Tigers Dismantle Patriots on Senior Night

Posted: Wednesday, Oct 16th, 2013

Lusk Tiger #23 Matt VandeBossche runs the ball with style against the Patriots.

The Wyopreps.comís second ranked Tiger football squad improved to 6-0 on the season with a resounding win last Friday night against the fourth ranked Upton-Sundance Patriots. It was senior night as Dakota Clark, Dax Dockery, Hunter Dockery, Kolby Eddy, Garrett Smith, Bryce Sturman, Matthew VandeBossche and manager Willow Waldock were honored with their families before the game. The cold, windy conditions on Gibson Field at Fullmer Stadium forced several fans to their vehicles to watch the game.

NCHS struck first when H. Dockery found a wide open M. VandeBossche for a 45 yard touchdown. Brady Thurston missed the PAT, but the Tigers efficient score on the fifth play of the game was a sign of things to come. Dockery connected with Sturman for a seven yard touchdown pass later in the quarter, as Derick VandeBossche caught the two point conversion from H. Dockery. After one quarter the NCHS lead had been established at 14-0.

M. VandeBossche continued his late-season surge with another game of multiple touchdowns and 170+ rushing yards. His 77 yard run right through the heart of the Patriot defense in the early moments of the second quarter seemed to break the visitorsí spirits. Thurston kicked the point after for the 21-0 lead. 58 seconds later Thurston gathered in his third interception of the season near midfield. NCHS took advantage as Logan Lamar took the reverse handoff 16 yards into the endzone. Thurston kicked the point after to extend the lead to 28 points.

On the Patriots next snap, Zach Venable fell on his first of two fumble recoveries to put NCHS in scoring position again. Martin Fitzwater did the hard running and scored from two yards out. Thurstonís kick was wide left but fans were looking at a 34-0 halftime lead.

After the teams traded fumbles early in the third quarter, M. VandeBossche scored from three yards away, and while Fitzwater was stopped on the two point run, the lead was at 40 points. As the quarter wound down, Lamar stepped in front of an errant Patriot pass and returned it 23 yards. The final Tiger touchdown came with just 27 seconds left in the third quarter as H. Dockery hit Thurston for a four yard play. The snap went bad but the Tigers won 46-0.
