Pisgah Falls to Aquinas in State Semifinals

The Patriots, undefeated in the regular season, lost in the final seconds of the game 17-16 and ended the chance to advance to the state championship.

With only 19 seconds on the game clock Friday night Pisgah Christian saw its hopes to play in the state championship slip away.

Aquinas scored the game-cinching touchdown and extra point in the semifinal game denying the Johns Creek private school the opportunity for a trip to the Georgia Dome this year.

While the rain poured down Pisgah tried for a miracle but the final pass was incomplete, tipped by an Aquinas defender.

Quarterback Aaron Winchester rushed for almost 100 yards and threw for 65 yards and Browning Dunn (WR) had the first long play in the game when he ran for 75 yards on Pisgah's first offensive play.

But it wasn't enough when Aquinas' Justin Thomason's kicked the winning field goal to lift Aquinas to a final 17-16 victory.

The loss came after Mt. Pisgah won its first ever region championship when it defeated Mt. Zion (41-26) on Nov. 8. The Patriots were undefeated in the regular season.
