It was the Tyler Renfrow show this past Friday night as Vina ended its season on a positive note with a 46-28 win over Holy Spirit Catholic High School.
Renfrow ran for four touchdowns and returned a fumble for another. He finished with 319 rushing yards on 48 carries. Renfrow also carried the ball 38 consecutive times in route to the win.
Vina (2-8) scored early and often after having long and sustained drives.
Tanner Miller opened the scoring for Vina, who capped off an 18-play, 73-yard drive with a one-yard touchdown. The drive used 10 minutes, 30 seconds. Renfrow added the two-point conversion for an 8-0 lead.
After a Holy Spirit touchdown, Renfrow took over.
After another long drive, Renfrow scored from two yards out and he also ran in the two-point conversion for a 16-6 lead. Renfrow’s second touchdown came on a 32-yard fumble return, giving Vina a 24-6 lead. The Red Devils led 24-12 at the half.
The teams swapped touchdowns in the third quarter, with Renfrow scoring on a two-yard run for his third touchdown.
Holy Spirit had narrowed the gap to 32-28 before Renfrow sealed the win with his final two touchdowns in the fourth quarter – a one-yard touchdown run and a two-yard touchdown run.
“It is a really good feeling to get that win Friday night, and I’m happy for the seniors to get this win” Vina head coach Luke Childers said.
“I hope we are starting something good here, getting these two wins, and moving into next season hopefully we can build from that.
“We’re going to have to work hard in the off season and come back ready to work next season.”
