Five TD passes from Loss in win over Rainier

Track-meet game has five scores of over 60 yards


by: JOHN BREWINGTON - A swarm of Indian defenders tackle the ball carrier during Scappoose's 55-32 victory over Rainier on Friday night. Scappoose moves to 3-0 this season, and goes back on the road in week four.

For the second time this season, Scappoose opened up the scorebook in the first few seconds of the game. Against Rainier, it was a 60 yard pass from senior Taylor Loss to Jacob Wendelschafer on the first play from scrimmage. Later in the first, Loss hit senior receiver Justice Oman for an 81 yard touchdown, putting the Indians up 14-0 in the first quarter on their way to a 55-32 track meet of a victory at home.

Taylor Loss continued his brilliant season at quarterback with five touchdown passes and another score on the ground. Three of his five TD passes were for 60 yards or more. The Indians got another long score from Lionel Sandoval, who scored from 95 yards out on a lateral mid way through the second quarter. Rainier, not to be left out, got a 64 yard run from Nick Hanks in the second half.

The second quarter featured five touchdowns. Rainier got on the board early in the period when quarterback Wes Tripp found Jordan Brittan for a four yard touchdown reception. Scappoose would score the next two before Tripp responded with a six yard runto make it 28-12. Loss' pass to David Krupsky gave the Indians a 12 point lead at the break.

The third quarter saw Loss score his only rushing touchdown so far this season on a short, one yard run. Rainier scored again in the quarter, but by the time the period was up, the Indians were leading 48-18. The Columbians scored a pair of touchdowns in the fourth, and Loss hit Nick Rust for his second longest passing play of the day – 78 yards to the house.

The win gives the Indians a ton of momentum heading into week four, when they will travel to Independence to face Central.

Note: Elanor Jones was 4/4 on extra points for Scappoose.
