SCAPPOOSE — It’s not often that the Seaside Gulls come into a game ranked higher than the Scappoose Indians, but that was the case Friday night in Scappoose, in a Cowapa League football opener.
And for one half, the Gulls looked like the higher-ranked team, leading 14-7 in the final minute of the second quarter.
But a 65-yard touchdown run by the Indians’ Tevin Jeannis in the closing seconds of the first half tied the game, and was the first of six unanswered touchdowns by Scappoose in a 49-14 win over Seaside.
Payton Westerholm and Alex Teubner had second quarter TD runs for the Gulls, while Teubner finished with 136 yards rushing on 21 attempts, running his season total to 630 yards in four games, with eight touchdowns.
Seaside will look to bounce back Friday at home against Astoria, 7 p.m.
