It took every bit of the game’s 48-minutes, but the Las Lomas Knights defeated the Vanden Vikings 21-20 Friday night in Fairfield. The winning connection came between Everett Johnson and Zach Patterson, with Johnson hitting Patterson in stride on a 45-yard strike to tie the score 20-20 with 1.7-seconds remaining in the game. Hayden Grant then connected on his third extra-point of the game, despite a strong wind in his face, to give Las Lomas the victory. The Knights and Vikings battled hard, with both teams playing stingy defense and having to overcome miscues and ill-timed penalties. Down 14-0, the Knights first touchdown came in the second quarter when Isaiah Newell scored from 18-yards out on a terrific run. Soon after, Sammy Von Felden intercepted a Viking’s pass attempt and returned it for a touchdown to tie the score at halftime. The third quarter ended 14-14 and then in the fourth quarter Vanden took over on downs at the Las Lomas 25-yard line and promptly went ahead on a touchdown run, a lead that lasted until the final seconds of the game.
