Bruins take muddy battle with Hot Dogs

LIZTON — Despite muddy, sloppy conditions Friday night, Tri-West defeated visiting Sagamore Conference rival Frankfort 14-0.

“As we watched (Frankfort) on film, they were a dangerous team in any conditions,” Tri-West coach Chris Coll said . “A win in the Sagamore Conference in any conditions is a good thing.”

In a game that featured five turnovers – two for the Bruins and three for the Hot Dogs — each team were forced to alter their game plans greatly, due to the deteriorating conditions as the game progressed.

“I think that probably the biggest thing tonight was the temperature drop,” Coll said. “We’ve played in the rain and the mud a couple of times this year. I don’t know how their guys were, but our guys were starting to feel the effects of being wet and cold. Tonight, it was kind of hard.”

After a scoreless first half, the Bruins finally broke through early in the third quarter. After a Frankfort (3-5) three-and-out, Austin Lazaro returned a punt 23 yards to give Tri-West (7-1) prime field possession to start the drive. On the following play, Mitch Alexander scampered 44 yards for the game’s initial score.

On the ensuing drive, the Hot Dogs took the ball down to the Bruin 10-yard line before turning the ball over on downs.

After a Tri-West fumble, Frankfort again took the ball deep into Bruin’s territory. However, the Hot Dogs again turned the ball over on downs at the 21-yard line.

“Both teams moved the ball around, but they made a play in the second half,” said Frankfort coach Mike Quick. “We tried to match it and we got deep a couple of times, but couldn’t get points. All year, it’s been closing drives out and that’s what got us tonight.”

Tri-West responded quickly, as quarterback Jake Hendershot scored on a 14-yard touchdown run on the second play of the fourth quarter. Hendershot rushed for 59 yards on the drive, including a run of 30 yards.
