Sterling’s Sensational Freshman Runs Rampant over Sedgwick

By Brad Hallier

SEDGWICK, Kan. – Things weren’t looking promising for Sterling on Friday at Sedgwick. Down 14-0, Sterling hopped on the back of a dominant offensive line and freshman running back Zane Farney, and the Black Bears stormed back to win 26-20.

The win improved Sterling to 2-1.

Farney’s 80-yard touchdown run, answering a Sedgwick touchdown, got the Black Bears into the game and cut Sedgwick’s lead to 14-8.

Farney added a 12-yard touchdown run, tying the game 14-14, and his late fourth-quarter 24-yard touchdown run was the final score.

Farney finished with 303 yards rushing on 30 carries.

The Black Bears will get a big test next week in its district opener taking on undefeated and last year’s 1A state runner-up, Inman.
