— With two seconds remaining, Harrah kicker Dak Stevens missed a 24-yard field goal, handing the McLoud Redskins their sixth victory, 29-28 on Friday.

Harrah surrendered the lead with 1:46 remaining, however, the Panthers' offense drove 63 yards for a field goal attempt from McLoud's 19-yard line. Stevens nailed the 29-yarder, but before the snap, McLoud committed an encroachment penalty, forcing Harrah to re-kick and miss from 24 yards out with time expiring.

Harrah escaped the first half with a 14-10 lead and eventually held a 28-10 advantage after Stevens recovered a Joseph Wood fumble and returned it 35 yards for a touchdown.

But with 7:13 remaining in the third quarter, Wood and the Redskins began their comeback.

McLoud answered the fumble recovery with a 68-yard drive capped by a five-yard touchdown strike to Ryan Rogers. Wood completed five of six passes on the drive and rushed for 24 yards. Harrah stopped Wood one yard short on the two-point conversion, but McLoud cut the lead to 28-16.

After forcing Harrah into the only three-and-out of the game, the Redskins drove and scored on the first play of the fourth quarter. Wood capped the 65-yard drive with an eight-yard touchdown run. McLoud's signal-caller connected on three straight passes for 36 yards before the score, and after the PAT, McLoud cut Harrah's lead to 28-23.
