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

(Continued)

DANVILLE —

Danville then used another long drive, this time a 12-play, 83-yard possession that resulted in a Pickens 8-yard score and a Jackson Butler two-point conversion to even the game at 14-14 with 11:21 remaining in the second quarter.

The next Bruins possession resulted in a turnover as Lazaro took a double reverse 26 yards before fumbling at the Warriors’ 5-yard line.

Danville would give it back though as Amor fumbled at the Bruins’ 25-yard line.

Hendershot found Phelps for a score again, this time a 9-yarder to put Tri-West up 21-14 after a Thomas Tintera extra point.

Another 12-play drive resulted in Warrior touchdown when Amor found pay dirt from four yards out with 1:49 remaining in the second quarter.

The Bruins took a 21-20 lead into halftime after Danville’s two-point conversion failed.

After intermission though, the Warriors erupted to score 20 straight points with rushing touchdowns from Pickens (a yard) and Amor (35 and 9 yards) to lead 40-21 with 3:45 remaining in the third.

“We talked at halftime about being more aggressive in the second half. We felt like we were doing some of the things we wanted to do in the first half but not accomplishing all of those things we had talked about in our game plan,” Sumner said. “So we went back to the game plan and really fixed a couple of the issues we were having.”

But the Bruins didn’t go down without a fight. After a turnover on downs by Tri-West and the lone punt of the game by Danville, Hendershot scored on the 12th play of the ensuing drive on a quarterback keeper from a yard out to make it 40-28.

Amor then turned the ball over after a bad pitch and the Bruins’ Rick Perry recovered.

Tri-West added their second touchdown in a 1:09 when Alexander scored from 11 yards out to bring the Bruins to 40-35 with 4:31 remaining.
