Marshfield vaults back to top spot in Class 4A football poll

Marshfield vaults back to top spot in Class 4A football poll

Jesuit's two-week reign in Class 4A high school football poll ended after the Crusaders committed four turnovers and barely beat Glencoe 27-24 on Friday night.

John Dailey kicked a 23-yard field goal with 1:48 left to play to give the Crusaders the win.

Marshfield reclaimed the top spot, which it had held for three weeks prior to Jesuit moving up, after an easy 50-16 win over South Eugene.

Marshfield received seven of the 15 first-place votes cast by sports writers and broadcasters around the state. The Pirates received 145 points, compared to 137 points and four top votes for Jesuit.

Roseburg remained No. — with four first-place votes and 125 points, while Tigard and Churchill held their spots at fifth and sixth. Gresham, despite improving to 6-0 with a a 35-28 win over Sandy, dropped from a sixth-place tie to No. 7.

Tigard defeated Dallas 44-39 behind 278 rushing yards and four touchdowns by Trevor Dyett. David Fry added 235 yards and a touchdown.

North Medford jumped two spots to eighth, while Grants Pass remains on the outside looking in at the top-10 in 12th.

Mountain View cracked the top 10 for the first time this season, entering at No. 10 after a 44-0 win over Crook County.

Perhaps the most surprising win of the week in 4A was produced by a team not in the rankings. Lincoln had to forfeit their four victories last Friday because they used an ineligible player. The Cardinals then went out and defeated Grant 61-35.

In the 3A ranks, Sisters remained No. — with 13 of the 14 first-place votes. Marist stayed No. 2, and Henley moved from No. 4 to No. — after a 14-0 win over previous No. 5 Mazama. The Vikings dropped to 10th.

All three of the top teams are 6-0.

Vale dropped one notch to fourth despite getting the other first-place vote. Ontario moved up a spot to No. 5.

Junction City, No. 2 the first four weeks of the season before losing to Marist Oct. 1, began climbing up in the rankings again. The Tigers pounded Glide 43-13 to move from No. 9 to No. 6.
