A pass to McConnell netted another 1st down at the WL 33. The game went into the 4th period, but on 3rd and 15, Duckett threw an interception in the middle of the field.
Warrensburg had the ball at the 44. In a bad flashback to previous games, the Rams let a counter play go for a 56 yard TD on the first play from scrimmage. One man had a shot at him, but he slipped on the wet grass. Warrensburg tied the score 12-12 with 10:21 to play. The extra-point kick missed.
A short kickoff was taken by Zach Williams and he returned it to the Shelby 43. After 3 and out, Wyatt Fox punted the ball and it bounced to the Warrensburg 2.
Fox made a run sack to bring 3rd down at the 2. Finley stuffed a run and Warrensburg had to punt from the back of the end zone. The punt went out of bounds at the Cardinal 26.
Duckett got a 1st down run to the WL 15. Another Ram holding penalty pushed them back to the 24 and gave them 2nd and 19. Robinson ran for 10, but the Rams couldn't convert two passes and Warrensburg got the ball at their own 14.
A tipped pass was almost picked off by a diving Finley, then Warrensburg almost got a delay of game call and had to call a time-out. A half-back pass went incomplete, but a late flag was thrown for Ram interference for a Cardinal 1st down.
On the very next play, a pass was deflected by Finley and Tice Robinson caught it along the sideline and took it 20 yards for the score. The pick six gave Shelby an 18-12 lead with 2:55 left in the game.
On the 2-point try, Duckett flipped the ball on a reverse to Hendryx, who threw to the back of the end zone to Luke McConnell, 20-12.
