The #1 ranked Corner Canyon football team trailed the defending 6A State Champs Lone Peak by 10 points with under 4 minutes to go. Suddenly, the offense found their rhythm and marched down the field, with Cole Hagen connecting with Talmadge Handley for a touchdown with .56 left in the game.
After a failed onside kick, the Chargers defense got a quick three and out, with Coach Kjar using his 3 timeouts to preserve time. The punt sailed in to the end zone, giving the Charger 80 yards to go in about 37 seconds. A couple of quick hitters and a successful wheel route completion for 40 yards to Handley, put the Chargers within striking distance. After an incomplete pass, the Chargers were faced with a decision to kick a field goal or go for the W. The coaching staff chose the latter, and Hagen found his brother Cody Hagen on the sideline, who was able to dive into the end zone for the go ahead score with 2 seconds on the clock.
It was a battle of 2 great teams, 2 teams who hopefully get to meet again in the 6A Championship and put on a great sequel to this thriller.
