Cheney's Ben McGourin (44) and teammate Dusten Butikofer (17) haul down a University High runner for a loss during Cheney's 28-14 win Saturday afternoon.

SPOKANE VALLEY -- Defensive back Karl Barsness scored two touchdowns -- including a 92-yard interception return for a score with 44 seconds remaining in the game and the Cheney High football team held off University 28-14 in the Greater Spokane League opener for both schools Saturday afternoon.

Barsness's "scoop and score" TD return of a Titans' fumble early in the second half knotted the score at 7. The Blackhawks stout defense gave the offense great field position in the third quarter, which they capitalized on for a pair of running touchdowns and eventual 21-7 lead before a U-Hi kickoff return for a score pulled them within 21-14 going into the fourth quarter.
