HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) -

PCS senior quarterback Luke Hudson said it was going to be “a gut check.”

Well, everyone in attendance at PCS and Madison-Ridgeland Academy had to check their guts after the Bobcats knocked the Patriots off in a triple overtime thriller.

PCS senior Rush Stewart batted down Madison-Ridgeland’s two-point conversion attempt in the third overtime to seal the Bobcats 45-44 win, the program’s first ever over the Patriots.

Presbyterian’s pursuit of perfection started off strong with an early touchdown run from senior running back Isaiah Woullard to tie things at seven.

In the second quarter, Hudson found PCS sophomore wide receiver Brandon Thornton for a 70-yard touchdown to extend the Bobcats’ lead to 14-7.

And on the second play of the second half, Woullard added another 70-yard PCS play with a touchdown scamper.

The Bobcats held that 21-10 lead for most of the third quarter before Madison-Ridgeland’s Lee Tanner slithered his way into the end zone.

Trailing 21-17 with under two minutes left in the game, Tanner scored again, this time receiving a long pass from Patriots quarterback Hunter Hulsey and giving Madison-Ridgeland its first lead since early in the first quarter.

Down 24-21 with 1:33 to go, PCS senior Harper Evans returned the ensuing kickoff inside Madison-Ridgeland’s 20-yard line. It set up junior O’Neil Walters 39-yard field goal that sent the Bobcats and Patriots into their first overtime tied at 24.

PCS head coach Joey Hawkins and company continue their record start (6-0) against Oak Forest Academy next week while Madison-Ridgeland Academy (3-3) travels to Magnolia Heights.
