Prep football: Late drive propels Olympus to win over Woods Cross
First Published Oct 17 2012 10:44 pm • Last Updated Feb 07 2013 11:31 pm

The Olympus offense stalled for the entire second half, and Woods Cross seemed to have all the momentum. Olympus quarterback Corbin Anderson didn’t care. The senior quietly trotted out onto the field with about a minute and a half left, engineered a perfect two-minute drill and led the Titans on a 69-yard game-winning touchdown drive to knock off the Wildcats, 21-14.

"I just knew we needed to step it up and move down the field, and it all came together," Anderson said.

Several quarterback keepers by Anderson moved the ball from Olympus territory down to the Woods Cross 30-yard line.

The Titans appeared content to run down the clock to set up a field-goal try, but they decided to take one last shot down the field.

With the clocking rapidly winding low, Anderson lobbed the ball down the left sideline, where receiver junior Connor Haller was jockeying for position. Haller leapt, hauled it in and landed with his toes just inches from the sideline to give Olympus a first down at the 8-yard line with 19 seconds left.

"That was a big play," Olympus coach Aaron Whitehead said. "It was actually designed to go to the other side of the field, but they took that away, and he just put up a great ball. Corbin has been playing great for us the last few games."

Two plays later, junior running back Coleman Meier took an Anderson handoff from the 3-yard line and extended the ball just over the goal line to score the winning touchdown with five seconds left on the clock.

The win was Olympus’ sixth in seven games after the Titans lost their first three contests.
