(Neb.)- Riverside Runs Past Hay Springs In SixMan Semi-Finals

By: Jeremy Anderson Posted at: 11/03/2017 04:29 PM
(Hay Springs)- On a cold and windy Friday afternoon, Hay Springs saw it's best season in school history come to an end, 82-34 at the hands of Riverside.

The Hawks were in a football semi-finals games for the first time ever following their 26-20 win over Spalding Academy last Friday.

The Chargers scored early and often, jumping out of the gates with a 10-yard touchdown run, plus the two point kick to go ahead 8-0.  Hay Springs answered on it's first drive as Trent Reed scrambled on a broken play 50-yards to pay dirt to pull with in 8-6 after the failed PAT.

Riverside rattled off four scoring drives in a row, all on runs, to push their lead out to 38-6, but on the ensuing kickoff Brody Planasky returned it 48-yards for a touchdown.  The top seed and visitors from Cedar Rapids, Nebraska would put up five more touchdowns before the end of the first half to take a commanding 74-12 lead in to halftime.

With a running clock to start the second half, Hay Springs was able to come out and put up three downs in the second half.  The first was a Baiden Planansky pass to Bryce Running-Hawk for a 71-yard touchdown strike.  Two drives later, Planansky found Running-Hawk again in stride from 36-yards away to cut the deficit down to 74-28.

The final Hawks touchdown came on the legs of Reed on a 30-yard dash to cut the Riverside lead to 74-34, but the Chargers closed out the game with a touchdown run and a safety to advance to the fourth straight sixman title game appearance.

Hay Springs ends it's season at 8-2, while Riverside will play Harvard next week at Nebraska-Kearney.
