Wyoming East has the shovel back.
The AA No. 7 Warriors beat arch rival Westside, 35-6, on Friday night at New Richmond to win the Battle of the Coal Shovel for the first time since 2007.
East QB Aaron Griffith threw for 210 yards and three scores and the Warriors defense shut down Renegades running star Mike Mullens.
Griffith’s 35-yard TD strike to Jacob Dulcie on the first offensive series of the game set the tone for the contest. Dulcie caught a two-yard pass in the end zone just before the half to make it 14-0.
Christian Hedinger’s long punt return early in the third set up a 24-yard Griffith-to-Hedinger touchdown throw.
Griffith ran two yards for a TD and Nik Walker went 45 yards for another as East pushed the lead to 35-0.
Mullens made a 62-yard halfback throw to Corey Bowles late in the game to put Westside in scoring position. Mullens scored from four yards out on the next play.
Hedinger had five receptions for 105 yards, and Dulcie caught four passes for 84 yards. Walker led the East running game with 67 yards and a TD on two carries.
Mullens rushed for 87 yards and a touchdown for Westside. Bowles had a 62-yard reception.
