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

(Continued)

DANVILLE —

Both offenses racked up yardage with only one punt the entire game between the polar opposite offensive schemes.

Danville’s triple option rushing attack helped control possession as the Warriors notched 518 yards total, with 466 yards coming via the ground.

Amor completed all five of his passes for 52 yards and rushed the ball 20 times for 112 yards and two touchdowns. Junior workhorse running back Autry Pickens led all rushers with 157 yards on 34 carries with three touchdowns. Sophomore Ben Jones added 85 yards on 12 carries.

Tri-West’s spread passing game totaled 338 yards and was nearly unstoppable in the first half. Sophomore quarterback Jake Hendershot threw for 237 yards, three touchdowns and an interception that was a last-second heave before halftime. Hendershot also completed his first 10 passes and rushed for 103 yards and a score.

Bruins senior Mitch Alexander rushed nine times for 74 yards and a touchdown and caught five passes for 51 yards. Senior Nick Phelps scored two touchdowns on four catches and 62 yards. Senior receiver Austin Lazaro caught three passes for 90 yards and Chris Staton added three catches for 56 yards and a touchdown.

Lazaro returned the opening kickoff 52 yards to put Tri-West in great field position right off the bat. Two plays later, Hendershot connected with Staton from 27 yards out for his first of three first half touchdown passes.

Danville botched the ensuing kickoff return and gained possession at their own 3-yard line. But the Warriors marched down the field using five minutes and 18 plays. Pickens capped off the 97-yard drive with a 1-yard touchdown and Danville failed to convert the two-point conversion.

“To go 97 yards on the first drive, it instills a lot of confidence in your players that we can move the ball on this team, we can put points on this team, we just need possessions,” Sumner said.

On the next drive, a sack by a host of Danville linemen setup a Tri-West fourth-and-16 from their own 21. Hendershot connected with Phelps for his first touchdown of the night in a clutch throw from the sophomore quarterback.
