IDAHO SPRINGS — It was as repetitive as it was effective. Platte Canyon sophomore quarterback Allen Hardey taking the snap and fighting his way up the middle time and again.

“We saw that they couldn’t stop it, (so) why not do what they can’t stop,” first-year Platte Canyon head coach Lance Gunkel said.

It worked like a charm, ending with Hardey’s 4-yard TD run — his third touchdown of the game and seventh run on an eight-play, 67-yard drive. Hardey’s score gave Platte Canyon the game’s only two-touchdown lead en route to a 38-28 victory Friday night at Golddigger Stadium, spoiling Clear Creek’s homecoming.

The Huskies (1-4 overall, 1-0 1A Foothills) overcame three turnovers to win for the first time this season in the penultimate game in the 61-year history of the iconic field, which is under contract to be sold.
