The 45th annual Kansas Shrine Bowl game took place Saturday evening from Pittsburg State University and it was the East squad who avenged last season’s crushing defeat with a 21-14 win over the West.

Two area players suited up for the East squad in Nemaha Central’s Mitchell Henry and Marysville’s Jack Blumer, while Hanover’s Carlos Emanuel suited up for the West.

The East jumped out to a 21-0 lead in the first half on three rushing scores, as former Marysville quarterback Jack Blumer ran it in from a yard out with 14 seconds left in the half to finish of the scoring for the East.

The East couldn’t manage a score in the second half, and had to hold off a late rally by the West who pulled within one score with 10 minutes remaining but couldn’t find a way to tie the game.

Blumer was named the MVP of the West squad for his performance at quarterback, as the former Bulldog finished 5 of 9 passing for 66 yards while also rushing for 38 yards and a score.

Mitchell Henry rushed four times for six yards, while on defense finishing with five tackles and a half tackle for loss.

Carlos Emanuel also finished with a couple of tackles on defense, while Nemaha Central head Coach Warren Seitz and Sabetha head man Garrett Michael coached the East to the victory as Seitz was the head coach of the squad.

The win also marked the third win for the East in the last four years.
