Saints edge Owls on 8th Grade Night

September 2, 2008

Ethan Roller tossed a four-yard touchdown pass to Stephen Howell with 57.7 seconds remaining in regulation, Tuesday night, as the DeKalb Saints rallied past the Smith County Owls, 16-14, in their final home game of the regular season. The team's eighth grade members were honored in a pre-game ceremony at VanHooser Stadium.

After tossing the game-tying score, Roller squeezed into the end zone on a busted two-point conversion play to give the Saints the lead. The DMS defense rose to the occasion on the ensuing Smith County drive, and ensured victory by stopping the drive after the Owls lost seven yards in four plays.

DeKalb took the first lead of the game, as they capped off their first drive with an eight-yard touchdown pass from Roller to Sonny Young. Roller then found Will Molander on the two-point conversion, which gave the Saints an 8-0 lead with 26.6 seconds remaining in the opening quarter.
