Colton falls to Sheridan 14-6
The Colton Viking football team came out on the short end of a hard-fought game against Sheridan Thursday night.
Both offenses struggled against the other's defense and it would take a bit of razzle-dazzle on Sheridan's part to secure the winning 14-6 margin.
Sheridan got things started in the first quarter on a 46-yard pass play on a fourth-and-10 situation.
Fortunately, Colton didn't feel any ill effects from the big play and promptly marched down the field to tie the score at 6-all on a nine-yard touchdown run by Lance Gunter up the gut of the Sheridan defense.
In the second quarter, Sheridan would get what proved to be the winning points on a double-reverse that broke open for a 39-yard touchdown scamper. They then tacked on the two-point conversion to make it 14-6, which is where it stayed until the final whistle.
"It was a hard-fought, fun battle of a game," said head coach Brynie Robinson. "I am proud of our players efforts and development as players and men."
Up next for Colton (1-2 in league, 1-2 overall), is a non-league match-up with visiting Culver. This will also be a Thursday night game, but will begin at 5 p.m. instead of 7 p.m.
