Wapsie Valley takes rivalry game with Denver

Posted:
FAIRBANK (KWWL) -

The Wapsie Valley Warriors raced out to a big lead and held on to win 25-14 after a furious 2nd half comeback by their rivals from Denver.  On the first possession of the game, the Warriors Mitchell Boevers hooked up on a 45-yard pass play with Kenny Saulsberry to put Wapsie up 7-0.  In the 2nd quarter, the Warriors' Tyler Odnel took a handoff up the middle for 30 yards.  That put the Warriors up 13-0.  They would put another score on the board before Denver gained momentum thanks to a Joe Frost score on 4th and short by the goal line.  On the ensuing kickoff, the Cyclones recovered a fumble.  On that possession, Frost would hook up for a 30-yard TD on 4th down with Marcus McMahon.  That would cut the lead to 19-14.  After regaining possession, the Cyclones were looking to take the lead but slippery conditions and a tenacious defense forced a fumble recovered by Alex Goeller.  The Warriors would put away the game with a late TD and win 25-14.
