Heights mounts massive comeback to top South

By  | 

WICHITA, Kan. Heights was looking for its third straight City League victory against South in week 6, and the Falcons ended up getting all they could handle from the Titans in a wild contest at Carpenter Stadium.

The Falcons were their own worst enemy in the first half with costly turnovers. Down 12-10 late in the second quarter, Heights fumbled the ball and South recovered deep in Falcons territory. That turnover proved to be costly as Jashun Grant connected with Damion Wells for a 22 yard touchdown with just thirty seconds to go in the half. South would go into the break up 18-10.

Early in the third quarter Heights was looking to rally but they continued to be plagued by turnovers. Austin Mullen stripped the ball from the Falcons quarterback and Breydin Zimmerman recovered for the Titans. South was once again opportunistic, as it turned that into another touchdown when Grant scored on a two yard touchdown run. That gave the Titans their biggest lead of the night at 25-10.

But the Falcons never stopped scratching and clawing in this contest. Midway through the fourth quarter Heights started to get the offense moving. Armaad Hubbard had a big 38 yard scamper to help set up the Falcons in scoring position, and then he finished what he started when he plunged in from two yards out. That cut the lead to 25-17.

Heights continued its remarkable comeback in the fourth quarter by tying up the game at 25. The Falcons end up stunning South in overtime and escaped with a 32-25 victory.
