With three minutes left to go in the game, the Hinton Blackhawks were down and had a lot of field between them and the touchdown they needed.
West Lyon had just scored at the Inwood field, leading Hinton 10-7, and time was running out.
They brought the ball more than 70 yards down the field and scored with 21 seconds left on the clock.
The final score: 14-10.
Blackhawk quarterback, senior Morgan Wenzel, ran the 16 yards to bring the touchdown in.
"We were trying to get the ball centered in the field, trying to get a field goal in the worst case scenario, and we called a running play," Held said. "I thought it was just a first down, but he ran it in. That touchdown was monstrous."
Monday's game started out as nearly a defensive stalemate between the Wildcats (9-2) and Hinton (8-3).
"It was a lot of defense, a lot of hard hitting, the two offenses trying to figure out what the other team's defense was doing," Held said. "We'd changed some things since we saw them last, and they did, too. We were hunting and pecking, finding out what was going to work."
It took the Blackhawks most of the first half to figure that out, he said.
Defensively, Hinton made two crucial stops in the first half.
Once West Lyon brought the ball to within a yard of the end zone but Hinton held the line. The Wildcats couldn't get the first down, and Hinton took the ball over at the 1 yard line.
Later, West Lyon drove to the 8 yard line, but the Blackhawks held them there.
With 6:54 left in the second quarter, the Wildcats kicked a 27-yard field goal to make the score 3-0, where it stayed at halftime.
"We came out the second half and decided we'd try to run the ball," Held said. "Not a lot of teams do that against West Lyon."
Hinton's first touchdown drive was mostly on the ground with a few passes, the coach said.
With 1:58 left in the third quarter, Dalton Becker caught a 3-yard touchdown pass from Wenzel.
The extra point kick by Matthies Gross-Holtick was good, making the score 7-3.
The 71-yard Blackhawk touchdown drive had taken 15 plays, Hinton coach Steve Diediker said.
