Football: Warhawks Thrill with Late Touchdown for Win

Madison defeats South Lakes 38-35

The Madison Warhawks beat the South Lakes Seahawks by a score of 38-35 in a fiercely contested Liberty District game last Friday night at Seahawk Stadium. Mitchell Goddard, filling in at quarterback for the injured Dan Powers, led the Warhawks on a thrilling 67-yard touchdown drive in the final two minutes for the winning points. The win raised Madison's overall record to 6-1 and 4-0 in the district. 

Jacob Hall provided much of the offense for the Warhawks, rushing for 168 yards and three touchdowns, catching two passes for 19 yards and returning three kicks for 76 yards. Goddard was excellent at quarterback for the Warhawks completing 13 of 21 passes for 183 yards and one touchdown. In addition, Goddard rushed for 18 yards on four carries, including a 1-yard touchdown dive with 20 seconds left in the game. 

Madison rushed to an early 13-0 lead behind two Hall touchdowns. On the other side of the ball, the Warhawks defense seemed in complete control forcing the high-powered Seahawk offense into four straight three-and-outs that included interceptions by Nick Hoy and Goddard. However, South Lakes came roaring back with an 88-yard touchdown pass and a 40-yard touchdown run to take a 14-13 lead. Nick Dorka converted a 31-yard field goal to give Madison a 16-14 halftime lead. 

The Seahawks put together two long touchdown drives in the third quarter and started to look unstoppable on offense. Madison responded with a 20-yard touchdown pass from Goddard to Tom House. House, who finished the game with five catches for 69 yards, made a leaping grab deep in the right corner of the end zone. After three quarters, the Seahawks led 28-23.  

Madison regained the lead in the fourth quarter on Hall’s third rushing touchdown of the game, a 25-yard run. The two-point conversion gave Madison the lead at 31-28. Once again, South Lakes responded with a 12-play drive to retake the lead at 35-31 with two minutes remaining in the game. That set the scene for Goddard, who calmly led the Warhawk offense down the field on nine plays to set up his winning 1-yard dive with seconds left in the game.  Jordan Durham intercepted the final Seahawks pass to seal the victory for Madison.

The Warhawks defense had three interceptions, three sacks and seven tackles for losses. Madison's will host Fairfax at 7:30 p.m. Friday.
