Dayton Waitsburg Football loses close game against White Swan
September 26, 2019
WAITSBURG– Friday September 20th Dayton Waitsburg (DW) hosted White Swan for their third game of the season. DW won the coin toss and elected to receive the kickoff. They quickly scored on a 51-yard run from #17 Shawn Evans who scored DW’s first touchdown of the season making it 6-0. White Swan would also score on its first possession tying the score 6–6. The next touchdown would come from a 46-yard run from #24 Christian Watson-Solis. The 2-point conversion would be executed by #21 Dylan Blesoe, giving DW the lead again 14-6. Unfortunately, those would be the last points scored by DW.
White Swan’s passing game continued to move the ball in the 2nd quarter and when DW’s defense would force a 4th down it would be 4th and short yardage deep in DW’s territory making the coaches decision to go for it an easy call. #8 Cason Nichols made a great catch for an interception to open the 2nd half but a flag for too many men on the field would give the ball back to White Swan. It was a huge momentum shift in the game.
The 1st half was played very quickly but the 2nd half play was slowed with several penalties. Cason Nichols intercepted another ball in the 3rd quarter but a penalty on DW during the play pushed them back deep into their own territory making the play feel more like a punt instead of the great play it was. The 4th quarter would pass with neither team scoring giving the victory to White Swan.
