Dukes Fall in a Heartbreaker

Dukes Fall in a Heartbreaker
September 12th, 2021 | Brandon Timoney

The York Dukes lost a tightly contested battle of two run-heavy offenses, and stingy defenses,
17-14 on Friday night at Weiland Field in McCook, Nebraska. It was a game in which both
teams frequently traded punts, and big offensive plays came at a premium.
The Dukes opened the scoring in the second quarter with a 56 yard touchdown run courtesy of a
Dalton Snodgrass direct snap, a formation that Head Coach Glen Snodgrass has used quite a bit
of in the last two weeks against Alliance and McCook. The extra point made it 7-0 in favor of the
Dukes. The Bison responded with a Jacob Gomez-Wilson 83 yard touchdown run. The extra
point tied it at 7-7. The Dukes responded almost immediately with a Dalton Snodgrass short
touchdown run to make it 14-7, York. The Bison were able to tie it up at 14 after a short
touchdown run by quarterback Adam Dugger. The Bison elected to kick a field goal with under a
minute to play, and Patrick Gross converted to give McCook a 17-14 lead, and would hold on for
the win.
Jacob Gomez-Wilson led the attack for the Bison, with 184 yards on 16 carries and a touchdown.
Dugger added 60 yards on 16 carries and a score as well. Dalton Snodgrass paced the Dukes with
69 yards on 8 carries and a pair of scores.
The Dukes (2-1) will play at home next Friday, September 17, against Ralston. Kickoff is set for
7 p.m. on KOOL Radio.
