Special to The State Journal Published:

Cameron Flynn passed for a touchdown to tie the game and another to win it in overtime as Second Street School edged Bowling Middle of Owen County 22-14 in middle school football Tuesday night at Sower Football Field.

Second Street improved to 5-0 overall and 2-0 in conference play.

The Cubs and Rebels battled the entire game and it appeared the visitors had the upper hand after scoring a touchdown on a 40-yard run for a 14-8 advantage with 5:10 left in the game.

Second Street, starting on its own 42-yard line, worked the ball down the field with Flynn completing two passes to Jordan Morgan to get the ball to the Owen County 27.

Flynn found Morgan open over the middle and Morgan ran in for the score with 2:18 left. The two point try failed and the teams were tied 14-14 at the end of regulation.

Second Street won the coin toss and elected to go first from the 10-yard line in the overtime.
