West wins: CHaD East-West All-Star Football game goes into OT
The game was tied at the end of regulation, and then Goffstown tailback Connor Benjamin scored on an 8-yard run in overtime to hand the West a 13-7 victory at the University of New Hampshire's Cowell Stadium.
The same overtime format used in NHIAA football games was used Saturday. Each team had a possession from the 10-yard line. The East had the ball first and moved to the 1 before Exeter's Jamie Vogt fumbled on third down.Benjamin's TD run came two plays later.
The West had a chance to win the game in regulation, but Portsmouth's Rick Holt blocked Zach Ziemba's 41-yard field goal attempt as time expired. Ziemba, who played at Manchester West, made the point-after kick following the West's first TD.
"Real good football game," East coach Bob Camirand said. "Obviously we were disappointed losing, but I can live with this. It was a great effort on both sides. Two quality teams and I thought two well-coached teams."
The East's best scoring chance in the first half was a 35-yard field goal attempt by Exeter's Logan Laurent that was wide left.
