Senior Heith Adamson scored two running touchdowns and sophomore Blair Peck made two defensive TDs sparking the undefeated Carey School Panthers (5-0, 3-0 league) to a 54-6 Homecoming win over Camas County Friday.
Coach Lane Kirkland's Panthers, ranked fifth in the Idahosports.com 1A Division 2 poll, scored eight TDs and took care of the visiting Mushers (1-3, 0-2) in a Sawtooth Conference eight-man football game at Derrick Parke Memorial Field.
The game ended on the 45-point mercy rule in the third period. The Panthers out-rushed Camas County 313-193 and piled up nearly 400 yards in offense. Antonio Gamino (92 yards rushing), Gonzalo Zarate (87), Shane Bingham and Caleb Cenarrusa also scored.
Camas County star was junior Mickenzie Boggs, who rushed 12 times for 129 yards and the only Musher TD. Boggs also returned six kickoffs for 79 yards and, on defense, had 17 tackles and 11 assists.
The 2008 Carey Homecoming royalty announced during last Wednesday's bonfire consisted of senior queen Emilee Butcher, junior Taylor Whitby, sophomore Amy Mares and freshman Kelly Patterson.
