The West Creek Coyotes held a 21-9 lead over the Portland Panthers going into the fourth quarter on Friday night, and all they needed to do was hang onto the football and keep their foes in front of them.
Instead, PHS outscored the visitors 22-6 in the final 15 minutes to steal a 31-27 victory from the Coyotes.
Each defense ruled the day for the first half, with each squad allowing only six points total going into the break. West Creek managed to break the slump in the third quarter by scoring 15 points to take a commanding lead. What would have been their second consecutive victory fell by the wayside due to a litany of errors.
