Warriors win, clinch portion of Sagamore Conference with Tri-West and WeBo

DANVILLE — Friday night football was created for a night just like last night.

A crisp, clear autumn evening, a standing room only crowd and a conference championship on the line made respected rivals Danville and Tri-West’s annual meeting special.

The host Warriors (7-2) beat the Class 3A No. 6-ranked Bruins (7-2) 40-35 for the Helmet trophy and a share of the Sagamore Conference crown on senior night.

“This means a lot for the seniors. I don’t think that they have beat Tri-West since they were in grade school,” Danville coach Russ Sumner said. “They’ve talked about it all week how they haven’t beat Tri-West in so long and it’s been a while since we’ve had the helmet. And to be a conference champion means a lot as well.”

After the game, students rushed the field to celebrate the Warriors’ first win over the Bruins since 2010 and the first portion of the conference title since 2009.

“Senior night, our rivals, a conference championship, there’s nothing better,” Danville senior quarterback Scott Amor said. “I’m so happy for everybody, I’m just ecstatic right now.”

Danville, Tri-West and Western Boone each share a third of the conference title. Tri-West coach Chris Coll is extremely proud of his team’s accomplishments and slice of the Sagamore Conference crown.

“It’s means a lot, we are still conference champions. We’ll share it with them, we didn’t want to, we were a little selfish coming down here,” Coll said. “We beat WeBo, WeBo beat them and they beat us so I’m not going to look down at it. These kids ought to be proud. I think we were picked to finish 11th or 12th in a nine team conference this year so we did all right.”
