Tigers take down A-P in 2OT
PARKERSBURG – Kolten Rewoldt connected with Kevin Rewoldt for touchdowns in both overtimes, and Michael Halsey’s extra-point kick in the second extra session proved to be the deciding point as South Hardin defeated Aplington-Parkersburg 36-35 in Friday’s Class 2A District 3, double-overtime football tilt.
Aplington-Parkersburg (2-3, 1-2) rallied from a 21-7 halftime deficit with 14 unanswered points in the third period alone. The Falcons also had the ball on the South Hardin 4-yard-line with one untimed down at the end of regulation, but a falst start penalty ended the quarter.

The same Tiger pair hooked up on the first possession of double overtime, and Halsey’s extra-point kick made it 36-29. The Falcons (2-3, 1-2) scored on their drive but came up empty on a two-point attempt.
Ryland Duchane and Logan Spindler scored South Hardin touchdown runs in regulation, and Ty Cook hauled in a 79-yard TD pass as well.
