The Seaside Gulls scored their usual, routine blowout victory Oct. 5, 36-7 over Molalla at Broadway Field.

The “runaway” candidate for state 4A Offensive Player of the Year, Seaside running back Alexander Teubner ran his season total to 1,131 yards rushing yards and 24 touchdowns, with four more scores and 171 yards on the ground against the Indians. With 115 rushing attempts through six games, Teubner is averaging 9.8 yards per carry.

No. 1-ranked Seaside (6-0 overall) had the game locked up by halftime, 22-0, while the Gulls’ defense held Molalla to just 76 yards in total offense, and 1-for-12 on third down conversions. Despite four turnovers, Seaside finished the game with 402 yards in total offense.

Gulls 64, Valiants 8

BEAVERTON — A rare road trip — one of just three regular season road games the Seaside Gulls will play until a likely trip to Hillsboro Nov. 24 — turned out to be just like any other Friday for the Gulls, Sept. 28 at Valley Catholic.

Seaside all over the Valley Catholic Valiants, to the tune of a 64-8 final score, the fourth time this season the Gulls have topped 50 points, in five games.

Running backs Alexander Teubner and Duncan Thompson combined for 267 yards rushing on just 12 attempts (over 22 yards per carry).

It took Seaside only seven offensive plays to build a 24-0 lead, as Seaside recovered an onside kick to open the contest, then scored on Teubner’s 30-yard run, followed by a two-point conversion.

Following a Valiants’ turnover, Thompson scored on a 39-yard romp, with a two-point conversion run by Brayden Johnson.

Seaside converted another turnover into points, with Gio Ramirez sprinting 29 yards for a one-play scoring drive, followed by another two-point conversion.

Moving the ball at will, Seaside added three more touchdowns in the second quarter, highlighted by Payton Westerholm’s 26-yard catch-and-run pass to Teubner. Teubner added two more TD runs for a 45-8 halftime lead.

Teubner rushed eight times for 166 yards, and Thompson ran four times for 101 yards.

Defensively, Ledger Pugh had five tackles and two interceptions.
