A controversial two-point conversion went Lakeside Lutheran’s way in overtime Friday night, giving the Warriors a 32-31 victory over Beloit Turner in Capitol Conference football action.
The Trojans (2-2 overall, 0-2 Capitol) dodged disaster at the end of regulation when Lakeside missed a potential game-winning field-goal attempt in the waning seconds.
The Warriors had tied the game with a field goal with 1 minute, 47 seconds left in overtime.
Junior Conner Hughes ran for a 1-yard touchdown and kicked the extra point to give Turner a 31-24 lead in the first possession of overtime.
Lakeside scored two plays later and elected to decide the game with a two-point conversion try. After a bad snap was fetched by a running back and pitched to the quarterback, a two-point conversion throw was complete.
Turner argued the Lakeside running back was down on the play, but officials allowed the play.
Hughes also ran for a go-ahead score midway through the fourth quarter to give Turner a 24-21 lead and a 3-yard score in the first quarter.
