HALFWAY — Colton Eubanks and the Powder Valley football team had a day they won’t soon forget against Pine Eagle Friday.

Eubanks rushed for 305 yards and found the endzone nine times in the Badgers’ 
91-48 rout of the Spartans.

“Colton just had one of those games,” coach Dan Townsend said. 

“It was fun to watch. He did a great job of following his blocks and making great reads.

“Every time he touched the ball good things happened for us.”

Eubanks rushed for six touchdowns and returned two kickoffs and one punt for  scores.

But he wasn’t the only one putting in work.

Quin Stephens had 194 yards rushing and a pair of scores, while Chace Dixon had 92 yards passing on six of 10 completions.

“Chace did a good job of controlling the game for us,” Townsend said. 

“Pine Eagle’s offense gave us some trouble early in the game, which forced our defensive coordinator Jared Young to make some changes. “After the first quarter we dialed in the D and held them scoreless in the second and well into the third. They are a well coached team that kept coming.”

The Badgers improve to 2-4 on the season with the win and are 1-1 in Special District 4.

Imbler and Cove both sit at 2-0 in league.

Powder Valley will face off with a high-scoring Leopards squad next week.

Cove defeated Joseph 62-0 Friday, while Imbler beat Wallowa 52-6 to remain unbeaten.
