Polk County West 21-20 over East Grand Forks (2 OT)

For the first time in history, Polk County West played East Grand Forks on the football field, in a game that became a reality in less than 24 hours.  It was the first time a Sacred Heart represented team played against East Grand Forks Senior High since 1972.  It took double overtime, but the Thunder, who hadn’t played in nearly a full month, would walk off winners.  Leading 7-0 at halftime, behind a pick six from Sam Gapp, the Thunder added to their lead with a Gapp rushing touchdown and would lead 14-0 after three quarters.  The Greenwave would score 14 unanswered points on a Sam Votava pass and then a run  and we would go into overtime.  The Greenwave missed a field goal in the first overtime, and would score in the second overtime, only to miss their extra point.  The Thunder answered with another Gapp touchdown, and just like he did on October 23rd in their last game, Cullen Rohrich kicked an extra point to walk off winners in the final game before the pause on sports in Minnesota.
