GOLD BEACH — Andrew Harrington was a one-man wrecking crew for the Oakland football team Friday night.

Harrington, a senior, rushed for 281 yards and five touchdowns, and added 67 yards passing as the No. 11 Oakers rolled past No. 6 Gold Beach, 45-14, Friday night in an OSAA Class 2A first-round playoff game.

"The key was our kids came out and out-physicaled them," said Oakland coach Ben Lane. "We controlled the line and they didn't have an answer for the run. Andrew (Harrington) did what we expected him to do and did a great job."

Junior Bryan Lehman also turned in a 100-yard rushing game for the Oakers (5-3), running for 107 yards on 11 carries. Sophomore Chandler Miller caught a 5-yard TD pass from Dylan Baimbridge. Senior Reese Carson capped the scoring with a 54-yard interception return for a touchdown in the fourth quarter.

The Oakers led 14-0 at halftime.

Oakland will meet the winner of Saturday's game between No. 14 Bandon and No. 3 Knappa in the quarterfinals.
