Cowboys end three game skid, defeat East Sac 32-16
Sann scores three TD’s, passes for one more
Playing a good all around game, with a mix of running and passing, the Clarion-Goldfield-Dows varsity football team snapped a three game losing streak with a nice 32-16 home victory over East Sac County. The win still keeps them in the hunt for a district playoff berth, but they will need some help from others to make it happen.
“East Sac plays hard, and has good players,” said head mentor Paul Hansch. “We kept them in check defensively, while our offense controlled the time of possession. It felt more like traditionally what Cowboy football has done in the past. We executed two 90-yard scoring drives, and the line did a good job for our backs that ran hard. It was nice to see Gavin Disney score that touchdown. We kept them off balance with our passing.”
The Cowboys took the ball first to start the game, only to have a nice drive stall at the Raiders 11 as they turned it over on downs. East Sac would have even worse luck on their first possession, punting it back to set the red and black up at their own 34. It was on that drive that Sann lofted a pretty pass to Disney, who caught it in stride and rumbled downfield for a 61-yard touchdown. Sann then scored the two-pointer to make it 8-0.
