Quick change, then quicker change

Late in the game, driving for a clinching score, Maryville throws to the end zone. Methodist's Roy Mewborn intercepts Tim Conner's pass and decided to run it out. Maryville's Brad Eich dislodged the ball and the Scots' Zane Winders goes in for the score. And they needed the touchdown, too, because Maryville had to hold on to win 26-24.
