football 1113Blue pursuit with Mogyorosi, Sill, Santiago and Crandall
Two minutes and ten seconds into the Section IV championship game against the Newfield Trojans Lansing Junior quarterback Ben Vincent took the ball 34 yards with blocking help from Thor Wierson and Jake Babcock for the first Bobcat score. Senior kicker Tristan Lyndaker made the successful point after kick and a 7-0 lead. Who needs the NFL Steelers when Lansing has its own version of Big Ben. The team came through to help make it a Big Ben start. Vincent scored additional first quarter runs of 69 and 52 yards.

Down 20-0 early in second quarter and having defensive end Brendan Mogyorosi sack the Newfield quarterback the Trojans called a timeout to regroup. The timeout set up an 87 yard pass play for a much needed Newfield score. Vincent tested his own throwing accuracy with a strike to Lansing wideout Jake Brotherton which set up a 6 yard TD by tailback Jake Babcock. One play after a Lansing fumble Newfield quarterback Arthur Hardison connected on a 52 yard touchdown pass to Joshua Wood to cut the Trojan deficit to 27-14 with over five minutes remaining until half. After exchanging back to back to back fumbles between the two teams in a two minute span the Bobcats Vincent eventually hooked up again on a rollout left with Brotherton and this result was a 23 yard TD and a 34-14 lead at the half.
