The 2012 Les Schwab Bowl once again proved why it is one of Oregon’s longest standing sporting events with an impressive array of events for the entire family.
The event started with on-field activities for all ages that continued up through kickoff of the 65th annual All Star Game that ended with the first shutout since 1988.
The South left the field with the bragging rights after scoring 21 unanswered points in the second half of the game leading to a 21-0 victory.
The first 6-points were putt on the scoreboard with 28-yard and a 39-yard field gaols by Sean Bellotti. The South built off the momentum of Bellotti’s filed goals with a Jacob Hollister 67-yard touchdown pass to game MVP Taylor Walcott.
After the 67-yard touchdown the South’s head coach Steve Turner decided to attempt a successful 2-point conversion pass to Cody Hollister with only 12:36 left in the game.
Only down by 14-points the North tried to motivate themselves to the end zone but could not make the big plays needed.
Both quarterbacks found it impossible to move the ball against the souths ferocious defence as they forced the North squad off the field on all 16-third down attempts.
By the 5:45 mark the Walcott caught another 18-yard touchdown to putt the game out of reach for the North squad.
Despite the lack of offence by the North they did have a spectacular game defensively led by Marcell Frazier who garnered defensive player of the game for the North.
