PJ Ziegler braved the elements and watched a nail biter as the Midview Middies beat the Avon Eagles 42-36 in overtime. It looked as though the Eagles would get the win as they scored with just 26 seconds left in the game, but the Middies came back. Midview quarterback Dustin Crum found Dimitri Redwood on a 40-yard touchdown pass with a second to play. The extra point attempt was missed because of a high snap which led to overtime.
The Middies advance to their first regional final while the Eagles miss the final for just the second time in six playoff appearances.
Midview will play Nordonia in the Region 4 final next week.
