The Creek Wood Red Hawks won a critical regional game Friday night, beating White House 41-10.
The Red Hawks scored touchdowns on their first two possessions, getting a pair of touchdown runs from Danny Stansberry, who scored from three and five yards out. White House drove down the field on their third possession of the game but their drive was stalled when Chase Klotz recorded his first interception of the season.
After the Blue Devils got the ball back with their own interception, they found the end zone when quarterback Andrew Nixon hit Kevin Tate for a 25-yard touchdown, cutting the Red Hawks lead to 14-7.
Sam Askins immediately answered with a 32 yard touchdown run on Creek Wood’s next possession and the two teams went into halftime with the RedHawks on top 20-7.
White House got a 40-yard field goal from Jacob Harper in the third quarter to make the score 20-10 but once again Askins responded with another touchdown run. With the ball on the Creek Wood 43-yard line, Askins took the handoff, broke a few tackles, found daylight and ran 57 yards for his second touchdown of the night. The run put the Red Hawks up 26-10. Askins was the Manhattan Trophies Player of the Game.
Danny Stansberry added his third touchdown of the night, scoring from three yards out and freshman Michael Harris scored his first touchdown of the season, racing in for a 34 yard score.
The win moved Creek Wood to 6-2 on the season with a home game Friday night against Portland.
