WHITE CITY —   Ryan True knocked down a two-point conversion pass to secure a 45-44 victory for Southern Coffey County High’s Titans Thursday night.
Thirty-one points were scored in the fourth quarter of the season finale between the Titans and host White City High’s Huskies. Both treams were looking for a win in Kansas Eight-Man Division I, District 3 play.
True’s defensive play came after White City’s Jason Nittler threw his fifth touchdown pass of the game. Brandon Paige caught the scoring strike with 46 seconds left in the game.
“I liked the way we played at times in the game. We still need to learn how to put a team away,” said John Chanley, Titan head coach, as his team finished the 2010 season at 3-6.
“It got a little crazy at the end but we got all our kids in the game. That was a goal for us tonight.”
The Titans scored first on a 50-yard run by Travis Bryan. Bryan had a 20-yard run in the second period.
Colin Kraft threw a 35-yard touchdown pass to Aaron Ludolph with 1:07  left in the first half.  He had flipped two-point conversion passes to Wes Callahan and True earlier.
Dylan Wonser had a two-point conversion run for SCCH. The Titans held a 24-8 halftime lead.
White City outscored Southern Coffey County 18-8 in the third quarter. The Titans’ touchdown was a 65-yard pass play from Kraft to Bryan with Wonser tacking on the two-point run.
The Titans held on to a 32-26 lead heading into the fourth quarter. Kraft, who was 8 of 17 for 179 yards, found Bryan on a 21-yard touchdown pass at the 7:10 mark.
That was answered by a touchdown pass by Nittler. The Titans came right back with the Kraft to Ludolph connection for a score at the 1:59 mark. Bryan kicked the extra point.
Nittler hooked up with Trent Blyth for the third time in the game for a touchdown 18 seconds later. Then came the final scoring drive by the Huskies and True’s deflection.
White City got an 11-yard touchdown run from Nittler in the first quarter and two-point conversion run. In the third quarter he threw two touchdown passes.
Also in the third quarter, Aaron Tate returned a Titan fumble 15 yards for a touchdown.
Bryan rushed for 126 yards on 14 carries for the Titans. Wonsor had 46 yards on nine carries.
Bryan also made three catches for 96 yards. Ludolph caught three passes for 87 yards.
“We  had worked to have a better record this season. It just didn’t work out.” Chanley said. “We just have to be able to keep a team down when we have them down.”
Southern Coffey County went 1-5 in Lyon County League play.
Bryan led the Southern Coffey County defense with 17 tackles.
Ludolph posted 12 tackles and recovered a fumble. Wonsor, True and Callahan each had 11 tackles.
