DUFUR -- Early in the first quarter, Josh Hiebenthal capped several tough rushes by Perrydale with a 9-yard touchdown to bring his squad within two points.
That's as close as the Pirates would get to the 2011 Class 1A state champs.
Camas Valley (1-0) held Perrydale scoreless the rest of the way in Friday's Dufur Classic contest as the Hornets pulled out a 38-6 victory in a rematch of last year's title game.
"We played pretty well defensively in the first half -- we controlled the line of scrimmage and defended the pass pretty well," Perrydale coach Dan Dugan said.
"We were doing a good job competing -- but it was definitely a tough battle. They just fly around the ball really well and they have great athletes with great speed."
Hiebenthal led the Pirates on the ground with 84 yards rushing, Justin Cruickshank added 54 yards and Cody Halverson had 45.
In the air, Cruickshank was 5-for-7 for 47 yards.
YEAGER LEADS MOUNTS:
Tristan Yeager provided plenty of offensive spark in what was a tough setback for the Falls City football team, which fell to Siletz Valley Friday, 80-20. Yeager scored all three Mountaineer touchdowns on three kickoff returns of 80, 80 and 70 yards. "They sure as heck knew who was taking the kick returns by the end of the night," Falls City coach Art Houghtaling said. "He's figured out that if he gets in the open field, he's a threat -- that's definitely a bright spot for us."
FALLS CITY VOLLEYBALL SQUAD A WINNER:
The Mountaineers picked up their first victory of the season Friday with a four-set win over Siletz Valley, 25-14, 18-25, 25-18 and 25-13. Desiree Johnson served 12 straight points and Destiny Wyatt tabbed two kills in the fourth set to lead Falls City, which is set to host Casco League foe Perrydale Thursday. Match time is set for 5:30 p.m.
CENTRAL VOLLEYBALL FALLS:
The Central volleyball squad dropped its first match of the season Thursday in a five-set loss to Yamhill-Carlton; 23-25, 25-12, 25-22, 22-25, and 15-11.
