Stars fall short at Tri-West

Lizton — A match-up between the last two unbeatens in the Sagamore Conference lived up its billing Friday night at Tri-West.

But unfortunately for the Western Boone faithful, the Class 3A No. 2 Stars ended up on the wrong side of the scoreboard. Class 3A No. 11 Tri-West capitalized on Star miscues and held on for a 32-30 win in front of a near capacity crowd.

“You have to give Tri-West the credit,” Western Boone head coach Jed Richman said. “They created some turnovers and they do a great job. Coach Coll has a heck of a team and their scheme is very difficult. You just have to tip your hat to them.”

After a scoreless first quarter, Western Boone struck first when C.J. McMann ran it in from five yards out to make it 6-0 after the two-point try was no good.

Tri-West came back with a one-yard run from Jake Hendershot. The Stars blocked the extra point however to keep the score 6-6.

Western Boone needed just seven plays to reclaim the lead, when L.V. Bowden scored on a 1-yard run. The two-point try was good to make it 14-6.

The see-saw battled continued when Hendershot led a six-play 64-yard drive for another Tri-West touchdown, but a missed two-point try allowed the Stars to keep a 14-12 lead.

The momentum of the game swung on the next series. Western Boone was driving looking for a score before the half and faced fourth-and-1 from its own 45.

Tri-West defensive back Nick Phelps perfectly read a quick swing pass and return an interception 45 yards to give Tri-West an 18-12 lead it would take into the half.
