Bruins shine bright over No. 2 Stars

LIZTON — In a battle of unbeaten Sagamore Conference foes, it was the Bruins who dimmed the Stars last night.

Tri-West (6-1) knocked off Class 3A No. 2-ranked Western Boone 32-30 with some explosive offense, playmaking on defense and by holding on at the end of the game in front of a packed homecoming crowd.

Trailing 32-30, The Stars received the ball with 41.7 seconds remaining at their own 22-yard line with no timeouts and had moved the ball to midfield before senior Chris Staton sealed the Tri-West victory with an interception to run the clock out.

“We made a couple more plays than they did. They make a couple more plays there at the end and they have a miraculous finish,” Tri-West coach Chris Coll said. “They are a great football team and obviously if we lost that football it would have been rough but that was a great high school football game between two good football teams and we got lucky enough to win in the end.”

Sophomore quarterback Jake Hendershot went 16 of 23 for 261 yards and two touchdowns through the air and 48 yards and two touchdowns rushing to help ground the Stars (6-1) and give them their first loss of the season.

“I got to do this for my guys,” Hendershot said. “Most guys on our team play both ways and I just come in and play on offense so I try my best to give them everything I have.”

Western Boone led 14-12 with a 1:30 remaining in the first half and was looking to add to their advantage before halftime.  On fourth-and-2 at their own 45, Stars quarterback C.J. McMann threw a slant to his right and the Bruins’ Nick Phelps was there for the interception. The senior hugged the sideline, cut back to avoid McMann and converted the 48-yard pick six to switch momentum to Tri-West.
