Before Zach Schlatterer lined up for a possible game-winning field goal Friday night, he checked the flag at the other end of the field to see what direction the wind was blowing.
He then kicked the ball through the uprights, giving Seymour a 22-20 win over New Albany in a Hoosier Hills Conference game.
“I was kicking it toward the right goalpost,” the sophomore kicker said after his 25-yard kick curled through the uprights for his first field goal of the season.
Just before the winning field goal, Tuwan Payton scored on a 15-yard run with 2:45 remaining to give the Bulldogs a 20-19 lead.
The Owls then received the kickoff and marched 80 yards for the winning points.
