Seven minutes into the third quarter, Boerne completed another rushing touchdown and successful PAT, tying the game at 21.
With four minutes left in the third quarter, Boerne delivered yet another rushing touchdown, this time for 10 yards and another successful extra point.
Boerne led 28-21 after three quarters.
With nine minutes to go in the fourth quarter, G-P’s Blake Butters intercepted a Boerne pass, leading to a first down on the Greyhounds’ 46-yard line. G-P then delivered a rushing touchdown and successful PAT, tying the game yet again, 28-28.
With less than six minutes left in the final quarter, the Greyhounds delivered their final touchdown and made good on the extra point.
