Bobcats force overtime, but lose to Lions, 13-6
An outstanding defensive performance was ruined when Basehor-Linwood allowed a touchdown in overtime and then failed to score on the following possession Friday night.
Lansing went up 6-0 near the end of the first quarter on a touchdown pass by J.T. Collins. Collins was flushed from the pocket, but was able to scramble until a receiver came open in the end zone. It was a common theme for the Lions quarterback, who spent most of the game running for his life, but still managed to make some plays. He was sacked three times, twice by Kevin Marshall and once by Scott Ogilvie, and he was pressured on a number of other plays.
The Bobcats' defense held BLHS in the game, but the offense didn't score until there were just four minutes remaining in regulation. Jacob Schierbaum blocked a punt and David Theodoroff recovered at the LHS 11-yard line. From there Chandler Schaake ran an end-around to the left down to the one, and Brandon Leppke scored on a quarterback sneak.
With the score 6-6 the teams went to overtime, where Lansing scored on its second play. The game ended when Leppke threw an interception on fourth-and-goal from the eight.
