PRINEVILLE — Behind 481 yards on the ground and two 100-yard rushers, Redmond cruised by Crook County 54-22 in a nonleague football matchup Friday night.
“It’s about as good as you’re going to get,” Redmond coach Nathan Stanley said of his team’s balance of offensive weapons. “So far, we’ve been blessed to do what we want when we want, and these kids have done a great job in allowing us to do that.”
Trevor Hindman and Cam Peters each ran for more than 150 yards for the Panthers, with Hindman’s 179 yards leading the way.
Redmond’s Andrew Leeland passed for 127 yards and three touchdowns, as the Panthers picked up their sixth straight win to remain undefeated.
“They are explosive, they’re tough and they’re gritty,” Stanley said of his players. “If it takes a fight in a phone booth to win a game, they’ll do it.”
Joe Saenz led Crook County with 103 yards through the air and 49 yards rushing, while Brandon Zemp ran for two touchdowns.
Redmond (6-0) returns to Class 5A Intermountain Conference action next Friday night at home against Bend High. Crook County (4-2) heads to Redmond the same night to face Ridgeview.

REDMOND — Boomer Fleming scored twice for the Ravens and Reece Rollins added a touchdown for Ridgeview, which improved to 4-2 overall after shutting out the visiting Eagle Indians. The Ravens led 14-0 at halftime against head coach Andy Codding’s former team. “Our defense played great,” said Codding, who admitted it was a bit strange facing his former squad. “It was kind of a mirror-image game. Their offense is very similar to ours. ... Our defense has been seeing that offense for the last couple of weeks and did a good job defending it.” Linebacker Ty Hovey and defensive end Phelan Lund led the Ridgeview defense, according to Codding. The Ravens host Crook County next week in their lone Class 4A Special District 1 game of the season.

Junction City reclaimed the lead, but the Outlaws answered with an 80-yard drive capped by a 3-yard TD run by Luloff. The drive was highlighted by a 43-yard pass from Tristen Lewis to Cole Moore that placed the Outlaws in the red zone. Sisters added to the lead on the following kickoff when Moore forced a fumble and Scott Nelson recovered the ball and rumbled 22 yards to the end zone. Nathan Kaping caught two TD passes, of 5 and 3 yards. Sisters (3-3 overall, 1-1 Sky-Em) plays at Elmira on Thursday.
