Blackhawks beat MVP in overtime

THE BLACKHAWKS showed great team effort with this tackle. Blackhawks involved with this stop were: Chase VonEye (52), Austin Messmer (5), Jevon Hohn (36), Jacob Fouberg (48) and Brady Tiede (53).

The Woonsocket/Wessington Springs/Sanborn Central Blackhawks toppled Mt. Vernon/Plankinton in overtime, 28-22, Friday night at Springs.
The Blackhawks got off to a slow start, giving up 14 unanswered points in the first half. WWSSC finally got their momentum rolling in the final seconds of the half however, with a 57-yard touchdown pass from Joe Davis to Austin Messmer. The two-point conversion failed, leaving the score at 6-14 going into halftime.
MVP kicked off to the home team to start the third quarter and the Hawks were able to keep the momentum on their side. Two minutes into the third Messmer brought the ball in from 54 yards out for the score. Tucker Kingsbury then hit Brady Tiede in the end zone for the extra two points, tying the score at 14.
It became evident that the Titans weren’t giving up that easy when an early fourth quarter drive ended with a 14-yard scoring pass from Deric Denning to Marcus Anderson. MVP regained their lead with a successful conversion by Cote Hinker.
The Blackhawks refused to be shaken and used the run to put together a solid answering drive culminating in a two-yard sneak into the end zone by Kingsbury. Messmer ran in the two-points to tie up the score once again.
The score remained 22-all as the final seconds wound down, despite a good late fourth quarter drive by MVP. The Titans drove to the Blackhawks five-yard line with less than two minutes to play threatening the win, but a big interception by Messmer sent the game into overtime.

TUCKER KINGSBURY makes the long pass during first half action Friday night.

In overtime each team alternately gets a shot to score from the 10-yard line. MVP won the coin toss and got the ball first, but a Titan fumble on the second play resulted in a Hawks recovery and an early change of possession.
A frustrated MVP defense held tough, only allowing the Hawks four yards in their first three downs. But on fourth and six, Davis found Jacob Fouberg in the corner of the end zone for the game winning touchdown.
Messmer ended the night with 94 yards on 11 runs, one touchdown and 10.5 tackles. Kingsbury ran for 50 yards on 14 carries, had five tackles and two interceptions. Joe Davis went six-for-six through the air for 83 yards and two touchdowns.
MVP’s Cote Hinker ran for 289 yards on 30 carries and had seven tackles. Cody Renken added nine tackles and the Titans moved to 0-2 on the season.
The Blackhawks, who improved to 1-1, will enjoy an early bye week and be back hosting Sunshine Bible Academy Sept. 20 in Forestburg for their homecoming.
