Cory Hanger allowed the Montgomery County Wildcats an entire 13 seconds to bask in their only lead of the night.
Montgomery County profited from a South Callaway turnover on the game's opening possession in Wednesday night's Class 2, District 6 semifinal matchup against the state-ranked Bulldogs. The Wildcats grabbed a 7-0 lead on a 1-yard touchdown run by senior running back Jackson Bishop on fourth down with 3 minutes, 22 seconds left in the first quarter.
On the ensuing kickoff, Hanger - the Bulldogs' dynamic junior tailback - scooped the ball out of the muck in the middle of the field, darted through an opening and raced 85 yards for a touchdown. Junior kicker Caleb Sconce added the extra point to tie the game at the 3:09 mark.
Hanger then proceeded to harass Montgomery County with a dizzying array of moves, breaking out for four more touchdowns - three coming on runs - as second-seeded South Callaway pulled away in a dominating second half for a 42-7 romp over the third-seeded Wildcats.
