Sweet Home's first of a se- ries of big plays on the night came midway through the second half as Spencer Knight broke through sev- eral would-be tacklers on his way to a 27-yard score, stuffing the ball behind the pylon as he went down under a tackler just outside the cor- ner of the end zone. "I came around on a sweep and I saw that there was nothing there," Knight said: "I saw the line- backers over-pursue and then I saw all our linemen doing a perfect job of blocking, so I headed around. I didn't mean for it to be so dramatic but it ended up just being way dra- matic. I saw the one guy and I just stuck the ball out and hoped I'd hit the pylon." Things were up and down for the Huskies. On their next posses- sion Paulus, who carried the ball 37 times for 28.9 yards - most with Lions hanging all over him- for the game, served as Workhorse on a seven-carry, length:of-the-field drive to the 6-yard line, where he fumbled with 2:49 left in the half. Hitner drove Cottage Grove back the other way and completed his second touchdown of the game to give the Lions a 28-21 lead with six seconds left, a lead they took into halftime. "I could have subbed Wade out and got Spencer in there, but I wanted Wade to finish that series out," Nichol said. "He either was tired or he didn't have a good grip on the ball. I told him, 'Next time you look over at me and say "I got this," or I'm subbing you out.'" He said communication prob- lems tripped the team up a few times throughout the game, as Homer called different plays than Nichol wanted. "That's what we're going to work on this week," Nichol said.
