Skyhawks fly past Comets in play-in

BEAVERTON — Missed opportunities and an inconsistent effort spelled the end of the Crater football team's season on Friday.

The Comets settled for a pair of Austin Siegel field goals after driving into the red zone and stalled out in the second half of a 38-20 loss to Southridge in a Class 6A play-in game.

Kyle Grimes rushed for three touchdowns and finished with 154 yards for the Skyhawks, who led 26-13 at halftime.

Sophomore quarterback Chase Mackey was a bright spot for Crater, rushing for 170 yards on 16 carries after replacing starter Tyler Turituri. Turituri left the game after playing just two series. Mackey ran in a 71-yard score in the final quarter.

Having to settle for a pair of field goals — one the result of a costly penalty — slowed the Comets' progress in the first half.

"We started out bad," Crater head coach John Beck said. "If we get those scores in there, we are right in there. You can't settle for three instead of seven all the time."

Southridge got on the scoreboard first when Crater turned the ball over on downs at the Skyhawks' 37-yard line in the first quarter. Using 14 plays, the home team eventually scored from the 1-yard line. Turituri threw an interception on the next possession, which led to Grimes' second score of the night.

Derrik Turituri caught a 26-yard touchdown pass from Mackey in the second quarter after a Corey Wynant interception to cut Southridge's lead to 19-13.

But the Skyhawks (4-6) had a response, scoring three straight touchdowns to take over.

Brandon McFarland had 15 carries for 63 yards for Crater (2-8), which lost its final eight games of the season.

MARIST 50, EAGLE POINT 6 — At Eugene, Eagle Point played a physical game against the state's second-ranked Class 5A team, but Marist was too athletic and skilled in the end as the Eagles were derailed in the second round of the 5A play-in games at Willamette High.

Quarterback Shane Bluhm rushed for 161 yards on 14 carries and ripped off an 80-yard touchdown run for the Eagles (5-5) in the first quarter to cut the Spartans' lead to 14-6. But, led by quarterback Logan Silver, Marist responded with 36 unanswered points.
