Warriors run their way to second victory

(Continued)

The word was after the game that he broke his leg.

The loss put the Mounties down another starter for the game. They were already playing without Hunter Isenberg and Chance Brown, who gave it a go but were simply not 100 percent.

“We were already thin to start with,” Southmont coach Desson Hannum said. “Any time you’re down four positions like that it’s pretty tough.”

Southmont was able to grab a small stretch of momentum. In the span of five minutes, the Mounties recovered an onside kick, recorded a safety, recovered a muffed punt and tied it at 20 before recovering another onside kick.

“They were able to play with emotion there,” Hannum said. “We were able to knot it there at 20, play really tough there for a little while. “It’s a tough situation when by the end of the night you’re down to six starters in three guys right there. The kids played their heart out.”

Danville would not see the ball again until four minutes remaining in the first half. Yet, they were able to score twice thanks to a 45-yard scamper by Schubert and a 17-yard run by Pickens to make it 32-20 at halftime.

“They grabbed the momentum right away after that happened,” Sumner said. “We were back on our heels. They got a couple onside kicks; we were in tough territory there.

“We finally got the offense back the ball and went down to score, and I think that kind of reset things, put things in perspective for us, and we played a little better after that.”

Pickens scored a touchdown in the third quarter and two more in the fourth quarter as the Warriors made it 53-20 with 9:12 remaining in the game.
