But after an apparent onside kick attempt, Bethany got the ball on its own 46 before running a hook-and-ladder play for 27 yards.

After two stalled runs and a sack, Duke heaved the ball downfield to Stout, and the rest was history.

“I'm speechless,” Duke said. “I had a lot of faith in my team. We can fight it out until the very end, and that's what we did tonight.”

Duke finished 12-of-18 for 260 yards and two touchdowns along with 89 rushing yards and a score.

Despite battling a leg injury, Bledsoe put up 115 rushing yards, 125 passing yards and three total touchdowns.

“3A-2 is a tough district,” Perkins-Tryon coach Lloyd Wertman said. “We're not going to feel sorry for ourselves. We've got to fight back, and we will with this bunch.”

Next Friday, Perkins-Tryon hits the road to face Prague, while Bethany hosts Seminole.
