BOWERSTON - In a high school football game that can be considered as highly unique, host Conotton Valley scored with 1:52 left in the game to beat visiting Toronto, 35-32, Saturday afternoon.

The referees threw 39 flags and 33 of those were accepted as penalties toaling 284 yards.

In addition, the referees brought both teams to the middle of the field during the third quarter and had all the players shake hands, before returning them to the sidelines and resuming the game.

In addition, only one Red Knights player had positive yards running the ball. There were 10 combined turnovers and 763 yards of offense.

Toronto fell to 3-5 and hosts Hundred at 7:30 p.m. Friday.

Conotton Valley grabbed that lead late in the fourth quarter thanks to a 25-yard pass from Colton Cottis to Brandon Bailey.

It came 48 seconds after freshman Blaze Glenn teamed up with brother Chez Glenn for a 95-yard score.

The Red Knights scored 17 points in the second quarter on a 13-yard run by Blaze Glenn, a 2-yard run by Chez Glenn and a 21-yard field goal by Joey Chadwick.

Blaze Glenn hooked up with Charles Ross III on a 66-yard strike in the third period.

Glenn completed 13 of 24 for 306 yards, two scores and two picks. Chez Glenn caught five passes for 172 yards and the six-pointer.

Blaze Glenn ran the ball 15 times for 70 yards and was the only Toronto runner with positive yards as four other runners combined for 15 carries for negative-27 yards.

Conotton Valley finished with 298 yards on the ground on 52 attempts.
