FINAL PLAY TO WIN
Friday night, I saw one of the great high school finishes â€“ in any sport â€“ that
I have ever had the privilege of watching. I will quickly recap the first three-and-
half quarters to setup the great finish.
Zane Trace came out with a good game plan which included a full-house
backfield as they attempted to run the ball down Huntingtonâ€™s throat. The
Pioneers were successful in terms of yardage, but Huntington was able to force
three Zane Trace fumbles on the night to flip the momentum in the favor of the
Huntsmen. The Zane Trace running game milked a lot of the clock which
shortened the game, and then the before mentioned turnovers kept the Pioneers
out of the end zone.
Huntington scored the first two touchdowns of the game â€“ both on Brice
Vickers TD passes with one to John Mainers and the other to Austin Dyer â€“
to take a 14-0 lead. Zane Trace came back to score twice as quarterback Ian
Carle threw two TDs to Colton Whitehouse to tie the game at 14-14.
Huntington added a late score on a Vickers to Mainers pass play that resulted in
a great one-handed grab for a TD to take a 20-14 lead at halftime.
Carle found the end zone in the second half to give Zane Trace a 21-20
advantage as the game stayed this way until late in the fourth quarter. Huntington
had the ball when they turned it over on downs as the clock ticked under two
minutes, and it appeared the game was over with ZT winning it by one.
On the ensuing possession, Zane Trace went up the middle and had a first down
that would have ended the game, but Carle continued into the end zone. After a
blocked extra point kept the lead at 27-20, Huntington received another chance
to tie or maybe even win the game.
Vickers moved his team quickly down the field, and the Huntsmen eventually got
the ball down inside the 10 yard line. Huntington nearly scored on a Ronnie
Hettinger run with about 12 seconds to go, but the Huntington running back was
stopped at the goal line forcing the green and white to take its final timeout. On
the final play, Vickers was looking for his favorite target Mainers in the left side
of the end zone, but Whitehouse was able to record the INT to secure the 27-
In the win, Carle ran for 64 yards and two touchdowns while throwing the two
to Whitehouse as well. For Huntington, Vickers threw for 232 yards and three
touchdowns. Mainers caught eight balls for 125 yards and two TDs.
John Vanderpool and Storm Cottrill combined to
rush 26 times for more than 250 yards as Unioto
outscored Piketon 21-12 in the second half to
record its second straight win. Both also scored a
TD while Vanderpool threw two TDs to Steven
