Area football roundup: Blue Devils fall to Bombers

Devils miss late field goal attempt in 9-7 loss.


Neither team found the end zone until the fourth quarter.

On the very first play of the quarter, Brody Dell scored on a 1-yard run. Jake Tragesser’s PAT gave Tipton a 7-3 lead with 11:55 remaining in the game.

On that drive, Tipton unveiled its version of the wildcat, lining Dell up at quarterback. Tipton went 79 yards in 11 plays, all on the ground. Nate Hein had six carries for 49 yards. Dell kept the ball the other five times. He had runs of 11 and 22 yards. He also fought for a half yard on a fourth-and-short to give the Blue Devils a first-and-goal at the 1.

Rensselaer, however, put together a nine-play, 54-yard drive to retake the lead. Rylan Airhood had a big 26-yard run on the play. But the Bombers had to convert on fourth-and-goal from the 2. They did as Wright connected with Dalton Souders on a short out rout for the TD. A bad snap prevented Robertson from tacking on the PAT but the hosts led 9-7 with 4:08 left to play.

Tipton was forced to punt but the defense held and the Bombers punted the ball back to Tipton. The Blue Devils had the ball at their own 20 with 1:21 remaining and no timeouts.

Jack Critser completed passes of 4, 35 and 16 yards to Jake Devendorf, Nate Friend and Dell to give Tipton a first down at the Rensselaer 32 with :05 left to play. The Devils elected to kick a field goal but Tragesser’s attempt was no good.

Dell finished with 22 carries for 108 yards and Hein had 15 for 60. Critser was 4-for-8 for 67 yards.
