Capital shuts out Timberline, 21-0

Last week's loss to North Kitsap was essentially the result of crucial injuries, as the Cougars went without Reid and Riley Wall and quarterback Kellen Camus. This week, Riley and Kellen were back, and combined with Capital's stingy defense, the pair led the Cougars to a 21-0 victory.
Late in the third quarter, Camus, a 5-foot-8 junior quarterback, scrambled out of trouble and completed a 41-yard touchdown pass to Jourdan Weiks, who had gotten behind the defense near the goal line.

"It was a broken down play and I was scrambling," Camus said. "But Jourdan was still running his route. I saw him deep."

Weiks caught Camus' pass and dove into the end zone for a 15-0 lead with 33 seconds left in the quarter.

Camus struck again on Capital's next possession when he completed a 13-yard touchdown pass to Hunter Sapp for a 21-0 lead with 10:21 left in the game.

"We talked about that play on the sidelines and what the linebacker was doing," Camus said. "We knew we could throw over the top of him. I just put it up and Hunter made a great catch."
Unfortunately, Riley Wall was reinjured late in the game, and his status for next week's contest against North Thurston is questionable.
