Panthers score early, often in 48-0 Camas win

Home game Friday with Jackpot in Carey


Carey High School sophomore Dillon Cenarrusa (3 catches, 49 yards) catches a Caleb Cenarrusa pass during Carey’s 48-0 Sawtooth Conference eight-man football win over Camas County at Fairfield Oct. 9.

The Carey Panthers didn't wait long before scoring one of their seven touchdowns in Friday's Sawtooth Conference eight-man football game against the Camas County Mushers in breezy Fairfield.

Leading scorer Gonzalo Zarate (72 points season) took off on a 58-yard touchdown run on Carey's first play from scrimmage, 17 seconds into the game, and the Panthers never looked back in a 48-0 victory.

Zarate, one of eight Carey seniors, ended up with three TDs for the mercy-rule shortened game including another 58-yard dash on a fake punt early in the third quarter. He rushed for 119 yards on three carries as Carey out-rushed Camas 258-113 and out-gained the Mushers 475-118.

Senior Dillon Simpson added a 51-yard TD run on an end around, senior Brett Adamson caught a 36-yard TD pass and junior Lynn Mecham finished the scoring and the game with a 10-yard TD run at the 9:22 mark of the fourth.

Junior quarterback Caleb Cenarrusa (7-for-13, 129 yards, 2 TD) piloted the Carey offense while sophomore Dillon Cenarrusa (3 catches, 49 yards) and junior Jacy Baird (3 catches, 58 yards, 1 TD) were his primary aerial targets.

The Camas County offensive star was senior quarterback Mickenzie Boggs (17 carries for 93 yards). The Mushers had plenty of chances to run their offense since they monopolized the ball for over 26 minutes of the nearly 39-minute game.

Scoring 22 points in the first quarter and building a 28-0 lead early in the second gave Carey coach Lane Kirkland a good chance to play many of his younger players. Sophomores Charlie Rivera (11 tackles) and Chance Chavez (7) led the defense that had seven sacks.

Randy Jewett's Mushers (0-7, 0-6) have a bye this week and will stay at home for their final two games. They'll try to snap a two-season, nine-game skid Oct. 23 against Jackpot (Nev.) and will also host Rockland.

Carey returns home to Derrick Parke Memorial Field Friday, Oct. 16 at 7 p.m. for another Sawtooth clash against the Jackpot Jaguars (0-6, 0-6). This year's "Senior Night" game has been rescheduled for Wednesday, Oct. 28 at 7 p.m. at home against Richfield.

Kirkland's Carey squad (5-1, 4-1 league) is ranked #3 behind Kootenai and Mackay among Idaho 1A Division 2 schools in this week's Idahosports.com poll. Mackay finishes up at home with Richfield Oct. 16, at home with North Gem Oct. 23 and at Murtaugh Oct. 29.

League-leading Mackay (6-0, 5-0) survived a scare Friday before winning 42-12 at Rockland. The Bulldogs led 6-0 in the first and trailed only 14-12 after three quarters, but Mackay's Kole Krosch (165 yards rushing, 158 yards passing) sparked a 28-point fourth quarter.

Carey will make the trip to Rockland (3-2, 3-2) Friday, Oct. 23. Other teams still in league contention are Murtaugh (4-3, 3-3), Richfield (3-3, 2-3), Dietrich (3-3, 3-2) and North Gem (4-2, 4-1). North Gem hosts Murtaugh this coming Friday, while Rockland plays at Dietrich and Richfield goes to Mackay.
