Clark County gets season rolling, 50-0
The re-invigorated Vancouver Vipers, who've changed their name to Clark County, opened the 2011 Pacific Football League schedule with an impressive 50-0 win over the Washington Cavaliers Saturday at Kiggins Bowl in Vancouver.
Kyle English, a former standout for the Portland Monarchs franchise, threw for four touchdowns and newly-recruited Romeen Abdollmohammidi kicked two field goals as the Vipers cruised to victory in the first game involving one of the 16 teams in the newly-formed PFL.
As the Cavaliers are not a PFL franchise, the game is classified as non-league.
The Vipers took the ball after the opening kickkoff and drove 52 yards in eight plays with English connecting with Charles Hepner for the final nine yards. Abdollmohammidi, who played two seasons at Washington State, booted the extra-point attempt over the Kiggins Bowl outer fence and the Vipers were off to their first win.
English later connected with Jason Pabillano from 27 yards out and twice with Kai Moe, from 6 and 8 yards, for touchdowns. Naamon Archer also threw a scoring pass, connecting with Cody Gilbert from 15 yards.
The Vipers defense returned a fumble for a score and also recorded a safety, giving the team nine scoring plays.
English played with the Monarchs when they were based in Salem as the Oregon Monarchs. As a receiver, he was the Oregon Football League's Offensive Player of the Year in 2008, catching passes from current Monarchs quarterback Russell Schneider.
Clark County, which suited up nearly 50 players, plays a preseason game against the Portland Raiders Saturday at Battle Ground High School starting at 6 p.m.
