No. 4 Lake Oswego completed the nonleague portion of its schedule Thursday with a 4-0 record, wrapping it up with a businesslike 35-7 home win over previously unbeaten McMinnville.
But longtime Lakers coach Steve Coury is under no illusions about what lies ahead in the rugged 6A Three Rivers League, starting with a home game against top-ranked and reigning state champion West Linn. TRL teams went 24-0 in nonleague play.
“We've played the schedule that's been good for us,” Coury said. “It's not that we haven't played decent teams, it's just that our league is ridiculous. You get here, all of the sudden it's a different game.”
The Lakers tuned up by jumping all over McMinnville. They scored on their first three possessions to lead 21-0 and coasted past the Grizzlies (3-1).
Once again, Lake Oswego set the tone with its running game, powered by a line led by senior tackles Tobia Tagliabue and Hunter Kavanaugh. Sophomore LaMarcus Bell and senior Zavier Russell each rushed for two touchdowns and junior quarterback Liam Davis ran for a score.
The 5-foot-10, 175-pound Bell is having a breakout season. He has rushed for 522 yards and four touchdowns, averaging 7.7 yards per carry.
“He's not a workhorse, getting 30 carries,” Coury said. “He's not there yet, but he's special, the things he can do. He's got some skills. I'm excited about him for the future.”
Coury said Bell reminds him of former Lakers star tailback Casey Filkins, now playing at Stanford.
“He's got a little bit of Filkins in him,” Coury said. “He's a quick-twitch guy. He's got explosion when he sees the hole. He's got really good vision like Casey had. Hard to compare anyone to Casey, but in the early stages as a young guy, he's got skill levels that are comparable.”
At 5-10, 210, Russell provides a different dimension.
“He's a bruiser kid,” Coury said. “He's got great vision and explodes through the line of scrimmage.”
Davis has taken over at quarterback after sharing time early in the season with senior Mason Silbaugh. Davis has been efficient, completing 45 of 66 passes for 687 yards and seven touchdowns with one interception and running for five scores.
“The second game, he stepped up and got on a little bit of a roll,” Coury said. “He's been doing well ever since.”
Saxons go to 4-0
No. 9 South Salem picked up an important road win in 6A Special District 1 by cruising past South Medford 45-21 in a battle of unbeaten teams.
The Saxons (4-0, 2-0) avenged last year's 48-35 home loss to the Panthers, their only regular-season setback.
“That might have changed things last year because we wouldn't have been on the road in Week 1 of the playoffs,” South Salem coach Scott Dufault said. “I thought it was a nice hurdle to get over. … Our kids saw it as a pretty important game.”
South Salem took control in the first quarter when senior quarterback Athan Palmateer threw touchdown passes to seniors Eli Johnson and Esteban Mendez. Senior Jacob Nemecek intercepted a screen pass and ran 48 yards for a touchdown in the second quarter for the Saxons, who led 24-7 at half.
Palmateer threw another touchdown strike to Johnson in the second half and finished 10 of 27 for 195 yards. He was able to escape from pressure and make the Panthers pay, scrambling for 125 yards on eight carries.
Through four games, Palmateer (6-2, 200) has completed 67.3 percent of his passes for 1,159 yards and 14 touchdowns and no interceptions. He also has rushed for 295 yards and four scores.
South Salem's defense held South Medford's rushing attack, which averaged 323 yards in the first three games, to a season-low 250 yards. Dufault credited senior defensive ends Hatimu Letisi and Divine Ibe for setting the edge.
“We tackled in packs,” Dufault said of his defense, which got two interceptions from Nemecek.
It was the third consecutive road game for the Saxons, who also made a long trip to Southern Oregon last week to play Grants Pass.
“Doing it two weeks in a row is a really good job by my kids,” Dufault said. “That's a hard thing to ask kids at any level. I thought they were focused. They just got on the bus, went down and played hard.”
South Salem is tied for first place with North Medford (3-1, 2-0) and Sheldon (2-2, 2-0) in what appears to be a wide open SD1.
Hews leads West Albany
Behind senior quarterback Lukas Hews, No. 4 West Albany is looking like a team to be reckoned with in 5A.
The Bulldogs, the highest-scoring team in 5A at 54.8 points per game, improved to 4-0 on Friday with a 42-15 win at Dallas.
Once again, it was the 6-3, 190-pound Hews leading the way. He completed 11 of 14 passes for 213 yards and two touchdowns and rushed for two scores.
For the season, Hews has completed 69.0 percent of his passes for 1,077 yards and 12 touchdowns with no interceptions and rushed for 160 yards and eight scores.
“He has just completely elevated his play,” West Albany coach Brian Mehl said of the second-year starter. “Take his best game last year, and he's doing that every single game and more. He understands that he's got good players to get the ball to. We're going to need him to continue to play at that level.”
Hews is working the ball around. Junior receiver Austin Simmons has 19 catches for 363 yards and five touchdowns. Senior slot Jarron Huebner, who showed his versatility Friday by rushing for 116 yards on 16 carries, has 16 catches for 229 yards and two touchdowns. Junior Tyler Hart-McNally leads the team in rushing (214 yards) and has two touchdown catches.
But the strong-armed Hews is making it all go in the team's spread offense.
“He has all that physical ability, runs well,” Mehl said. “But it's probably the stuff that to the common eye, people don't see. It's his understanding and knowledge.”
Mehl said Hews learned from “taking some lumps” last season, when the Bulldogs finished 5-4 and lost in the first round of the state playoffs.
“He's really, really dialed in,” Mehl said. “He has great feel and command of our vision of an offense. He's been really, really effective and efficient.”
In Friday's win, the Bulldogs also got a 35-yard interception return for a touchdown from junior Craig Maynard. The win was especially gratifying considering West Albany lost at home to the Dragons 26-21 last year.
“Our offense right away was really efficient,” Mehl said. “Defensively, we kind of settled in and played much better ball. Dallas had our full attention, for sure. Last year, they out-executed us.”
No. 2 Henley prevails
In a game that featured eight turnovers, No. 2 Henley fought back from a two-touchdown deficit to beat No. 7 Cascade 33-21 as the unbeaten 4A teams collided in a nonleague game Friday in Turner.
Cascade (3-1) took advantage of two fumble recoveries to build a 14-0 lead, but Henley (4-0) capitalized on the Cougars' miscues to pull ahead 26-14.
Senior Logan Whitlock rushed for 145 yards and four touchdowns on 36 carries for the Hornets, who benefited from three fumble recoveries and two interceptions.
"That was huge. They were putting it on us in the first half,” Whitlock said. “We came out flat in the first half and they came out excited. It all ties back to the love that we have for each other. When we play together there's nothing that can stop us.”
Cascade senior Nolan Abrams scored on the first play of the fourth quarter to cut the lead to 26-21. The Cougars had a chance to take the lead, but a Whitlock interception set up his fourth touchdown run of the night, making it 33-21.
Henley handed Cascade its first loss under new coach Shane Hedrick.
"I'm really proud of my team. I'm really proud of how we stepped up,” said Cascade junior Hunter Anundi, who had nine catches for 108 yards. “This will hurt, but it's just motivation to keep going throughout the season.”
Abrams said the Cougars have “a lot to learn” from the defeat.
"We'll get after it. We'll fight and fight for this,” Abrams said. “We just have to not lose the ball as much."
Henley won its first three games by an average of 31.3 points.
"This was the most physical and hardest team we've played all year,” Whitlock said. “So I think it's going to push us to set the bar so that it goes higher. … It sets the bar for what to expect for these later games and what to expect in the playoffs.”

Perhaps the most surprising team so far this season comes from the 1A six-man division.
Harper Charter, which finished 3-5 last season, has won its first four games and stands at No. 2 in the OSAAtoday 1A-6 coaches poll.
The Hornets, powered by a deep sophomore class, made a big statement by knocking off the No. 1 team in their first two games. They went on the road to stun reigning state champion Spray/Mitchell/Wheeler 26-20 in the opener and followed that with a 37-26 win over South Wasco County.
Harper Charter has come a long way since last season, when it lost to Spray/Mitchell/Wheeler 50-6 and South Wasco County 33-0.
“They beat us up last year,” said Hornets coach David Marker, whose team stayed unbeaten Friday with a 45-0 home win over Jordan Valley. “But we were a bunch of freshmen on the field. We physically couldn't keep up with them as freshmen.”
Harper Charter, located 25 miles southwest of Vale, has 19 boys in its high school, and all but two are on the football team. The Hornets – with eight sophomores and five freshmen on the roster – lack size but make up for it with tenacity.
“We get off the bus and we're not intimidating,” Marker said. “We were undersized in those first two games so bad. These guys just look at it like, 'All right, let's go knock off another giant.' They aren't afraid.”
Sophomore running back Cope Christensen leads the team with 12 rushing touchdowns, adding two Friday.
“He's causing teams to pull their hair out,” Marker said. “He's got an internal motor that you just can not stop. He won't go down.”
The Hornets are getting standout play from two freshmen in end Richard Joyce and running back Madoxx Martinez. Joyce is a threat as a receiver and runner and is a lock-down cornerback. Martinez is quick through the holes and likes to lower his shoulder to take on defenders.
“They're going to make this team exceptionally tough in the next couple years,” Marker said of the freshmen. “It makes our future look extremely bright.”
The Hornets expected to improve this season by returning four two-way starters and the addition of the freshmen. But they didn't know where they stood until knocking off Spray/Mitchell/Wheeler.
“To come out winning that one was definitely huge motivation for our boys,” Marker said. “They realized they could be good, but they didn't buy into how good they could be until after that.”
Harper Charter also is getting senior leadership from Daniel Ansell-Casiano, a first-year starter at quarterback, and middle linebacker Eli Vergara, who anchors the defense and is “kind of the thumper on our team,” according to Marker.
The Hornets had 13 consecutive losing seasons until going 7-1 in 2018. They looked poised for success, but many of the players transferred to bigger schools.
“That was heartbreaking,” said Marker, the team's coach since 2015.
Willamina's Hadley explodes
Willamina rode the legs of 5-9, 170-pound junior Jacob Hadley to a wild 69-50 win over Culver in a 2A Tri-River Conference game Thursday. Hadley carried 48 times for 452 yards and nine touchdowns and scored two two-point conversions for the Bulldogs (3-1, 1-1).
Since Oregon introduced the nine-man game for 2A last season, only Lowell's JaMar Thurman (495 yards vs. Toledo in 2022) has rushed for more yards in a game.
Hadley broke his own nine-man record for touchdowns in a game, set last year when he rushed for seven scores against Culver. In that game, he ran for 437 yards, which was No. 2 on the list.
Through four games this season, Hadley has rushed for 990 yards and 20 touchdowns on 108 carries. He is on pace to surpass his season totals from 2022, when he rushed for 1,575 yards and 21 touchdowns.
The offensive line of junior Hondo Arenas (6-1, 230) and seniors Rhyne Nelson (6-3, 245) and Michael Nolen (5-11, 245) paved the way for Hadley against Culver (2-2, 1-1). Freshman linebacker Landon Risseeuw had three sacks, a forced fumble and two fumble recoveries in the win.
