South Dearborn 14, Lawrenceburg 13 overtime – Eagle 99.3 Game of the Week
South Dearborn stopped a 21 game losing streak in a stunning upset of their biggest rival to open the 2014 season. In a game that lasted more than four hours due to a 40 minute lightning delay, South Dearborn and Lawrenceburg went to overtime tied at 7-7. Lawrenceburg got the ball and scored first on a run by Zach Steuer, but the PAT was missed to leave it at 13-7. South Dearborn answered with a big 13-yard third-down conversion from quarterback Wyatt Schwing to wideout Blake Kirkey at the two yard line. Schwing would run it in on QB keeper a couple plays later, allowing kicker Tanner Anderson to kick the game-winning extra point and sealing the 14-13 victory.
Players of the game were South Dearborn QB Wyatt Schwing (1 pass TD, 1 run TD, 1 pass INT on offense, while also making two key interceptions on defense) and Lawrenceburg RB Zach Steuer (163 rush yards and scored a running touchdown).
South Dearborn’s last win had come on October 14, 2011 against Muncie South. The win was also the first career head coaching win for second-year Knights coach Chris Nobbe.
