Colts deal Vikings 35-13 defeat
The Wooster Colts aren’t quite ready for the glue factory.
After a winless 2009 season, the Colts earned their first victory of the 2010 campaign with a 35-13 triumph over South Tahoe on Saturday in Reno.
Wooster High pulled away from South Tahoe late in the fourth quarter Saturday, scoring 21 points to end the school’s 22-game losing streak.
The Colts hadn’t won since beating Lowry 14-0 in their 2008 season opener. Two of those losses during the losing streak were to South Tahoe – 27-7 in 2008 and 35-32 in overtime last year.
Wooster players celebrated the victory by signing the school fight song to their fans.
The Colts pulled away from the Vikings behind the running of Wyatt Fritz and a key interception by Aramis Bonczyk. Bonczyk returned his pick to the Viking 1 with South Tahoe trying to produce the tying score late in the fourth quarter. Fritz rushed for four touchdowns for the Colts – once the state’s top program year in and year out.
Wooster (1-3) added a final score with 6 seconds remaining to stretch the final margin against its former Sierra Division foe.
South Tahoe stayed within striking range of the Colts going into the fourth quarter behind the running of junior tailback Jacob Stowell. South Tahoe entered the final period only trailing 14-7.
Stowell rushed for 18- and 1-yard touchdowns to account for both of the Vikings’ touchdowns.
South Tahoe (1-3) will play host to Dayton on Saturday in its annual homecoming game.
