Culver survives gridiron war with Whiting

October 30, 2010

CULVER — Less than 7 minutes into the game, it was plain to see this one would be a war.
Whiting and Culver both scored on their first two possessions to put the score at 14-all by the 5:34 mark of the first frame, and even with the Cavaliers leading 42-21 with just over 8 minutes on the game clock, the outcome was still up for grabs.
The Oilers scored twice within a 13-second span of the fourth quarter off a Noe Torres 1-yard plunge and a recovered onside kick resulting in a 55-yard catch-and-carry by leading receiver Steve Kieltyka that cut the Cavs' lead to 42-35 at the 6:44 mark, then put themselves in position to score again on a second and goal at the Culver 8-yard line with 39.8 seconds remaining and all the momentum in the world.
Culver junior defensive back Johnny Anderson intercepted a Matt Aponte pass just outside the end zone, however, and Culver held off a Whiting squad eager for a reprisal of last year's Sectional 33 championship loss, 42-35 at home Friday.
"Great play by Johnny," said Culver head football coach Andy Thomas. "We were hoping we'd have a safety step in front of something like that all night, but it's tough because you can't get nosy because they've got guys behind you. They really put you in a bind in the run and the pass. We finally had somebody roll the dice and make a play, and we survived."
