Reedsport’s football season came to an end Friday night when the Brave fell to the powerful Santiam Wolverines 47-0 in the first round of the Class 2A playoffs.

Santiam bottled up Reedsport’s offense the whole night and converted enough scoring opportunities to pull away from the Brave.

Santiam had six touchdowns and converted two-point conversions after all but the last of them. The Wolverines led 8-0 after the first quarter, 32-0 at halftime and 48-0 through three quarters.

Brody Davidson had touchdown runs of 14, 43 and 45 yards for Santiam. Colin Thurston, Trevor Tinney and Jordan Lanham also had touchdowns.

The best highlight for the Brave was an interception by Nick Glover.

The loss ended a good season for Reedsport, which went 4-1 in the Sunset Conference and won six games in all. Reedsport had four shutouts during the season.

Santiam visits Grant Union in the Class 2A quarterfinals on Saturday.

All three Sunset Conference teams in the playoffs lost on the opening weekend.

Gold Beach fell to Oakland 45-14. Bandon lost to Knappa 62-32.

In all, 14 of the 19 players who finished the season for Reedsport were not seniors, meaning the Brave should have a strong core heading into next season.
