Burns 30, North Lincoln 27 (OT)
Quarterback Cam’Ron Sweezy waltzed into the endzone from 10 yards out untouched on the Bulldogs first play of the overtime period to give Burns a 30-27 third-round victory over the Knights Friday night in Pumpkin Center.
After Zach Benfield had kicked a 29-yard field goal with just eight seconds remaining in regulation to send the game to overtime at 24 all, Ian Fiore’s 20-yarder had given North Lincoln a brief 27-24 in the overtime period before Sweezy’s game-winning run.
