miscue into OT win
VAN BUREN – Van Buren turned a botched PAT snap into a winning conversion pass Friday to edge Hopewell-Loudon 42-40 in overtime in Blanchard Valley Conference play.
The winning play came on the final snap of overtime, moments after Riley Adolph had tied the game on a 1-yard plunge.
The Black Knights lined up for a PAT kick, but the snap went awry. Holder Tyler Saltzman corralled the errant ball, scrambled around and heaved it into the end zone, where Tyler Lambert caught the game-winner.
The play capped a back-and-forth affair.
Hopewell-Loudon struck first, with Sam Stickley scoring the first of his three touchdowns on a 3-yard plunge at the 8:34 mark of the first quarter.
Van Buren tied the game at 7 on Jacob Leal’s 22-yard run a little more than a minute later, but the Chieftains took a 14-7 lead on Zach Kreais’ 3-yard run late in the first.
The Black Knights countered in the second quarter with Adolph’s 21-yard TD toss to Brady Deitrick and Adolph’s 18-yard run, but Kreais bulled in from 5 yards out late in the half to cut the deficit to 21-20. The difference then was a missed PAT kick after that score.
Van Buren extended the lead to 28-20 on Adolph’s 52-yard toss to Deitrick in the third quarter, but H-L answered the fourth by sandwiching Kreais’ 8-yard run and Stickley’s 1-yard dive around Adolph’s 2-yard TD run.
The Chieftains failed on a conversion run after Kreais’ score and Van Buren missed a PAT boot.
But H-L tied the game after Stickley’s score when Kreais found Charlie Dell with a conversion pass.
Hopewell-Loudon scored first in overtime on a 20-yard Stickley sprint, with Van Buren answering with Adolph’s 1-yard toss.
Stickley finished with 120 yards on 26 carries for H-L, and Kreais went 20 for 30 passing for 199 yards. Trent Ardner caught eight passes for 83 yards and Gauge Sadler hauled in seven passes for 81 yards.
