Tyler Worrall scored all five of Knoxville touchdowns including the game winner in the third overtime to help the Panthers to a 35-to-34 win over P-C-M in triple overtime last night. For the first 35 minutes and 46 seconds fans were wondering if anyone was going to score as both team’s defenses dominated the first half of play. Worrall would finally dent the scoreboard with a minute and 14 seconds left in the third quarter from seven yards out to give Knoxville the lead. Worrall would get four more touchdown runs of four…four…three, and four to go with his 119 yards rushing. Austin Houser added the final points on the extra point after P-C-M two point conversion attempt was no good in the third extra session. Knoxville Defensive Coordinator Justin Mikels said the team really grew up as a team. Hutch Burns was one of the big starts for P-C-M running for 74 yards and two scores he also caught a 13 yard pass for a touchdown. Drew Lyons scored on a nine yard pass in the fourth quarter and quartback Josh Fosenberg also scored. Knoxville is 1-0 and will host Wayne next week, while P-C-M is 0-1 and hits the road to Pella Christian next Friday.
