West Canada Valley runs past Cooperstown

Dolgeville next up for CCS football

(Continued)

In the second half, the Indians got 22 yards on Grogan’s kickoff return to start at their 37-yard line. On the seventh play of the drive Moody found Grogan in the right-corner of the end zone for a 17-yard touchdown pass. Louis missed the extra point, and West Canada led 27-0 with 7:51 left in the quarter.

Booan threw his second interception on the second play of the next series. Tyler Grogan made a diving catch for the turnover. West Canada started bringing subs into the game at this point, but still scored in six plays. Treyton Borden had three carries for 34 yards on the drive, including a 16-yard touchdown with 3:40 left in the third quarter. Louis made the extra point to make it 34-0.

Cooperstown moved into Indian territory on the next drive but Booan’s fumble was recovered by Adam Congden to end the drive and the quarter.

West Canada gave the ball right back to Cooperstown as Trentin Carentz recovered Borden’s fumble. But Cooperstown went three and out again.

Cooperstown finally got a sustained drive on its final possession. The team went 55 yards on 10 plays, including a 20-yard run by Lucas Lyons and a 13-yard run by Joe Harmon. But Cooperstown stalled in the red zone, and tried a field goal with time running out. Lyons’ kick was blocked by Zach Woods.

For Cooperstown the stats were bleak. Booan, the sophomore quarterback who played admirably in his first start, was 0-for-6 with two interceptions and a fumble. The team had just 95 yards on offense overall, all on the ground. Lyons had 69 yards rushing and Harmon had 21.

Lyons had 10 tackles and 106 yards on kickoff returns. In addition to Carentz’s fumble recovery, the Cooperstown defense stopped the Indians twice on fourth down. Late in the first half, on third and 11, E.J. Perez ran down Moody from behind, giving him only a 3-yard run. Then, late in the game, Cooperstown stopped a West Canada drive at the Cooperstown 21 when Tyler Grogan was swarmed in the backfield.
