Hanna 34 Hillcrest 32
Exciting is the word to describe this game. This one turned out to be the most exciting matchup in the state as these two squads battled back and forth all night long. It took last second heroics from Hanna QB Tyler Brennan as he found wide receiver Devon Stowers with 10.8 seconds left in the fourth quarter for the final margin.
Both teams traded the lead late in the game as both team's rallied from behind and made for the great finish in the closing seconds.
Behind Brennan's passing (248 yards passing) and RB Brandon Williams (106 yards rushing & 49 yards receiving) running the ball the Yellow Jackets were able to escape Hillcrest with the victory. Hillcrest RB Chris Merrill put forth an outstanding effort as well with 25 carries for 171 yards and 2 touchdowns.
