Football: Grandview Tops Eaglecrest 37-36 In Broncos Game Of The Week

By

Grandview (3-2, 1-0) dominated most of the first half.  The Wolves took a 16-0 lead after the first quarter thanks to touchdown runs by Isiah Jackson and Cassius Davis.  In the second quarter Grandview added a field goal and a 10-yard Reece Weber to Dimitri Shewl touchdown to go up 23-0.

That’s when Eaglecrest (3-2, 0-1) came alive.  Quarterback Adan Soto got the Raptors on the board with a one yard touchdown, then found Aaric Witt on a 41-yard touchdown.  Eaglecrest trailed 23-14 at half.

Midway through the third Grandview once again appeared to have the game in hand when Weber threw a 66-yard touchdown pass to Tanner Gentry to put the Wolves up 30-14.

Eaglecrest would score the next 16 unanswered, scoring the tying touchdown and two-point conversion in the final minute of the fourth to send the game into overtime. 

Each team scored in overtime, but Eaglecrest attempted to win the game with a two-point conversion and was stopped.

Grandview hosts Overland next Friday night at 7 while Eaglecrest hosts Smoky Hill Thursday at 7.
