HSFB: Sharks stunned in OT at North Augusta

May River’s season came to a stunning — and stinging — end Friday, as the Sharks lost 20-13 in overtime at North Augusta in the first round of the SCHSL Class 4A playoffs. 

Ahmad Green’s touchdown run and a pair of Jonah Comfort field goals gave the Sharks a 13-0 lead through three quarters, but the Yellowjackets found a weakness in May River’s stingy defense and connected for two long passing touchdowns in the fourth quarter to pull even. 

The Sharks still had a chance to win it in regulation, stopping a fake punt near midfield and moving into position for a potential game-winning field goal, but Comfort’s kick from 52 yards came up just short, forcing overtime.

The Yellowjackets punched it in from the 10 to take their first lead, and the Sharks were unable to respond, as Green was picked off on a desperate pass to the end zone on the final play.
