Kalama exacted some revenge Friday night over Woodland, scoring 26 unanswered points to pull away from the visiting Beavers.
Brennan Vance rushed for 122 yards on 13 carries with two touchdowns and also caught two balls for 35 yards and score, Jackson Esary was 4-of-8 for 48 yards, a touchdown and two interceptions in his debut.
Isaiah Flanagan ran in a touchdown for Woodland’s only points of the night and an early lead, but Kalama came back in the second half.
Led by Vance, Kalama coach Sean McDonald said, the Chinooks adjusted to Woodland and, despite a 7-6 halftime deficit, scored 20 second-half points to pull away. Kalama scored some momentum going into the locker rooms with a fourth-and-goal stop of Woodland the keep the score there.
Brooks Massey had Woodland’s two interceptions defensively.
“It’s always an absolute battle between these two teams,” Kalama coach Sean McDonald said. “We faced some adversity in the first quarter, but fixed things on defense, made some adjustments and got guys in the right place.
“Brennon Vance took the game into his hands in the second half.”
Kalama visits Napavine next week and Woodland hosts La Center.

Heppner 27, Clatskanie 20: The long drive was a killer for the Tigers as they split their home-and-home series with the Mustangs on Friday.
James Helmen passed for 244 yards on 14-of-22 passing with two touchdowns and an interception in the loss. Helmen also rushed for 33 yards on 10 carries with a touchdown, but lost one of his two fumbles. Cedrix Moses added for 56 yards on 16 carries on the ground.
Andrea Combs caught six passes for 94 yards and J’kari Combs caught three passes for 65 yards and a score. Sam Shockley had four receptions for 68 yards and a TD, as well.
After trailing 13-6 at the break, Heppner took a 20-6 lead in the third quarter when Jayden Wilson threw his only touchdown pass of the night to Mason Lehman, a 55-yard catch-and-run that was Lehman’s second receiving score of the night.
Clatskanie responded with a Helmen 4-yard plunge to make the score 20-12.
But Heppner added another score, a 2-yard scoring run from Wilson, and Clatskanie’s final touchdown, a 44-yard pass from Helmen to J’kari Combs with a two-point conversion on top, just wasn’t enough.
Clatskanie hosts Highline (WA), a rather large 2A school, next week.

Hoqiuam 48, Castle Rock 12: The Grizzlies pulled away from the Rockets on Friday night on the coast.
Wyatt Partidge scored on a 35-yard run and ran a kickoff back for 86 yards to provide Castle Rock’s points.
The kickoff return got the Rockets the closest they’d be at 20-12, but 28 unanswered points by Hoqiuam put it out of reach.
Rockets coach Aaron Gehring was happy with the effort, saying there wasn’t any catastrophic that happened. Everything is fixable.
“We can correct a lot of stuff on tape,” he said. “Nothing we saw we couldn’t correct.
“We happened to let a few plays get away from us.”
