Izaak Worsch tied the Corvallis High single-game record of five rushing touchdowns as the Spartans built a 14-0 lead and cruised to a 42-7 Mid-Willamette Conference win at McKay on Thursday night.

Worsch had touchdown runs of 5, 7, 6, 6 and 4 to tie the record set by Roy Williams (three times), Jarren Simmons and Joe Frank.

Worsch finished with 213 yards on 27 carries, many on direct snaps.

"Most of the evening we stayed in our wildcat look," CHS coach Chris McGowan said.

McGowan said the Spartans played a strong game on defense and came up with three interceptions and a fumble recovery.

The win improves the Spartans’ record to 2-4 and will host West Albany on Oct. 18. The Bulldogs are 5-0 and crushed North Salem 63-0 on Thursday.

After a scoreless first quarter, the Spartans built a 14-0 lead thanks to a pair of long touchdown drives.

Worsch’s 5-yard touchdown run early in the second quarter capped an 80-yard drive for a 7-0 lead.

Worsch made it 14-0 with a 7-yard run with 3:46 left in the half as the Spartans went 91 yards for the score.

McKay was able to cut in to the deficit with a 19-yard pass from Tyler Kynaston to Chansse Lee with 12 seconds left.

Worsch then had back-to-back 6-yard runs in the third quarter to help the Spartans take complete control and go up 28-7 after three quarters.

He added a 4-yard touchdown run early in the fourth and Ethan Hester put the icing on the cake with an 18-yard interception return for a touchdown with 3:44 to play.
