Football Recap: Cobblers pull off last second win

Rapid City Central opened the football season Friday night in Sioux Falls against the Lincoln Patriots. But the game was suspended after the third quarter due to the rain.

The action finally resumed Saturday morning with the Cobblers leading 8-7.

Lincoln grabbed the lead with 6:49 left the fourth quarter as Preston Eisenbraun threw a touchdown to Tiegen Salava. However, the Patriots were unable to convert the 2-point conversion leaving the score 13-8 Lincoln.

The Cobblers marched the field on their final possession and Jetzon Olson finally plunged into the end zone as time expired.
