Late-game heroics lift Dodge City over Salina, 34-31




Special to The Telegram

A solid effort on defense and a game-winning field goal by newly-signed kicker Adam Fambrough lifted the Dodge City Law to a 34-31 victory over the Salina Bombers on Saturday night at the United Wireless Arena in Dodge City.

The victory evened the Law's record at 2-2 for the season while the Bombers suffered their first loss in four outings. The Law travels to Bloomington, Ind., for a 7:05 p.m. kickoff against the Edge on Saturday.

The Law jumped out to leads of 12-0, 18-7 and 31-23 before the Bombers squared the score at 31 on a 10-yard connection between quarterback Damien Dunning and Keith Valentine late in the final quarter. But the Law were able to squeak out the win with the last-second kick after a 26-yard reception by Dominique Carson and 11-yard run by Joshua Floyd put Fambrough in close enough range to seal the win.

"Our last two games were pretty rough on us," Law head coach Sean Ponder said after his team broke a two-game skid. "It feels great to be able to put a mark in the win column again and to keep the Wagon Wheel in Dodge City."

The Wagon Wheel Trophy will be awarded to the winning team each time Dodge City and Salina play each other.
