The Portland Trail Blazers gave up 40 points in the first quarter and trailed by as many as 19 points in their first half Sunday night in Dallas.

And yet, they came away with the win anyway. It would require epic performances from their starting backcourt, a huge first quarter from Rodney Hood and a successful coach’s challenge late in the fourth quarter, but in the end, the Trail Blazers came away with a 121-119 victory versus the Dallas Mavericks in front of a sellout crowd of 19,707 Sunday night at American Airlines Center.

The Trail Blazers are now 2-1 through three games this season and are 2-0 on the road. After starting the year 2-0, Sunday’s loss is Dallas’ first of the season.

Portland plays at San Antonio tonight.

The Mazama Vikings have moved up to 2 in the OSAA Class 4A power rankings after a 14-10 conference clinching victory against cross town rival the Henley Hornets on Friday night in front of a standing room only crowd at Viking Field.

Ironically, should Mazama and Henley both win next weekend in the first round of the actual playoffs, they would play each other again, this time in the OSAA quarterfinals.  The two schools played two years ago in the same round.

Class 4A will begin the ‘play-in’ round this weekend, while the rest of the classifications will have a final regular season game.

Oregon Ducks Justin Herbert marches his team down the field in the last minute to help win the game over Washington State on Saturday night.

What a night of college football as the Oregon Ducks’ Justin Herbert marched his team downfield with just a minute on the clock and then Freshman kicker Camden Lewis nailed a 26-yard field goal as time expired, extending No. 11 Oregon’s winning streak to seven games with a 37-35 victory over Washington State on Saturday night.

Winners of seven in a row and off to a 5-0 start in Pac-12 play for the first time since 2013, the Oregon Ducks jumped four spots to No. 7 in the Associated Press Top 25 College Football rankings on Sunday. It marks the Ducks’ highest AP ranking since the second game of the 2015 season.
 
The Ducks, who have won seven straight and 10 of their last 11, improved to 11-1 at Autzen Stadium under second-year head coach Mario Cristobal with a 37-35 win over Washington State Saturday night.
 
Oregon was able to snap its four-game losing streak to the Cougars thanks to 528 total yards, highlighted by 306 on the ground. Sophomore running back CJ Verdell became the first FBS player with 250 yards rushing and 50 yards receiving since 2016, and added three touchdowns.

True freshman kicker Camden Lewis hit a game-winning 26-yard field goal as time expired to finish off a perfect October for the Ducks.
 

After lagging behind for most of the first half, No. 2 Oregon Tech found their rhythm on Saturday night at Danny Miles Court, flying past the Seattle Mountaineers in the second to win with a 18-point advantage 92-74.

The Mountaineers took the advantage out of the gate, going 5-0 before the Owls caught back up with an 11-2 run. Seattle jumped back to the lead however, and from there the game went back and forth with 14 lead changes in the first half.

Senior Mitchell Fink – last year’s NAIA leader in assists per game – got right back into it, earning a double-double with 11 assists and 21 points to lead OIT.

The Hustlin’ Owls will be back in action on Wednesday when they take on Northwest Indian College at 7:30pm at Danny Miles Court before hitting the road to take on Cal Maritime in Vallejo, California on November 3rd at 3:00pm.

The Houston Astros who fell behind 2-0 in games, now lead the series 3-2 and are just a game away from taking the series.

Astros pitcher Gerrit Cole pitched amazingly and helped Houston put a firm grip on the series.

Cole looked exactly like the stud who dominated baseball most of this season, bouncing back from a Game 1 clunker to pitch the Astros to a 7-1 win Sunday night and a 3-2 lead.

Minus ailing ace Max Scherzer, the Nationals were no match in this Washington wipeout.
Rookie Yordan Álvarez and Carlos Correa hit early two-run homers off emergency starter Joe Ross as Houston won its third straight at Nationals Park. Scherzer beat Cole in the opener, but was scratched just 3½ hours before game time because of an irritated nerve near his neck that could finish him for the Series.
With the road team winning every time so far, Houston heads home with a chance to claim its second title in three years.

Justin Verlander gets the first try when he starts against Stephen Strasburg in Game 6 Tuesday night at Minute Maid Mark.
