That was the last time the Sumner Spartans played Camas and that difficult loss has not left a single player’s mind. They wouldn’t let it happen again. Both teams came out to play Thursday night. Camas was averaging 54 points a game and Sumner needed a win to gain their confidence back. Sumner kicks it off to begin the game and Camas starts with the ball. Right before the end of the first quarter Donovan Clark attains an interception into the endzone to give Spartans the ball, and the crowd some exhilaration. The first quarter ends with no points on the board (0-0). In the second quarter, Sumner’s miscommunication leads to a fumble on the Camas 32 but fortunately Donovan Clark has another interception to give Sumner the ball back. Sumner is first to make it on the scoreboard with a 1 yard touchdown from Bryce Bostick putting the Spartans on top 7-0 over Camas with 6:00 minutes to go in the second quarter.  Unbelievably, Donovan Clark tips to ball to himself for his third interception not just of the game, but of the half.
