Wharton 27, Brandon 25

BRANDON — Wharton stopped a two-point conversion with 43 seconds left to preserve a 27-25 victory over Brandon on Friday.

Wharton (1-4) was in control throughout the game until the final couple of series for Brandon (1-4).

After leading 6-0 early, Brandon found itself behind 27-12 at the end of the third quarter.

Wharton, which rushed for 132 yards, focused on its running game and looked to be running down the clock.

Sophomore quarterback Alan Knipple provided a spark for the Eagles, connecting with Sean Watson for two touchdowns in the closing moments. Knipple finished with 196 yards and four touchdowns, three to Watson.

The Wildcats were led by Shane McEwen, who ran for 64 yards and a touchdown on 20 carries.
