For most of the game, Camas football was losing to themselves. Coeur d’Alene’s defensive line disrupted Allen early and often, and the Vikings offense capitalized, putting up 228 yards in the first half. Camas turnovers hurt.
Allen completed 25 of 45 attempts for 242 yards. Coeur d’Alene’s Cole Yankoff finished 19-34 with 294 yards, a touchdown and two picks. With 90 seconds remaining, Camas was behind 25-14, but Allen passed it to Drake Owen, who scored two TD’s after several attempts, and then scored a 2-point conversion, which sealed the deal with 20 seconds on the clock.
