Bruins win big over Hot Dogs

LIZTON — The Tri-West Bruins had recently proven an explosive offensive football team with 82 points the last two weeks. Meanwhile, the Frankfort Hot Dogs had struggled to put points on the scoreboard this season. While Frankfort matched a season-best three touchdowns, the Hot Dogs were not able to keep up with the explosive scoring the host Bruins delivered as Tri-West pulled away for a 48-20 Sagamore Conference win on Friday night.

Tri-West took advantage of the speed that Colton Jobe and Kyle Cook add to its offense, as the pair combined for four touchdowns over 30 yards. Jobe and Cook had just three rushing plays between them, but all three reached the end zone, as Tri-West was able to get ahead 14-7 in the first quarter and pull away with late flurry when Frankfort faded in the fourth quarter.

Tri-West coach Chris Coll was pleased with his team’s offensive output across the board.

“This offensive group has talent, but they are young,” Coll said. “We are starting to get some consistency. The personnel is there, but we are making progress on both sides of the ball.”

Though not happy with the end result, Frankfort coach Mike Quick had positives to build upon.

“We moved the ball pretty much all night,” Quick said. “But, we needed to get a couple of stops. We have scored early the last three weeks to keep us in the ball game.”

Jobe got Tri-West on the scoreboard with a 33-yard rush within the first three minutes. But, Frankfort answered with a quick tie as Trevor Webster evened things with a 5-yard scoring run.

Cook then exploded for 69 yards on his lone carry as Tri-West grabbed a lead and did not look back.

As pleased as Coll was seeing the big plays, he was equally happy with the next two scores as the Bruins used drives to yield 11-yard touchdown runs for quarterback Jake Hendershot and running back Wesley Cook.
