Chiefs fall to Crest Ridge in tough matchup
Santa Fe 22
Crest Ridge 54
A tough matchup for the Santa Fe Chiefs yielded less-than-stellar results on the scoreboard, as the Chiefs fell to the Crest Ridge High School Cougars, 54-22. However, the game did provide positive growth for the squad.
Dakota Boehmer had ample opportunities to chuck the pigskin. The Chiefs junior skins-linger went 12 of 24 for 201 yards, with two touchdowns and interceptions apiece. He targeted Tanner Begemann, who had a monster game for Santa Fe. The senior caught seven passes for 171 yards and both of Boehmerís touchdown passes. Junior Logan Tracy also brought down three passes for 29 yards.
Santa Fe got their biggest contribution to the ground game through Boehmer, who took seven carries for 57 yards. Sophomore Jacob Montgomery also punched in a touchdown on one of his six carries, ending with 26 yards.
Begamann led the team in tackles, ending with 13 total (12 solo). Senior Caleb Bergmann had 6.5 tackles (four solo).
A Crest Ridge team that hopes to find themselves deep in the playoffs advance to 1-1 (1-0) with the Week 2 win. Their Week 1 loss came at the hands of a solid Archie High School program that fell to the Cougars in last seasonís opener, 7-6. Crest Ridge will collide with Knob Noster in Centerview next week.
Santa Fe falls to 0-2 (0-1) with the loss. They will link up with Lone Jack High School next week in the second installment of their I-70 Conference season.
