YORK – A combination of Garrett Snodgrass and aggressive defense, led the York (4-2) football team to a, 42-21 homecoming victory over Hastings (3-3), Friday night.
With the victory, the Dukes snapped the Tigers three game winning streak.
Much like the week before in Beatrice, York quickly found the scoreboard on their first drive. Snodgrass connected with Brady Danielson for a 5 yard touchdown pass. The Dukes would never look back.
In the second period, Hastings would tie the game on a six yard pass from Alex Swoboda to Zade Weidner for what would be one of the more complete drives of the game for the Tigers. However, the momentum for Hastings would quickly be halted by the York secondary. On the next two drives for the Tigers, Swoboda threw two interceptions, one to Reid Hoffman and another to Jeb Lucas. Both first picks this season for the duo. The Lucas interception came with only 14 seconds to play in the first half. Two plays later from the Hastings 27 yard line, Snodgrass found Danielson on a fade to the back corner for a 19 yard touchdown. York led, 21-7 after two quarters.
The third quarter saw the Dukes put the game away, scoring on all three drives. Snodgrass would rush for two more touchdowns and Jacob Diaz also found the endzone on a two yard rushing touchdown. The Diaz touchdown was set up by a Hastings fumble on the kick return.
Hastings would score two times in the fourth quarter, but the game would be far out of reach.
The defensive line for York came alive too. Noah Stafursky and Brayan Rodriguez combined for five sacks.
Snodgrass ran for 111 yards while passing for 118 and scoring five total touchdowns. Danielson had five catches for 67 yards.
Swoboda threw for 89 yards and two interceptions. He came into the game with only two interceptions on the year. As a team, Hastings would only rush for 29 yards.
York hits the road to Northwest next Friday. Hastings returns home for a game with Seward.
