B2 • SUNDAY SEPTEMBER 22,2002 • THE HAYS DAILY NEWS PREP FOOTBALL MARK COLSON / Hays Dally News Liberal junior tailback Kenny Wilson, right, breaks a tackle by Hays High senior Jude Fox as HHS senior Dustin Harfmann, left, looks on during Friday night's game at Lewis Field Stadium, Liberal rushes past Hays High, 28-7 By RANDY GONZALES HAYS DAILY NEWS Knowing his football team was going to play the top-ranked team in the state, Hays High School coach Kent Teeter just wanted to keep Friday night's game close at halftime, then see what happens. "One of our goals... was to be in position in the second half to win the game," Teeter said of the Indians' Western Athletic Conference opener against Liberal. Hays High scored a late touchdown in the second quarter to trail Liberal by just seven points at halftime. The Indians accomplished their goal — they were close. That lasted all of 19 seconds into the third quarter. Junior tailback Kenny Wilson raced 67 yards for a touchdown on the first play from scrimmage in the second half to boost the Redskins to a two-touchdown lead. That sound you heard was the air rushing out of Hays High's balloon. "That was disappointing ..." Teeter said of Wilson's long scoring run. Liberal went on to defeat Hays High 28-7 at Lewis Field Stadium. The Redskins avenged a loss last year to the Indians, which snapped an 11-game winning streak by Liberal between the two schools. Wilson went on to rush for 155 yards on 18 carries and score three touchdowns. Time after time, the 6-foot, 205-pound Liberal star would bowl over the first would-be Indian tackier before finally being dragged down several yards later. On the TD run to start the second half, Wilson ran over the first Indian who tried to stop him on an off-tackle play, then he bolted to the left sideline, where he outran several Indian defenders to the end zone.

"He's not only strong, but big and fast. "That's a good kid." Liberal (3-0 overall, 1-0 WAG) scored a touchdown in every quarter. The Redskins scored on their first possession on a short field after a fake punt blew up in the Indians' faces. Hays High faced a fourth-and-2 from its own 42-yard line on the opening series when senior Jake Sanders dropped back into punt formation. But the Indians then shifted formation, and ran a toss play to Sanders around right end. The play's timing was thrown off when Sanders hobbled the pitchout, and he was thrown for a 3-yard loss. Teeter said the Indians were trying to catch the Redskins off-guard as they brought players onto the field for the punt return team. "We knew going into the game they would try to block some punts," Teeter said. "We were going to line up in punt formation, shift, run a play "We were trying to slow down their punt block team." After the Redskins took over in,HHS territory, they then marched 39 yards in nine plays, capped by Wilson's seven-yard TD run around right end with 6:09 left in the first quarter. A 13-yard run by senior Ted Diepenbrock on fourth-and-5 from the HHS 21 led to Wilson's score two plays later. Liberal made it 14-0 with 6:54 left in the second quarter when Wilson scored from 14 yards out. The Redskins drove 81 yards in nine plays, highlighted by a 43-yard pass down the middle from junior quarterback Sheldon Pip- ken to senior end Charles Enoch to put the Redskins on the HHS 20. Wilson scored three plays later off right tackle. Liberal tried to get fancy when its next drive stalled, and HHS (0-3, 0-1) took advantage. Pipken tried a quick kick on third-and-23 from the Liberal 30, but the ball traveled only 15 yards, setting the Indians up at the Redskin 45. HHS put together its best drive of the night, going 45 yards in nine plays for the score. Junior quarterback Kyle Parker completed three passes — two on third down — to move the chains and keep the drive alive. His rollout pass to junior tight end Brady Maska for 19 yards on third-and-10 put the Indians on the Liberal 1. Senior fullback Blake Wasinger scored on the next play with 23 seconds left in the first half. Parker's extra point cut the lead to 14-7. • HHS / SEE PAGE B3 Prep Scores .

Trego (2-1), which trailed 13-0 at halftime, used a' 96-yard kickoff return by senior Travis Armbruster and a 50-yard punt return by senior Dusty Beydler to take a 22-20 lead in the fourth quarter. But Norton senior Terry Petrie returned the ensuing kickoff 80 yards for the go-ahead score after Beydler's touchdown. .

Trego was coming off a big win over Smith Center, snapping the Redmen's 55-game regular-season winning streak. Graber wasn't surprised. "They were the team I picked to be the sleeper in this league," he said. Petrie, Norton's speedy tailback, rushed for 98 yards on 27 carries, with a 2-yard TD.

The Sylvan Grove-Sylvan Unified prep senior is listed at 134 pounds on the roster. And that may be dripping wet with all his football gear on. But the Mustangs' senior quarterback played a big role Friday night in an 8-6 win over Victoria. "He's real tough," said Victoria coach Lee Smith. Falcon rushed for 116 yards on 29 carries and scored the Mustangs' lone touchdown, a 4-yard run around right end in the second quarter to knot the game at 66 with 3:28 to play before halftime. But his biggest run of the night came on the 2-point conversion. Falcon scampered around the left side, lowered his head and drove his way into the end zone, giving Sylvan Unified (3-0) the 8-6 lead. The Mustangs were ranked No. 2 in Eight-Man Division II in this week's consensus poll by The Associated Press. Falcon said he didn't know until later in the game just how big that 2-point conversion would be. "Not at the time I didn't," said Falcon, who also completed 6-of- 14 passes for 72 yards and was intercepted twice. "But later in the game, I realized that if we hadn't got that, it would be pretty tough. I got some good blocks on the play and just lowered my head and went to the end zone. That's what coach always tells us to do."

Gottwald took a handoff in the seconij quarter and rumbled just past the line of scrimmage on a first-down play before being stopped by the Sylvan Unified defense. But Gottwald broke the tackle of two players and bolted 33 yards for the game's first score. Gottwald's run up the middle on the 2-point conversion came up short, giving the Knights a 6-0 lead with 10:44 to play before halftime. • VICTORIA / SEE PAGE B3 ZACH LONG / Hiyi Dally Newt Victoria junior Jordan Kuhn, right, tries to escape the grasp of Sylvan Unified senior Zach Falcon in Friday night's game in Victoria. TMP wins 'i MI 3rd straight By EDWARD CARIFIO HAYS DAILY NEWS L ARNED—Thomas More Prep- Marian football coach Gene Flax wants opponents to stop focusing on his team's running game 39 much so he can go back to his tried and true toss-and-trap attack. .,, Until then, the Monarch coa,ch is more than happy to keep surprising teams with the passing game. „,,. A strong early air attack, along with even stronger defense and special teams; led the Monarchs to a 41-13 dismantling of Mid- State Activities Association rival Lamed Friday night. "' TMP-Marian won its third straight to start the season for the first time since 1990. The Indians started the game keying against a Monarch running attack, so TMP-Marian aired it out. The Monarchs finished with 77 first-half passing yar^s and only 86 on the ground. ; i/; "Everybody's trying to take the run away from us, and they've done a pretty good job of it," Flax said. "It's forced us to throw the ball more than I would like to. If you're going to take the run away against us, we think we can throw against you." Things didn't start well for the Monarchs. On the fourth play 'o'f the game's opening possession^ junior halfback Drew Shaver broke off a 66-yard touchdown run to give the Indians an early 7-0 lead. Shaver had 313 yards and was %M- eraging 9.7 yards per carry ' X) • TMP / SEE PAGE Ba ,iv
