After not scoring in the third quarter, Monte opened up the lead with a pair of touchdowns in the fourth, the first a 35-yard TD catch by Ames from McElravy followed by a 6-yard scoring run by running back Gabe Bodwell.

Ames had five receptions for 105 yards as Monte gained 373 total yards of offense in the game.

The Montesano defense — led by the play of linebackers Jaxson Wilson and Mateo Sanchez — held Shelton (3-2) to 256 yards of offense.

The Bulldogs were hampered by penalties for the second week in a row, getting flagged 15 times for 120 yards.

“It was a very physical game. We had a lot of penalties tonight, which slowed us down a bit, but we overcame a lot of adversity,” Montesano head coach Terry Jensen said. ” I’m very proud of our kids. Shelton is a really physical football team and I thought our kids answered the call there. … Really proud of the grit and effort our kids had tonight.”

Montesano plays top-ranked Eatonville at 7 p.m. on Friday at Eatonville High School.

Aberdeen 24, Black Hills 14

Despite missing several key players, Aberdeen executed on offense en route to a hard-fought 24-14 win on Friday at Stewart Field in Aberdeen.

The Bobcats (3-2, 2-0 2A Evergreen) entered the game without senior quarterback Kale Goings (injury) and senior running back Jeremy Sawyer (suspension) and received more bad news as junior lineman Paul Baltazar — who had been nursing an injured arm — had to leave the game due to an injury to his leg suffered on the second play of the game.

Aberdeen responded by proceeding to rush for 302 yards as a team and to eat up large swaths of game clock.

Junior running back Aidan Watkins rushed for 199 yards on 28 carries and scored touchdowns on runs in the first and fourth quarters.

Watkins also caught a 12-yard TD pass from junior quarterback Grady Springer, who rushed for 92 yards in the game.

Aberdeen’s defense held Black Hills (3-2, 1-2) to just 21 plays on offense and got a boost from linebacker Marcus Hale, who intercepted a pass and returned it 65 yards to set up a Bobcats touchdown.

Aberdeen had three touchdown plays called back on penalties in the first half, leaving head coach Todd Bridge to feel as though his team left points on the field at halftime.

“We kind of walked off the field feeling like we left points off the scoreboard,” he said before commending his team for stepping up on homecoming night. “The resiliency level of our players tonight was absolutely amazing. … Our staff did a fabulous job of coaching tonight.”

Aberdeen plays at perennial 2A champion Tumwater at 7 p.m. on Friday.

Raymond-South Bend 20, Forks 7

Raymond-South Bend remained undefeated with a 20-7 win over Forks on Friday in Forks.

The Ravens (5-0, 2-0 2B Pacific-Coastal) won with defense against the Spartans (2-1, 1-1) in a game RSB head coach Luke Abbott said was a very physical matchup.

“Hats off to Forks. They are a very physical team. They are downhill, smash-mouth football. They are coming right at you and don’t care if you know it,” he said. “We did a decent job on the defensive side of the ball. … We had a couple of defensive stops, got a couple of turnovers and a couple of fumble recoveries, which was great.”

RSB, which has feasted off quick-hitting, big-scoring plays this season, was relatively kept in check in scoring a season-low in points.

For the third week in a row, RSB’s defense held an opponent to under 10 points in a game.

RSB got two scoring runs from Austin Snodgrass — of 10 and 29 yards — and a 33-yard TD run from running back Ferrill Johnson.

Johnson led RSB with 117 yards on 15 carries.

Abbott said miscues on the offensive end kept the Ravens from adding to their total score.

“We made too many mistakes. We fumbled the ball and couldn’t finish some drives and those are problems that we need to address,” he said. “But I’m still happy with the win. … This game showed what we need to do to get better in order to compete at a very high level.”

RSB hosts Rainier at 7 p.m. on Friday at Raymond High School.

Pe Ell-Willapa Valley 41, Morton-White Pass 8

Pe Ell-Willapa Valley had this one wrapped up early, blasting Morton-White Pass for a 41-8 win on Friday at White Pass High School.

PWV (2-3, 2-1 2B Coastal) hammered MWP (2-1, 1-1) for 41 points in the first half, led by running back Blake Howard’s 120 yards and three touchdowns.

The Titans rushed for 274 yards in the game and scored a special teams touchdown when Garrett Keeton blocked a punt and returned it 14 yards for a touchdown for a 27-0 lead at the end of the first quarter.

Howard scored on two 1-yard runs and a 10-yarder early in the second quarter.

PWV also got touchdowns when quarterback Kolten Fluke hit receiver Derek Fluke for a 34-yard score and a 13-yard TD run from Wil Clements.

Kolten Fluke and Clements led PWV in tackling with eight and six tackles, respectively, and Cody Strozyk rushed for 62 yards on seven carries in the game.

Ocosta 55, Chief Leschi 42

Ocosta rushed for more than 500 yards en route to a 55-42 over Chief Leschi in an 8-man football game on Friday in Westport.

The Wildcats (3-1, 1-0 2B Central) were led by the dynamic duo of Andrew Martin (19 carries, 192 yards, 2 TD) and Josh Figueroa (14 carries, 149 yards, 3 TD), who combined for five touchdowns and nearly 350 rushing yards.

Ocosta’s Kevin Agramon (13 carries, 95 yards, TD) and Tarren Lewis (8 carries, 73 yards, TD) also contributed to a Wildcats offense.

Ocosta’s offensive line — led by Bryan Ceja, Mark Sevilla and Shaheed Lewis — helped the Wildcats rush for 518 yards on 56 carries for an average of 9.3 yards per carry.

Davonte Garrett added a 67-yard kickoff return for a touchdown. The Wildcats defense was led by Aiden Davis (10 tackles, INT), Gage Grisby (4 sacks) and Figueroa (1 caused fumble).

Chief Leschi (3-2, 1-1) entered the game averaging 74 points per 8-man football contest.

Ocosta led 21-12 at the half but exploded for 34 points over the final two quarters of the game.

Lake Quinault 61, WA School for Deaf 0

Lake Quinault remained undefeated on the season with a 61-0 throttling over the Washington School for the Deaf in a 6-man contest on Thursday in Vancouver.

The Elks (4-0) first team did the damage in the first half, scoring 40 points led by two touchdowns apiece from Charles Gumecindo and Cody Perry.

In the second half, Lake Quinault’s second stringers scored 21 points, including an interception return for a touchdown by Cristo Maldonado in the fourth quarter.

The Elks’ Grady Fowler, Luis Ferris and Adan Morfin also scored a touchdown in the rout.

Notably absent from the game was starter Jessy Ferry, who was out with a minor injury and is expected to be available for next week’s game against Wishkah Valley.

“We have depth now,” Elks head coach Melvyn Houtz said. “I had to sit (Ferry) and we still rolled.”

Lake Quinault has two more games on its regular-season schedule and expects to be in the hunt for an 8-man title this season.

“We are always shooting higher and higher,” Houtz said. “This team’s goal is to make noise in the 8-man playoff bracket. … It’s exciting. The town is abuzz over Lake Quinault football and it’s great to see the stands full again.”

Northwest Christian 55, Wishkah Valley 19

Too many mistakes proved costly for Wishkah Valley as the Loggers fell to Northwest Christian 55-19 on Saturday at Wishkah Valley High School

The Loggers (1-3, 1-2 1B Coastal 8-man) were plagued by bad snaps, missed tackles and assignments and mistakes on special teams that turned a 14-6 deficit at the end of the first quarter into a 55-6 rout by the start of the final period.

NWC (2-2, 1-0) outscored Wishkah 28-0 in the second quarter to put the game out of reach by halftime.

The Wolverines recovered two onside kicks and one deep kickoff in the game.

“Offensively we played OK, but some bad snaps — including one that was lost to NWC — hurt us early in the game. Defensively, missed tackles and coverages were a big problem,” Wishkah assistant coach Eric Erickson said. “We just couldn’t give our offense enough chances to keep up.”

Wishkah quarterback Matthew Erickson went 11-for-19 for 194 yards and three touchdowns in the game, his favorite targets being Enrique Guzman (4 receptions, 96 yards, TD) and William Boggs (5 rec., 56 yds., 2 TD).

Aiden Wiedenmann led the Loggers defense with 8.5 tackles and a fumble recovery.

Wishkah is scheduled to host Mary M. Knight at 7 p.m. on Friday.
