Midway Wins Big Over Harriman 33-6

On senior night, south of the river, in the Emerald Forest, the Green Wave of Midway defeated county and region rival Harriman, 33-6, on Friday. It was a night that Midway celebrated their 11 seniors, and a night that they had a “pink out” to show their support for breast cancer awareness as October is Breast Cancer Awareness month.

Midway started the scoring when they were able to score while only running 2 minutes off the clock, when Emmett Hegland connected with Seth Gordan on a 29 yard touchdown pass. The extra point was good by Sierra Cowell.

Later in the first quarter, Hegland connected on a 6-yard TD pass to Ty Mason on a wheel route that moved the score to 13-0. A penalty moved the extra point back and was missed by Cowell.

After a tremendous kickoff by Cowell, the Blue Devils were backed up inside the 10. A penalty backed them up further when Nasir Stokes broke one through the middle and was off to the races as he out ran everyone to score on a 95-yard rushing touchdown. The Blue Devils went for two and was unsuccessful.

Midway went on to score another touchdown before the half with 1:49 to go when Hegland connected with all-state wide receiver Caleb Goodman on a 40-yard strike. Cowell tacked on the extra point to make it 20-6 at the half.

The third quarter drug along but Midway was able to score just before the end of the quarter when Mason took it in from 14-yards out. Cowell’s extra-point was good.

In the 4th, as Midway was content with running out the clock, Hegland was able to score on a naked bootleg around the left side to take it in from 14-yards out to finish off the scoring, for the final of 33-6.
