In a back-and-forth 4A quarterfinal game, whose outcome was dependent on the final minutes, an extra point proved to be the difference on the scoreboard between a Skyline Falcons win and the Pine Creek Eagles forcing overtime.
The game started with strong defensive stands from both, but the Falcons defense in the final minutes sealed their victory.
Neither team lead by more than a score. The Eagles struck first on goal line leap from Max Lofy late in the first quarter; however, the Falcons would come storming back with two unanswered scores of the their own from receiver Kyle West and running back Jeremy Hollingsworth.
The two teams would head to the locker room after the first half knotted 14-14.
Skyline running back Hollingsworth ran with purpose, keeping his senior year playoff hopes alive with each yard. He would tack on his second touchdown of the game late in the third for the 21-14 lead, his 20th of the year for the Falcons.
Fast forward, six minutes left in the game, Eagles quarterback Gavin Herberg connected with Daniel Bone for six. All the Eagles needed was an extra point to tie it, but the kick was wide and Pine Creek trailed by one in the fourth.
A few minutes left in the game, Eagles ball, Pine Creek would surrender the ball on a costly fumble (their third turnover of the half) to help the Falcons seal their fate.
The No. 9 seeded Skyline Falcons upset the No. 1 Pine Creek Eagles to play the No. 5 seeded Ponderosa Mustangs in the semifinals.
