Schroeder 7, Thomas 6
Alex DeRosa hit Nathan DeMay with a four-yard TD late in the first half and the points stood up as the Warriors won the battle for Webster Friday night.
Marley English scored the only Thomas points with a three-yard run to cap the first drive of the second half. However, the point after snap squirted through the holder’s hands and the Titans remained down a point.
Thomas got their best chance to go in front midway through the fourth quarter. David Petz stepped in front of a swing pass for an interception and set the Titans up in Schroeder territory.
The Warriors stiffened quickly and forced Thomas into a fourth and six. The Titans went deep, but Ryan Sigafoos broke it up.
Thomas forced a punt, but could not move the ball on their next possession and failed on a fourth down at their own 30 with four minutes to play.
Schroeder also could not move the ball and was stopped on fourth down, but not before running the clock down inside a minute.
The Titans were able to move the ball inside the Schroeder 40, but their final snap from the 36-yard line was the Stanford band lateral play and it never got going.
