The Heritage Patriots earned their third win of the season Friday night on the road, defeating Cedar Shoals 17-14 in overtime for their second region win of the year.

Heritage carried a 7-0 lead into the half before Cedar Shoals knotted the score up at 14-14 with 3:05 left in the game.

Austin Kulp clinched the overtime victory with a field goal on the Patriots' lone possession in extra time, handing Heritage its third win of the season.
The loss to the Patriots (3-1, 2-0) drops the Jaguars to 0-4 on the season.

Heritage scored the only points in the first half when quarterback Anthony Stanley broke free from the Jaguars' defense for a 51-yard touchdown run. After the ensuing extra point, Stanley's touchdown run gave the Patriots a 7-0 first half lead.

Neither team scored again in the first period, but the Jaguars were able to tie the contest at 7-7 in the third quarter before the Patriots' final score.

With the game knotted up, Stanley broke away for his second score of the night, this time using his feet for a 70-yard rushing touchdown to put Heritage ahead 14-7.

The Jaguars answered, however, late in the fourth quarter, scoring on a 6-yard touchdown run from running back Adrian Washington with just over three minutes left in the game.

The teams headed into overtime where the Jaguars had the first opportunity to score, but Cedar Shoals missed a 33-yard field goal attempt, giving Kulp a chance to steal the game.
