Hermiston defeats Hillsboro 43-7

Bulldogs outpower Hillsboro, the third place NW Oregon team

Posted Tuesday October 20, 2008

HERMISTON - Hermiston High School hosted Hillsboro of the 5A NW Oregon league for their homecoming on Friday. The Dawgs had no problem moving the ball and scoring fast. It seemed like Hermiston could put points on the board almost at will. One example was at 9:40 of the second quarter when Paul Lloyd intercepted a pass and returned it 25 yards for a touchdown. Just over a minute later at 8:34 Faafiaula Ena connected with Luis Ortiz on the first play after a Hillsboro punt for a 46 yard touchdown. By that point Hermiston was ahead 36-7.

Ena even got the chance to score a touchdown a quaterback keeper at the 10:42 mark of the 4th quarter which, with the extra point, gave Hermiston the 43-7 final score.
