BRIDGER – Denton-Geyser-Stanford-Geraldine put together furious comeback Friday night to beat Bridger 58-51 in overtime.
DGSG was down 23-0 after the first quarter and was at one point trailing 45-13 but pulled within 45-37 with three minutes left after Axel Becker caught a touchdown pass. Prior to that, Tyce Smith heaved a Hail Mary to Kameryn Myllymaki on fourth down to make the score 45-31.
Bridger seemingly put the game away on a Gage Goltz kickoff return for a touchdown after Becker’s TD reception, but DGSG was able to tie the game 51-51 and force overtime, where a defensive stand on fourth down was the deciding play.
Bridger had built its lead to 37-13 at halftime and then 45-13 in the third when Goltz scored what at that point was his fifth touchdown from 9 yards. But the Scouts couldn’t hold on, as Smith found the end zone from 16 yards and then threw a 35-yard pass to Myllymaki to force OT.
In overtime, a 1-yard run by Brody Ridgeway put DGSG on top. DGSG then stopped Bridger on defense to end the game.
