North Tonawanda outlasts Tonawanda in 103rd T-NT game

(Continued)

Tonawanda News — Gross was proud of his team, as well, saying each player gave everything he had. 

He said the game came down to a few mistakes and a couple of breaks that didn't go Tonawanda's way.

"In any football game there are between seven to 12 plays where if three of those go a different way they can affect the outcome," Gross said. "They put the ball on the ground four times and recovered it every time. We had a fumble and an interception. We needed some breaks.

"I give NT a lot of credit for playing a great game," he continued. "They did a lot of things very well."

Boling finished with seven catches for 133 yards and Pumm had 59 yards receiving. Senior running back Tyler Hughes only managed 54 yards on 20 carries, but was a work horse for the Warriors. 

Jacks quarterback Chris Woodard only threw four passes in the game. 

Gross said that the game itself was exactly what it's supposed to be and everybody involved should be proud.

"That's the way a T-NT game is supposed to be, down to the end," Gross said. "To hold up our end of the rivalry, every T-NT game has to be competitive like that one. I think the Twin Cities got a great football game tonight. We all continue to be proud of this rivalry and this game."
