Badgers Lose 50 to 51

The high scoring game was tied at 44-44 at the end of regular time and went into overtime. There La Vernia scored a TD and converted to make it 51-44 their favor. Lampasas got the ball and scored a TD to make it 51-50. Here the extra point kick would have tied the game again and put it in a second overtime period but, as broadcaster Darrell Brooks put it, “We found out that (Badger Coach) Troy Rogers has the spirit of a gambler.” He chose to go for a two point attempt at the goal line, attempting a throw-back pass to Owen Davis which the Bear defense knocked away.
