Class 5A: Hutchinson 45, Gardner-Edgerton 14 (7:28 4th)

By Taylor Eldridge

3rd Quarter

Hutch looks to have locked this game up now up 35-14. Hutch took advantage of a short field and scored on a Deveon Dinwiddie 12-yard run. He has 10 runs for 175 yards, but that last run might have been his most impressive. He was wrapped up by three defenders it looked like for a short gain, but he somehow wiggled himself out of the tackle and ran in for the score. That has to be devastating for Gardner.

Gardner’s next drive was doomed from the start. Hutch squibbed it and GE took it, but ran backward and was tackled by Ben Heeney on its own 9. Three runs resulted in nothing and the punt was shanked. Now its Hutch ball on the GE 15 looking to put this game away.

Gardner’s first drive ends on a deep pass that was intercepted by Hutch’s James Jones. The Salt Hawks take advantage a few plays later when Deveon Dinwiddie takes a toss out left for a 59-yard touchdown run. It’s Hutch 28-14.
