Late field goal lifts West

BAKER CITY — Dayton's AJ Hedgecock kicked a 42-yard field goal with no time left on the clock Saturday to lift the West to a 31-28 victory over the East in the 60th annual East-West Shrine All-Star Football Game at Bulldog Memorial Stadium 

The West had taken its final possession with 2:49 left in the game and drove the ball to the East 25 with 4.2 seconds left.

Then, after three straight timeouts, Hedgecock, who will play for Oregon State University this fall, booted the ball through the uprights. He had kicked just one other field goal during his senior season.

The East had the only score in the first half, a 62-yard touchdown pass from Dallas Reich to Marcus Lynn. Scott Whispell added the conversion kick for a 7-0 East lead at halftime.

The West then scored 28 points in the third quarter to take a 28-7 edge.

Stephen Bowe and Sonny Tupua scored on short runs. Quarterback David Carr added scoring aerials to Alex Hovelsrud and Hedgecock.

A 79-yard scoring run by Reich late in the period left the East trailing 28-14 entering the fourth quarter.

Reich then connected with Lynn again, this time for 85 yards to cut the deficit to 28-21.

The East then tied the game at 28-all with 6-38 left when Daniel Hammer conncted for 18 yards and a touchdown to Ryan Opie.

The East still leads the overall series 29-28-3.
