Wyoming beats Indian Hill in back-and-forth battle

Friday’s Cincinnati Hills League showdown between Indian Hill and Wyoming had veteran observers of the rivalry recalling the two teams’ epic 2009 matchup, won 50-49 by the Cowboys on a Statue of Liberty play for a two-point conversion with 10 seconds left in the game.

The similarities were Halloween-eerie – regular-season finale, CHL championship on the line, two high-powered offenses, even inclement weather.

The scoring was down, but not the drama. The lead changed hands five times before Wyoming prevailed with a 31-24 win on Bernie Barre Field at Wyoming’s Bob Lewis Stadium.

Junior running back Pierson Rogers scored four touchdowns to lead the defending-champion Cowboys to their 16th CHL championship, including six co-championships while denying the Braves their ninth outright title and overall 11th.

Rogers gave Wyoming the lead for good on a 33-yard touchdown run with 8:39 left in the game and scored the clincher on an eight-yard run with 5:58 remaining following an interception by junior defensive back Perry McMichen.

Junior quarterback Cole Dein threw touchdown passes of 36 and 15 yards to senior wide receiver Colin Shaw for the Braves, the second giving Indian Hill its last lead at 24-19 early in the fourth quarter.

Indian Hill (8-1, 6-0) went into the game ranked third in the Enquirer’s Division IV coaches’ poll and sixth in the Division IV Region 16 Harbin computer ratings. Wyoming (9-0, 6-0) was ranked sixth in the Associated Press Division IV statewide poll, first in the Enquirer’s Division IV poll and third in the Region 16 Harbin ratings.

Indian Hill converted a fourth down with a fake punt on its opening possession before settling for Luke Lundberg’s 36-yard field goal and a 3-0 lead the Braves carried into the second quarter – the first time all season Wyoming trailed at the end of any quarter.

The lead lasted five more seconds before sophomore quarterback Evan Prater scored on a five-yard run as the Cowboys took a 7-3 lead with 11:55 left in the second quarter.

Indian Hill junior punter Logan Persson couldn’t cleanly field a bounced punt snap in the Indian Hill end zone and ended up falling on the ball at the Braves’ one-yard line and Rogers converted on the next play with a one-yard plunge for a 13-3 lead with 9:33 left before halftime.

The Braves bounced back for two late touchdowns and a 17-14 halftime lead. Dein found Shaw at the left pylon for a 36-yard touchdown with 5:10 left in the half, and junior running back John Mark Williams scored the go-ahead touchdown, breaking five tackles on a 28-yard run with 2:29 left in the half.

Indian Hill scored more points in the second quarter than Wyoming had been allowing on average for entire games.

The two teams traded turnovers in the third quarter before Rogers scored on a 14-yard run. Cowboys’ senior defensive back Jared Fox, who recovered a fumbled kickoff return in the second quarter, came up with an interception, but Braves’ sophomore defensive back Alex Lindberg stopped that Wyoming possession with his own interception and Williams recovered a Cowboy fumbled punt return.
