David Katon rushed for 115 yards and two scores, Kenney Tripp rushed for 129 yards and five two-point conversions and Stone Ware added 88 yards and three scores as the Columbians sailed past the White Buffaloes for the second time this season.
Madras took the air out of the ball to start, running nine minutes of clock off during the first quarter. It missed a field goal to conclude the drive, however, and Rainier got just four offensive plays in the initial period.
It still ended with a 2-yard Stone Ware run, and the Columbians were off and running.
“They came out and their intention was to shorten the game,” Rainier coach Mike King said. “It was a good gameplan, but ultimately once we got a couple stops, we got things rolling.”
David Katon added a 2-yard run in the second quarter, then Ware added a 42-yard jaunt in the third.
Ware found the end zone for the third time in the final period from 5 yards out, then Katon added one from 46 for good measure.
Rainier’s defense was dominant. Korbin Howell had 15 tackles and Easton Crape added eight with a sack and knocked down a couple of passes. Tripp had two picks, as well.
Rainier advances to the second round of the OSAA 3A State Playoffs and will likely face Amity, who doesn’t play until Saturday.

Clatskanie 56, St. Mary’s 27: The Crusaders took a 14-12 lead in the first quarter, but Clatskanie’s more multidimensional offense spoke louder, and the Tigers won their first-round state playoff matchup in Medford, Ore.
St. Mary’s rushed for only 82 yards, but threw for 320. Most of that was due to Trevahn Foster, a lethal 6-foot-5 WR who caught three of the Crusaders’ touchdowns.
But Clatskanie gradually adapted, improved its reads and put the brakes on Foster, who was the one outsized threat the Tigers were faced with.
“(Our players) responded really well,” Clatskanie coach Tim Warren said. “We made some adjustments with where our keys were and what the kids were supposed to be looking at.”
Meanwhile, Clatskanie’s deeper arsenal was at work in dramatic fashion. Josh Quevido and Andre Combs both returned a kickoff 90 yards for a score. QB James Helmen didn’t throw much, but he did hit Combs for a 30-yard TD.
But it was Cedrix Moses who hurt St. Mary’s the most. Clatskanie provided effective blocking up front, and Moses repeatedly rammed through Crusader tacklers. He got the ball 17 times for 276 yards, scoring on carries of 50, 8, 72, and 50 again.
“We played well. Cedrix did a great job,” Warren said. “He was beyond special.”
Despite the high pass yards allowed, Warren praised his defense. Defensive lineman Sterling Bruce was key up front for the Tigers, and linebackers Helmen and Sam Shockley also played tough.
Sixth-seeded Clatskanie will next visit No. 3 Burns on a day and time to be determined.
