Friday night’s Seymour-Evansville Harrison football game came down to the team that scored last was going to win.
Austin Sutton passed to Logan Richey for a 7-yard touchdown pass with 3:55 remaining that broke a 58-all tie and gave the Owls a 65-58 win in the opening round of the Class 4A Sectional 16.
“You look at 65 points, and I’m not sure we could do that a couple of weeks ago,” Owls coach Jeff Richey said. “We just kind of played with a little bit of determination, and we matched them point for point. This was our night to win, and we knew they were going to score some points. We knew their quickness was going to create some problems for us.”
The fourth quarter started with two long scoring plays. On the first play of the period, Evansville Harrison’s Ke’Vontae Sullivan ran 60 yards for a touchdown.
Seymour’s Tanner Belcher then ran the kickoff back 88 yards for a touchdown, and the Owls had a 51-50 lead with 11:35 remaining in the game.
Austin Sutton ran 6 yards for a Seymour touchdown, and Sullivan scored on a 3-yard run, and the score was tied at 58 with 5:49 remaining.
After Richey scored the winning touchdown, the Warriors had one final chance to put a drive together for a tying touchdown, but Seymour defensive back Stephen Holt came up with his second interception of the night to preserve the win.
“Those two interceptions are the first two interceptions of my career,” Holt said. “On the last one, we were in a Cover 3, and the receiver ran a post, and I came off the post. We both went up for the ball, and I was in the right place at the right time.”
