Holliday Edges Windthorst 35-28 in Kickoff Classic

The 2011 Kickoff Classic lived up to its name Thursday night in Windthorst, as the Holliday Eagles made a goal-line stand to hold off the #3 Windthorst Trojans 35-28 in the season opener for both.

Holliday led most of the way, never trailing and leading 35-21 in the fourth quarter, but the Trojans never went away.

They cut the lead to one touchdown late, then forced a Holliday 3-and-out to give themselves a shot.

They drove down the field, getting first and goal with under a minute left, but after three straight plays, it was 4th and goal from the 1-yard line with just three seconds to play.

Braydon Ingram, who missed last season's playoff run with an injury, got the ball, but was stopped just short of the goal-line to end the game.

The Trojans (0-1) will stay home next week against the Old High JV Rowdies, while Holliday (1-0) will play their home opener against Breckenridge.
