Peterson catches two TDs in 42-28 win over Campus – The Hutchinson News

Before the Hutchinson High School football team could turn their attention to next weeks monster showdown with undefeated Maize, the Salthawks had to take care of business against Campus on Friday night at Gowans Stadium.

Tied at 14 late in the first half, quarterback Myles Thompson found receiver Treyton Peterson for a 50-yard touchdown to give the Salthawks a 21-14 lead heading into halftime.

Petersons receiving touchdown was the start of a 21-0 run that allowed the Salthawks to create separation en route to a 42-28 victory.

"That touchdown was especially important because Campus got the ball to start the second half," Hutchinson head coach Mike Vernon said. "I wouldnt say that was the main swinging point of the game, but it definitely helped us."

Of Thompsons 123 passing yards, 110 went to Peterson, including both touchdown passes. On the ground, Hutchinson rushed for 374 yards as a team.

Alec McCuan rushed for 185 yards, while Thompson gained 107 on the ground. Both McCuan and Thompson rushed for a touchdown, as did Jalen Barlow and Anthony Blackwell.

Vernon said Campus did a good job of taking away McCuan and Noah Khokhar on the ground, and praised Barlow and Blackwell for stepping up, especially in the second half.

"Campus did some things that other teams hadnt done to us this year," Vernon said. "We talked about at halftime how some other guys would have to step up. Im super proud of Barlow and Blackwell. Theyve been super selfless this year with blocking, and tonight they made some plays."

Campus struck first on a 63-yard touchdown run from Christian Sicard to take a 7-0 lead. The Salthawks responded with an eight-play, 88-yard drive that was capped off by a 7-yard touchdown from Thompson.

Blackwell put the Salthawks up by seven on a 5-yard score early in the second, but Campus answered on an 8-yard touchdown pass by Braelyn Jay to Jacob Rymer.

Tied at 14 with 14 seconds left in the first half, Peterson caught a pass on a comeback route, turned inside and made a man miss, then beat the safety deep for a 50-yard touchdown to give Hutchinson the lead at halftime.

A 3-yard rushing touchdown from Barlow and a 13-yard touchdown pass from Thompson to Peterson put the Salthawks up 35-14. McCuan scored a touchdown late in the fourth, and the Salthawks held on for a victory.

The Salthawks are now 6-1 on the season and 4-0 within the Ark Valley Chisholm Trail League Division I. All eyes will be on Hutchinson next Friday when the Salthawks host Maize (7-0, 5-0 AVCTL DI) next Friday to end the regular season.

"Were going to have to play mistake-free we cant turn the ball over or have stupid penalties," Vernon said. "Were also going to have to get off the field on third down. Thats our recipe to win every week, it doesnt matter who it is.

"Its going to be a great night of football in Hutchinson, Kansas at Gowans Stadium."
