The wildest football game of the week came not in the NFL, but in a high school game.
With three seconds remaining, the Lima Senior High School Spartans kicked off to the St. Francis de Sales Knights, leading 25-24.
St. Francis de Sales got the ball and conjured up a wild series of five laterals to avoid a game-ending tackle, eventually getting the ball into the hands of one speedster.
The Knights player sprinted down the sideline, evading several defenders, and made a dash for the end zone with only Lima High’s kicker left.
As the two raced for the end zone, with time expired, the kicker, Cole Mericle, leaped and made a game-saving tackle at the one-yard line to end the game.
