DAYS CREEK — The Camas Valley Hornets took care of business in their Special District 2 West eight-man football opener on Friday.
Jared Hunt and River Wolfe combined for seven rushing touchdowns as the Hornets rolled to a 66-14 victory over Days Creek at the Wolves’ field.
Camas Valley (3-0, 1-0 SD2W), which is ranked No. 6 in the OSAAtoday Class 1A coaches’ poll, controlled the line of scrimmage and handed the Wolves (3-1, 0-1) their first loss of the season.
“I was happy with our first, third and fourth quarters,” Camas Valley coach Keri Ewing said. “I liked the way our offense got going. River (Wolfe) had a huge game.”
The Hornets scored on their opening possession, driving 65 yards in three plays. Sophomore quarterback Jared Standley capped the march with a 1-yard touchdown run with 11:26 left in the first quarter.
After the C.V. defense forced Days Creek to punt, Wolfe finished off an 80-yard drive with a 9-yard run with 8:34 remaining.
Lineman Max Brown set up the Hornets’ next touchdown, recovering a bad snap at the Days Creek 13. Hunt scored on a 12-yard run to make it 20-0 with 1:40 to go in the period.
Hunt ran it in from the 3 with 52 seconds left and Camas Valley led 28-0 at halftime.
Cade Martin scored both Days Creek touchdowns, catching passes of 47 and 21 yards from quarterback Gerritt Wentland. Martin also intercepted a pass.
“They (the Hornets) were everything we thought,” Days Creek coach David Hunt said. “We made them work for a while, then they capitalized on our mistakes. Our kids played hard, but we just wore out. We need to continue to get better.”
Camas Valley outgained D.C. 465-265, 375 yards coming on the ground. Jared Hunt was the top rusher with 148 yards on 12 carries and Wolfe ran seven times for 137 yards. Tristan Casteel caught six passes for 82 yards.
Wentland completed 7 of 12 passes for 173 yards. Cauy Jackson was the leading rusher for the Wolves, gaining 57 yards on 10 carries. Martin finished with three receptions for 106 yards.
