Valle Catholic final minute FG in the mud earns another trip to the Dome

PrintThe weather conditions were frightful, but the ending for Valle Catholic
was so delightful. The Warriors outstanding Senior kicker, Devon Kutz,
knocked home a 27 yard field goal with 45 seconds remaining, to send the
Ste. Genevieve Catholic school back to the Edward Jones Dome in St.
Louis for the 7th straight year, 16-13 over Marceline, in a Class 1 Semifinal.

The game was played with temperatures dropping into the 30’s and
northwesterly winds 20-25 mph, bringing the wind chill down to around 20
degrees. To top it off, rain fell all morning mixed with a little snow,
making field conditions extremely muddy.

After a scoreless first quarter, Valle got on the board late in the
first half with a 3 play, 51 yard drive. Sr. QB Connor Basler found Cole
Wood on a catch and run 51 yard TD. It was the first points allowed by
the Tigers in 8 games. Basler threw 2 TD’s on the day, running his total
to 55 on the season. Basler had 244 yards on 16-30 through the air with
1 pick. Kutz’s kick made it 7-0 with 1:44 remaining in the half and that
was the halftime score.

Marceline, with their run-oriented offense. got back into the game on
their first possession of the 2nd half with an 8 play, 60 yard touchdown
drive. It was capped off by a 1 yard run by Jr. FB Duane Avila and with
the Dylan Ewigman kick, it was 7-7 with 8:23 to go in the 3rd.

It stayed that way throughout quarter 3 with the adverse conditions
affecting everything the teams did. Valle regained the lead early in the
4th against the Tigers 3-3 stacked D on a 5 play-62 yard drive as
Garrett Jaegers caught a 29 yard pass from Basler for a 13-7 Warriors
lead and 9:19 left. Kutz’s kick, however, went wide right.

The Tigers countered with a 9 play, 72 yard drive and tied the game as
Jr. RB Jarred Best went into the house from 10 yards away for a 13 all
tie. The kick was blown wide left and it stayed deadlocked with 5:34 to go.

The blue clad Warriors spread came right back down the field on a 9
play, 72 yard drive, culminated by the 27 yard Kutz FG through the
biting crosswind, for a 16-13 advantage with 45 ticks on the clock.

Marceline, who ended 0-3 through the air, had 2 passes picked off by
Cole Wood and Devon Kutz in the final 40 seconds, with Kutz’s pick on
the final play as Valle’s fans erupted with joy.

ground. The Tigers were held to 241 yards, all on the ground, on 51
plays. The Warriors ran 65 plays.

Tristan Huck, Nick Oberle, and Zach Viox. The teams traded turnovers in
the first minute of the game.

Valle penetrated to the Bobcats 10 and 6 in the first half before
fumbling and then turning the ball over on downs. The Warriors out first
downed Thayer 14-3 in the opening 24 minutes, but it was scoreless at
the intermission.

The Warriors finally broke on top early in the 3rd quarter with a 10
play, 61 yard drive, culminated on a 1 yard run by SR. QB Connor Basler
with 7:30 to go in the 3rd quarter. Sr. Devon Kutz added his first of
two extra points for a 7-0 lead.  The blue clad school from Ste.
Genevieve got the ball back two minutes later and went on a 5 play, 63

their own 5 a few seconds later before Matt Griffith went 95 yards for
the only Thayer TD on the day to make it 17-7 with 11:02 to go.

The Warriors Basler had a punt blocked at his own 10 with under 5
minutes remaining, but Thayer settled for a 25 yard Landon Tyler field
goal with 3:35 left.

Valle took over at the Bobcats 44 following a failed onside kick
attempt, but turned the ball over at the Thayer 35 on an ill advised
pass and interception with 40 seconds remaining. Kutz’s pick with 5
seconds to go ended the suspense and the Warriors survived. The Bobcats
had 4 turnovers.

The final SG TD came just :22 from the end of the half following a
Bridges fumble at the Rebel 34. It took 8 plays for Lalumandier to find
Rhinehart on a slant from 17 yards away. SG dominated statistically in
the opening 24 minutes running 40 plays for 269 yards to the Rebels 18
plays for just 124.

Central took nearly half of the 3rd quarter clock to go 80 yards in 11
plays as Bridges snuck it in from inches away on 4th down and then
alertly ran in the 2 point conversion after a low snap for a 20-15 game
and 6:44 left in quarter 3.

Ste. Gen countered quickly with a 7 play, 62 yard drive 3 minutes later
and Lalumandier hit Giesler on a 4th down crossing route for a 26-15
lead. The Rebels scored again less than a minute later as Bridges again
found Harlow down the middle of the field for a 62 yard TD catch and run
to cut the lead back to 26-21 as a try for two failed.

Back came Ste. Gen in the highly entertaining game just over a minute
later with :52 to go in the 3rd as a 50 yard Brewer run set up a 25 yard
tight rope sideline TD jaunt by Lalumandier. He also scored on the 2
point conversion run and the Dragons had a 34-21 lead after 3.

Ste. Gen had a pair of defensive stops in the 4th and put the cherry on
the sundae with 1:28 left as Roe busted into the end zone for his 3rd TD
from the Rebel 27.

Ste. Gen held Bridges to 10-20 passing for 209 yards and 104 yards on
the ground for 313 total. The Dragons were led defensively by DE Morgan
Schenk with 9 tackles.

Much of the credit goes to the Dragon offensive line that features all
seniors, center Leelan Huck, guards, Gabe Harmon and Kade Jett, and
tackles Schenk and AJ Gonz.

The Dragons will host Perryville for homecoming next Friday night.
