Spring Hill 14, Baldwin 12

Baldwin City — Spring Hill scored on its first and last possession of the first half and then held off a Baldwin comeback attempt, spoiling Baldwin’s homecoming.

After holding Baldwin to a three-and-out on the game’s first possession, Spring Hill drove 66 yards for a score.

Senior fullback Caleb McDade finished the drive with a five-yard touchdown run. McDade closed out the half with a two-yard touchdown drive with just 14 seconds left in the half, completing a 34-yard drive.

Baldwin’s offense, held to just two first downs in the first half, came to life in the third quarter. After giving Baldwin the ball with an interception, junior Cornell Brown hauled in a 39-yard pass from senior quarterback Tyler Cawley, cutting Spring Hill’s lead to 14-6.

Cawley found Brown again for a 16-yard touchdown later in the quarter. But Baldwin was unable to tie the score when a two-point conversion failed.

Baldwin had a last chance to pull out the victory when it recovered a fumble on Spring Hill’s 38-yard line with 8:06 to play.

The Bulldogs drove to the 18-yard line, where they were flagged for a costly fourth-down delay-of-game penalty.

That set up a 34-yard-field goal attempt by senior Austin Kraus that fell just short.
