FRIDAY, OCTOBER 16

Football

Lawrenceburg 15, South Dearborn 8 (Eagle Country 99.3 Feature Game) - Defense, timely playmaking and an odd special teams play sum up what was a great defensive battle between these rivals. Lawrenceburg and South Dearborn found it touch to score all night with the Tigers scoring the lone first half touchdown on a five-yard pass from Garrett Yoon to Aiden Gilmour. South Dearborn would take the lead late in the fourth quarter after a Drake Peetz interception set up a seven-yard TD run from C.J. Rogers. The Knights would convert a two-point conversion just to see it called back due to a penalty. With the ball on the 10-yard line, the Knights tried for two again, and again converted on a beautiful pass from Logan Thies to Hunter Hatfield. With under four minutes to go, the Tigers marched down the field and scored the go-ahead touchdown on a Garrett Yoon rushing touchdown. Lawrenceburg tacked on a two-point conversion to get the 15-8 win. Perhaps, the most interesting play of the game came on a SD missed field goal that fell short of the end zone - which essentially resulted in a punt pinning the Tigers at the two-yard line.
