciated,”
“The skills learned at this
competitive level for these gift-
ed athletes cannot otherwise be
learned at the local level,” he
Hoover said he was ap-
proached by coaches in Eugene
and says the overall goal was to
get young athletes from Oregon
more exposure. Hoover said that
the coaches selected the top fi ve
players from the area.
“There was no offi cial tryout;
if more kids wanted to go then
we would probably have to host
a tryout, but not many can go,”
The team had its fi rst practice
on Monday night and will be
working throughout the week to
prepare for the tournament.
Upon arrival, each team will
be placed into a bracket system
and put up against teams deter-
mined by an exclusive software
program. The teams enter a

sparked when Blake Sentman
threw a short eight-yard pass to
senior Zane Levings, shrinking
the defi cit to four points. The
Lions were able to get the ball
back but were forced to punt,
which is when disaster struck.
Cottage Grove’s punt was
blocked, and Astoria recovered
the ball at the Lions’ fi ve-yard
line. Astoria’s Tyler Lyngstad
ran the ball in from four yards
out to once again make it a two-
score game for the Lions.
After the Fishermen touch-
down, Sentman and his offense
responded with a 25-yard touch-
down pass to Kory Parent. A
two point conversion made it a
three-point game, 21-18.
After the touchdown, Head
Coach Gary Roberts said that
he got the feeling Astoria’s team
was beginning to get winded,
and that his team still had a lot
of fi ght left in them.
The Lions were able to force
Astoria to punt, but Cottage
Grove was stopped once again
on fourth down.
But it still wasn’t over.
The Fishermen lost 14 yards
on two plays and then received a
personal foul due to a player re-
moving his helmet before reach-
ing the sideline. This forced As-
toria to punt, and the Lions got
the ball back at their own 35
with 2:45 left in the game.
Hayden Glenn caught a nine-
yard pass from Sentman and
began an offensive roll. Lev-
ings later managed an 18-yard
run to the Fishermen 37. Cot-
tage Grove stalled for a bit and
was put in a tough fourth-down
situation. Sentman hit Jacob
Woods, who dragged his feet
for a fi rst-down reception. The
very next play, Sentman threw it
back to Woods on a short pass
toward the sideline, but then he
spun away from a tackle and
dodged one more to run cleanly
into the endzone, giving the Li-
ons a four-point lead, their fi rst
of the night.
But it was going to be up to
the Cottage Grove defense to
close the game, as Astoria was
getting the ball back with 1:16
remaining and two timeouts.
Fishermen quarterback Fridt-
jof Fremstad converted twice on
fourth-down plays and complet-
ed a 14-yard pass to put the ball
at the Lions’ 16-yard line with
one second left.
Fremstad dodged two Lion
defenders and had what seemed
like an open fi eld, but the senior
quarterback’s helmet came off,
and by rule, the play was called
dead and the game was over.
Despite the lucky play, this
game proved that Cottage Grove
can overcome high-pressure sit-
uations and make clutch plays
when it really counts. The vic-
tory sends the team to a semifi -
nal match against Cascade. The
game takes place at Hillsboro
Stadium on Nov. 19 at 5:30
