Odessa brothers Sage and Gaven Elder continued to provide muscle as the Titans marched forward into the 8-man football playoffs. Sage (5) picks up good yardage before being stopped in Friday's game against Entiat played at home in Odessa.

Last Friday in another home game in Odessa, the Titans played Entiat, winning 72-16. Titan quarterback Colton Hunt was still sidelined with a sprained ankle. Freshman backup QB Camden Weber stepped up and led the Titans to another lopsided victory.

Gaven Elder paced the Titan offense in this game from the very beginning, picking off an Entiat pass on their first offensive play of the game.

The Titans then scored first as G. Elder ran 30 yards for the touchdown and then also ran the ball across the goal line for two more points. Entiat answered with a TD and two-point conversion to tie the score at eight points each.

Sage Elder ran one yard to score the next TD, with G. Elder running the ball in for the extra two.

The next score was another one-yard run by S. Elder, with Weber's pass to S. Elder falling incomplete for no additional points.

To close out the first-quarter scoring G. Elder ran 39 yards for his second TD. Weber's extra-point passing attempt was no good.

In the second quarter, G. Elder ran for five yards to score, and the two-point conversion run by G. Elder was also good. Weber's pass was complete to G. Elder for a 38-yard touchdown play. The two-point conversion pass by Weber to Chance Messer was no good. S. Elder ran for one yard and a TD. Weber's quarterback keeper was also good for two more to end the first-half scoring.

After halftime, S. Elder ran 22 yards for another touchdown, and younger brother G. Elder ran the ball in for the two-point conversion.

G. Elder scored again in the third quarter on a 23-yard run. The two-point conversion run by Weber was also good.

Marcus King ran 19 yards for the Titans' final touchdown. Weber's attempted pass to Joshua Clark was no good.

Entiat got its final score, as well as the final score of the game, on a nine-yard passing play, followed by a successful two-point conversion pass.

On Saturday, November 19, O-H will play ACH in a quarterfinal game at Gonzaga Prep at 6 p.m.
