Dundee defense holds firm in final minute, in win over Huron (Story)

Dundee comes back in the second half vs. Ann Arbor Huron and hangs on at the end for the victory. Ann Arbor Huron jumped out to an early 10-0 lead led by Senior QB Assane Ka. Ka had a breakout game in the surprise start and hooked up early with Junior Athlete Tyree Hill for a 10 yard touchdown strike, the first of two TD receptions by Hill. Senior Ricardo Mojica hit a 30 yard field goal for the Rats final points of the half after the Dundee defense held firm.

Dundee ceased momentum with the defense getting a safety late in the half and then with Junior QB Matt Vann scrambling to avoid a sack in the following drive. He connected with Senior TE Carter Scott for a 30 yard gain which set up a late TD in the half to make it a 10-8 game.

In the second half Dundee stuck with their disciplined run game to control the clock and limit possessions for Huron. Dundee led 21-10 late in the game after hitting a FG before Junior Aaron Winston returned a kickoff for the Rats 70 yards to the Dundee 15 yard line (it was partially offset by a penalty). This set up the second scoring connection of Ka to Hill to make the game 21-16. The Huron defense was able to hold Dundee on the next possession to give the Rats one last chance to win the game. Aaron Winston scampered 14 yards to the Dundee 2 yard line with 30 seconds left on the clock and no time outs. Huron was able to get off two plays but the Dundee defense answered the call to make two big plays to seal the game as time expired.
