Myrtle Point was part of history Friday night, but the game didn’t end the way the Bobcats had hoped.

The combined Myrtle Point-Powers football squad fell to traditional eight-man powerhouse Camas Valley 38-6 in the first-ever night game for the Hornets in their stadium, which had lights installed in preparation for this season.

The Bobcats kept the game relatively close for three quarters before the Hornets scored 20 points in the fourth to pull away.

James Standley scored on a 28-yard run in the first quarter and Jared Standley had TD runs of 23 and 6 yards in the second to give the Hornets an 18-0 halftime lead.

Myrtle Point’s Nate Little caught a 26-yard TD pass from Logan Backman in the third, but the Hornets added TDs in the fourth quarter by both Standleys and Seth Lamell to pull away.

Myrtle Point, which fell to 1-2 on the season, hosts Glendale this Friday.
