POWERS 46, BUTTE FALLS 6-- At Butte Falls, not many teams have gone the distance with the Powers Cruisers in recent years.
But the young Loggers managed to hang around until the bitter end, avoiding the 45-point knockout Powers usually delivers Skyline A League opponents.

Powers led 34-0 at the half before Butte Falls got on the scoreboard with a 66-yard pass and run from Travis Smeltz to Tyler Smith. Smeltz finished 20 of 35 for 281 yards and one interception.

ELKTON 42, PROSPECT 26-- At Prospect, Elkton charged back from a 26-0 deficit after one quarter behind the sterling play of quarterback Seth Williamson and a running attack that improved after a couple of Cougar linebackers were injured.
Prospect's prospects diminished when linebackers D.J. Wood and Zack Coble left the game with injuries. Wood returned, Coble didn't, said coach Mike Gordon, adding that Elkton rallied by ramming it down our throats.
The Elks also benefitted from four Prospect interceptions.
The Cougars are 1-1 in the Skyline A League, 1-2 overall.
