The Oregon 6A football championship will be a rematch of the the much-anticipated annual Catholic rivalry between Central Catholic and Jesuit. The title game — dubbed the ‘Vatican Bowl’ by some wags — is set for 1 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 7, at Jeld Wen Field in Portland.

When the two teams met Sept. 20, Central Catholic won 45-31, taking bragging rights for the second year in a row.

To get to the final, Jesuit defeated Canby in the semi-finals 35-17. The youngish Crusaders had a scare in round two Nov. 15, edging rival Lake Oswego 21-19 but then won fairly handily. Central Catholic plowed into the semifinals with lopsided wins, and faced highly ranked Tigard last week, winning by the basketball-like score of 83-49. Ram running backs Cameron Scarlett and Ryan Nall rushed for a combined 676 yards and nine touchdowns.

Saturday’s game will be Central Catholic’s first title attempt in 60 years.   

The 6A soccer championship was also a Central Catholic-Jesuit affair. Jesuit won 2-1. In volleyball, Central Catholic edged Jesuit in an exhausting semi-final game then lost unexpectedly in the finals. While the schools compete on the field, many students cross lines and are friends.

Regis High School of Stayton vied for the 2A Oregon football championship last weekend, losing to Grant Union 12-7. The game, held at Summit High in Bend, was a close affair. Regis scored first on a Jeremiah Grieser one-yard dive. The winning play was a 98-yard touchdown pass. Neither team scored in the second half and Regis was held to 268 yards on the day.  

Grieser recently won the Statesman Journal Athlete of the Week award last week.
