It was a wild shootout at the Birdville Athletic Complex where Richland needed a win to clinch a playoff spot.
We pick it up 3rd quarter and it's 37-34 Richland when Cole Benson hits Seth Wells for the 62 yard touchdown. That would be Benson's 6th of 7 touchdown passes on the night!
Later in the 4th, the Kangaroos' quarterback Ken Seals throws his 4th touchdown pass on the night - this time to Seth Robertson to cut the lead to 3, 58-55.
Weatherford would later take the lead on this Dez Forrest 22 yard run with 5 minutes to go to make it 62-58!
Benson would be sidelined with an injury late in the 4th quarter and Rebel backup quarterback Jake Kennedy would come in. Down 4 - with 2 minutes to go, and facing 4th and 7, Kennedy would connect with Wells on this 10 yard touchdown pass.
The Roos would get the ball back, drive the field. And attempt this game tying field goal. The Rebels Robert Turner blocks the kick and time would expire and the celebration is on. Richland is headed to the playoffs after starting the season 1-5, an instant classic 65-62 win.
