MADISON — The Scott Skyhawks (7-0) got away with a close one in Madison against the Logan Wildcats (5-2) by a score of 28-20 on Friday. What seemed to be a sure victory for Scott in the beginning, quickly turned into a nail-biter in the 4th quarter. The Wildcats displayed an impressive comeback attempt, but fell short.

To start the game, Logan won the toss and elected to kick off to the Skyhawks. Scott started with a steady run game and was moving down the field and had a few 4th-and-short situations, but converted on both and got into the redzone. Scott’s running back Preston Cooper punched it in from 3-yards out to put the Skyhawks ahead with 5 minutes left in the first quarter. The Wildcats now were in possession, but not for long due to an interception on the Wildcat’s 2nd offensive play from Scott’s senior Jayden Sharps. Once Scott got back on offense, it was once again Preston Cooper marching down the field, eventually getting into the endzone again from 1-yard out, putting the Skyhawks up by two scores to end the first quarter.
