All-state player of the year Alex Dyer was removed in the second half as a precaution after the Kalama quarterback tweaked his neck, and No. 1-ranked Adna rallied to top No. 2 Kalama 27-17 in Adna on Friday.
Dyer was 11 for 20 for 121 yards and a pair of scores — a 3 yard strike to Grant Vandenberg and a 12-yard pass to Max Ross — before exiting the game.
“We just wanted to be as safe as possible,” coach Sean McDonald said. “We want to keep him healthy.”
The Chinooks had a couple costly turnovers in the second half, after blocking a punt out of the end zone for a safety to take a 17-6 lead. The Chinooks had scored 17 unanswered points.

Onalaska 32, Wahkiakum 27: Mules quarterback Luke Brown threw for 275 yards, the biggest Wahkiakum passing game in several years, but the team lost its nonleague home game Friday. Chance Cothren and KC Beery caught touchdown passes of 16 yards and 18 yards, respectively, while James Anderson rushed for a 6-yard score and Brown punched in one from 1-yard out.
“With all the stuff going on this week, I could never be more proud of what this team did,” coach Eric Hansen said.
This is the first game the Mules have played since Beau Carlson suffered a serious head injury, and home fans showed their support by wearing camouflage.
Wahkiakum travels to play Napavine on Friday.
