Warriors edge Tigers

LEBANON — Despite all the crazy weather that has come through Central Indiana on Friday nights, last night’s matchup between Lebanon and Danville was the first time these teams had to play through the sloppy conditions.

The mud and wind allowed the Danville to impose their size and strength as theytook a narrow 21-20 victory.

“Our quickness has been a key for us this season and tonight the wet, sloppy conditions played to Danville’s favor,”  Lebanon coach Kent Wright said. “There were rough conditions out there, but we gotta get the ball in the end zone at the end.”

The end to which Wright was referring was a fourth-and-goal from the 3-yard line. It was setup by Lebanon quarterback Isaac Harker, who scrambled free on a fourth-and-19 and found Caleb Brannon open for a first down. A couple of short runs and an incomplete pass set the Tigers up with fourth-and -goal. On the play, Harker dropped back, but was unable to find an open receiver and Danville shut off his running lanes, forcing Harker to throw it up in the end zone and it then fell harmlessly to the water-soaked field.

The game started off with both teams trying to find their footing as the rain slowly turned the field into a muddy mess. Neither team scored on their opening drives. Harker keyed the Tiger’s first scoring drive with a couple of big runs and throws, including a pair of quick slants that moved the chains and kept the drive alive. Lebanon’s touchdown came on a 1-yard plunge by Jamison Wright, but the Tigers missed a 2-point-conversion and led 6-0 with 2:10 left in the first.

Met with a challenge, Danville’s Jake Bolton answered the call with a 65-yard kickoff return that set up the Warriors’ offense at the Tiger 21.
