Oh, so close: In a long game with five overtimes, Mustangs come up short

MARBLE FALLS — The Marble Falls High School football team fought, clawed and pushed Boerne Champion to the limit Friday in a game that 
took five overtimes to decide a winner.

But in the end, Champion (2-2) used a roughing-the-kicker penalty to extend its final drive, which ended on a 10-yard run by junior quarterback Kyle Poeske for the 35-29 victory.

The Mustangs’ (3-1) last drive ended on an interception in the end zone after they were flagged for a false start and a delay of game.

Still, head coach Cord Woerner said he couldn’t fault his players’ efforts.

"My heart breaks for these kids," he said. "We did a lot of things to take the ball game away from them. We did a lot of things to give it back."
