HARRISBURG, S.D. (KELO) — Friday night’s KELOLAND.com Game of the Week was an instant thriller as #1 Harrisburg earned a narrow 29-23, double overtime win over #5 Washington.

The game was tied at ten after three quarters, but Harrisburg grabbed the lead on a seven yard touchdown run by Jacob Knuth.

From there, the score stayed 17-10 until the final play of the game.

Max Thomson connected with Josh Piper for a two yard touchdown as time expired. The point after attempt was good and the Warriors sent the game to overtime!

Elijah Taniah struck first in overtime with a ten yard touchdown run. However, the point after attempt was no good… Washington still up 23-17.

It didn’t take Harrisburg too long to answer as Jacob Knuth connected with Cade Larson for the game tying touchdown. However, the point after attempt was no good as well… sending the game to double overtime!

Harrisburg got possession first and it didn’t take long to score.

Gavin Ross need just two carries, a seven and a three yard run led to a touchdown. The PAT was no good again, but the Tigers took a 29-23 lead.

That meant that a Washington touchdown and PAT would earn a Washington win. Anything less than six would result in a Tiger victory.

Harrisburg would face fourth and goal when Thomson’s pass was intercepted by Carter Bahrenfuss in the endzone to seal the 29-23, double overtime win.
