It was a long shot at best but given the circumstances, it was one which Lakewood felt was best to take. With time, the scoreboard and real estate in Lugoff-Elgin’s favor, the visiting Gators trotted out freshman Thomas Burkott to attempt a 41-yard field goal with 4.7 seconds left and Lakewood trailing, 14-12. After an L-E time out, Burkott’s low kick was batted away by Reddek Kelley, sealing the deal on the two-point Demons’ victory which sent the large Homecoming crowd away happy.
