Powder Valley rallies to win

MARCOLA — Powder Valley football coach Skye Flanagan was “sky high” after his team defeated Mohawk, 38-32, Friday night.

With four minutes remaining in the game the Badgers scored on a 22-yard run. Mohawk then marched down the field and were poised to score. Trenton Dixon then intercepted a pass with a minute remaining, ending any Indian last-minute heroics.

The Badgers rallied from behind to beat the defending state champions. At halftime Powder Valley trailed 24-14.

The Badgers had some key injuries during the first half, but managed to outscore the Indians 24-8 in the second half.

“I’m very proud of our guys,” Flanagan said. “We did not deserve a win in the first half, but the second half we sure did.”
