Wallowa High School’s varsity football team took another step toward a state championship Nov. 2 defeating Falls City/Kings Valley Charter 44-8.

The Cougars will face Lowell 1 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 10, in Wallowa. The winner of that game will face either Crane or St. Paul Nov. 16.

The Cougars shook off a sluggish first half to add five touchdowns in the second to overwhelm the Mountaineers.

Wallowa took a 14-8 lead late in the first half, coming back to dominate in the second.

Sophomore Jesse Duncan had his best performance of the season on defense, six tackles and eight assists. Zeb Ramsden added six tackles and three assists, Wyatt Prince five tackles and four assists and Austin Brockamp four tackles and three assists.

Mason Moore, Joe Robb, Gus Ramsden, Ricky Prince, Freddy DeVore, Corsin Risi and Michael Diggins also were in on a well-balanced defensive effort.

Gus Ramsden stepped up to run the ball seven times in the game, accounting for 202 of the Cougars’ 470 total yards. Brockamp added 180 yards.

Gus Ramsden also completed three of seven passes for 67 yards to receivers Zeb Ramsden (twice) and Tristin Bales.

Wallowa more than doubled Falls City/Kings Valley Charter’s total yards (214) and nearly tripled the Mountaineers’ yards rushing (167 to 403).

Lowell will bring its 7-3 overall record from the Eugene area, having defeated Imbler Nov. 3, 36-24.

Like Wallowa, Lowell has lost to St. Paul (6-76) this season as well as Adrian and Nestucca.
