Geneva trailed 41-22 late in the game, but finally caught all the right breaks. Timothy McReynolds exploded with a kickoff return for a touchdown. This brought the Panthers within 11 points of that team from the east.
The Panthers then recovered an onside kick, but the officials called it back on a delay of game. The Panther defense then showed up causing a Slocomb fumble which was recovered by Logan Adams. The Panthers marched down the field and added 8 more to the score bringing the Panthers within 3 of the Redtops.
On the ensuing kickoff the Redtops fumbled the kick and the Panthers recovered setting up a storybook finish. Then Damion Kemmerlin found Preston Garner for a Geneva touchdown on fourth and goal to give the Panthers the lead!
With 4:20 left in the game the Panther defense needed one more stop to pull off the miracle win at Hugh-Owen Memorial Stadium. The Panther D not only got a stop, but put points on the board with a safety! Grant Pellot and Mikey Rupe brought down the Redtop QB in the end zone to seal the win for the Panthers!
