Van Buren loses heartbreaker at Highland

By Justin Webster | Oct 03, 2017

RIVERSIDE - Donny Roberts had 139 yards and two touchdowns on 20 carries Friday night for Van Buren, but the Warriors couldn’t grab victory as Highland held on 13-12.

Greg Wenke added 39 yards on the ground, and another 49 through the air on 5-13 passing. Two of those completions were to junior wideout Taylor Bartholomew for 15 yards, while senior Andrew Fitzsimmons, sophomore JT Metcalf, and senior Donny Roberts had one catch a piece.

Defensively, junior Aiden Franklin made 10.5 stops to lead the way. He was joined in most of the piles by Brycen Mineart, Ty Hamburg, and/or Corey Bunnell who had 6.5, five, and 4.5 tackles, respectively. Up next for Coach Mike Hurley and his squad is a road trip to 4-2 Regina Friday to face the fourth-ranked Regals.
