Huge turn of events in the final seconds of the first half.

Here’s what happened:

Bellevue kicks a field goal with 18 seconds left and takes a 10-7 lead. The Wolverines recover an onside kick. Bellevue running back Peter Nguyen fumbles the ball and defensive end James Palmer goes 52 yards for a touchdown.

Halftime score: O’Dea 14, Bellevue 10.

TNT staff person Doug Drowley says Bellevue had 41 yards of total offense until their final drive, which netted it 44 yards and resulted in the field goal. Wolverines coach Butch Goncharoff made an interesting call to go for a 28-yard field goal facing first-and-10 with 21 seconds left in the half. Bellevue did not have any timeouts left and has not attempted a pass yet.

O’Dea has 151 yards of total offense: 117 rushing and 34 passing.
