Bandon won its annual showcase game Friday night, beating Riddle 58-0 in the Cranberry Bowl.
“It was a fun game,” first-year Bandon head coach Aaron Freitag said. “The kids had a blast. It was an all-around good game, and good for morale.”
Senior twins Darian and Donavin Phommaphat both had big nights for the Tigers as Bandon got its first win of the season.
Darian Phommaphat scored on a 40-yard run on Bandon’s first offensive play and the Tigers were off and running. His brother scored the next three touchdowns on runs of 22 and 61 yards sandwiched around a 43-yard pass from Braydon Freitag.
After a short scoring run by Freitag, Darian Phommaphat had a 45-yard scoring run.
The Tigers went with primarily their junior varsity kids from there, with Wyatt Dyer scoring on an 8-yard run and connecting with Trei Gore on a 17-yard pass for the final score.
“My JV kids did a great job,” Aaaron Freitag said. “I’m really happy with our young guys — and our whole team.”
That it was the Cranberry Bowl made it even more special.
“For the kids that it was the first Cranberry Bowl, I told them, ‘You always remember your Cranberry Bowls,’” Freitag said.
He made the team’s three seniors — the twins and Brennan Boston — captains for the game.
“It was pretty special for them,” he said.
Coquille 53, Myrtle Point 13: The Red Devils got three touchdowns each by Henry Scolari and Cody Deck and beat the host Bobcats.
Five of Coquille’s touchdowns came on runs of at least 27 yards, including one by Caiden Yates.
“Cody and Henry had great nights running the ball in the first half,” Coquille coach David Thomason said. “It was our 20th regular-season victory in a row. That’s something that’s pretty cool to think about.”
Cody Sears and Isaac Warner scored the touchdowns for Myrtle Point.
Amity 35, Reedsport 13: The Warriors capitalized on five Reedsport turnovers to beat the host Brave.
Reedsport lost four fumbles, one recovered for a touchdown by Seth Valencia, and also threw an interception.
Amity built a 35-0 lead on touchdown runs by Jonathan Mather, Brian Hatch and Sam White and a touchdown catch by Tommy Jackson, plus Valencia’s fumble recovery.
Reedsport’s scores came on a 2-yard pass from Marc Chaney to Korde Parmenter and a long interception return by Tanner Eckley.
Pleasant Hill 45, Siuslaw 18: The Vikings led twice in the first quarter before the Billies pulled away for the win in Florence.
Jared Brandt had a touchdown run and a touchdown pass to Trent Reavis and Quincy Rusk also scored for Siuslaw. But the Billies took control behind three touchdown passes and a scoring run from Wyatt Craig.
Cody Morrell had an 85-yard kickoff return after Siuslaw’s first touchdown and also scored on a touchdown run. Collin Good had both a touchdown reception and a touchdown run.
Brandt completed 20 of 31 passes for 221 yards and Reavis had eight catches for 84 yards for the Vikings.
