You might not recognize the power rankings this week after a busy last week rearranged the teams a whole lot. Among the action were the efforts of Wilsonville's senior Nathan Overholt, an offensive menace who scored seven total TDs.
Sunset not only got the result it was looking for last game, but the team outscored its opponent South Salem in every quarter. Sunset blew past South Salem 36 - 3. Sunset did have the odds in its favor, but the team did even better than the MaxPreps state rankings indicated. Thanks to its success, Sunset cracked into the power rankings and now occupies the 25th spot.
Can't Touch This
Mountain View's 48 - 33 win over Sandy last week had a lot to do with the leadership of senior Jonas Larson. Larson earned four touchdowns and 276 yards rushing the ball. That performance made Larson one of the best players in the power rankings last week.
This Week's Big Showdown
One of the hottest tickets last week involved the clash between Central Catholic (ranked 10th in OR) and Eastside Catholic (ranked 2nd in WA). Central Catholic has to be hurting after a devastating 49 - 26 defeat at the hands of Eastside Catholic. Central Catholic lost a lot of ground in this match: the team forfeited five spots in the power rankings.
No Stoppin 'Em
107. That was the combined point total for Wilsonville and Churchill when they went head to head last week, and it set the benchmark for all power ranking teams. Wilsonville snuck past Churchill with a 57 - 50 victory. Senior Nathan Overholt was a big part of the win as his strong performance led the charge (he tossed the ball for 454 yards and six TDs).
