If Danville’s head coach, Russ Sumner, wanted to show his young football team what it takes to become an elite squad, he found the right team to teach them. Unfortunately the lesson was a painful one at the hands of their cross county rivals.
Defending State champion Tri-West defeated the Warriors here on Friday, 59-13, and held claim to the Helmet Trophy for the third consecutive year.
The Bruins were paced by Junior quarterback, Jake Hill, who completed 12 of 21 passes for 266 yards, and three touchdowns.
“We are pretty happy with the outcome, but obviously we are not satisfied with everything we did tonight,” said Bruins head coach Chris Coll. “[Danville] made it kind of tough on us inside. We missed some assignments. But we have some big-play guys, and we were able to get some ‘home runs’ on them.”
Those big plays came in the second quarter with the Bruins already leading 10-0.
