Thomas More Falls at Georgetown in Final Moments

The Thomas More football team lost a heartbreaker at Georgetown on Saturday.

The Tigers' Isaiah Cobb scored a touchdown on a one-yard run, putting Georgetown on top of the Saints 20-19, with just sixteen seconds to play at Toyota Stadium.

Thomas More had led for much of the game after Georgetown scored first on another Cobb touchdown in the first quarter.

In the second quarter, senior quarterback Justin Post connected on a 29-yard touchdown pass to senior wide receiver Johnny McNally to tie up the game. Later in the second, junior running back Justin Durham scored on a 48-yard touchdown run to put Thomas More up 13-7.

The Saints took a 16-7 lead to halftime after sophomore kicker Alexander Haley scored a 29-yard field goal as time expired in the first half.

In the third quarter, Georgetown struck first when quarterback Zach Dampier connected on a 34-yard touchdown pass to Jake Johnson, and following the extra point, the Saints led the Tigers, 16-14.

Haley pushed the Saints' lead with a fourth quarter field goal from 23 yards away. But Thomas More's 19-14 lead was erased by the late Cobb touchdown.

With the loss, Thomas More falls to 3-5 on the season and 1-3 in the Mid-South Conference Bluegrass Division.

The Saints travel to Bethel in Bethel, Tennessee next Saturday.
