Whether it was the 20 MPH winds or the epic final quarter, it’s safe to say there was little to keep fans sitting still a Friday’s football clash between Novi and South Lyon came to an end.

With South Lyon having climbed back from a 10-point deficit to knot it up 20-20, Novi took to the field for one last drive near midfield with 35 seconds left looking to avoid overtime.

Having used all their timeouts, Bageris was forced to spike the ball following a pair of 13-yard quick strikes to Emanuel Jackson and Ryan Welch.

After a quick quarterback scamper to get out of bounds at the 20, Bageris caught wide receiver Anthony D’Annibale in stride off a post-pattern for the game-winning touchdown with no time left and give the Wildcats a dramatic 26-20 victory on the road.
