With just over three minutes left in the game Friday night at Gettysburg, Timber Lake trailed and was in danger of losing for the first time all season. But an incredible fourth quarter saw the Panthers, ranked #5 in the 9A poll, outshoot the Battlers 24-14 down the stretch and pull out a 48-44 win to move to 7-0 in 9-man football action. Cole Nafziger powered in a 1-yard touchdown with 3:02 on the clock to put Gettysburg on top for the second time in the game at 44-40, but Timber Lake’s potent offense had one more drive left in them. With 44 seconds on the clock, senior Tucker Kraft capped TLHS’s final scoring drive with a 6-yard TD run. It was Kraft’s second touchdown run of the game and he finished with 98 yards.
