What a game!
The South Milwaukee football team scored a 43-41 Homecoming victory in overtime over Whitnall Friday.
A touchdown pass from Adam Finn to Everett Lentz and a two-point conversion run by Blake Maldonado was the difference. A goal-line stand turned back a two-point conversion attempt by Whitnall to seal it.
Finn finished with three touchdown passes and two TD runs on the night. Lentz also had a big game, with two TD catches. Roy Scott also caught a touchdown.
A key sequence came at the end of the the first half, as Maldonado followed an interception return for a score by Whitnall with an 85-yard kickoff return for a touchdown.
The Rockets (2-5) close the season with games at Grafton on Oct. 7 and at home against Wisconsin Lutheran on Oct. 14. See the full schedule here.
