Prep football: Irish ‘find a way’ for late win

BY RAY MARTIN Published: November 30, 2008

That conversion tied the game at 21. But Grove scored with 1:15 remaining to go back on top.

After Randolph’s final scoring run, Young said the players didn’t want to settle for an extra point and try to win the game in overtime, especially after the Irish missed an extra point in the third quarter.

"We knew we had some plays that we could convert pretty easy,” said Randolph, who leaped into the end zone on a run/pass option play to secure the win. "We never thought we were out of it. We had come from behind so many times this season.”

Four times, to be exact. The Irish also won games against Millwood, Douglass and Sallisaw after trailing in the second half.

"I think that probably helped us ultimately,” Young said. "Having a state championship team that knows they can win tough games is helpful. These kids just know how to find a way.”
