The Owls left Exit 11 for their first road contest of the upcoming three game stretch last Friday, with a lengthy bus ride to Johnson City, TN to face off against the Hilltoppers of Science Hill. After a strong start from their defense, the Owls answered with a 9 play scoring drive capped off with a Sincere Quinn touchdown. The teams would trade blows for next 24 minutes to head into halftime tied at 14. The third quarter proved to be much of the same, lengthy drives for both squads. The Hilltoppers scored their final touchdown with about 3 minutes remaining, which gave Kyrell Sanford and the Owls offense a chance to tie it up. After a few well time runs and completions, the senior quarterback was able to score off of a left side scamper. The Owls then elected to go for a two point conversion and the Hilltoppers were ready for it, tackling Sanford on the quarterback keeper. Science Hill would run the clock out after recovering the onside kick and seal the win 35-34.
