Camas (1-0): The Camas defense help the Papermakers survive an uneven performance on offense in their win over Timberline. … QB Tony Gennaro completed 17 of 26 passes for 154 yards, but all-league RB Zack Marshall rushed for just 21 yards on 16 carries. … As a team, Camas rushed for just 42 yards, with 15 coming in the final minutes after Camas had sealed the win away. … K Roldan Alcobendas proved a key player.

Bottom line: One week is not always the best barometer to just a team. The Week 1 performances could be as much a product of the opponents as it is a team’s strength or weakness. Either way, this looks to be a great 3A GSHL opener, with Camas getting the home-field edge.
