Section III Champs Sandy Creek meet their match in State Regionals


he Sandy Creek Comets will forever be 2012 Section III Champions, but their State Regional game did not end in celebration. The # 1 ranked team in the state Tioga pounced on Sandy Creek early and often in what ended up being a 54-13 season ending loss.

Tioga started the game with seven unanswered touchdowns, including three TD runs each from Jesse Manuel and Tyler Spires, to lead 54-0 heading into the 4th quarter. Sandy Creek finally got on the board when Mason McNitt ran in a seven yard touchdown. Comets' quarterback Kyle Fayette then found Justin Bonney for a 27 yard touchdown pass late.
