YORK – The York (7-2) football team scored on every drive except one in the first half on their way to a 43-13 beating over Crete (3-6) Friday night.
Garrett Snodgrass set the tone early, scoring on the first drive of the game in what would be another night of four total touchdowns for the future Husker. The Duke defense also flexed their muscle, forcing two turnovers.
In the first quarter, Snodgrass found Wyatt Cast in the back of the endzone for a 15 yard strike. The extra point attempt was bobbled and Thomas Ivey scrambled and threw for a two point conversion. Snodgrass would score two more times in the opening quarter on a 13 yard run and a one yard rushing touchdown. Ben Kowalski also go involved and found the endzone on an 11 yard touchdown run. York’s defense pried the football lose two times in the first quarter, one recovered by Reid Hoffman and another recovered by Ty Bartholomew.
The second quarter started just like the first period with a first drive touchdown by York. Maxx Troester bulldozed his way in from one yard out. One of the only miscues by York came late in the second period when Bartholomew botched a punt attempt and was grabbed by Crete’s Thomas Kracl and rumbled in for a 30 yard scoop and score. The Dukes would make up for the fumble and score one more time in the first half on a 12 yard pass from Snodgrass to Hoffman.
The second half consisted mostly of wasting time by both squads. Crete did find the endzone one more time on a one yard rushing touchdown by quarterback Zach Fye.
Crete’s season ends at 3-6.
York end the regular season at 7-2 and will host Alliance in the first round of the playoffs next Friday. It’s a rematch of the first game of the season that saw York beat Alliance on the road, 55-14.
