    Post 4 of 4: 4th Quarter Action

    Boone is set up at their opponents 24 to start the fourth quarter. Shutt goes up the gut for 6 yards followed by a dropped exchange between the Center and QB which results in a couple of yard loss. A misdirection pitch to Boden-Bender around the left side gets them to the 20 where the RB is knocked out of bounds and his helmet flies off. There was a penalty against Boone and now the ball is back on the 35 yard line and Boone needs about 21 yards for a first down. Grau pitches to Vastine and they get 5 yards back. The next play Grau is sacked. On 4th down Grau rolls to his left and it appears he has lots of room to run and maybe get a first down. He stops and fires back over to the middle of the field but the receiver was covered and resulted in an incompletion. It’s easy to second guess, but I can understand a QB wanting to make the play with his arm and not his legs because the first down marker was a long ways away.

    Conner took over at their 32 yard line. Webster bounced it to the outside for a 12 yard gain and a first down. The fake to Webster draws the LBs up and Camp slides across the middle for a catch and a gain of 11 yards. First down. Hicks gets in a little trouble on the next play but finds his way through for about 5 yards. But a penalty set Conner back for a 1st and 20. They get 8 yards back on a sliding catch by Cobble. This sets up a long pass down the sideline but Merkel catches it out of bounds. It’s 3rd down and 12 to go. Another long pass to Merkel is broken up but there was pass interference on the play. First down for Conner at Boone’s 32 yard line. They get 12 yards on a reverse to Cobble and first down at the 20. DE RJ Summers tackles Hicks for a loss on 1st down. Hicks fails to catch the next snap and Webster falls on it at the 25 yard line. That brings up a 3rd and 15. Boone blitzes the MLB who is barreling down on Hicks but Conner had called a screen up the seem to Webster who then carried it down to the 5 yard line. Webster then gallops around the right side for a TD on the next play. The kick was good.

    Conner 28 Boone 13

    There is not a lot of time left in the 4th quarter. Conner kicks it out of bounds and Boone begins at their 35. A 4 yard pass to TE RJ Summers nets 6 yards with his second effort. Grau scrambles to his left but has no one to throw to and is sacked at the original line of scrimmage. 3rd and 10. Grau scrambles on the next play and gets boxed in. The ball is stripped and Conner has the ball on Boone’s 30 yard line

    At this point, the 2’s are brought in to finish the game. A nice gain by #32 of Conner, Douglas Abdon, nets a 1st down. He gets the call again and goes just off tackle, makes a couple of quick moves to make guys miss and goes 20 yards for the touchdown. That was a nice piece of running. The Xpt was no good.

    Conner 34 Boone 13. That is the final score.

    Great game summary @oldgrappler. As usual, I feel like I was there. Sounds like Boone could've easily came away with a win. If they can eliminate the small mistakes, they may surprise some teams this year.

    On the play where Boone ran to the 20 yard line. There should of been a flag thrown on the helmet to helmet tackle. I'm not saying a dirty hit, only unnecessary beings it happened at the sideline. The flag that was thrown was for a block in the back against Boone. That was a horrible call. It was a side block. After that play it should have been Boone ball on the 5 yard line first down.

    Do you have access to video of the play? Curious to see it.
