Wellington opens district with 45-20 win over Rose Hill; Mulvane next

first_imgW- Kop 8 run (Jones PAT run). RH- Moore to Moore 28 yard pass (PAT no good) by Tracy McCue, Sumner Newscow — For the third consecutive year, the Wellington football team has won its district opener. Now getting that second district win seems to be the hard part.Wellington did what it had to do against winless Rose Hill, winning 45-20 and getting the 21-point padding needed in a four-team district where points always seem to be in play at the end of the season.The Crusaders will battle Mulvane in a game that will probably again determine Wellington’s playoff fate. Mulvane lost to Ulysses 34-31 after leading in the third quarter, 31-14.The one bit of bad news for Wellington was Remington Gilkey, who had five carries for 58 yards tonight, may be out for the season with an ACL tear.Overall, Wellington sealed victory by playing keep away from Rose Hill. The Dukes would accumulate 217 yards in the second half on 42 plays while holding the Rockets to 13 plays, most on their lone fourth quarter scoring drive.But once again, Wellington’s special teams were exposed. The Crusaders would allow another touchdown, including a 93 yard run by Ross Nolan that sparked a brief period in the second quarter in which the Rockets were kicking Wellington’s tail including a sudden successful passing game.At the half, Wellington was leading 22-13, but it was unclear which team was going to show up to start the third quarter. In the past two games, the Crusaders have gotten off to a tremendously bad start after intermission.This time though, the Crusaders were patient to start the second half and went on 14 play six-plus minute drive that was capped by a Chris Kop touchdown at the 5:47 mark. That would put the Dukes in front 30-13.“I have to hand it to our offensive line,” said Tyler Ryan, Wellington head football coach. “They really played an outstanding game and won this game for us.”After a three-and-out for the Rockets, Wellington would get rolling again and would score a few minutes later on an 8-yard run by Kop after another methodical clock-churning drive.Rose Hill would score two minutes later. But the Crusaders would finish things off with another long drive that was capped by Logan Jones scoring from the 2 with just 28.2 seconds to play.Wellington opened the game scoring three touchdowns to take a 22-0 lead. It was a deficit the Rockets could not overcome. But for awhile in the second quarter it sure seemed like it could. Rose Hill:Moore 10-7, Flannagan 5-30, Hollis 4-16, Wallis 1(-1). Total 20-54.
