Vernon-Verona-Sherrill 14, Sherburne-Earlville 7
SAUQUOIT – Sherburne-Earlville turned the ball over twice inside V-V-S’s 10-yard line in the fourth quarter, and came up a touchdown short in its season finale Wednesday against V-V-S.
Early in the fourth, a pass from Randy Briggs found Austin Jasper on a pass play, and Jasper was knocked out of bounds at the one-yard line. On the next play, though, S-E fumbled the ball back to the Red Devils.
After forcing a V-V-S punt, S-E drove for the tying scorer again. Briggs, bruised and battered, hit Felix Rodriguez on a pair of passes, the latter to the V-V-S three. An intentional grounding penalty moved S-E back, and Briggs’ third-down pass was intercepted with less than 20 seconds left to end the scoring threat.
