PWV Takes Advantage of Adna Miscues in Crossover Rout


Pe Ell-Willapa Valley and Adna only ended up playing 45 minutes of gametime, with the game getting called with three minutes to go in the fourth quarter after the wind snapped a tree off at the trunk and blew it all the way onto the track.

But with the scoreboard flashing a 54-0 lead for the Titans at the time, there weren’t going to be any complainers on either side.

The flying tree only put a slightly-early end on a one-way beatdown, as Adna had a night to forget to end its season, and PWV took advantage to cruise into the state tournament.

The Pirates finished with minus-53 total yards on the night. With starting quarterback Lane Johnson exiting the game in the second quarter, Adna didn’t complete a pass, but things went worse on the ground. The Pirates only went backwards and fumbled the ball 13 times, with PWV jumping on six of those.

Cody Strozyk started the scoring with a 62-yard touchdown run, and after a quarter of play, the PWV was just seven points. But over the course of the next eight minutes of gametime, the Titans exploded for 40, taking advantage of short field after short field following Adna fumbles.

Kolten Fluke tossed two touchdowns to his cousin Derek Fluke, ran one in himself, and threw a third score to Blake Howard. Strozyk added another touchdown, and Wil Clements made it 47-0 going into halftime.

Garrett Keeton gave PWV its final touchdown on defense, scooping up a fumble and running it back 30 yards.

PWV will learn its postseason fate Sunday. Adna sees its season come to an end, finishing with a final record of 5-6.
