Alan Perry’s 1-yard touchdown pass to Zach Carpenter followed by a 2-point conversion pass to Tyler Bullard lifted the Seymour Owls to a 36-35 homecoming win against Floyd Central at Bulleit Stadium on Friday night.
That 15-play drive followed a 27-yard TD for the Highlanders that put them on top 35-28.
Both teams scored one touchdown in the third period, with Perry scoring on a 4-yard run.
The first half was filled with big plays, beginning with the opening kickoff return.
Evens Cribs received the kickoff at the 10-yard line, and he handed off to Nathan O’Mara, who carried the ball to the FC 25-yard line.
Five plays later Alan Perry passed 8-yards to Jackson Morris for a touchdown, but the Owls missed the PAT.
The Highlanders came right back on a 64-yard pass from Matt Weimer to Trevor Clark for a TD.
A pass interception set up a FC field goal, and the Highlanders used another long pass lager in the opening period for a TD and a 16-6 lead.
