Late TD lifts Shamokin past Mifflinburg

COAL TOWNSHIP — Zach Tillett caught a 19-yard TD pass from Tucker Yost with three minutes left in the fourth quarter to give Shamokin its second win of the season, a 21-20 decision over Mifflinburg, in Heartland Athletic Conference Division I action at Kemp Memorial Stadium.

Shamokin improves to 2-5 overall, 2-3 HAC-I. Mifflinburg drops to 2-5, 1-5.

The Indians took an early 7-0 lead when Yost hit Sean McLaughlin with a 74-yard scoring strike, before the Wildcats looked to control the game with three consecutive touchdowns.

Tanner Bingaman and Dan Danowsky each had one-yard TD runs before Devin Hendrix hit Kyle Failor with a 16-yard TD pass to give Mifflinburg a 20-7 lead with 5:50 left in the third quarter.

Shamokin rallied with an 11-yard TD run by Preston Burns before Tillett’s fourth--quarter score.

The Wildcats had a chance to win the game, driving deep into Shamokin territory, before a dropped pass in the end zone ended the threat.

Failor finished the game with 125 yards on the ground for Mifflinburg, while Yost had 169 yards through the air for Shamokin.
