The Harrison Goblins for the second week in a row score a touchdown in the games final minute to advance in the 5A Football Playoffs.

After breaking a tie with a late touchdown last week against Camden-Fairview, Goblin Quarterback Cole Keylon throws an 11 yard touchdown pass to Cy Madden just a couple plays after having a scoring pass called back on a penalty, then the same two connected on a two point conversion which helped Harrison outlast White Hall 38-35.

The Goblins held a nine-point halftime lead only to see the Bulldogs rally to pull ahead by five points in the fourth quarter. White Hall had a chance to put the game away but the Harrison Defense forced a three and out and got the ball back setting up the final drive of the game.

Keylon ends up passing for 146 yards and a pair of touchdowns and also scored one on the ground, part of his 117 yard rushing night.

The Goblins will host Little Rock Christian in the 5A Semi-finals next Friday night. LAC defeated Hot Springs Lakeside 52-14 in their quarterfinal match-up.
