FAIRDALE – North Oldham’s lead was slipping away late Friday night.
The Mustangs had led 26-6 at one point late in the third quarter, but back-to-back Fairdale touchdowns trimmed the North lead to 26-18 with six minutes to play.
The underdog Bulldogs were within a touchdown and their home crowd was into the KHSAA Class 4-A state quarterfinal game for the first time.
North needed to take back the momentum. Mustang senior Matt Clark accomplished that in one play.
