Frankfort beats back Danville, 42-40

FRANKFORT — Frankfort held off Danville for a 42-40 win Friday night in an offensive slug fest.

The Hot Dogs put up nearly 325 total yards of offense, compared to 367 for the Warriors, with field position being a major factor in the outcome.

While Frankfort’s Evan Giebel forced touchbacks on almost every kick, Danville utilized onside kicks. Although it forced one Hot Dog turnover, it generally left Frankfort in much better field position.

“We knew it wasn’t going to be easy at all,” Frankfort coach Mike Quick said. “We had problems stopping them offensively, they had problems stopping us and our guys played through it and I’m really proud of them. This is a great win for Frankfort’s football program.”

On the first play after the opening kickoff, Frankfort recovered a Danville fumble on the Warriors’ 28, and Frankfort’s James Brandenburg ran it in for a touchdown on the ensuing play. It was the first of three TDs on the night for Brandenburg.

On Danville’s next drive, Frankfort recovered another fumble, and eventually Giebel hit a field goal for a 10-0, advantage.

However, Danville fired back about five minutes later when Ben Jones caught a 13-yard TD pass, but the extra point conversion failed.

Danville scored again with 25 seconds left in the first quarter on an Autry Pickens 79-yard TD run, the first of five on the night.

But again, the extra point conversion was no good, leaving Danville with a 12-10 lead at the end of the quarter.

With 9:06 left in the second quarter, Brandenburg scored on a 3-yard run.

Danville responded with another Pickens touchdown with 1:27 on the clock.

Frankfort finished the half with what Quick called an “unbelievable” one-handed catch in the endzone, putting the Hot Dogs up 23-18 at the break.

Frankfort came out in the second half with a 15-yard TD pass to Luis Medina, but that was answered with another Pickens TD and a successful two-point conversion.
