HUTCHINSON – Hoisington inside linebacker Holt Hanzlick and Hoisington coach Zach Baird competed for the winning West team, which won Saturday’s Kansas Shrine Bowl 14-0 over the East squad.

Hanzlick shared playing time with Hutchinson High linebacker Jack Hawver and made two tackles and two assists.

West receiver Ty Sides of Phillipsburg delivered the game’s signature play on a dazzling 59-yard touchdown from Junction City quarterback Andrew Khoury at the 9:07 mark in the first quarter. Sides caught the ball 20 yards downfield, then cutback several times and sprinted into the endzone. Sides caught five passes for 126 yards and Khoury threw for 157 yards.

Both defenses dominated the game until the fourth quarter. Kansas State signee Gaven Haselhorst of Hays High dominated the line of scrimmage and had five tackles, three for losses. Wichita Carroll’s Cade Gatschet had nine tackles and one assist.

The West’s Trevor Erickson of Chapman intercepted a East pass by DeSoto’s Jackson Miller to set up the clinching 15-yard touchdown drive.

Oakley’s hard-running Ethan Abell gained nine yards to set the West up inside the 6-yard line. Clearwater quarterback Tanner Cash powered for a 5-yard touchdown with 4:36 left in the game for a 13-0 lead. Inman’s Carter Brown converted his second extra point.

The East’s Gavin Pieschl intercepted a pass by Khoury. Max Close had four catches for 78 yards.
