West Football Gets Key District Win

Posted: Updated:

Big Thursday night game for West football here.
I was at Memorial Stadium as the Warriors faced Carroll. Tigers with the ball first, first play from scrimmage, Ramsey Villarreal, picked off by Chase Patek at the Carroll 14. That would lead to a one-yard TD for Donovan Harris. 30 seconds into the game, West up 7-0. Tigers in the red zone, Jayden Smith, twisting and turning for the Carroll touch....but he fumbles into the end zone. Brandon Gonzales picks it up for the Warriors and takes it back to his own 31. That would lead to West's next big play. Tyvon Hardrick, 43 yard touchdown. 14-0 West ahead after a quarter. Second quarter, Villarreal with the one yard quarterback sneak to put Carroll on the board. The Warriors then picked a big time for two big plays. First, Harris, going deep, finding Julien Edwards for a 46-yard touchdown. West back up 21-6. Next Warrior drive, Hardrick gets loose again, this time for a 37-yard touchdown. Warriors up 35-6 at halftime.
The score in from Memorial Stadium. It's a final. 
West takes it 49-13. Warriors now 2-2 in district.

First-year Nebraska coach Scott Frost says the transfer by three of his former players to Oregon State has grabbed his attention.
Linebacker Avery Roberts, quarterback Tristan Gebbia and receiver Tyjon Lindsey all left for Oregon State. Frost earlier this month listed Oregon State as one of the schools Greg Bell couldn't transfer to as a condition of granting the running back's scholarship release.
It's against NCAA rules for representatives of a school to contact a player from another school about transferring. Frost says he has "no doubt" the Husker transfers were in touch with Oregon State contacts.
Oregon State spokesman Steve Fenk says the school had no comment.
