Heritage One Step Closer To League Title With 28-21 Win Over Mountain View

Written by Bryan Levesque on October 24, 2009

The Heritage Timberwolves are one win away from a second 4A GSHL co-championship following their 28-21 win over Mountain View Friday night.

Heritage fell behind 7-0 early following Mountain View RB P.J. Jones’s 4 yard TD run. The Timberwolves answered with an 11 play 67 yard drive, capped off by a 4 yard TD run from QB Garrett Grayson. The score ramained 7-7 for most of the first half until Heritage DB Doug Van Aalst picked off Thunder QB Lucas Swanson giving Heritage the ball at the Thunder 42. 9 plays later, Grayson ran in his second TD this one from 5 yards out, giving Heritage a 14-7 halftime lead.

Late in the third quarter, Grayson hit Van Aalst from 28 yards out capping off a 6 play 65 yard drive and giving Heritage a 21-7 lead.

Early in the the fourth, Thunder DB Jeff Carmondy recovered a Timberwolves fumble at the Heritage 42. On the next play Swanson hit Rashan Williams for the score cutting the lead to 21-14. Both teams next exchanged punts before Heritage again looked to put away Mountain View as Grayson ran in his 3rd TD on the night, this one from 37 yards out right up the middle of the Thudner defense giving Heritage a 28-14 lead with 2:29 remaining in the game. Mountain View was not finished yet, as they drove 65 yards in only 4 plays as Swanson hit Andrew White from 27 yards out with 2:06 left cutting the lead to 28-21. Heritage then could not run out the clock, as on 4th down with 8 seconds left in the game, Heritage decided not to punt the ball, but Grayson threw the ball deep attempting to kill the rest of the clock. Grayson’s pass landed incomplete with 1.8 seconds left and gave Mountain View 1 last shot from the Timberwolves 43. Swansons pass was intercepted by Ben Lyons to finally end the game.

With the win Heritage improves to 4-4 and 3-1 in league play. The Timberwolves host Skyview (5-2 4-0) on Friday. With a win, Heritage will be co-champs with Skyview and earn the leagues #1 spot in the playoffs. A loss by Heritage along with a Kelso win and Mountain View win, will still get Heritage the #2 playoff spot. A loss along with a Evergreen win and Kelso loss will put Heritage out of the playoffs. A loss along with a Kelso and Evergreen win would cause a 3 way tie for 2nd, and a tie breaker on Monday November 2nd.

Mountain View drops to 4-4 and 1-3 in league with the loss. The Thunder will play Evergreen as the home team on Friday.

    The mountain view coaches play calling was horrible. 1st down dive every time and every time it got stuffed.

    Well our season is over but we played hard last night. We will bring it vs Evergreen. Heritage I believed would be soft but played us real hard. Grayson cant be contained and is way too good for our young team. Good luck to them.

    Heritage’s defense looked darn good last night though MV players made some nice plays at the end to give themselves a chance! Great job D!

    Good game but.. I’m still waiting the Heritage Offense to burn out the scoreboard. The Heritage Defense once again saved the team by keeping them at 7 the whole game till the very end because of blown coverage. If you were there, you know the scoreboard doesn’t tell the whole story. Heritage basically dominated the whole game and Mt. View scored those two toachdowns with hailmary’s. Heritage is going to have to play the best game of their lives if they want to stay with Skyview come friday.

    you know ive noticed heritage doesnt have a very dominant run game, but to be fair al the teams in the gshl who have effective run games have TIGHT ENDS. heritage should really start to have a formation with a tight end lined up as a tight end not as a reciever. also garret should go under center alot more often. i think that would dramaticly help heritages run game. you cant expect the best run game with only 5 lineman blocking and mabye a runningback here and there.

    the pass game though is outstanding for heritage though.

  7. GSHL Observer on October 24th, 2009 5:21 pm

    Heritage, nice run but you are too one dimensional and will fold when you meet Skyview and any other team that is more physical up front. Great effort but your shortcomings are obvious.

  8. hello on October 24th, 2009 6:50 pm

    Mt. View was pretty physical upfront, which they proved against Skyview in the first game of league play. But I do agree that Heritage needs to work harder running the ball.

    sooo, how bout that 74 from heritage?

  10. sweetness on October 25th, 2009 1:02 am

    What about him?

  11. Football Dad on October 25th, 2009 11:18 am

    You can discuss offense vs. defense all you want. The fact of the matter is this, Becksted needs to use the talent he has been given this year. Throwing the ball left to right 3 yards at a time is not going to win against Skyview. These two teams are evenly matched as far as talent on both sides of the ball. Heritage has to throw the ball down field if they are going to win.

  12. Just Sayin' on October 25th, 2009 12:08 pm

    If you think that these 2 teams are evenly matched talentwise on both sides of the ball, then you have not seen Skyview’s defense. Sorry, but to compare the ‘dark sieve’ defense of Heritage to Skyview’s is probably the funniest thing i’ve heard in a week.

  13. wats up on October 25th, 2009 12:27 pm

    Im sayin hes pretty good.

  14. GSHL Fan on October 26th, 2009 10:27 am

    how is it one step closer to a legue championship? if anything its co-league champs and heritage has to go up against the power house team of skyview. the only player that they have that looks like he could go somewhere is obviously Grayson. but with skyviews defense i dont thik he will be able to work very well.

  15. j on October 27th, 2009 11:06 am

    its dark “SIDE” not dark “sieve”, just lettin ya know

  16. you already know on November 4th, 2009 12:53 pm
