Bruins bounced from postseason

GREENCASTLE — After last night’s 20-14 loss to Class 3A, No.4-ranked and undefeated Greencastle in sectional football, Tri-West coach Chris Coll’s only had a single thought.

“When you lose a game like that, it’s the end of the career of 11 guys, that’s the first thing you think about,” he said. “Like I told them on the field, I’m really proud. There’s not a game this year that I feel like we didn’t give it our best. Like this one, we’re driving at the end trying to win it again.”

Tiger Cubs quarterback Nick Gilliam scored from two yards out to give Greencastle a 20-14 advantage with 1:16 remaining and Greencastle botched the PAT.

The Bruins were able to drive to the Tiger Cubs’ 34, but their Hail Mary pass fell short as the clock expired.

Tri-West was led offensively by sophomore quarterback Jake Hendershot who threw for 306 yards, two touchdowns and an interception. The sophomore also completed passes to five different receivers. Nick Phelps led all receivers with 135 yards on four catches and touchdown. Senior Austin Lazaro added six catches for 77 yards and senior Mitch Alexander had five grabs for 72 yards and a touchdown.

Momentum swung between the teams nearly the entire game as each squad couldn’t quite gain an advantage.

Tri-West had scoring chances deep in Greencastle territory but was unable to convert fourth down attempts.

Trailing 14-7 in the second quarter, Hendershot just missed Phelps at the goal line across the middle of the field for a likely touchdown on fourth down from the 13.

In the third quarter, still down 14-7, Tri-West was unable to punch it in for a score from the Tiger Cubs’ 5 when Hendershot’s quick out to Alexander gained only three yards. On that same drive, Hendershot lofted a perfect seam pass to Phelps for a 28-yard gain on fourth-and-21.
