It was a battle for a playoff spot and the two teams efforts were deserving of the prize at stake. The Tigers and Bears fought tooth and nail, down to nearly the last play of the game, before it was decided, with the home standing Hardin Northern Polar Bears edging out the Waynesfield-Goshen Tigers by a 21-14 count.
“Our kids fought hard - they battled hard. I told them not to hang their heads,” commented Tigers head coach Shane Wireman. “It was a good football game on both sides, but in the end, they made one more play than we did.”
The fourth quarter opened with the two teams knotted up at 14-all, but after receiving a punt early in the stanza the Bears began was to be the deciding drive of the game.
A 14 yard run by halfback Zac Warmbrod got them off to a great start, and a first down at the Tiger 30 yard line.Three more snaps had Northern at the Waynesfield 18 yard line where quarterback Nevin Robson found Daylin Pees open on a route right down the center of the field for the touchdown. The point after put the home team up 21-14 with 8:05 to play.
