Yerington wins first 3A game in two years

Staff Reports


Yerington won its first Northern 3A game in two years as Randy Shumate was the star for the Lions.

Shumate caused a fumble on a punt that was recovered by Matt Galvin. That set up Lucas Mudloff’s game-winning 37-yard field goal with two minutes left in the contest.

Shumate also scored on a 9-yard run that tied the game 6-6 in the second quarter. Shumate rushed for 79 yards on 11 carries. Shawn McCarty and Tom Menesini combined for four receptions for 78 yards. McCarty also intercepted a pass for the Lions.


Dayton gave the Northern 3A power all it could handle before falling. Jake Deen completed 10-of-18 passes for 147 yards, including a touchdown pass to Dylan Morris, who had three catches for 70 yards.
