HALSEY — The Oakland football team closed out the regular season with a 30-8 victory over Central Linn on Friday night in a Special District 3 game.

Corbin Picknell rushed for 201 yards on 13 carries and completed 5 of 7 passes for the Oakers (7-2, 4-1 SD3), who finished in second place behind Monroe in the league standings and advance to the Class 2A playoffs.

Wil Powell added 80 yards rushing and one TD and Easton West ran for 72 yards in the win. Dakota Percell and Vincente Alcantar caught TD passes and Jayden Henry had a 22-yard TD run.

The Oakers were missing three starters, including senior quarterback Conrad Jones (broken finger).

"A good bounce-back by the kids after last week (a 48-0 loss to Monroe)," Oakland coach Ben Lane said. "We had a great team effort defensively and played a lot of kids."

The Oakers will find out their playoff opponent this weekend.
